Menopause is a completely natural period in the life of every woman on earth. However, this period is usually associated unpleasant symptoms, including hot flashes and insomnia. Even though not each woman suffers from sleepless nights or any other symptoms, but those who do are promised to find relief in a new supplement called Remifemin. It boasts to be a natural way to relieve menopause symptoms. Its formula contains black cohosh root as its key ingredient. The product is claimed to offer women fast results and even is said to be clinically proven as a safe and effective product. Whether it is true we will have to find out further. One of the ways to do this is by taking a look at the manufacturer of the product.
The company manufacturing the product carries the same name. It is not a reputable or popular company in the USA. It does not seem to manufacture any other products, which is a bad sign. The official website is low-informative and does not contain the important information about the ingredients of the product and possible side effects. The site carries a purely commercial character. Remifemin is sold through the official website for about $20. It can also be found on some of the most popular retail stores. It is claimed to be an all-natural menopause product that is estrogen-free and is promised to be more effective than other common compounds like soy in solving the issues related to menopause. We have done our own research about the ingredients in the supplement and this is what we found out.
Remifemin's formula contains black cohosh extract from the root and rhizome, which is equivalent to 20 mg per serving. This ingredient is claimed to have been clinically proven to decease the symptoms of menopause by up to 70% within three months of use. It has also been shown to reduce insomnia after just eight weeks. According to the manufacturer's study, individuals who were given black cohosh extract confessed that they woke up feeling less groggy after using this product regularly. According to webmd.com, black cohosh is often used by women for the treatment of the menopause symptoms (hot flashes and others). The disadvantage of product is that the FDA has not reviewed it for effectiveness or safety. You are recommended to consult your doctor for more details. Other ingredients in the supplement are lactose (milk), magnesium stearate, potato starch, cellulose, and natural peppermint flavor. None of these components is known for its ability to reduce menopause symptoms. We are concerned with the fact that the manufacturer does not provide any dosage information of the ingredients used in the product. It means that these substances can be harmful for your health or not provide the promised health benefits.
The manufacturer recommends using Remifemin tablets by mouth as directed. You should take one tablet in the morning and one in the evening. In this way, you will take two tablets per day. Remember to follow all directions on the package and do not overdose the product, otherwise you risk experiencing side effects. By the way, the main ingredient in the supplement, black cohosh extract, may have negative impact on your health in some cases. We will discuss this further in this review. In any case, you are recommended to consult your doctor before starting to use this supplement. This herbal product should not be used for more than half a year. If your condition worsens, you should ask for medical attention immediately. It is high time to take a look at possible side effects associated with the use of this product, as well as at the user reviews on Remifemin available on third-party websites.
The manufacturer of Remifemin says absolutely nothing about possible side effects of this product; however, we have done a research about its main ingredient, black cohosh extract, and found out that it can lead to many adverse reactions. These may include headache, nausea, stomach upset, vomiting, vaginal spotting/bleeding, weight gain, and dizziness. Serious side effects include muscle pain and extreme weakness. If any of these effects worsen, contact your doctor as soon as possible. This product may rarely provoke serious liver disease. If you notice any symptoms of liver injury, such as loss of appetite, persistent nausea, unusual tiredness, pale stools, stomach/abdominal pain, dark urine, yellow eyes or skin, stop taking Remifemin and consult your doctor. The symptoms of a very serious allergic reaction are rare but they may include rash, severe dizziness, itching or swelling of the face, throat or tongue, trouble breathing. There is a number of possible drug interactions, which is why you are highly advised to consult your doctor before using this supplement.
There are quite many customer reviews about Remifemin on third-party websites. Most of the users are not pleased with this product saying that it hasn't shown any relief even after several months of using the supplement. One woman reports that she has been taking this supplement for almost three months in order to get rid of hot flashes but she hasn't got any relief from hot flushes. Other customers confessed that this supplement made them very light-headed and dizzy. For these reasons the women had to stop taking this supplement. Let us take a look at the real users' reviews available online.
"After using Remifemin for three days, I developed sores on my tongue and mouth. As soon as I stopped using the product they went away. I made a break for a week and tried the product again. I had exactly the same result. In addition, the product gave me unusual dreams. They also went away when I stopped using the product."
"Remifemin did not help me with menopause symptoms or heart palpitations. I still feel stressed because of sleepless nights and hot flashes. My mood is no better either. I am looking for a product that would set me free from hot flashes and improve my sleep quality. Do not waste your money on these useless pills."
"I give Remifemin only one star for a few reasons. First, it does not work as claimed. Second, it is too expensive. I do not recommend this supplement to anyone. It is better to look for other ways of relieving menopause symptoms."
One bottle of Remifemin contains 60 tablets, which is a one-month supply. The product can be bought directly from the manufacturer or from some retail stores. Amazon offers these menopause relief tablets at the price of $21.68.
Remifemin is associated with a great number of disadvantages. The major concern of mine is lack of positive effects. Some people even report that their condition has worsened after they started taking the supplement. There is risk of side effects and allergic reactions, since the manufacturer does not provide the whole ingredient list of the product. We are not aware of exact amounts of the ingredients in the formula either. The product is not endorsed by a satisfaction guarantee. The official Remifemin website does not provide user testimonials and does not offer free samples of this product. This dietary supplement requires more clinical studies to back up the claims made by the manufacturer of Remifemin. There are natural therapies for the treatment of menopausal symptoms available. Since the product has so many drawbacks, side effects, precautions, and interactions, I cannot recommend Remifemin to usage.
