Can this be taken alongside your foundational blends?
Mood-Food can be taken alongside our Peri-Boost. It has some of the same core ingredients as Meno-Boost (both formulations contain Ashwagandha and Lemon balm at recommended daily dosages), however it can be considered on an individual basis if these cluster symptoms are persistent. Simply book time for a call with us first!
I thought your foundational blends delivered everything I needed. Why is this offered as an addition now?
We’re a brand based on insight and community. And, over the last two years our tracking studies have highlighted the persistent nature of these cluster symptoms for many in our community. Whilst we see a downward trajectory of symptom severity, sometimes life events mean we need an additional boost to keep us feeling balanced. In addition, many of us will notice changes in mood, brain fog and sleep disturbances ‘first’ and want to tackle these symptoms first too.
How do I know if I need this as well as your foundational powders?
If you have been taking our foundational powders for more than 3 months and are still experiencing symptoms such as brain fog, anxiety, poor sleep and fatigue, Mood-Food may be what you need. This formulation was formulated to provide an additional boost to the most persistent symptoms we see in our community across the menopause journey.
Equally, you may choose to try Mood-Food on its own first, as these cluster symptoms are often early signs of perimenopause.
Are your blends safe to take if I have been diagnosed with a hormone sensitive cancer, or have a history of hormone sensitive cancer in my family?
All the blends in our range harness wholefoods, herbs and botanicals as well as vitamins and minerals, which means isoflavones are present. Isoflavones act as phytoestrogens by mimicking natural estrogens in the body.
Research on the role of phytoestrogens in estrogen-dependent cancers including some types of breast cancer is inconclusive. So, although consumption of soy foods (which contain isoflavones) are considered healthy and safe, Peri-Boost contains higher concentrations of soya isoflavones than food. Meno-Boost contains Red Clover extract at a therapeutic but low dosage level. Red Clover also contains isoflavones.
The medical guidance around the inclusion of isoflavones in the diet for women with a history of some cancers is mixed. Without knowing the detail of your story, our advice would be not to take our foundational powders, Peri-Boost and Meno-Boost. Mood-Food, our first powdered capsule targeting the cluster symptoms of mood, brain fog and anxiety, contains ingredients with no known contraindications with hormone sensitive cancers.
However, your health is our priority. Please ensure you do your own research and talk to your healthcare provider before introducing Mood Food into your routine.
Why did you choose these 3 symptoms to focus on?
Because we know from our community, as well as research into the most persistent menopause symptoms, that these three often start in early perimenopause and can extend beyond menopause with significant impact on quality of life. These cluster symptoms are critical to address because they also have the potential to impact our long term health too.
