LFI Labs RESTORE for Women is looking similar to other herbal supplements I've reviewed that are available for women going through the menopausal transition. In general, although the product seems solid, there are a few aspects of the company - LFI Labs - that seem sketchy. For one, I'm not sure when LFI Labs was founded; not even a Better Business Bureau rating was to be found. Also, with a bit of investigative work, I found several complaints of “fake” Amazon reviews posted by men within the review section. Furthermore, on the website, LFI Labs offers a 60-day money-back guarantee; however, on Amazon, only a 30-day money-back guarantee is offered to customers. In general, a little bit of consistency between sites would be appreciated. My final opinion is to do your research on whatever product you choose to try for symptom relief. RESTORE for Women could be your answer, but then again, it could not.

My Tips for Improvement:
- Conduct clinical trials proving effectiveness
- List side effects on company website
- Be transparent with length of time for money-back guarantee

How LFI Labs RESTORE for Women Works
As with many of the other herbal supplements, there are a variety of ingredients within LFI Labs RESTORE for Women that act together to battle symptoms of peri- and postmenopause. According to their website, black cohosh, sage, and red clover are the principal ingredients in charge of alleviating PMS, painful menstruation, hot flashes, and night sweats while the licorice has been found to help regulate stress and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Moreover, red raspberry and dong quai are used to further support the reproductive system and provide hormone-regulating effects.
Take two capsules daily with food. According to contraindications on Amazon, if you are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant, consult with a trusted healthcare professional before using. Also, those with hormone-dependent cancers or other possible health concerns should be cleared before use as well. It is important to store this supplement in a cool, dry place.
Side Effects of LFI Labs RESTORE for Women
LFI Labs' site does not mention any side effects from taking this supplement. However, users on Amazon mention lower back pain, digestive problems, and headaches, among others. Moreover, as I've mentioned throughout a variety of other reviews, black cohosh has been linked to a higher risk of contracting uterine cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers.
