Relief commonly occurs within the first month of use.
The main ingredient in the Femarelle® line is called DT56a, which originates from soybeans. DT56a is a proprietary standardized compound that works in the body in a selective manner, managing the symptoms that occur due to hormonal changes in the different stages of menopause, without affecting any sensitive tissues and without adding risk factors.
If you are in your 40s and starting to experience menstrual fluctuation, you may start to see and feel the appearance of different symptoms related to hormonal changes due to estrogen decline. The symptoms include a decrease of skin elasticity, sleep disturbances, mood swings and changes in your sexual drive. Femarelle® Rejuvenate was developed with you in mind. Femarelle® Rejuvenate will support you in dealing with the primary hormonal changes that you are experiencing.
If you are no longer menstruating and start to experience menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes and night sweats, Femarelle® Recharge is for you and will help you to deal with the symptoms associated with menopause swiftly. However, menopause is much more than hot flushes and night sweats. You may see that your sleep is affected as well as your sex drive, and some may even start to experience vaginal dryness and recurring vaginal and urinary tract infections. Femarelle® Recharge was shown in numerous studies and with more than 20 years of market experience that women typically feel relief of the bothersome symptoms within the first month of use, some even within the first week of use.
Women in their 60s and above who are over their menopause transition and are no longer suffering from hot flushes and are looking for the best possible solution to support their bone health and may suffer from vaginal discomfort and want to increase their energy levels, should take Femarelle® Unstoppable.
Femarelle® has been available since 2000 with more than 9.5 million months of use, and, to date, no significant adverse reactions have been reported. However, each of us can have a different reaction to anything we consume. If you experience side effects, we advise you to consult your physician.
Note that Femarelle® contains soy.
If you have any specific questions regarding the possible interaction with your medication or supplements, we advise you to consult your healthcare practitioner.
We have seen that, in some women, an increase of the dosage to three capsules per day, taking two when the relief is most needed, has been shown to be beneficial.
Therefore, if the symptoms are stronger during the day, two capsules should be taken in the morning and one in the evening for a week. If the symptoms are more difficult at night, the morning dose should remain at one capsule with the increased dosage taken in the evening.
There is no risk in taking a larger dose, and the dosage can be reduced back to two capsules a day once improvement in the symptoms is felt. Please note that it is crucial that Femarelle® be taken twice a day regardless of the dosage.
Femarelle® is not an estrogen or hormone. It is a natural food supplement made from a proprietary soy extract, flax and vitamins/minerals, depending on the particular product.
No, Femarelle® is a gluten-free product.
The capsule protects the active ingredient from the high acidity of the stomach, which may destroy it, so we recommend not opening the capsules.
However, if taking the powder alone relieves your symptoms, you may continue taking Femarelle® this way. Instead of putting it in water, though, we recommend that is be taken on a spoon with some yogurt that will ease the swallowing of the powder.
Two capsules per day have been found to be effective for most women; however, if you need to increase the dosage, you may do so according to the time of the day that you suffer most, without risk (see answer to CAN THE DOSAGE BE INCREASED?).
If a dose is missed, the capsule should be taken as soon as possible, and the regular schedule should then be resumed. There is no need to take a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
Femarelle® is a food supplement that can be taken safely for the long term to enhance women’s well-being in the post reproductive stage of their lives.
The longer you take Femarelle®, the longer it will support your daily life.
If you are in your 40s and start to see fluctuations in your monthly cycle, Femarelle® Rejuvenate is intended for you.
Femarelle® Recharge is intended for women who start to feel the symptoms of menopause, usually around their 50s.
Femarelle® Unstoppable is intended for women 60+, who are searching for a worthy solution to maintain and/or improve their bone and vaginal health.
The ages above take into consideration the general population; however, if you entered menopause at an earlier stage, due to a surgical procedure or medications, follow the symptoms that you want to take care of as your guidance.
Femarelle® is not an isoflavones extract. The manufacturing process does not isolate any single component from the soybean, which is done with isoflavone-based products, but uses a proprietary process that forms a unique and stable supplement that was proven, through numerous published studies, to bring relief of symptoms while supporting women from anti-aging to healthy aging.
