"The menopause started kicking in when I was 42 or 43. Hot flushes, night sweats, being teary all the time – it just tired me out. I first heard about Femular® through a friend of mine. She said ‘try it, see what you think’. I’ve been taking it for 4 years now and I haven’t looked back."

 

 

What makes Femular different?

When it comes to natural medicines, consistency is important as there can be great variation in the ingredients used and the way they are produced.

Femular contains an exclusive extract of Actaea racemosa referred to as Ze 450. This has been produced in a highly consistent way; from careful sourcing and cultivation through to manufacturing. Femular has also been the subject of extensive clinical trials to demonstrate efficacy and tolerability. When taking Femular or Femular Forte, you can be confident that you are receiving a reliable natural medicine that lives up to its claims.

Research has shown significant symptom relief after 1 month and continued symptom improvement over 9 months.1,2,3 With over 65 million daily doses sold since 2005, Femular is well tolerated and has no known drug interactions.
