Conquer Menopause, The Naked Way
Most women will experience menopause at some point in their lives and happens when our hormones start to change and we no longer undergo monthly menstrual cycles. Menopause can occur naturally, as a result of surgery or cancer treatment, and genetics also play a role.
Approximately 13 million women in the UK are currently peri or menopausal*.
This accounts for 1/3 of the female population. However, due to a lack of awareness, a lack of training among some medical professionals and social stigma, women's needs during this critical life change are frequently ignored, undervalued, or overlooked.
Here at The Naked Pharmacy, we understand that going through the menopause, is a deeply personal transition and no two menopause journeys are the same. This is why our promise to you as a woman, is to listen to your individual experience and support you and your journey - your choice.
SYMPTOMS OF MENOPAUSE
Menopause is a natural biological process. But the physical symptoms, such as hot flushes, and emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy or effect emotional health.
Our expert pharmacists have harnessed the power of nature and formulated natural supplements that are scientifically proven to help manage the symptoms of menopause.
LOW MOOD. ANXIETY. FATIGUE. BRAIN FOG. HOT FLUSHES. LOW SEX DRIVE.
Saffron, often referred to as the "sunshine spice", is derived from the Crocus Sativus flower and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Apart from its culinary applications, saffron extract has been proven to help manage symptoms of menopause such as low mood, anxiety, brain fog, low sex drive, and hot flushes.
We source our saffron from Catalonia in Northern Spain, which produces some of the highest strength saffron (3.5%) with the three bioactives we’re looking for (crocin, saffranal and picrocrocin).
Our Saffrosun supplement range is made with the exact effective strength of bioactives proven to work in clinical trials. Each batch is tested so that we can guarantee the strength and quality of our ingredients.

DIGESTION. WEIGHT. SKIN. MENTAL HEALTH
Due to the hormonal changes, you won’t be surprised to hear that menopause can reduce the diversity of our gut microbiome. A balanced and diverse gut microbiome is essential not only for digestive health but also extremely beneficial in supporting our immune system, skin health, weight, mental health, and hormonal balance. Therefore by looking after your gut, you can alleviate many of the unwanted symptoms of menopause.
Packed with a powerful blend of 21 probiotics and organic prebiotics, Gut Love contains over 19 billion friendly bacteria and has been formulated to help restore the healthy bacteria in the gut.
Most probiotic supplements only contain a few strains of healthy bacteria, however, our unique formula provides a diverse mix of live bacteria, which will help replenish your gut flora with a variety of strains offering many more health benefits. Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Lactobacillus reuteri are just 4 of the strains of probiotics in Gut Love that will specifically aid with hormonal balance.
HAPPY GUT, HAPPY MIND
Your brain and your gut talk to each other all the time through hormones and neurotransmitters. This is known as the gut-brain axis. That “gut feeling” you get or the butterflies in your stomach is actually your brain and gut communicating!
95% of the body's 'happy' hormone, serotonin, is made in the gut.
Imbalances in the gut microbiome can lead to impaired serotonin production and mood imbalances. Gut Love will help to restore these gut imbalances and help maintain healthy serotonin levels to help you feel calmer, happier, more focused, and less stressed!
SLEEP. MUSCLE & NERVE FUNCTION.
The imbalance and rollercoaster of women's hormones during the menopause can effect the nervous system causing a wide variety of challenging symptoms including anxiety, restlessness, and sleep problems.
Taking just two capsules of Marine Magnesium each night can settle restless muscles, calm the nervous system, and promote a healthy sleep cycle.
BLOATING. WEIGHT. METABOLISM.
Hormonal changes in menopause can contribute to symptoms of weight gain and changes in our metabolism.
Metabolic Gold contains Bergamot fruit and Artichoke leaf extracts which have been scientifically proven to help with weight management, cholesterol and sugar levels. By impacting these parameters, Metabolic Gold will have a positive effect on your metabolism and help to reduce those unwanted cravings!
We recommend this supplement is taken for at least 3 to 4 months at a dose of one capsule twice a day after food.
Not all supplements are the same in the way they are sourced, manufactured, tested and packaged.
Natural vitamins are sourced from whole food such as algae, fruit or vegetables. They are dried, concentrated and their nutrients are extracted (generally with water or alcohol) to form a nutritional supplement. In this way, the beneficial compounds remain in their natural form, just as you would find them in your food but at much higher concentrations.
Synthetic vitamins are usually made artificially from chemicals within a laboratory or factory, using solvent extraction and chemicals and can contains impurities.
So why does this matter?
Many women experience increased sensitivity to foods, cosmetics, and ingredients during the stages of perimenopause and menopause - things that we happily ate or put on our skin all of sudden cause a reaction or embarrassing consequences.
Supplements sourced from nature are easily recognised by the body leading to high nutrient absorption and utilisation whilst minimising any side effects or potential medication interactions.
LIFESTYLE GURU SUSANNAH CONSTANTINE SAYS:
“ Two years ago I was experiencing what every other woman my age faces - hot sweats, aches, restless legs, poor sleep and lack of focus - and was struggling to find any effective solutions. I have never been a fan of pills and will avoid synthetic drugs where possible so was reluctant to find the answers there. I felt like there must be a better solution but didn’t know where to look.
A friend recommended two natural remedies Saffrosun and Marine Magnesium made by The Naked Pharmacy. I was genuinely surprised to find that after a few nights, my sleep had improved dramatically. I felt calmer and my mood was more balanced than it had been in a long while.
After a few months of using these remedies, I went to meet their Chief Pharmacist Kevin Leivers and his team. Kevin’s background is in mainstream pharmacy and he’s taken what he learned in this environment and adapted it to an industry he feels passionately about. Their ethos is to only produce remedies based on Kevin’s pharmaceutical training and core beliefs rather than commercial trends and this really struck a chord with me.
I think it’s easy to get lost trying to navigate the world of natural supplements and so I love the fact that there is a scientist I can trust at the helm of this company.”
