Organic intimacy products from YES YES Company
It is great to collaborate with companies who have Women's Health and wellbeing at the forefront of their business. One such company is The YES YES Company which has developed a range of organic intimacy products including non-hormonal, plant-based vaginal moisturisers, lubricants and gentle intimate washes. YES products have been designed to enhance, rather than compromise vaginal health and are especially helpful for the relief of menopausal dryness
We can spend much time examining products for our body and face to ensure they are the best for our skin, but I wonder how many women transfer that thought to their intimate areas? With the hormonal rollercoaster during menopause, a leading cause of vaginal dryness, selecting the correct products and looking after our intimate health is vital.

Red Clover by Promensil
Promensil are experts in menopause support, providing a range of natural red clover supplements for long-term management and a cooling spray for instant relief from hot flushes and night sweats. Red Clover isoflavones help balance female hormones by mimicking the action of oestrogen in the body, which, in turn, help support women during the menopause. Unlike other red clover supplements, Promensil is backed by over 15 years of scientific research and uses only a standardised patented extraction process to guarantee the purity and quantity of Red Clover isoflavones at the optimal levels (40-80mg).
In a survey carried out by PharmaCare on 501 women who had tried Promensil, 9 our of 10 agreed that Promensil works for them!

Midlife wellbeing supplements by Vitabiotics
Vitabiotics offers a range of supplements suitable for the midlife transition. These include:
Menopace is an advanced range of menopause supplements, designed by experts to provide effective nutritional support. Optimal nutrition is important during and after the menopause where levels of specific hormones can change. Menopace Original is an effective, tried and tested one-a-day supplement of 22 nutrients scientifically formulated for during and after this period of change.
Osteocare Original is the UK's no.1 bone health formula and has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research to provide a rich source of calcium and co-factors including vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body. As we get older, particularly around the time of the menopause, our bone density can decrease as a result of the natural reduction in our oestrogen levels. Calcium helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women (a beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of at least 1200mg calcium from all sources). Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures (in women aged 50 years and older), so it is especially important to make sure we safeguard our intake of calcium during this time.

Liquid collagen from Absolute Collagen
With the drop in oestrogen during the menopausal transition comes a drop in collagen levels. This can impact on our skin, hair and nails, along with the lining of the vagina, potentially causing vaginal atrophy and painful intercourse.
Being able to top up collagen levels easily and effortlessly ensures that there is one less thing to worry about. Absolute Collagen provides an efficient and quick way to take a daily dose of collagen and help us support our bodies.
Absolute Collagen is offering a 10% discount if you quote MIDLIFE10 when ordering!
