BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, October 10, 2005 - BioLogic Health Solutions Pty Ltd., an Australia-based company whose mission is to research, develop and promote a range of well-researched natural products that improve the quality of people's lives, has announced results of a 5-month Australian study published in the International Journal of Naturopathic Medicine which confirms that the company's U.S. branded ingredient, MenoLogic (TM) (available as BioGest (R) Menopause Relief cream in Australia), is effective in reducing symptoms associated with menopause. The randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study of 23 menopausal women found that MenoLogic cream decreased symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, muscle and joint aches, diminished physical strength and depleted energy levels associated with menopause.
"This study supports the efficacy of MenoLogic cream in minimizing the most common symptoms associated with menopause, as well as showing its safety," stated Debra Seipel, managing director, BioLogic Health Solutions. "Many women are now seeking out natural alternatives to hormone replacement therapy. In light of the recent reclassification of HRT drugs as carcinogenic by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, many more women will be looking for natural ways to reduce menopausal symptoms. MenoLogic cream can offer an effective alternative."
MenoLogic is a proprietary liquid extract ingredient that includes wild yam, rose geranium essential oil, sage essential oil and homeopathic wild yam and progesterone. The base cream is vegetable based and contains Vitamin E and flaxseed oil to enhance transdermal absorption. BioLogic Health Solutions has spent several years perfecting the MenoLogic cream formulation, which is available for licensing and co-branding opportunities in the United States.
BioLogic Health Solutions, founded in 1999, is an Australia-based company who launched several proprietary branded ingredients in the United States in early 2005. All products at BioLogic Health Solutions are developed based on holistic, natural therapy principles with the added security of scientific research. The company conducts ongoing research with institutions around the world, including the Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM) and the Brisbane-based Applied Science and Nutrition Research, to ensure the highest levels of efficacy for addressing very specific health concerns. Studies on BioLogic products are currently underway in the United States, Australia and Scotland.
