Happy Mammoth vs MenoMe®

MenoMe® New Zealand

Who is Happy Mammoth?

Happy Mammoth is an offshore natural health and nutraceutical company dedicated to solving complex health problems. They offer evidence-based formulas to help women regain control of their health, emotions and wellbeing.

Who is MenoMe®?

MenoMe® is a New Zealand owned and operated company that supports women through all phases of menopause, creating a community of like-minded, empowered women. Our evidence-based supplements are designed by menopausal women for women in menopause.

The Differences between Happy Mammoth and MenoMe®

1. MenoMe® is Compliant with New Zealand Dietary Supplement Regulations

Numerous international brands, such as Happy Mammoth, have the ability to sell dietary supplements in our market without adhering to New Zealand regulations as administered by MedSafe, a business unit of New Zealand’s Ministry of Health. Consequently, they have the flexibility to make claims about their products that New Zealand registered businesses cannot.

For assurance in choosing products that meet the New Zealand law and are locally made, we encourage you to purchase from New Zealand-owned companies like MenoMe®.

2. How MenoMe® Supplements Can Help:

Menopause is our one & only game™.

Our products are designed to cater to all stages of menopause, acknowledging the unique requirements of perimenopause and post-menopause. We provide evidence-based supplements tailored specifically for each stage.

Perimenopause Support:

Merry Peri® is a clever vegan-friendly combination of Saffron, Fenugreek, and Sage formulated to support hormone balance, normal body temperature, restful sleep, and a healthy mood.

Post-Menopause Support:

In post-menopause, individuals not only continue to experience the symptoms of perimenopause but can no longer rely on the protective effects of their body’s own estrogen, making them more susceptible to other health risks. Perky Post® addresses this by adding Vitamins D3 and K2 and Resveratrol to the Saffron, Fenugreek, and Sage combination to support bone health, mental clarity, energy levels, and a healthy libido.

But wait, there’s more!

Two of the lesser-known but extremely distressing symptoms of menopause are hair loss, or thinning hair, and digestive disturbances. We have both of those covered with LotsaLocks®, containing a functional protein sourced from New Zealand sheep’s wool, and Happy Go Tummy®, a prebiotic-probiotic combination featuring Gold Kiwifruit powder.

3. MenoMe® is about building community and support

Unlike Happy Mammoth and other supplement brands, menopause is our one & only game™. We live it and breathe it because we are going through it too. We are committed to building a supportive community of like-minded women, providing understanding, encouragement and a shared journey through each stage of menopause.

5. Choice with Menopause Supplements is a Good Thing

In one of our early Women on Fire® podcast episodes, we had the pleasure of interviewing Dr Linda Dear of MenoDoctor. She demystified menopause, making it easy for our listeners to understand.

Part of the conversation that really stuck with us is the importance of having a variety of menopause treatments available for women to choose from because there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

Our bodies and beliefs are all different, and women need access to the tools that best suit them on their menopause journey. For the team at MenoMe®, that’s natural menopause supplements, for others, that may be HRT or a focus on nutrition and lifestyle. In our opinion, the best solution for any woman is the one that brings them relief, wherever they find it. (Of course, we are always delighted when it’s a MenoMe® product that delivers!)

Why we believe MenoMe® is the best choice for New Zealand

We believe MenoMe® is the best choice for New Zealand and here’s why: We are committed to our local community, offering a range of menopause solutions that adhere to our country’s regulations administered by the Ministry of Health. We prioritise transparency and ethical practices, making MenoMe® a trusted choice for those seeking New Zealand-made menopause supplements.

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
