Searching The Tradition, Discovering The New
Menopause mean the period when menses stop permanently, and it accounts for 30% of a woman’s life. In this period, the ovary loses its functions, causing mental symptoms such as anxiety, depression, isolation, and loneliness, and physical symptoms such as flushing, heart acceleration, osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer, urogenital diseases. These symptoms need to be actively improved as they are factors degrade the quality of women in menopause’s lives.
As menopausal symptoms are results of decrease in sex hormone in the body, the most effective treatment if hormone replacement therapy, but there has been argument about continuing such a treatment for a long time, so an alternative is in need.
NEUMED selects materials whose safety has been guaranteed empirically to raise the quality of women’s life during menopausal period, so that we can develop materials that can alleviate various menopausal symptoms including mental symptoms, flushing, and osteoporosis.
NEUMED selects materials and sets norms based on iMED platform which considers effects of Korean Medicine prescriptions and various oriental materials and develops medicine based on traditional empirical experiences. After checking not only effects on alleviation of menopausal symptoms but also the differences in effects according to the mixing ratio of compound materials from animal models whose menopause were induced, we found the most effective mixing ratio of compound materials. We have selected safe and effective materials to alleviate menopausal symptoms and now are carrying out human study health functional food.
