Score: 3.3 out of 5.0
First and foremost, I noticed that the ingredients list is eerily similar - and by eerily similar, I mean exactly the same - to the product RESTORE for Women by LFI Labs. Who copied whom? I don't know, but UltaLife is also guilty of not possessing a Better Business Bureau rating and being accused of “fake” Amazon reviews posted by men. On another note, it would be nice to see for how long the money-back guarantee is offered. As always, consistency and transparency is appreciated. Aside from these negatives, the product does include a wide array of herbs shown to help relieve menopausal symptoms, and there seem to be no artificial colors found within the blend. For those who aren't concerned about details on product origins, Her Harmony could prove to be the long-sought-after answer for ultimate relief. Just do your homework beforehand to see if the ingredients and company feel right for you.

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
- Clearly state the length of time company has been in market
UltaLife Her Harmony Quick Fact Sheet

How UltaLife Her Harmony Works
UltaLife does not explain how the ingredients work to alleviate symptoms of hormonal imbalance. However, from my own research, I have found that strong phytoestrogens - like red clover, soy isoflavones, and black cohosh - are principally responsible for helping increase insufficient estrogen levels. Also, Chinese medicine practitioners traditionally prescribed dong quai for women's reproductive problems, like painful menstruation, and to improve blood circulation.
Take two capsules daily with food. Although no contraindications were mentioned, I have seen other companies with similar ingredients saying that if you are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant, consult with a doctor before use. Also, be careful if using when you have a hormone-dependent cancer, such as breast or uterine cancer. Store this supplement in a cool, dry place.
Side Effects of UltaLife Her Harmony
UltaLife does not mention any side effects from taking this supplement. However, users on Amazon mention side effects of insomnia, anxiety, increased hot flashes, and more. Moreover, as I've mentioned throughout a variety of other reviews, long-term use of black cohosh has been linked to a higher risk of contracting uterine cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers.
