The climacteric and the menopause are characterized by variations in the hormonal pattern that determine the onset of somatic and / or psychological symptoms. Among the most frequent symptoms are hot flashes, mood disorders, sleep and memory. In addition, menopause is characterized by significant changes in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, as well as a tendency to increase body weight and a decrease in sexual desire.
Among the main components of Almetax easy, we find:
The alpha-lipoic acid that is present physiologically within our body. It has the ability to act in both water-soluble and fatty environments and this very important property causes alpha-lipoic acid to have access to all cells in the human body. It is an antioxidant compound that plays an important role in the energy metabolism of cells. It is a cofactor for several enzymes that take part in the conversion of glucose and other energy sources.
Curcfen® Curcuma extract (Curcuma longa L.) rhizome e.s. titrated 35% total curcuminoids and fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) seed e.s. This particular combination increases its absorption after oral administration, optimizing the effects even at low dosage. Turmeric acts with a protective cellular effect thanks to its antioxidant action and helps to counter the disorders related to the menstrual cycle, even in the pre-menopausal phase.

L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which is therefore taken by diet. It is a precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone melatonin, to which are attributed respectively positive effects on mood and on the quality of sleep.
Zinc has a specific role for the functioning of many hormones, including sexual ones; contributes to normal glucose metabolism and enhances the function of the immune system. In the product it is present as bispheninated chelated zinc; the chelation applied to the zinc mineral favors its absorption.
Chromium picolinate is considered the best source of chromium. It is important for the maintenance of normal levels of glucose in the blood.
Vitamin C that supports the immunomodulatory action of zinc and exerts a strong antioxidant action that, in addition to contributing to the well-being of our immune system, protects cells from oxidative stress. Supporting our body for the proper functioning of the nervous system and psychological function, helps to alleviate the sense of tiredness and fatigue
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is the precursor of coenzyme A which plays an important role in the synthesis of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B6 contributes to the proper functioning of the nervous system, the immune system and the normal psychological function. It, especially for women, plays a role of particular importance in the regulation of hormonal activity.

Several studies have been carried out in anti-inflammatory effects supported by Curcumin, the main active ingredient of Turmeric. Among the many actions that take place, it seems that we can also take into account the female post-menopause period.
The typical symptoms of this period are, in fact, direct connected with inflammatory processes. This is my way of thinking. Therefore, during the menopause the risk of suffering from these joint diseases increases significantly. Furthermore, the alteration of glucose and energy metabolism (often present in a woman's phase) Curcumin and tetrahydrocurcumin (one of the main metabolites of curcumin itself) prevent the deterioration of the articular cartilage and are able to improve the levels of weight and reduction of fat mass estradiol). Improvement of the symptoms of matrix osteoproteinases (MMP) 3 and MMP13 as well as of TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta and IL-6 in joint cartilages.

Curcumin, however, is one of those molecules with poor bioavailability, both for the degree of insolubility that distinguishes it, both for the low absorption and for the rapid biotransformation that it undergoes within our body. For this reason, formulations have been developed to increase its bioavailability, such as the curcumin-galactomannoside (CGM) complex, which is also present in CurQfen and which make the curcuminoid directly available in the free form. A randomized double-blind crossover study published in the Journal of Functional Food (2016), highlighted, in fact, that free curcuminoids compared to those conjugated with glucuronic acid (glucuronides) pass more easily the cell membranes and, therefore, are more bioavailable and effectively pass the blood-brain barrier more effectively.
