Femarelle, have you heard of it before? If you haven’t I really recommend you read on…
Before I became a Mama and a blogger I was Business Director at a media agency and ultimately a media planner. There were times in my job when I sat through a presentation from a client or potential client and thought ‘I LOVE this brand I want to work with you’ or I saw a product that I could see would help people and desperately wanted to help spread the message through a smart advertising campaign.
Yesterday I felt that same passion return after hearing about a new product.
I was invited to the press launch of Femarelle yesterday at the Ivy in Tower Bridge. As I arrived and read some of the information around the room about the menopause I have to admit (at 33) I thought ‘why I am here’? The menopause is something I don’t think we hear much about and I for one feel totally uneducated about what will happen to my body, in potentially seven to ten years time.
But after two hours with the Femarelle team, I felt a lot more educated and I really want to share with you what I learned. I realised that not only was I privileged to be there, I hope that everyone gets the education into the menopause that I did.
As I arrived we were treated to smoothies, pastries and a beautiful view of London from the room we were in.
I sat down with fellow bloggers and magazine editors and writers to hear stats about the menopause. Did you know that there are an estimated 13 million women going through the menopause right now (which is one in three women)? That’s a huge number and something I had really underestimated.
The menopause is something that we all will go through at some point and unfortunately for many, it comes with lots of unwanted side effects; thinning hair, mood swings, hot flushes, fatigue, loss of libido and more serious side effects like an increased risk of heart disease.
Michelle Heaton, who talked at the event, has been through the menopause early and shared with us her story. Michelle is an early menopause survivor after having a double mastectomy and hysterectomy to reduce her risk of cancer and was talking yesterday to inspire other women as to how to tackle the challenges that menopause can bring.
Michelle was inspiring and I have a feeling she is going to help many women who are going through a similar situation to her.
Michelle has now teamed up with Femarelle which is a food supplement containing DT56a and a specially selected blend of vitamins and minerals to offer women three ranges to help them feel more healthy when going through the menopause.
As we tucked into a delicious brunch we heard from Professor Andrea Genazzani who explained more about why the menopause happens when it happens, what can happen and importantly the options women have available to them when they start to have symptoms. He explained how Femarelle is a non-hormonal option which provides women around the globe a safe and effective option to alleviate their menopausal symptoms.
There are three products; Rejuvenate, Recharge and Unstoppable.
Femarelle Rejuvenate targets the primary hormonal changes that start in your 40s. It can help with; better control over your decreased mood, improved sleep, increased energy levels and better skin elasticity.
Femarelle Recharge can help with better sleep, increased energy levels, control over mood changes, decreased anxiety and aggression, the return of sex drive and no estrogenic effect on the breast or uterus.
And finally Femarelle Unstoppable can help with; prolonged bone health through its unique bone-health properties, vaginal health, joint and muscle flexibility, better sleep and increased energy levels.
It was a really interesting day, I learned about the menopause something I really should have known more about, heard from Michelle Heaton who was inspiring and understood that there is a range of products that can help women ‘take back control’ when they’re going through the menopause.
If you want to find out more about Femarelle there is lots of information on their website.
