Isoflavones are phytoestrogens, which literally means, plant estrogens. Isoflavones are similar in chemical structure to the body's own estrogen, and when consumed in adequate amounts they are able to mimic some of the effects of estrogen to assist with maintaining health and well being. Isoflavones however are weaker than our natural estrogen, and are selective in their action in the body. Isoflavones supplement the needs of women over 45 when levels of hormones are declining.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs
Yes you can, but you should not take HRT and Promensil® at the same time. The two therapies shouldn't be combined because of the potential risk of competitive inhibition (they may work against each other).
When you stop HRT, start taking Promensil® Double Strength daily for at least 2 months. The higher dose is recommended as it takes time for Promensil® to become effective (3 to 6 weeks) so there will be a period during the changeover that will feel uncomfortable as your menopause symptoms increase for a few weeks then begin to subside as Promensil® becomes effective. Make sure you take Promensil® every day with a meal to help it absorb into the body.

Estrogens play a vital role in maintaining a woman's health and well-being over her lifetime. Around the age of 35, a woman's own production of estrogens may slow. This is a challenging time for many women and the maintenance of lifestyle, well-being and normal body function is important to the enjoyment of this stage of life. The effects of giving supplemental estrogens are well known. They help relieve the symptoms of menopause, maintain healthy bones, as well as healthy cholesterol levels. They maintain arterial wall elasticity, the feel and appearance of the skin, normal mood and emotions, and the ability to concentrate.
