Reduce the Symptoms of Menopause with USANA® EstroPro™
Original content from USANA’s askthescientists.com
Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life, which signals the end of her reproductive years. The symptoms of menopause can wreak havoc in an otherwise orderly existence.
The symptoms are different in every woman, ranging from severe to no symptoms at all. Fortunately, there is a nutritional support product that can offer relief from these disruptive symptoms. This product, USANA EstroPro™, provides a blend of four botanical extracts which have been clinically studied and chosen for their unique properties.
Two tablets, if taken regularly, will assist in alleviating the root causes of the symptoms, allowing you to take control over your symptoms. One tablet in the morning and one before bedtime is the recommended dosage for the best results.
EstroPro™ offers the benefits of a naturally derived estrogen-like compound— isoflavones from soy and red clover, as well as licorice and flax seed, which can diminish your symptoms and allow you to once again live life on your terms.
Menopause: Before, During and After – What to Expect.
Perimenopause precedes menopause and usually starts when a woman is in her forties, but can start earlier or later in some cases. Typically, during the first few years, the changes your body experiences may be so gradual you may not even realise they are there but will continue to grow in intensity as you approach the next stage.
This is the ideal time to get started on a daily regime of USANA EstroPro™ while symptoms are still subtle, so the benefits of the product can be fully realized by the time you reach menopause, usually one to one and a half years after you start experiencing irregular menstrual cycles.
The side effects of low estrogen and low progesterone can include:
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Fatigue (caused by sleep disruptions)
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Changes in sex drive
- Weight gain
- Irregular periods
- Skin changes
Menopause generally begins 12 months after your last menstrual cycle. By now, the ovaries have been depleted of estrogen and progesterone and this is when the full effects of the menopausal symptoms may present themselves.
This stage of the process typically takes several years, depending on the individual.
Some women do not experience any symptoms at all; however, approximately 85% of women will experience some, if not all, of these disruptive symptoms.
If you started taking USANA EstroPro™ during perimenopause, you would have a head start to realizing these benefits:
- Relief for hot flashes, insomnia and fatigue, and mood swings
- Gentle estrogenic effects which support hormone imbalance
- Support for bone and heart health after menopause
Since EstroPro™ is a phytoestrogen supplement, it is most effective during this phase of the menopause process, providing relief from the symptoms, as it was designed to do by the scientists at USANA Health Sciences.
The gentle effects and natural ingredients of EstroPro™ could help to balance hormones.
Two tablets of EstroPro™ provide 48 milligrams (mg) of soy and red clover isoflavones, 105 mg of flaxseed, and 60 mg of licorice daily.
Post-menopause is the time after the symptoms of menopause are over. You may continue to see some symptoms, but they should be minimal until they disappear entirely. Your body can now settle back to normal (without the hassle of a monthly menstrual cycle).
Your Guide to Managing the Symptoms of Menopause
The side effects of menopause could be unpredictable and can be stressful. Here are some tips for relief:
- Phytoestrogen nutrients in EstroPro™ offer relief for some of the common symptoms of menopause. With regular use, EstroPro™ could ease the effects of menopause.
- Exercise regularly. Start early in the day. Exercising at night can make it harder to sleep.
- Eat healthy. Include nutritious whole foods — consider adding more soy to your diet. Soy adds the benefits of phytoestrogen.
- Limit caffeine, alcohol, and hot beverages.
- Layer the clothing you sleep in so you can add or remove clothing as your body temperature fluctuates.
- Keep lights low in the bedroom, providing a peaceful, cool ambiance.
- Practice deep breathing when a hot flash overcomes your body.
EstroPro™ – Cool Relief for Hot Flashes
None of the symptoms of menopause are pleasant, but by far, the worst are hot flashes. The effects cause intense discomfort and can be embarrassing if you happen to experience one in public. These sudden flashes of heat are referred to by the scientific community as “vasomotor symptoms” because they are caused by a sudden restriction and dilation of blood vessels.
Effective management of this and other symptoms of menopause can be critical to your well-being if not managed effectively.
Evidence shows that the combination of ingredients in USANA EstroPro™ can provide much-needed relief to tame the intense effects of hot flashes and other uncomfortable symptoms you may experience during menopause.
Manage Mood Swings
USANA EstroPro™ benefits extend beyond hot flashes. It also provides the support you need to support and maintain normal sleep patterns.
Changes in hormone levels also affect brain function by causing a disruption in how your body regulates the temperature of your body. These changes can also impact your mood, due to a decrease in the release of neurotransmitters, nor-epinephrine, and serotonin, which all contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness.
Menopause related changes in estrogen can disrupt your circadian rhythms causing further sleep disruptions. Fluctuations in various hormone systems all add up to creating an “off-balance” feeling.
These are considered normal changes for women during menopause; however, the ingredients in EstroPro™ have proven effective to lessen the impacts of menopause by offering an alternative to estrogen.

Benefits of Cardiovascular Health During Menopause with EstroPro™
By the time we reach middle age, we have learned how important our cardiovascular health is to our overall well-being. Estrogen protects our cardiovascular health by maintaining healthy endothelial function. The changes in endothelial function associated with menopause could be linked to vasomotor symptoms or hot flashes.
Soy, red clover, and flaxseed have proven effective in supporting healthy cholesterol levels, as long as they are within the optimal limits. Red clover may also provide support for controlling normal triglyceride levels, as well.
