  • 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.

    Excellent Female Multi Vitamin

    I learned about Meta-Fem by Thorne Research 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 recommends 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 wont need when you take Meta-Fem.


    Pros

      I think it is more than worth the money.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    On the fence.

    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.


    Pros


    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.

    Energizing!

    Meta-Fem by Thorne Research was recommended to me by a doctor. Ive used it for many years and without it Im 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.

    Meta-Fem

    I have taken Meta-Fem by Thorne Research for over 10 years. I have Lupus and feel that the reason I always feel so well is because I get such a full benefit from these vitamins. My husband takes Als formula and we also take CoQ10 and Omegas from Thorne. It is a great product.
