Remifemin® vs MenoMe®

MenoMe® New Zealand

Who is Remifemin®?

Remifemin® is a trademark of the German company Schaper & Brümmer GmbH Co. KG, and is licensed to pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline for international sales. The Remifemin® product portfolio comprises effective preparations for some of the symptoms of menopause. The original Remifemin® product has been sold in Europe for over 40 years.

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. We have been operating in New Zealand since 2015.

The Differences between Remifemin® and MenoMe®

1. Remifemin® is a black cohosh formula.

Due to reported cases of abnormal liver function associated with black cohosh (1), all manufacturers of black cohosh products, including Remifemin® are required to have a warning statement on their label.

Remifemin® relieves the most commonly known menopause symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and irritability.

2. MenoMe® supplements

At MenoMe® we do not use black cohosh in any of our products.

Our range of supplements address a broad range of menopause woes. These include the lesser known issues of digestive disturbances, hair thinning and loss of bone density.

Additionally, we acknowledge the unique requirements of perimenopause and post-menopause and provide evidence-based supplements tailored specifically for each stage.

Menopause is our one & only game™.

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. This makes 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.

MenoMe Team

4. MenoMe® has a local team

We are a small, passionate New Zealand-based team operating between the stunning Bay of Plenty and rural Hawera, Taranaki. We aren’t just another supplement company – we are fellow Kiwis dedicated to helping women on the same menopause rollercoaster.

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. This is 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.
