Promensil is a specifically formulated menopause supplement with a natural^, standardized isoflavone active ingredient which is well researched*, for women wanting natural^ menopause support.
Promensil’s unique ingredient, a Natural active- Standardized extract of Red Clover isoflavones, is rich in natural phyto-estrogens and continues to aid and support women’s general health during and after menopause. Red clover is one of the world’s oldest agricultural crops traditionally grown in Europe and the Far East, and more recently in America, as a medicinal herb for a variety of purposes and as a human food providing a source of protein.
Red clover (trifolium pratense) is a legume or pulse commonly seen growing in the fields and hedgerows across the UK. Other examples of legumes include chickpeas, lentils and soybeans. Red clover is known to be a rich source of natural isoflavones, containing all four types: genistein, daidzein, formononetin and biochanin (as opposed to soya, which only contains two).
Not all red clover products are the same. In a recent survey, 70% of UK isoflavone supplements contained less than the required 40 mg minimum effective level of isoflavones. (Determination of phytoestrogens in dietary supplements by LC-MS/MS. Clarke DB et al. Food Add Contam 2008;25(5):534-547)
Promensil extracts isoflavones from whole red clover plants harvested just before they blossom. The standardisation process used in the manufacture of Promensil ensures that each tablet in every pack supplies 40mg of isoflavones â€“ the level that is consumed in a typical legume based diet eaten in Asia or Japan, for example
