Menopause+ FAQs

Can I take the Menopause+ supplement in conjunction with HRT?

Our capsules only contain ingredients from natural food sources – they simply provide the nutrition in a much easier and convenient way. However, women who are on HRT are suggested to avoid Red Clover products due to the phytoestrogens. If you have any specific concerns, please do consult your doctor or health care professional as we are unable to advise on personal health conditions.

Can I take the Menopause+ supplement in conjunction with thyroxine?

Our capsules only contain ingredients from natural food sources – they just provide the nutrition in a much easier and convenient way.

Since they are not medical or pharmaceutical drugs and contain only natural ingredients, they should be completely safe to take alongside thyroxine. In terms of iodine content, taking a capsule is the same as eating 0.5g of the right type of seaweed as a food.

The natural levels of iodine allow for European Food Standards Agency health claims that our supplements support normal thyroid function and the production of thyroid hormones, amongst other approved claims.

We have many customers on a variety of medication, and specifically thyroid medication such as thyroxine, and who use the supplements with no reported issues.

The fact that we only use natural ingredients in our supplements is one of the reasons customers are attracted to our products.

However, please do consult with your doctor or medical professional if you have any specific concerns as we cannot know your wider medication or personal health conditions.

Can I take Menopause+ alongside other supplements such as cod liver oil or vitamin c?

Our capsules only contain ingredients from natural food sources – they just provide the nutrition in a much easier and convenient way.

Since they are not medical or pharmaceutical drugs and contain only natural ingredients, they should be completely safe to take alongside other supplements.

The nutrients in our capsules are in the same form as if they were eaten from a whole food source, so will be digested and used by your body in much the same way. Your body is used to receiving and requires lots of different nutrients throughout the day, so combining our supplements with others should not cause any adverse effects.

The fact that we only use natural ingredients in our supplements is one of the reasons customers are attracted to our products.

However, please do consult with your doctor or medical professional if you have any specific concerns as we cannot know your wider medication or personal health conditions.

How much iodine is it safe for me to consume?

As with all vitamins and minerals, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing!

In the UK there is no official upper limit for iodine intake. However, the British Dietetic Association estimate that the safe upper limit is around 600 micrograms a day for adults. In other countries, this limit is even higher.

We measure every batch of our seaweed for iodine using independent laboratories, because of this, we have a good and long-term knowledge of the iodine levels present in our supplements.

Each 0.5g capsule of our Pure Seaweed, Immunity+ and Menopause+ supplements typically contain 350 micrograms of iodine – well within the safe limits.

Iodine levels can vary within seaweed from species to species (there are over 10,000 worldwide). Therefore, it is important to know and trust the products you are using.

Which supplement is best for me?

All of Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful® supplements offer numerous benefits.

All of the supplements are entirely natural, plant-based and contain no bulking agents or artificial ingredients. We do recommend you always read the ingredients of any supplements.

The Importance of Iodine, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D

    Iodine:

    Iodine is an essential nutrient you have to get in your diet.  The primary sources are white fish and dairy, with seaweed being the only natural and good plant based source of this essential nutrient. 

    Without sufficient iodine, your thyroid may not work as it should, as iodine is required in the production of thyroid hormones which have many impacts on your health and wellness.  A diet insufficient in iodine can result in numerous health conditions, including an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), with symptoms including weight gain/difficulty losing weight, tiredness, sensitivity to cold, depression, brittle hair and nails, dry skin and more (see the NHS website here for more info).

    One of the main benefits of a natural source of iodine like seaweed is the fact it can be released into the body more slowly, and has longer retention compared to artificial sources such as potassium iodide for example. This was demonstrated in an independent research trial which demonstrated that the artificial iodine was excreted more quickly than that from our seaweed. For more information about the study, check out this article.

    There are over 10,000 different types of seaweed, and we stick to just the one, knowing the iodine level of each batch and ensuring sustainable harvesting.  The seaweed is carefully produced into a powder using proprietary technologies, and every batch is tested to for other aspects of nutrition and safety, along with unique traceability and DNA Authentication so you know exactly what it is you are getting

    Vitamin B-Complex:

    Vitamin B complex is the term used when all eight B-vitamins are present. They can be found in foods such as eggs, milk and fish – therefore, those following a more plant-based diet may find it difficult to consume all of the B-vitamins. The B-vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and wellbeing and have a direct impact on energy levels, brain function and cell metabolism. These benefits can be particularly important during the menopause, as Vitamin B complex is essential for optimal physiological and neurological function. Consuming all eight B-vitamins can enhance energy levels, mood and memory, as well as boosting skin and hair health.

    Vitamin C:

    Vitamin C is especially abundant in citrus fruits and is vital for protecting your cells and keeping them healthy. As your body cannot make or store Vitamin C, you need to ensure you are consuming a source of it every day. The benefits of Vitamin C can be particularly helpful when it comes to easing symptoms of the menopause, as it supports energy-yielding metabolism and plays a major role in keeping cartilage and bones strong. Vitamin C also has a role in synthesising the hormones that help to regulate your mood and ability to concentrate, and deficiency can worsen feelings of tiredness and fatigue. If all these benefits aren’t enough, it also helps to produce collagen, which helps keep skin looking healthy and youthful!

    Vitamin D3:

    Vitamin D is obtained from two sources: diet and from the action of sunlight on your skin.  An abundance of sunlight means you will get much of what is needed.  However, you do also need sources from your diet.  This is especially the case during winter months, if you are inside a lot of the time, have darker skin, and as you age due to a decline in your ability to produce vitamin D.  The organic and plant-based source used in Doctor Seaweed’s Weed & wonderful Menopause+ supplements is extracted from lichens, which are an amazing symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae or cyanobacteria.  The form extracted is vitamin D3, which is more commonly found from animal sources.  Research shows that D3 can be more effective than D2 (normally found in plants) at being absorbed by the body.

    Red Clover:

    Red clover is a flowering plant from the legume family, which has traditional uses in the treatment of asthma and whooping cough. However, more recently, red clover has been used to ease menopause symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats. This is because it contains a type of naturally occurring plant estrogen (phytoestrogen) known as isoflavones. These isoflavones can bind with estrogen receptors within a women’s body and so may be able to mimic the effects of natural estrogen. As well as relieving hot flushes and night sweats, there is some evidence to suggest that red clover may have other benefits for menopausal women, including improving heart health and bone density as well as improving the appearance and quality of skin and hair.

    Why Seaweed?

    A Forgotten Food

    Around 2.5 million years ago there was a transition from primitive to modern Homo sapiens. Research shows that at this time our ancestors moved to coastal environments and started eating seaweed. The nutrients that were (and still are!) in seaweed allowed for the evolution of the human brain. Seaweed is a natural rich iodine source which is essential for brain development, and forms a crucial part of this story.

    Harvested in Pristine Scottish Sea Lochs

    Our Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is sustainably wild harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate. Our seaweed is carefully dried and milled using our Patent Pending technologies which ensures high quality, nutrient rich, and fully traceable products from sea to store.

    Fabulous!

    I've been taking the original capsules for a while so was excited to try the new Menopause ones. I'm only 2 weeks in but already I can feel a difference. I'm less tired, have more energy and even a knee injury from the summer has suddenly stopped causing me significant discomfort. I've also noticed a change in my moods for the better and feel more chilled out and relaxed. Will absolutely carry on taking. Thank you, Craig for this new addition to the range!
