what content in Amberen gives people more energy?

I am worried about this because I am very sensitive and most anything that claims to "boost energy", even in natural and alternative products, makes me jittery. I have not yet started on Amberen.

Hi abbynormal,
Thanks for your question, and for finding EmpowHER. I like your user name...reminds me of a move I saw back in the day. :)
When considering any kind of medication, it is good to advocate for yourself. I tend to be super-sensitive to stimulants also, so I definitely can relate. Here are a couple articles about Amberen to help you form an opinion:
Amberen Benefits, and A Balanced Look at Amberen
Have you also expressed your concern with the prescribing doctor to see what other options may be right for you? Here are some articles that may give you some ideas about alternative treatments: Menopause Treatment Articles
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.

Ha! yes it is from that movie. My friends suggested I use the moniker; I am anything but normal (even before menopause).
Thanks for the articles. I do not find the answer to what ingredient provides increased energy. I do not see any stimulants in Amberen, but we all know that the body is a complex organism and is affected by many things (we eat, breathe, think, etc).
If anything, the Mag/Cal combo are known to relax and have been suggested at bedtime to help promote sleep. We shall see . . .

Yes, every woman's experience with menopause and related symptoms can be different. It may take trying a few different things to see what works for you.
Take care,
