Metagenics' - the company that produces Estrovera – site and the official Estrovera website do not explicitly explain how the supplement works to combat menopausal symptoms. However, external research shows that the main ingredient, rhubarb root extract (ERr), contains phytoestrogens, which act similarly to endogenous estrogens in filling the hormonal void.
Microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid (vegetable), croscarmellose sodium, silica, and enteric coating (ethyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl-methylcellulose, medium-chain triglycerides, ammonium hydroxide, sodium alginate, hydroxypropylcelulose, oleic acid, and stearic acid).

There is no information presented on the company website pertaining to safety for long-term use. Regardless, this menopause supplement is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also contraindicated for those with known or suspected estrogen-dependent cancers. If taking any type of medication, speak with your doctor before using Estrovera.

The official Estrovera website does not list any side effects. Even so, the supplement is well tolerated by most of the women who take it. For those who did exhibit side effects, some mentioned include digestive upsets (gas, bloating); depression; swollen and tender breasts; constipation; dizziness; and more.
