Faced with numerous menopausal treatments, it is difficult to make the right decision. Do you take traditional hormone replacement therapy, or look into a natural alternative? Estroven is a natural health supplement that claims to be a safe option for women dealing with difficult menopausal symptoms. What is Estroven and how can it help you?
Please note that the information presented in this article is for general informational purposes only. Readers should consider this a starting point for conducting personal research and then talk to a healthcare professional before taking Estroven.
Estroven is a relatively new formulation, but is considered a safe product for most women because it is made of natural ingredients. Full evaluations of Estroven have yet to be conclusive; the Estroven Website indicates FDA testing has been completed while other sites such as drugs.com refute this claim.
What is Estroven?
Estroven is a dietary health supplement containing several ingredients that are known to help cope with perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms including irritability, night sweats, hot flashes, and insomnia. Estroven can treat a variety of symptoms due to the individual components contained within each tablet.
Estroven contains phytoestrogens which are found in plants. Phytoestrogens or plant-derived estrogens behave very much in the same ways as the estrogens that are in the human body. Because of this mimicking effect, phytoestrogens are prescribed to help alleviate menopausal symptoms just as regular estrogens are.
*Soy and Japanese Arrowroot isoflavones which are phytoestrogens
*Black cohosh, an herbal phytoestrogen that has been shown to reduce the effects and frequencies of hot flashes
*Calcium to help build bone strength
*Boron, a trace element mineral extracted from the ground and is used to help the body absorb calcium
*Vitamin E promotes healthy skin and overall internal health
*Vitamins E, B 12, B 6, and Folic Acid which are all important in improving overall health and promote a healthy cardiovascular system
*Vitamins B 1, B 2, and B 3 which increase the body’s energy by burning carbohydrates more efficiently and help maintain hormonal balance
*Selenium the calming herb is used to induce a better night’s sleep and reduce stress levels without becoming habit-forming
*Iodine works to improve thyroid health
Estroven does not contain any artificial colors, flavours, preservatives, wheat, gluten, or lactose.
Estroven is taken once a day with food, ideally with the evening meal.
Who should not take Estroven?
Do not take Estroven if you are pregnant or may become pregnant or if you are breastfeeding. While there are no apparent side effects associated with Estroven, you should talk to your doctor and discuss any medications you are currently taking.
Estroven, like so many other natural menopause remedies, is a preferable option for women who prefer natural alternatives. Once you and your doctor determine that Estroven is right for you, you can possibly look forward to better days and a better night’s sleep during perimenopause and menopause.
