How Estrotone Works

On the manufacturer's site, New Chapter claims that the herbal extracts and antioxidants in Estrotone help women achieve hormonal balance and go through healthy aging. Through our personal research, we discovered that two of its primary ingredients – black cohosh and chaste tree – are phytoestrogens that help increase estrogen levels in a woman's body. The rest of the ingredients act accordingly or serve other supportive functions.
