ask: Amberen

I found a website about Amberen and this all natural product was highly recommended by several people; most of them RN's. Is this product safe to take? Have you ever heard of the product? is it just for women who are in menopause or can someone my age (41) experiencing very minor symptons (weight gain and breast tenderness) take this product?

I have been taking Amberen for 3 years and can't live with out it. It stabilized my moods, which are quit bad, hot-flashes are gone and I can sleep better. What else is there to say about it, it may work for some and not others just as any you put into your body. I don't care what is in it, I am not a raging psycho and trust me I watched my mom go through menopause, got out of the house at 16. Does no hurt to try.

Thanks for your input, Anon! 

You're right - what works for one may not work for others. 

I'm glad you found something that has made you feel much better!

I used Amberen for 2 months and HATED it. After the first month I was sending it back and called them to find out about shipping. They talked me into taking it longer. I didn't have hot flashes before and was worried about weight gain so that is what I used it for. It put me into total menopause with hotflashes every 30 minutes and I gained weight while doing the Insanity workout. I stopped taking that crap about 1.5 weeks ago and am feeling better and lighter. I am waiting for a class action law suit or maybe creating one and have a month of Amberen on Craigslist currently. Wish me luck!

I wouldn't go so far as getting into a lawsuit. I tried it, it didn't benefit me, lesson learned. I am having far greater results from Maca root powder. 2.2 lbs for $25.00. I'm taking a tsp a day, that is 1/2 tsp in morning with breakfast and 1/2 tsp at lunch. This stuff is giving me the results I had hoped that Amberin would and do you know how may teaspoons are in 2.2lbs? Well over 200. That's extremely cost effective. I found it at 4allvitamins.com. Maca powder works with the endrocine system to balance it. Maca is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids. Maca root is rich in B-vitamins, which are the energy vitamins, and maca is a vegetarian source of B-12. To boot, maca has high levels of bioavailable calcium and magnesium and is great for remineralization. Maca root has been shown to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS, menopause, and hot flashes. Maca's also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men. It's sometimes referred to as "nature's Viagra."
You would have to try it to believe it, but at least you won't go broke on it.

Oh, what I don't like are the commercials. They keep touting this as a weight loss solution when losing weight taking Amberen has not been proven and more times than not, does not help in that area. So, why set themselves up for bad reviews by focusing on weight loss in their commercials instead of ridding ones self of menopause symptoms?

Just got my boxes of Amberen today. Going to give it a try. Am Hypothyroid and taking 2grain Armour thyroid which helped a lot with fatigue and brain fog. Did natural hormone cream a few years ago for a little over a year with so/so results. Am 53, been in full menopause since I was 49. Hot flashes aren't horrible, just annoying. Will see how this does. Am commited for the 90 days unless I experience adverse affects. Since I work at a medical clinic, being under supervision is no problem. LOL. The box says just to take once or twice a day with food. Will it matter if it's morning or evening?
