Meta-Fem™ by Thorne Research was designed to be a complete vitamin and mineral supplement for women over 40 years of age.

How Meta-Fem works:

  • Provides a balanced ratio of the active forms of folic acid (L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate and folinic acid)
  • Can be used along with Meta-Balance for additional menopausal support
  • Provides botanicals specifically chosen to support a healthy hormonal balance
  • Includes active‚ bioavailable forms of vitamins B2 and B6
  • Contains the highly-absorbable citrate-malate forms of calcium and magnesium

The Thorne Research Difference

At the cornerstone of every manufacturer’s product line‚ you’ll find a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement. At Thorne research‚ you’ll find a high-quality product that was designed to meet the needs of you as an individual. Meta-Fem was made using the purest‚ most biologically available ingredients without unnecessary preservatives and additives. This philosophy applies to all of Thorne’s products because it optimizes the outcome for each individual.

Is Meta-Fem Right for You?

Meta-Fem was designed for women who are peri or postmenopausal. It is at this time in a woman’s life when she needs to ensure she’s getting the appropriate vitamins and minerals to maintain healthy bones and to support the hormonal changes her body is experiencing. Meta-Fem contains more calcium than many other multi vitamin and mineral supplements because‚ during this time‚ women need more absorbable calcium (along with other nutrients) to support an increasing need in order to maintain good bone health. This is also why Meta-Fem features one of the most absorbable forms of calcium‚ calcium citrate-malate. In fact‚ in studies‚ calcium citrate-malate was shown to be better absorbed than calcium carbonate or oyster shell calcium. In this multi vitamin and mineral supplement‚ you’ll also find 1‚600 IU of vitamin D3‚ which is a complete daily dose for women in this stage of their lives.

What you won’t find in this product is iron. This is because a woman’s need for iron usually decreases as she enters her menopausal years. This supplement may work for women in their pre-menopausal years‚ but if they have heavy periods‚ they should discuss an iron supplement‚ such as Nutri-Fern‚ or a blood-building formula‚ such as Ferrasorb‚ with their doctor.

Botanicals

In addition to meeting basic nutritional needs‚ specific botanicals and nutrients are added to Meta-Fem to help a woman through this physically challenging period of their lives. The included wild yam works much like a phytoprogesterone product‚ while dong quai is present because it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to relieve hot flashes. Hesperidin methyl chalcone is another potential hot flash inhibitor that is added to this vitamin and mineral supplement.

While many women may find that the additional botanicals added to meta-fem help control menopausal symptoms‚ many women may still need more support. In these cases‚ Meta-Balance is suggested to help keep irritating pre and peri-menopausal symptoms at bay.

Naturopath has high hopes
June 25, 2013
I am starting Meta-Fem today and already writing so that if anyone has the many symptoms that I have experienced without help from bio identical hormones they might consider what my naturopath suggests. After menopause she feels that women may not need HRT and looked further to see what would help. She feels Meta-Fem will help me to get off the HRT and lessen or alleviate - insomnia, irritability, brain fog, weight gain, and exhaustion. I'll let you know!

Not sure I can rate this product but I sure can't tolerate it.
May 14, 2013
Meta-Fem makes me feel terrible as though I have not slept for days. I think something in it disagrees with me. I only write this because others may have similar reactions to it. Overall I love Thorne products and this is the first one that I feel is not good for me. It may be the Hesperidin. I have taken it before, but in larger doses and found it was terrible for me. I thought I would try again since it would be part of a blend...
Pros:
Not able to evaluate.
Cons:
Too many capsules.

Great for the woman over 40!!
March 9, 2013
Recommnded by my naturopath and I love them!! Great value for the benefits.
Pros:
I feel better since taking the vitamins. I have more energy and I believe they provide a balancing of the hormonal changes that occur for women as they age.
Cons:
Taking 3 twice a day is not my favorite thing to do, but the benefits out weigh the pill popping struggle I have.

Recommended by my Doctor.
January 28, 2013
My doctor is the one who recommended Thorne Meta-Fem. That's a trusted recommendation. She said this brand is the highest quality and integrity. I also find that the capsules are manageable to swallow, not like the large pills the popular store brands make. I've been on Meta-fem for a few years, and I love them.
Pros:
They are highest quality you can trust. They are easy and manageable to swallow.
Cons:
There is nothing to dislike

Energizing
June 15, 2011
This product was recommended to me by a doctor. I've used it for many years, and without it, I'm asleep in the chair, sometimes as early as 6pm - my definitive clue that I forgot to take my pills that day. Excellent service - comes surprisingly quickly. Great company. Good product.

On the fence.
March 18, 2011
I am on the fence about this product. I have been taking it for a few months now. Dosage recommendation is 8 capsules a day. I only take 4. I will probably look for a product that I can take one a day and get what I need.
Cons:
Recommended dosage is 8 tablets a day. That is a lot when you have to add it to other supplements you may be taking.

Excellent Female Multi Vitamin
March 10, 2011
I learned about this item by reading ratings on vitamin rating/comparison sites on line. I believe it has been instrumental in keeping me healthy through the winter flu/cold season. Meta Fem recommend s 6 capsules a day. I take 4 daily and assume my healthy diet more than covers for the rest. I would recommend it as a top rate multi vitamin. Just think of all the money you save on over the counter cold/flu medications that you won't need when you take Meta-Fem.
Pros:
Read my review - I think it is more than worth the money.

A keeper
November 16, 2010
I was searching for a multi vegetarian for women over 40 and this was suggested to me from my compound pharmacy. I was given 12 for a trial basis. I was so amazed-no stomach upset and I actually felt it gave me energy without the jitters. Also, I am suffering from hot flashes in the 3rd degree day/night and it has gotten down to only maybe once a night I wake up-what more can I say except-I PRAY YOU CONTINUE THIS PRODUCT-IT IS A LIFESAVER TO ME.
Pros:
Everything
Cons:
Not one thing-except I'm concerned it won't be in stock when I need it.
