UPDATE MARCH 2013 – 6 MONTHS
An important update, I’ve been taking these without fail for 6 months now and I’m very happy to say the hot flushes have decreased by 95% – It’s actually 100% as I’ve not had one since Christmas, but I don’t want to tempt fate.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens in the summer, as even a slight variation in weather used to trigger the flushes off.
For the moment though, I’m amazed and delighted.
Recommended to me by a friend, these are one-a-day tablets containing 22 nutrients ‘scientificially formulated’ to contribute to the regulation of hormonal activity’.
The package also says they are the ‘UK’s No 1 Menopause Formula’, which is interesting because I’ve never noticed them before, but that could be because there are just so many tablets for menopausal symptoms, it’s hard to sort the gimmicks from ones that actually work, oh and the price isn’t too shabby either at £4.19 (although, as always shop around for the best price).
The thing is, do they work? Well, it’s week 5 (and really, I think I should trial them for 3 months before I say too much) but…so far, so good.
Very early days but the hot flushes and night sweats have decreased by about 20% which doesn’t sound like much unless you’ve actually experienced the feeling of melting from the inside out in public.
Early days, I’ll report back.

UPDATE JAN 2013
Now this is interesting, the hot flushes and horrendous night sweats decreased again to about 50%, BUT, in the six weeks running up to Christmas 2012, ALL my symptoms vanished, just like that, the most amazing Christmas present ever.
The bad news is that in the New Year, they came back but we’re now talking about 3 or 4 times a week, not a day, and at night, twice a week at most. I’m not sure if that’s due to the fact that I keep the bedroom very cool but I’m delighted.
I should also mention that Vitabiotics make other variations with added Red Clover and this and that, but I’m not taking any chances and sticking faithfully to the original formula.
