Estroven® Ingredients

Since 1997, Estroven® has been working to find safe, natural and noninvasive ways to help women relieve their menopause symptoms.* Let’s look at the active ingredients in our entire line to help find the right Estroven® option for you.

Black Cohosh

The root of the Black Cohosh herb was used traditionally by early Native Americans who shared its benefits with European colonists.1 In addition to its antioxidant properties, efficacy and safety profile supported by a great deal of research (particularly the North American variety2), Black Cohosh is said to cause effects similar to the female hormone estrogen, helping to reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes and night sweats.* Because of its notoriety for helping to address some of the most bothersome menopause symptoms, Black Cohosh is one of the primary naturally-sourced ingredients in every Estroven® supplement.*

Soy Isoflavones

They might have a funny name, but their effects are no joke. Soy Isoflavones, derived from Soybeans, are plant-based, biologically active molecules that have been shown to be effective in helping to reduce hot flashes and night sweats.3 They are the second primary ingredient included in every product in the Estroven® line for relief from the symptoms of menopause.*

Magnolia Bark

The calming properties of magnolia help safely improve mood and reduce menopausal-related anxiety and irritability.* Used for centuries traditionally in China, Magnolia officinalis,, or Magnolia Bark, contains the phytochemicals honokiol and magnolol, specifically shown to help manage stress.4 Magnolia Bark extract can be found in Estroven® Stress Plus Mood & Memory and Estroven® Maximum Strength + Energy.*

Melatonin

Restless nights? Our bodies naturally produce the hormone Melatonin, which helps control sleep and wake cycles, but factors like seasonal light exposure and the natural aging process can result in decreased Melatonin production.5 Fortunately, synthetic Melatonin can be taken as a supplement with the same beneficial effects. That’s why it’s an ingredient in Estroven® Sleep Cool™ & Calm.* By moderating phases of sleep and wakefulness, Melatonin can help you get the most out of your night’s rest, so you can get the most out of the day.*

Ginkgo Biloba

Occasional forgetfulness or confusion is a common symptom experienced by menopausal women. Ginkgo Biloba, one of the oldest living tree species, has been shown to improve circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of individual blood platelets.6 Studies have shown the herb fosters improved memory and thinking.6 But you don’t need to memorize all that—just remember that Estroven® Stress Plus Mood & Memory is a great source of naturally sourced Ginkgo Biloba to help maintain mental attention and focus.*

Synetrim® CQ

Native to West Africa, Southeast Asia and India, the Cissus Quadrangularis plant is a common ingredient traditionally used in many different cultures and has been used for a variety of purposes. A key component in the clinically studied, proprietary ingredient Synetrim® CQ, Cissus Quadrangularis extract is used in Estroven® Weight Management to help balance serotonin levels to support a healthy metabolism, which is important for managing weight.*
