How long will it take for my menopause symptoms to improve?
You may notice improvements within a few weeks. But for some women, menopausal symptoms should begin to subside within 4-8 weeks. Symptoms are, of course, unique to the individual.
Can I have these products while pregnant or breastfeeding?
We don’t recommend SWIISH Peri + Meno Relief or Hair & Metabolism during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list. SLEEP Superfood Powder is safe to consume while pregnant and breastfeeding. However, as everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional first to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Is there any benefit to taking Peri + Meno Relief if you’re not in menopause (excluding pregnancy & breastfeeding)?
Yes — this formulation is rich in antioxidants and also supports a range of other areas of health including menstrual health/PMS symptoms, immune support, wound healing, sleep disturbances, nervousness, irritability, sluggish digestion, oral health and blood sugar regulation.
Will it help me if I’m in the middle of a hot flush?
The best approach is a consistent one — with daily use of Peri + Meno Relief you will notice a decrease in menopausal symptoms. It’s not like a headache tablet, it’s a supplement — consistent use yields best results.
Can you have Peri + Meno Relief if you’re also on HRT?
Black cohosh can interact with some medications, including hormone replacement therapy, and may cause side effects or reduce the effectiveness of the medication. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before taking black cohosh if you are on hormone replacement therapy or any other medications. Your healthcare provider can advise you on whether it is safe for you to take black cohosh while on hormone replacement therapy or if there are any potential risks or interactions to be aware of.
What does SLEEP Superfood Powder taste like?
It has a delicious mild chai taste.
When should I take these products?
You can take PERI + MENO RELIEF at any time of day. For maximum effectiveness, take SLEEP Superfood Powder approximately 20-30 minutes before bedtime. It’s also important to avoid all devices (phones, iPad etc) and TV. Research has shown that the blue light emitted from these devices causes the brain to stop producing melatonin (the hormone that regulates sleep patterns).
Can I have SLEEP in a liquid other than milk?
Yes, you can also have it with hot water. Some people love it, while others prefer the more creamy taste of having it in milk.
Will I wake up groggy?
No, SLEEP Superfood Powder does not contain any sedatives or pharmaceutical drugs. It’s an all-natural powder, effective because the ingredients naturally contain melatonin or help the body produce its own melatonin. This means that you are working with the body and therefore that terrible groggy feeling that you get with many pharmaceutical medications shouldn’t happen.
PERI + MENO RELIEF — Night Sweats
A night sweat is a hot flush that happens at night as a result of changing hormones. It is the sudden flushing of warmth in the upper body, often causing excessive sweating and they may disrupt your sleep. Jujube (Ziziphus jujuba var. spinosa) is traditionally used to prevent excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and spontaneous night sweating. Similarly, Sage (Salvia officinalis) is traditionally used to reduce excessive perspiration and sweats associated with menopause. Likewise, Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa root) is frequently used for the relief of menopausal complaints such as night sweats.

PERI + MENO RELIEF — Hot Flushes
A hot flush is the sudden feeling of warmth in the upper body and is usually most intense over the face, neck and chest, often causing excessive sweating. Sage (Salvia officinalis) is frequently used in herbal medicine to help reduce hot flushes and/or night sweats associated with menopause. Similarly, Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa root) is often used for the relief of menopausal complaints such as hot flushes and profuse sweating.

PERI + MENO RELIEF — Mental & Cognitive Health
One of the most common symptoms reported in menopause is a deficit in attention, processing speed and memory which often results in a lack of focus and forgetfulness. Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) has been shown to improve mental performance and support mental exhaustion, resulting in increased concentration along with improved attention and mental speed. Similarly, Zinc has been studied for its contribution to normal cognitive function and memory formation.

SLEEP Superfood Powder
SLEEP Superfood Powder is formulated using a blend of natural superfood ingredients that help improve the quality and quantity of sleep. Many factors can disrupt sleep including loud noises, blue light/devices, caffeine and even stress. These hinder the natural production of melatonin — your sleep hormone — meaning your ability to fall asleep, enter the deeper stages of rest, and stay asleep throughout the entire night may be compromised. The issue with taking synthetic melatonin supplements is that it overrides the body’s natural melatonin production, causing it to forget how to continue this important process. This is why melatonin support using natural superfoods is an effective long-term option.
SLEEP Superfood Powder — Melatonin Support
There are specific superfoods that not only contain natural forms of melatonin, but also help the body produce it. Tart Cherry is a prime example of this, hence why it’s the main ingredient in our SLEEP Powder. There is an amino acid known as tryptophan in Tart Cherry that is a precursor (meaning it’s involved in the production of) of melatonin (for sleep) and serotonin (your happiness hormone). Clinical evidence also suggests that a primary function of melatonin in Tart Cherries is also as an antioxidant, helping protect the cherry from oxidative stress. This works two–fold, as melatonin doubles as a potent antioxidant in the human body, assisting with anti–inflammation, skin health, reducing free radicals, and supporting the body against oxidative damage.

SLEEP Superfood Powder — Improved Sleep Quality & Quantity
In another major 2012 study on Tart Cherry and melatonin synthesis, it was found that supplementation increased circulating melatonin levels in the body, improved sleep time and quality, elevated total melatonin content, increased total sleep duration, reduced daytime napping, and improved sleep efficiency in total by 82.3%.
