Vascafem is a herbal supplement developed specifically to address the symptoms and causes of some lifestyle-related disease specially affecting women.
Thank you very much for a product that really works. I am a 69 year old widow and have continuously been using your product since April 2000. I stick to the suggested dosage and never skip a day. I have to say that this product really does what it claims to do. My blood pressure, cholesterol and bone density was again tested this year and the results were outstanding. My hair and nails are beautiful. I walk 5 kilometres every day, play bowls and do trimgym twice weekly. I have boundless energy, and I have been very healthy for the last few years. I underwent a big back operation two years ago, and my recuperation was excellent without any complications. I am sure Vascafem played a role. I have no signs of arthritis and even my vision has improved. I have serious eye problems and I was very surprised when my optometrist told me that my eyes had improved. Due to thinner lenses I can now buy more attractive frames. Thanks a lot. I am recommending these tablets to everybody in my retirement village.
Graag wil ek met hierdie skrywe my dank uitspreek vir die inisiatief wat u geneem het on Vascafem beskikbaar te stel. Sedert ek Vascafem gebruik het my beendigtheid met 35% toegeneem wat natuurlik op my ouderdom van 60 jaar as uiters merkwaardig beskryf kan word. Ek het ook baie pyn in my knieë verduur en het baie moeilik beweeg. Ek kon net met die grootste inspanning in en uit die bad klim. Op 'n stadium het ek dit oorweeg om my huis te verkoop oor die baie trappe, want ek kon nie sonder erge pyn trappe klim nie. Vascafem het egter ook hierdie probleem opgelos, en ek is vol vreugde en loof en prys my Skepper daagliks vir so 'n unieke produk. Ek het reeds kennis geneem van u nuwe produk, Vascacydin, en glo dat dit ook soos Vascafem, 'n beter, gesonder lewe vir ons as gebruikers daarvan teweeg sal bring. Ek wil nooit sonder Vascafem wees nie.

Pack size: 100 Tablets

The following rundown of Vascafem’s ingredients illustrates how it can benefit your health:
Supplementing calcium is of crucial importance for women from the age of 30. Many women only consider supplementing calcium when they reach menopause, but it should be started much earlier. Women should not wait until Osteoporosis has been diagnosed before they start taking calcium. Prevention is better than cure.
The calcium in Vascafem is from both an organic (water soluble) and inorganic source and provides you with 500 milligrams of elemental calcium daily.
Kelp provides excellent nutrients from the sea, particularly iodine, which is vital for the thyroid gland to function properly. The thyroid gland is an important regulator of metabolism and weight.
Other nutrients in kelp include protein, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates, fibre, trace elements, sodium and potassium salts.
Kelp is also an important general and nutritive tonic herb, which can be taken as a supplement by patients with obesity, heart disease, respiratory disease, rheumatism, arthritis, high blood pressure, thyroid deficiency, constipation, gastrointestinal ailments and infectious disease. Research has shown that kelp has a positive effect on the symptoms of these conditions.
If you have an iodine allergy, you might get an allergic reaction from kelp.
Vitamin B6 has been associated with healthy bones in post-menopausal women. More than 50 chemical processes in the body depend on vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 levels can be low in depression and when birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy are used.
The Chinese herb Ginkgo biloba has been used for centuries by the Chinese to treat lung ailments, vascular diseases and as a memory booster for the aged.
Ginkgo biloba contains antioxidants, vitamin C and carotenoids known as ginkgolides. Ginkgo flavanoids dilate micro-capillaries, which increase blood circulation and oxygen levels in brain tissues and the extremities. Ginkgo is also a potent antioxidant keeping arterial walls flexible and decreasing the formation of plaque in the veins and arteries.
Ginkgo strengthens the cardiovascular system. It also scavenges on free radicals that can damage cells and accelerate aging(refer to our articles on free radicals and antioxidants).
Ginkgo may be useful to improve the memory of men and women, especially when used in conjunction with Hawthorn. In Germany and France, it is frequently prescribed to elderly patients.
Hawthorn berry works to increase cardiovascular health. It is an excellent heart tonic as it dilates peripheral blood vessels, coronary vessels and improves blood circulation.
The potential side-effects of Ginkgo, Hawthorn and kelp, are minimal. However, the following possible interactions and precautions should be considered:
Ginkgo can interfere with the seizure threshold in people with epilepsy.
Diabetics should be aware that Ginkgo may reduce their insulin requirements. Adjustments may be needed. Regular glucose level checks may be required initially. The benefits of improved vascular circulation for diabetics are enormous.
Ginkgo has an inhibitory effect on blood platelet aggregation which means that it effectively reduces the tendency of blood components to stick together. It the tendency of dangerous clots forming in the veins and arteries. The ability to inhibit blood clotting implies that Ginkgo may increase the effects of anticoagulant drugs such as Heparin, Warfarin and Aspirin.Regular testing of your prothrombin index is important when taking Warfarin to be able to make any needed adjustments to Warfarin therapy.
Patients with angina or rhythm disturbances should take note that Hawthorn may influence heart rhythm.
Persons on any other medication, especially diabetics and those on Warfarin, should start on an even lower dose of a half a tablet twice a day for five days. Then proceed to a higher dose of one twice a day as indicated on the container.
One tablet twice a day for five days, and then two tablets twice a day after meals.
