A 21 Day Period Changed Everything...

How 3 weeks of bleeding and anxiety led to the creation of a company designed to revolutionize midlife for women everywhere.

And led me to discover the reasons behind menopause symptoms and what you can do about them.

Hi. I’m Vanessa Ford.

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re confused about or just downright OVER menopause and its symptoms. Am I right?

I was there myself about three years ago.

I had a period that lasted for 21 - yes, TWENTY ONE - days.  It had me confused and truly anxious about my health. Did I have cancer? Was I dying?

I was not dying. Turns out I was in perimenopause.

Perimenopause was turning my life upside down.

Perimenopause was causing my three week period.

It was also causing awful, drenching night sweats...

and irrational mood swings that made me irritable and cranky, and often resulted in harsh words and hurt feelings.

I wasn’t sleeping well...

if I could get to sleep at all.

I was depressed and unhappy.

And my weight became an even bigger battle, with fat clinging to my belly in a way it had never done before.

I felt like my body had revolted on me just when I was starting to make real strides in my career, when I had finally figured out how to manage a healthy weight, and when my husband and I were ready to travel and enjoy life as empty-nesters.

Perimenopause threatened to destroy everything.

I was devastated.

My body was revolting.

I battled every day to control the things I ate, the things I said, the way I felt, to fall asleep.

I was exhausted, frustrated, and I needed answers.

But answers about women’s health in mid-life, and especially around menopause, is SORELY lacking. (More on that later!) 

I couldn’t find the answers I needed, so I decided to do something about it.

The solutions I found were so exciting to me that I created a company so that every woman could have them!

It’s been three years since that awful period prompted me into action, and I am happy to say that I feel like me, again!

    • I sleep better.
    • My periods have evened out, and my cramps are even less severe than before.
    • My night sweats are GONE, and I have never - not once - had a hot flash.
    • And my weight is manageable again!

That’s why I want to write this to you.

If you’re in your menopause transition, I bet you feel a lot of the same things I felt, and more:

    • Hot Flashes
    • Anxiety
    • Weight Gain
    • Brain Fog
    • Mood Swings and Irritability
    • Unpredictable, Irregular Periods
    • Insomnia

Like me, you might be considering hormone replacement therapy, or other treatments with potential life-threatening side effects.

The good news is, a lot of what is happening in menopause can be helped by natural ingredients. When I tried what I’m about to share with you, I got myself back!

And the women who’ve tried it tell me they have:

    • Better Moods
    • More Energy
    • Fewer Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
    • Weight Loss
    • Improved Sleep
    • and so much more!

In fact, here’s just a sample of the hundreds of positive reviews our products have:

Probiotics turned out to be THE life-saver for me.

Maybe you’ve tried probiotics before. And if you have tried them and they didn’t do anything for your menopause symptoms, guess what:

There’s nothing wrong with you. 

Turns out, women in menopause need the right probiotics! But no one is talking about probiotics that specifically impact menopause. 

The truth is that because menopause is so under-studied, probiotics for menopause isn’t top of mind for most companies. 

And there’s a simple reason why.

Women in mid-life are considered “too variable” to study!

But if you’re persistent like me, you don’t take that as an acceptable answer.

Menopause changes EVERYTHING. And we deserve BETTER.

Luckily, you’re here now and I’m going to show you EXACTLY what I learned to get to feeling like ME again.

The comment on Facebook that made me cry - and then take action.

In my search to find answers, I started lurking on menopause support groups.

I was still trying to determine what was going on with me. My doctor had told me I was in perimenopause.

But she also told me that the experience could vary greatly from woman to woman. 

And my mom had been put into menopause via a hysterectomy in her thirties, so she didn’t have a “normal” experience - or at least that’s what I thought.

So I was lurking on support groups, trying to find anyone who was having the same experience as me. 

And I kept reading heart-breaking comments from women.

But the one that really got me (I’ll paraphrase to protect privacy) was:

“My husband is divorcing me, because he says he doesn’t know who I am anymore, and I can’t blame him. I don’t even know me anymore. My life feels like it's over.”

I knew how that woman felt. I didn’t know me anymore, either. 

And while I wasn’t on the road to divorce, it felt like I needed to take control, or that could easily be me.

As it turned out, my husband had a friend who had some insight: Dr. John Konhilas, a researcher at the University of Arizona.

Dr. Konhilas had been studying women’s health and menopause for years, and he told me some things that shocked me. 

Did you know women have more heart attacks than men do? But men get all the heart-attack health warnings!

Did you know that when a researcher proposes a study on menopause, they’re REQUIRED to include men if they want to get funding? 

Did you know that women could recycle and reuse their own estrogen? It's called “estrogen deconjugation” and there are certain probiotics that can help a woman’s body with that process.

I started taking a bunch of different probiotics, vitamins and herbal supplements, to see if I felt any better.

I decided to use myself as a test subject.

Based on what I knew about probiotics from Dr. Konhilas, and my research about herbal supplements that might help menopausal symptoms, I decided to test what I’d learned on myself.

Now, this was not an easy process. I had to find the right products online.

I had to vet them to be sure they were safe and ethical. I didn't want MSG or other ingredients with negative impacts in my supplements.  

Then I had to wait for them all to be delivered to me, and split them out into pill organizers so I had some idea of what to take and when.

It was all very time-consuming, and I spent  A LOT of money, but I was determined to use myself as a test case.

The most amazing thing happened!

    • After about a week, I definitely had more energy.
    • After about 2 weeks, I felt happier and less stressed.
    • And about 60 days in, my sugar cravings - which I have had my whole life - stopped!

I felt so much better!

It was wonderful.

    • I wasn’t irrationally angry anymore.
    • I was sleeping 6 to 8 hours a night.
    • I wasn’t waking up drenched in sweat.
    • And I knew I needed to help other women.

    I talked to my friend, Danielle Jacobs, who is a certified nutritionist and a seasoned CFO, about starting a company to help women menopause.

    Danielle is one of those women who when you meet her, you just NEED to be friends with.

    She is empathetic, and warm, and incredibly supportive.

    She is also not afraid to tackle big projects, and her head for numbers is unmatched. 

    Danielle could see the potential we had to change everything about menopause.

    We knew we had a problem we wanted to solve.

    We knew we had a viable way to solve it.

    And we knew our husbands (long-time business partners who run a leading business development agency) would bring a robust team to help bring our vision to life. 

    Because when Danielle and I tackle a problem, we don’t just scratch the surface.

    We go ALL IN.

    We set out to create an entire ecosystem for women in menopause.

    We’re changing everything.

    The next few months went by like a blur...

    We put our own money into research and development, formulating products that are:

      • 100% natural
      • Dairy-free
      • Estrogen-free
      • Gluten-free
      • MSG-free
      • Soy-free
      • and based on the very best research we could find.

    We sourced the ingredients from the reputable manufacturers, and found FDA Certified Labs to manufacture them for us.

    We also started building an app, MenoLife, where women could get the answers and support they needed.

    In February of 2020, we put our first products up for sale.

    And sold out that same month. And we’ve sold out every month since.

    Our customers started reporting hot flashes decreasing or stopping altogether within days of starting their supplements.

    In about 60 days, we had our first reports of weight loss.

    And women kept telling us, over and over again, the ONE thing I was most excited to hear:

    "Thank you for giving me my life back."

    The reason we started this company was to do exactly that!

    It was so exciting to hear that women were seeing life-changing results.

    So what makes our supplements different?

    First, Danielle and I don't make anything we won’t take ourselves. 

    And since we are both pretty big into health and nutrition, we have very high standards.

    We use only the very best, 100% natural ingredients, sourced from the most reputable, high quality suppliers.

    Our products are only manufactured in FDA Registered Facilities, and only if the manufacturer meets GMP Standards for quality control and production.

    But most importantly, our products are formulated using peer-reviewed, credible, scientific research that shows positive impacts on women’s menopausal symptoms.

    We’ve done the work so you don’t have to...

    We identified the many symptoms women have during menopause.

    We researched all of the probiotics, vitamins, minerals and herbs that can impact those symptoms.

    We know what ingredients can have the most impact on each symptom.

    We sourced ALL of those ingredients to be safe, ethically produced and manufactured to the highest standards.

    Unlike my “test case” phase, you don’t have to research the hundreds of options out there, pay hundreds of dollars a month to buy dozens of pills, sort them all, and try to remember what to take and when.

    You can take 2 pills for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day, and know that your supplement is backed by research.

    We believe in our products so much, we guarantee them.

    If you buy a 30 Day supply, you get a 45 Day guarantee. Take it for the full 30 days and if you don’t see an improvement, we’ll refund you 100%. 

    If you buy a 60 days supply, you get a 75 Day guarantee. Take the product for 60 days and if you don’t see an improvement, we’ll refund you 100%.

    If you buy a 90 days supply, you get a 105 day money back guarantee. Take the product for 90 days and if you don’t see improvements, we’ll refund you 100%. 

    Why TWO WEEKs after the end of your supply? Because most women find that they feel “normal” after their 60 days.

    Remember normal? It was pretty amazing wasn’t it.

    We add those two weeks to the guarantee, because we want you to be able to see what you feel like when you stop taking the product.

    So many women tell us their hot flashes come right back when they stop taking our probiotics. This is because the probiotic gives you the right tools to keep your body in balance.

    If you take the tools away, the symptoms come right back.

    The Science of Probiotics

    Probiotics are these tiny little organisms that live in your gut.

    And they have a HUGE impact on everything our bodies do.

    They help send signals to your brain about all kinds of things, including:

      • When to stop eating
      • What to eat (and what NOT to eat)

    And remember that thing Dr. Konhilas told me about - estrogen deconjugation? Turns out, they can help with that, too!

    These little organisms can help you reuse your body’s own estrogen, instead of passing it out in your waste.

    Many menopause symptoms are caused by hormone fluctuations as your body produces less estrogen.

    So reusing what you already have can help even out those fluctuations.

    The result? Fewer, less severe symptoms!

    Gut health is a major part of your overall mental and physical health. Your gut impacts your brain, heart, immune system, weight, and even sex drive.  

    It can impact everything.  

    The right friendly bacteria make a world of difference. So we found the right ones, the very bacteria that were valuable enough to be patented, and we put them in two small capsules for you.  

    If you start taking these capsules today, I know you will love how you feel in just 60 days.  

    Don’t wait until you can’t remember what normal was like. 

    Don’t wait until your life, your health and your relationships start to suffer. 

    Don’t wait for a 21 day period. 

    Act today.  Make your “change” a change for the better.

    We built MenoFit for women just like you. Here's what they have to say:
