Scientific Background

The use of oral contraceptives with high oestrogen concentration or the use of hormones association (oestrogen/progestin) during the central phase of the menstrual cycle showed a significant increase in oxidative stress levels, which can have detrimental effects on blood vessels and microcirculation. Such an effect has to be considered carefully, since the use of oral contraceptives is already associated with an increased risk to develop vein thrombosis, venous thromboembolism and stroke.

A significantly increase in oxidative stress levels is also observed during the perimenopause period (climacteric status), which is a menopausal transition period, when clinical features begin.

During this period of time there are many symptoms which have an impact on the women’s quality of life. There are several natural substances able to counteract OS harmful effects in women, but they have to be specifically and harmonically combined in order to be effective.

Clinical Studies

Thanks to its content in Lycopene from Solanum Lycopersicum and Astaxanthine from Haematococcus pluvialis it has beneficial effects in protecting cells from oxidative stress and relieving symptoms characterized by oxidative stress-related aspects in healthy women.
