  • 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

    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. Ill let you know!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
