Femeno 1 is our menopause supplement for active women!
As we age, our body produces fewer hormones. This is known as menopause. Female menopause usually occurs between the ages of forty-five and fifty-five. Menstrual periods become irregular and eventually stop entirely. The last menstrual cycle is called ‘menopause’, but women can already experience symptoms in the years before the last menstrual cycle due to this drop in estrogen levels. Symptoms include:
- hot flashes;
- difficulty sleeping or staying asleep;
- tiredness and loss of energy;
- dry skin and dry mucous membranes;
How does Femeno 1 work?
Femeno 1 contains natural ingredients and is rich in phyto-estrogens. The list below contains the active ingredients and their properties:
- Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, activates the natural energy in your body and is beneficial for a good mental balance;
- Biotin (Vit B8) is good for your hair and maintaining normal skin and mucous membranes, supports your energylevel and contributes to mental resilience;

- Dong Quai or female ginseng is one of the most commonly used ingredients in Traditional Chinese Medicin (TCM) for relieving symptoms of menopause. It also supports the normal function of the urinary tract*.

Estrogens and Skin.
Estrogens have an affect on the thickness of the skin and have a stimulating effect on the production of the body's own hyaluronic acid and collagen. Estrogens ensure that the skin has the right thickness, firmness and hydration, thereby preventing or slowing down the appearance of wrinkless.
If you'd like to relieve the symptoms of menopause, opt for Femeno 1, which can also be combined with Femeno 2 or Femeno 3.
