My Conclusions:

As a relatively new company (founded in 2010), DrFormulas Menopause Support™ seems to be a practical option for women searching for relief throughout the menopausal transition. One thing that I especially enjoy seeing with companies is a money-back guarantee. To me, this demonstrates that they are confident in their product's effectiveness. This particular dietary supplement is backed with a 60-day money-back guarantee as long as the supplements are purchased directly through the company or through an authorized distributor. They have a nice explanation on Amazon concerning how the ingredients work in the body (a step many others forget). However, I am always cautious when it comes to introducing strong phytoestrogens - such as black cohosh and soy - into the body. Also, I was not able find further information regarding the reasoning behind three weeks on, one week off dosages. It seems quite curious to me.

My Tips for Improvement:

How DrFormulas Menopause Support™ Works

There are several ingredients within this dietary supplement that help combat menopausal symptoms together. For example, soy isoflavones act as weak estrogens in the body, helping to reduce the severity and frequency of hot flashes and night sweats as well as balance mood and improve sleeping patterns. Dong quai also helps support estrogen balance during menopause, and ultimately helps regulate the nervous system to reduce anxiety. Other nutrients in the proprietary blend work together to counteract other symptoms, too.

Directions

Take two capsules daily with food for three weeks. Then, follow with a subsequent week break. Do not exceed more than the recommended dosage of two capsules per day. Those with a medical condition or history of cancer should consult with a physician before use. DrFormulas Menopause Support™ is also not recommended for those who are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant. Keep out of reach of children.

Side Effects of DrFormulas Menopause Support™

DrFormulas' site does not mention any side effects from taking this supplement. However, users on Amazon mention nausea, cramps, allergic reactions, headaches, diarrhea, and other side effects. Also, some studies suggest that black cohosh could increase the risk of contracting uterine cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers.
