Amberen is one of the most marketed drugs for menopausal relief. According to the company that produces and markets Amberen, Lunada Biomedical, it works on the premise that by restoring the body’s internal systems, one can treat menopausal symptoms. Amberen works by maintaining the hormonal balance in the body, which gets disrupted during menopause.
Natural menopausal supplements have become popular among women recently due to the side effects of Hormone replacement therapy. Amberen is one of those menopausal supplements that have become popular in a very short time as it promises a side effect free natural way to reduce the symptoms of menopause.
According to the Amberen website, the ingredients of the “proprietary blend” are NOT disclosed but the other ingredients listed include the following::
Apart from MSG, all other ingredients are completely harmless. MSG has been shown to trigger side effects such as headaches, sweating and more seriously heart palpitations and chest pain. Thus, if you are under heart medication or have hypertension, it is best to stay away from Amberen.
One thing to keep in mind is that Amberen is not a weight loss drug. The manufacturers of Amberen claim you can get “guaranteed relief” from the symptoms experience by women approaching or suffering from menopause. But the customer reviews of Amberen is mixed. Some of the customers have said that it has only helped reduce the symptoms and not completely eliminated them. With price on the higher side, Amberen is not for the budget conscious woman. There are several budget friendly menopausal supplements available in the market. Even though Amberen comes with a money-back guarantee, it is not a testament to its effectiveness and safety.
