Overall, I would say that Estrotone™ is a viable option for women who are looking for a more natural way to relieve menopausal symptoms. In comparison to other brands, Estrotone™ offers women a variety of herbs and organic ingredients within its blend. Granted some women will react better than others to the supplement, but that is a given with any supplement or medication. Aside from the strength of its formula, I would like to see a better explanation of how the supplement works for women. Needless to say, this seems to be a step that many companies are conveniently forgetting. Moreover, clinical studies proving the supplement's efficacy in real women would also be beneficial to see along with a money-back guarantee to ease any possible hesitation in buying. Overall, those looking for a more natural way to beat menopausal symptoms may choose to look no further.

My Tips for Improvement:
- Offer money-back guarantee
- Conduct clinical trials proving effectiveness
- Explain how ingredients work in body instead of offering generic statement

How Estrotone™ Works
On the site, New Chapter claims that the herbal extracts and antioxidants in Estrotone™ help women achieve hormonal balance and go through healthy aging. To elaborate on this a little, through personal research, I've 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.
Take one capsule daily with food. Consult with a doctor before use if taking contraceptives, planning surgery, have a pre-existing liver disorder, history of cancer, or pituitary disorders. Stop use immediately if you develop symptoms of liver problems, including dark urine, jaundice, or abdominal pain.
Side Effects of Estrotone™
New Chapter's website does not mention any side effects of taking Estrotone™. However, users on Amazon mention side effects of headaches, weight gain, bloating, swelling, insomnia, increased nervousness, and allergic reactions among other symptoms. Studies have also shown that long-term use of black cohosh might lead to liver damage.
Where to Buy Estrotone™
Estrotone™ can be purchased directly from the website (www.newchapter.com) or online through Amazon. The herbal supplement can also be found at retails such as the Vitamin Shoppe and Walmart.
