Having helped thousands of women in her clinic, our co-founder and registered nutritional therapist, Alice Mackintosh has witnessed the power that good nutrition can have on helping women who are going through menopause and peri menopause.
“Menopause comes at a time in life when we have developed much wisdom and are enjoying our strongest sense of self, yet this transition can often destabilise us overwhelmingly. In my clinic I speak to women suffering with a huge array of debilitating symptoms that impact on skin, mood, energy, libido, sleep and general wellbeing. I wanted to create a complete, highly nourishing formula that combines the very best standard of herbs, botanicals, minerals, antioxidants and female focussed probiotics that have been shown to help support women in this phase of their life.”
How Does Menopause Formula Work?
Like the rest our award-winning range, Menopause Formula contains 48 exceptionally nourishing ingredients, designed to bring balance to the whole body during this transition. This is really important because women often experience symptoms throughout their body - mood, energy, hair, skin, intimate health, libido, digestion, and sleep cycles.
These are rarely addressed with other products, but we have ensured that Menopause Formula combines the very best ingredients together to work in synergy, helping to bring more balance to the entire body and enhancing the way we feel - mentally and physically.

Alice expands further on some of the science behind our ingredients - “Sage extract has been specifically known to help with hot flushes, with a Swiss study finding that menopausal women taking sage extract experienced fewer and less extreme hot flushes over 8 weeks (Bommer et al, 2011) and another double-blind placebo-controlled trial (Gopal et al, 2021) found that showed that Ashwagandha can help with hot flushes."
What about Menopause Oil Edition?
This liquid omega oil supplement contains six nutrient-rich organic oils which have each been carefully selected for their anti-inflammatory properties to help tackle dryness both internally and externally as well as levelling out disrupted hormones. The star of the show is cold-pressed sea buckthorn oil which is renowned for its moisture-boosting abilities. It helps to soothe and hydrate the entire body as well as helping with vaginal dryness and dry eyes. We’ve carefully balanced this with plant-based omegas 3 and 6 to ensure optimum skin, hair and joint health as well as boosting brain function and general mood.
"Menopause Oil Edition is the perfect accompaniment to Menopause Formula and together these products contain 54 premium, bio-available nutrients and omegas to boost the female body at a time when it’s most in need of balance." explains Alice. You can reap the rewards of both AND save 20% with our Total Menopause bundle if you buy on our flexible monthly subscription, for maximum support.
How do these products compare to other menopause supplements?
One of the reasons we started Equi London is because we knew how overwhelming the supplement industry can be. Unlike other menopause supplements available (which typically use one or two ingredients to target a specific concern), ours has been expertly formulated to target the full expanse of symptoms. Expect to feel much more in sync with yourself as we help you to balance your internal systems. “What also sets us apart is how thorough our formulation process is,” says Alice. “We spend a long time looking at ingredients individually and then how they work together to ensure complete synergy.
“Menopause is a natural process every woman experiences, often at a time in life when she is feeling her most confident, most accomplished and most in control of the juggle of busy life. Yet the imbalances that the body goes through during this time can often derail women completely with 46% considering quitting their jobs and many others losing their confidence to the point where they stop driving and withdraw from society.”
We knew we needed a range of all-natural, effective menopause supplements that could help ease the multitude of symptoms and allow women to feel their best, and Menopause Formula and Menopause Oil Edition are our answer.
