It is important to speak with a healthcare professional if you have specific questions about taking Femular or Femular Forte.

It is not fully understood how the Femular/Femular Forte Ze 450 extract of Actaea racemosa works, however evidence suggests that it may work on the neurotransmitter system. Several studies suggest that it may act on serotonin and opioid receptors which play a role in central nervous system processes that help govern body temperature (thermoregulation), and also feelings of stress, nervousness and mild anxiety.5-7

 

The activity of Actaea racemosa in relation to oestrogen has also been investigated and the evidence suggests Femular is likely to be non-oestrogenic.6,8 

The research in this area suggests that Actaea racemosa may work instead as a selective oestrogen receptor modulator (SERM) helping to modulate and mimic oestrogen and is not likely to have a direct oestrogenic effect. 6,8 

It is important to discuss this with your healthcare professional, including your anaesthetist and surgeon.
