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
Amberen's proprietary blend supports and rejuvenates hypothalamus function, which mends communication with hormone-producing organs, such as the ovaries. As a result, the severity of menopause symptoms decreases.
Take 2 tablets per day, one orange and one white (after breakfast). Avoid caffeinated drinks when taking Amberen. For best results, the recommended duration is for at least 90 days. For guidance, dosage adjustments, or menopause consultations, NurseAid is available via email or phone.
Amberen Side Effects
On the company website, they claim there are no side effects of taking Amberen. However, customer reviews on Amazon mention a variety, including mood swings; allergic reactions and headaches (mainly from MSG); weight gain; stomach aches; and more. Side effects seem to subside after discontinuing use.
Where to Buy Amberen
Amberen can be purchased via its official website: http://amberen.com/. It can also be bought on Amazon and in some pharmacy chain stores, such as CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens.
