My Conclusions:

With the company's money-back guarantee, Amberen can be considered a low-risk purchase with potential to relieve some major menopausal symptoms. Although the company's dedication to prove their product's effectiveness with clinical trials is impressive, I'm not sure how legitimate it is, seeing as Amberen was previously marketed specifically toward menopausal weight loss and was sued by the FTC in 2015-2016 for unsupported claims. Needless to say, it is nice to see many strong testimonials and customer reviews of Amberen as well as good product availability throughout a variety of sites, including Amazon.

My Tips for Improvement:

  • Amberen should extend their money-back guarantee to 90 days, the recommended length of time for best results. 
  • Amberen should offer their money-back guarantee to customers purchasing on Amazon, which is cheaper than purchasing via the official website.

How Amberen Works
