Donna & Renée's Story
For women, by women.
After years of searching for nontoxic, drug-free solutions to their own period and hormonal related problems, co-founders Donna Ledwidge and Renee O'Shaughnessy built Vitropics, where menstrual health is supported and celebrated.
90% of women dealing with at least one menstrual cycle-related symptom such as painful period cramps, mind numbing menstrual migraines, bloating, hormonal breakouts, fluctuating moods, low energy …every single month. 70% of people with PMS and 42% of people with cramps report that their symptoms affect their ability to do their job, which can mean smaller paychecks, more work stress, and a stained professional reputation. All on top of a gender wage gap.
An estimated 67% of menstruating women turn to over-the-counter painkillers, or Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). Although these drugs are well-researched, they come with a host of well-documented side effects, some of which are potentially severe.
‘Triumph Monthly Cycle Supplement provides a drug-free option for those struggling with periods symptoms such as PMS. Our team have mindfully researched the leading science for the most effective herbal and nutritional ingredients for period related problems to provide safe and healthy options for all menstruating women, so that drugs with side effects are not the only option!’ Donna Ledwidge, Co-Founder and CEO.
This period focused super supplement doesn't just Triumph over period symptoms, it also contains essential ingredients to support immunity, energy, cognitive function, heart health, hair, skin and nail support.
Triumph contains three different nutritional blends which have been formulated for the three main phases of the menstrual cycle; Menstrual, pre-ovulation and post ovulation phases. This triphasic approach is a first in the industry and is Triumph's secret sauce.
‘We have eliminated the confusion! Triumph Monthly Cycle Supplement contains all of the nutrients every woman needs daily for optimum health as she goes through her menstrual cycle years.’ Renee O’Shaughnessy, Co-Founder.
Vitropics are a female led, female focused health company that offers research-backed, naturally effective solutions for menstrual related symptoms. Vitropics are opening more authentic period conversations and strive to push boundaries of menstrual health innovation for all women.
Mind numbing Cramps, PMS and Hormonal Breakouts
Like so many women, I had been dealing with menstrual cycle issues such as PMS and hormonal acne since I was 14 years old.
Every month, I would end up on the bathroom floor in pain from the worst debilitating cramps.
It affected everything.
My energy levels were flat, my confidence was low and I lacked the motivation to do anything.
Looking back, it makes me feel so emotional to think of all of the unnecessary pain I went through for such a long time and not knowing how to fix it. I was so sick of relying on painkillers and caffeine to keep myself afloat.
I knew something had to change. I wanted something that could help me manage my symptoms naturally and I wanted to feel like myself again.
Hair Loss, Low Mood and Chronic Tiredness
It all began when I noticed my hair was starting to dramatically thin out.
Following a stressful period in my life-grief, burn-out and anxiety all started to take their toll on my body and I was starting to lose my hair at an alarming rate.
My hair was coming out in clumps, my mood was all over the place and I was just exhausted all of the time.
I was burning a hole in my bank account in the search for the right combination of supplements to help combat my symptoms. My cupboards were packed at the brim with every kind of vitamin, mineral and herbal remedy I could get my hands on. You name it, I bought it.
I knew that there had to be a better and more affordable solution.
Ending the cycle of confusing, generic supplements for women.
As two busy working mums, we didn’t have the time, energy, budget or patience to put up with an ineffective, expensive solution.
We needed one solution for our multiple symptoms.
And we needed something that could change and support our ever-changing bodies.
Frustrated with the lack of high-quality, targeted solutions on the market for women.
We set out to create our own.
We recognised that female nutrition shouldn’t remain static.
From puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and menopause, a woman’s body goes through so much change. So any supplement designed to support it should also change.
Our proprietary blend of female-focused formulations has been created with this in mind.
We take pride in every tablet, sachet and box.
We produce locally here in Ireland, at our own GMP manufacturing facility in Co. Mayo, where all products go through rigorous testing and quality control from production, right to your door.
Our ingredients matter because what you put inside your body matters.
Together with our team of experts in the fields of pharmaceutical quality, raw ingredients, nutrition, chemistry and formulation, we have sourced the highest quality bioavailable nutrients, in the form most absorbable by your body.
We’ve done the research for you.
And we've made it easier and more affordable for you to get the nutrients you need to feel your best every day.
