How Estroven Maximum Strength plus Energy Works
Estroven's site isn't 100% clear on HOW their ingredients work to relieve menopausal symptoms. Nevertheless, the company does credit the reduction of hot flashes and night sweats to black cohosh and soy isoflavones. It also attributes relief from irritability, fatigue, and mood swings to the magnolia bark and green tea with yerba mate.
- Calcium - important mineral for bone health
- Black cohosh root extract - phytoestrogenic herb, famously used for hot flash relief
- Soy isoflavones - phytoestrogens that help alleviate psychological and physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance
- Green tea leaf extract - green tea renowned for its catechins, polyphenols that act as antioxidants to prevent free radical cell damage; helps boost energy
- Yerba mate leaf extract - used to manage fatigue; protective effect on bone mineral density in postmenopausal women
- Magnolia bark extract - anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and neuroprotective properties; traditionally used to lower anxiety and stress
