The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials those without unnecessary additives and preservatives every individual's outcome will be optimized.

Women who are peri- or postmenopausal need vitamins and minerals for maintenance of healthy bones, as well as specific nutritional support for hormonal changes they are experiencing.* Meta-Fem is a complete dietary supplement for women of either peri- or postmenopausal age.* It contains more calcium than our other multi formulas because women need more absorbable calcium and other nutrients that support good bone health.* Meta-Fem features calcium citrate-malate (shown to be significantly better absorbed than calcium carbonate or oyster shell calcium*). Meta-Fem also contains 1,600 IU of pure vitamin D in a full daily dose to help maintain bone and immune health.* Meta-Fem contains no iron, as the need for iron usually lessens as a woman enters menopause.* If a woman in the perimenopausal period is experiencing abnormally heavy menses, it is recommended that she take Nutri-Fem or add a blood-building formula such as Ferrasorb.*

In addition, specific nutrients and botanicals have been added with the special needs of this population of women in mind. Wild yam provides phytoprogesterone-like effects, while dong quai has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, along with other herbs, for the control of vasomotor symptoms of menopause.* Hesperidin methyl chalcone is also included because of its potential to ease hot flashes.* While these additions to Meta-Fem may lessen the occurrence of uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause, it has been designed to be used in conjunction with Meta-Balance for additional menopause support.*
