Women dealing with menopausal symptoms are challenged to safely cope with night sweats, hot flashes, moodiness, and depression.
There are plenty of studies in medical journals that show certain plant-based extracts can support healthy estrogen metabolism and reduce menopausal discomforts, during menopause and beyond.1-8
Life Extension’s Natural Estrogen is a carefully crafted formula of patented hops extract with standardized lignans and other goodies that have been shown to support menopause symptoms.
The compounds in Natural Estrogen include:
