…new blend of herbs and micronized mushrooms to make its official debut at Canadian Health Food Association conference in Toronto Sept. 12-14, 2014

DUNCAN, B.C. (Thursday, September 4th, 2014) –Purica, the makers of Recovery® and a full line of natural health foods and supplements, is introducing Menopause Relief in conjunction with the upcoming Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) conference and trade show, September 12-14, at the Toronto Convention Centre.

The new Purica Menopause Relief product – a hormone balancing formula — has been developed to help women maintain their quality of life through the physical and mental discomforts that are typically associated with this phase of life. It helps to support the three key glands that work together to provide balance for a woman’s hormonal health; the adrenals, ovaries and thyroid. As such, it is the company’s first product designed to serve women exclusively.

“Purica is committed to the development of natural health foods and supplements that help men and women of all ages make the most of their lives but we acknowledge that our Menopause Relief product is something special designed exclusively for women,” said Jason Watkin, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Purica.

“Adrenalin has more of a negative impact on women than men and adrenal stress can also upset the health and balance between the ovaries and the thyroid, weakening them over time,” said Tawnya Ritco, a Vancouver-based Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) who doubles as part of the team of product specialists at Purica. “Purica Menopause Relief has been formulated to help women regain this vital balance and allow them to manage the often challenging markers of this change of life.”

Purica Menopause Relief naturally balances women’s hormones, halts hot flashes and night sweats, regulates mood, enhances skin youthfulness, reduces stress and enhances libido. A placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial concluded that Menopause Relief also promotes sleep, increases energy and helps reduce nervousness, without any significant side effects and without the risk factors associated with certain plants such as soy and Black Cohosh.

It contains a synergistic, proprietary blend of hot-water extracted herbs – Giant Angelica, Wilford’s Cynanchum and Sok-Dan – working in tandem with three certified organic, micronized mushrooms; Chaga, Cordyceps and Lion’s Mane.

“All of the ingredients in Purica Menopause Relief have been carefully assessed to ensure women derive the maximum benefit from the formula with minimal risk,” said Watkin, who doubles as Chief Formulator for Purica.

Purica Chaga, which is grown in a certified organic facility and micronized for superior absorption and assimilation, is one of the flagship ingredients of Purica Menopause Relief. It helps relieve stress, increases energy and promotes youthfulness of the skin, hair and nails. Cordyceps helps enhance vitality, libido and immune response by providing all-important support for the adrenal glands. Lion’s Mane helps improve memory and cognitive response, along with digestion.

“Purica Menopause Relief has been several years in the making,” said Ritco. “We’re very happy to be adding it to our family of natural health foods and supplements, particularly given that we believe it will help redefine the meaning of menopause for tens of thousands of woman across Canada and around the world.”

Purica’s Ritco and Watkin will be officially introducing Purica Menopause Relief at the CHFA conference next week.

  • Polly says:

    I have just started taking the Purica Menopause Relief formula…and after 18 years of hot flashes, dryness etc.( am only 61) I am sincerely hoping that this helps. Approximately long after starting this will I be aware of symptom relief?
    Thank you
    A very hopeful client

  • Marlene Willock says:

    I just started the Menopause Relief formula. I am very excited to see if this helps.
    thank you,
    I will let you know..

  • Tracey says:

    Is 44 years old too young to take this medication ?

    • Purica says:

      It is best to always check with your healthcare provider to see if you are entering the perimenopausal or menopausal transition. This product is safe to administer and recommended most for these transition periods of a woman’s life.

  • Cheryl says:

    I have tried many herbal menopause formulas and the ones that have provided menopausal relief caused weight gain – ugh — I am now trying your product – have you had any feedback on weight gain or weigh loss with it?

    Thanks for your time and have a nice day!!

  • Zelda Sawatzky says:

    What are the concerns with this product if taking longer than 5 weeks? After taking Menopause for five weeks, how long should you wait before taking it again?

    • Purica says:

      Thank you for your interest. This label statement about duration of use is like a standardized style of caution the NHPD requires for new products in certain categories. This product is used safely and effectively on an ongoing basis.

  • Catherine says:

    I want to try this product so badly however the warnings concerning breast cancer in immediate family members etc. scared me off.

    Is there an increased risk when taking this product?

    • Jason says:

      Thanks for the question. The ingredients in singular form do not carry these warnings and there is no indication that they should carry these warnings in the combination. It seems likely that the warnings are added so that women will not simply self-diagnose peri-menopause or menopause without consulting a physician, and this is advisable. In other words, we feel that the warnings are not at all warranted.

  • Elaine says:

    I’m 63 and have been taking the product for about 5 months and believe it’s benefited my skin–seems more normal overall and facial skin seems finer pored and smoother. Coincidentally, I’ve been quite sleepy in the evenings during this period and checking side of effects of the individual ingredients online, I’m not seeing anything associated with that. There are other reasons I could be needing extra rest, but wanted to check if there is anything reported in the way of affecting the sleep cycle.

    • Purica says:

      Hello Elaine,

      To my knowledge, inducing sleepiness has never been an issue. On the other hand, helping people sleep more soundly is a common side benefit

  • Nicola says:

    hello…….i have been taking Menopause Relief for just over two months. I have seen benefits in reduced heat. The poor sleep that I have had for years, is much worse lately and breast soreness and bloating came on again recently. I have missed four menstrual cycles. It is my understanding that these symptoms are caused by high estrogen. Could the MR be a factor in this. Also noticed improvement in skin. Many thanks.

    • Purica says:

      Thank you for your feedback. The Menopause Relief is designed so as not to stimulate production of hormones in regards to estrogen. Most of the positive affects of Menopause a Relief have to do with improved adrenal functioning. Breast tenderness can be related to quite a few different factors, so it is difficult to say what may be a factor without further testing.

      Have you tried a reduced dose?

  • Sarah says:

    I have tried this product and was pleased with some of the results that I received…although I did acquire other side affects which was constipation. Is this a common complaint with this product or has anyone experienced this.? I am not sure if I want to continue taking it. now.

    • Purica says:

      Hello Sarah,

      Thank you for emailing us about this. To my knowledge, we have not received this comment before. Oftentimes, as with our product Recovery, if a product initially results in digestive irregularity it can be successfully alleviated by increasing water intake. If you decide to try this, could you please give us feedback? We would love to hear more from you.

      • Marianne says:

        I just started taking this and I’m still in week one, I have found I have constipation everyday now and was just fine before I started this, the reason why i’m reading up on this product is because of this problem and I drink about 10 glasses of water a day. I’m worried it will get worst and I have to work each day with this feeling.

        • Purica says:

          Thank you for your question, Rebalance is a very popular product that we have had on the market for over two years. Constipation is not a known side effect of the Rebalance product. I would suggest stop taking it for 1 week and see if it goes away before starting again. A good effervescent Magnesium is a great addition to a diet when people are experiencing constipation.

  • Meagan says:

    Can this product be used to treat PMS and or help regulate periods?

    • Purica says:

      Hello Meagan,

      Although the NPN for menopause relief is designated for menopause and perimenopause, there are women who use it successfully for PMS relief.

  • MJ MacLeod says:

    Hi. Just listen toa radio program while in the car…think it was Natural Health. Talking about Menopause and the use of the menopause relief Product. I am over 65 and but still have some hot flashes, vaginal dryness, etc. I also am on lots of drugs for Rheumatoid arthritis. Would/should I try this product?? I was ver interested in what they sai about the 3 mushrooms in the Menopause product so am really interesting in trying this. Lots of stress in my life, inflammations, etc. or do have another prods contains those mushrooms? Thanks for your help.

    • Purica says:

      Hello MJ,

      Yes, you can still take Menopause Relief and we do also have the mushrooms in singular form and in combination.

  • Valerie says:

    Will Menopause Relief help me if I do not have a thyroid. I have thyroid cancer and have had my thyroid removed.

    • Purica says:

      Menopause relief is more associated with the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal cortex and so in our opinion it should work just fine without thyroid involvement. Please keep us posted as we are interested to hear of your experience and results.

  • Wendy says:

    I have had both ovaries and tubes removed. Is it safe to take Purica Menopause Relief with prescription medications such as Lipitor, Ezetrol (for High Cholestrol) and Diovan (High Blood Pressure).

  • Beverly Bond says:

    I have been taking Menopause Relief for about 7 months now. I just love it for relief of hot flashes and night sweats. All the other relief is just a great bonus. Unfortunately I have had a major allergic reaction to something this summer. I have a rash everywhere. I am discontinuing your product to see if it is something in it that is causing the reaction. Have you heard of or is there any reason that there could be a build up of the product in your system causing a reaction like this, or have you heard of anyone being allergic to it?
    Thanks for your help

    • Purica says:

      Thanks for your email. This product is a long term use product, so this is perhaps not an issue. Allergies typically manifest early on, but anything is possible. Anything to do with change of season, or stress?

  • Joan Blackman says:

    I am wondering if I can take this product in conjunction with another herbal product which has chaste tree, peony, rehmannia and Beuplerum root.

    • Purica says:

      Hello Joan,

      Menopause Relief can be taken with other products and drugs, however with menopause it is sometimes best to utilize one product at a time to try to balance everything most effectively.

  • Trinna says:

    When is the best time to take it? In the am and mid afternoon? Do you need to take on empty stomach or is it
    Best to take with food?

    • Purica says:

      Hi Trinna,

      we recommend taking two capsules twice a day. First in the morning, either before or after breakfast. The second in the evening after dinner. You can take it safely with or without food. Here’s a simple tip: flip the bottle upside down after you take your morning dose to remind yourself to take it in the evening!

  • Gordana Milosevic says:

    been using a product for almost 2 months, my blood pressure got elevated in spite of taking blood meds regularly and I started my period ( more like light bleeding ) after not having any period for 6 months..I am 54 years old…wondering if any of components could cause this..

    • Purica says:

      Hello Gordana,

      Thanks for your email. As per your menstrual cycle coming back, this can occur during perimenopause years and is considered normal. As per blood pressure elevation, what is your blood pressure at now?

    • Greta says:

      I am a nurse who works in gynecology. I think you should talk to your family Dr. and perhaps have a referral to a gynecologist. A women is considered menopausal when she has not had a period for one year. sometimes there are still a few eggs left in the ovary around this time, and you might have another period, or two before your periods stop for good. In your case it might be that you havent quite transitioned into menopause. Howeve,r bleeding after menopause really needs to be investigated; It sometimes can be an early sign of uteriine cancer; Your dr. can order a pelvic ultrasound to check the lining of your uterus, but also you may need to have an endometriale biopsy (a very small amount of tissue from the lining of the uterus is taken with a very small flexible catheter which goes through the cervix, and this is done at the gynecologists office. I see it done very commonly in the clinic where I work-most of the time every thing is normal, but we have had cases of women having this kind of cancer. Catching this early is important, as spread can be prevented. Please go talk to your Dr. about your bleeding.
