The Femular Difference

Femular contains a specific extract of the Actaea racemosa -Ze 450, which is the same extract used in clinical trials shown to relieve a range of menopausal symptoms. Femular has been shown to have a 50% reduction in menopausal symptom severity and a 60% reduction in hot flushes/night sweats.1^ Symptom improvement has been seen after 1 month and significant improvement can occur after 3 months with continual improvement for a further 6 months.1,2,3 

Femular has been the subject of clinical trials and ongoing safety reviews.  With over 65 million daily doses sold since 2005, it has demonstrated that it is well tolerated and has no known drug interactions. Femular also shows a dose-dependent effect so for those experiencing moderate to severe symptoms, extra strength Femular Forte may be suitable for you. Femular Forte contains the same Actaea racemosa extract as Femular only twice the amount in just 1 tablet.1,2 

Femular is a natural medicine manufactured in Switzerland according to high quality Good Manufacturing Practices, this helps ensure a consistently reliable medicine, the same medicine used in clinical trials.
