If middle age means we've arrived then why aren't we celebrating?

Because it feels like our bodies are conspiring against us. Our hormones have gone rogue and decided to play a game of "let's see how much we can make our human suffer." 

First, the hot flashes, because nothing says 'I'm a powerful, confident woman' like spontaneously combusting in a meeting. Sleeping has become an epic battle of wills between us and our raging body temperatures. And we all know the joys of walking into a room and then staring blankly at the walls, trying to remember what we came in for. Our libido is permanently OOO.

Anxiety and depression have moved in and are now redecorating our brains. We're puffier in some places and dryer, everywhere. And there are the moods, which go from zero to sixty in a matter of seconds. One moment we're chuckling over a witty remark, and the next we're blubbering over an episode of Love Island. It's a veritable shit show. And we haven't even begun to discuss the hair, skin and nail changes that come along with the profound hormonal shifts of midlife.

This is where Micropause comes in the picture.

It’s time to ditch the myth that midlife means we’re invisible, irrelevant, and no longer cool. We’ve never been cooler.

But, unfortunately, we’re also hotter and a million other things we were totally unprepared for because no one talks about it.

We’re done with spiraling in shame and suffering alone with our symptoms. Ah, the joy of sweating profusely during a pitch meeting and having to explain to your colleagues that it's not nerves, it's just a biological response to the overwhelming mediocrity of the conference room decor. Been there!

Micropause™ is here to relieve your midlife mayhem, as you move through perimenopause, with natural holistic relief. And while we’re at it, reframe and reclaim this amazing time of life, together. Because we know our best days are ahead. Especially now that we feel like ourselves again.

A note from our founder

I am thrilled to introduce you to Micropause, a brand born out of my own personal journey and a a profound passion for supporting women on their path to holistic wellness.

With over three decades of experience in the health and wellness industry, I've had the privilege of being at the forefront of cutting-edge wellness trends. I'm a fitness trainer, Editor-in-Chief of Groomed LA, and was Managing Editor of The Chalkboard Mag. Throughout my career, I've explored countless supplements, powders, and potions in search of optimal health and vitality.

My journey with Micropause began during a challenging time in my life, as I navigated the often overwhelming and often demoralizing symptoms of midlife. Little did I know, I was entering perimenopause. A word I had only vaguely heard of. I quickly grew frustrated by the limited natural relief options available. And the products I did find, did not speak to me at all. I could not align with any of the brands on the market.

Determined to find a solution, that was both efficacious and could speak to what I call 'modern midlife,' I delved into research on the midlife benefits of functional mushrooms, adaptogenic herbs, roots, and other natural ingredients that were part of my daily wellness routine.

What I discovered was truly transformative – these powerful superfoods could profoundly support overall well-being during this transition time.

I was on a mission.

Eager to share my discovery with others, off I went to design my own solution, one that was efficacious and could also speak to women like myself. Let's say: more disco, less Golden Girl.

I also knew that I wanted to offer a simple, delicious alternative to traditional supplements, which I have always found to be a hard pill to swallow. Seriously, who needs one more pill? And thus, Micropause gummies were born.

With Micropause, my mission is clear: to offer women a straightforward daily wellness ritual tailored to help you thrive in modern midlife. I believe this stage of life embodies empowerment, confidence, wisdom, and sexiness.

As a self-funded, female-founded small business, I am overflowing with gratitude for your support. I encourage you to join follow along on Instagram and join our newsletter; thoughtfully curated to expand and enhance your wellness journey.
