A comprehensive multi-vitamin / mineral supplement for women age 40+

Meta-Fem® is a daily supplement that provides peri- or postmenopausal women with vitamins and minerals for maintenance of healthy bones, as well as support for hormonal changes they are experiencing.

A multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is more important than most people think. Because of the state of the current food supply and the difficulty of consuming five servings of vegetables and fruits daily, few individuals receive all the needed nutrients from food.

Meta-Fem® is a complete nutritional supplement for women of peri- and postmenopausal age. It provides the active, readily usable forms of vitamins B2, B6, B12, and folate, and more calcium than Thorne's other multi- formulas because women need more absorbable calcium and other nutrients that support good bone health. Meta-Fem® features calcium citrate and malate (which is significantly better absorbed than calcium carbonate or oyster shell calcium). Meta-Fem® also contains botanical support for healthy hormone balance, as well as 1,600 IU of vitamin D3 in a full daily serving to help maintain bone and immune health.

A daily multi- could be considered "dietary insurance," a small price to pay to be certain you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you think you're eating right. Optimal health benefits can be achieved when a healthy diet is eaten in addition to taking a multi-. Meta-Fem® contains no iron, because the need for iron usually decreases when a woman enters menopause. If a woman in the perimenopausal stage of life is experiencing abnormally heavy menses, then it is recommended that she add a blood-building formula such as Ferrasorb®.

Take 4-8 capsules daily or as recommended by your health professional.
