September is Menopause Awareness Month. The Estroven suite of products have become the #1 natural menopause supplement in the United States.** Nearly a million women choose Estroven for relief of their perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms, more than any other brand.

Menopause has not been kind to me beauties. I had no idea what difficulties I was in for. My mother breezed through it so I wasn’t prepared for the hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, weight gain and fatigue. I’ve experienced all of these symptoms and still continue to suffer from some of them. In fact, I had my annual exam just a few weeks ago and was complaining to my doctor about my insomnia and night sweats. Even though I am on hormone replacement, I still have night sweats so badly I have to change my pj’s a few times each night. As if that’s not bad enough, I have terrible insomnia too. After voicing my complaints, my doctor suggested Estroven Nighttime. The very next day this box appeared on my doorstep–how’s that for serendipity?

Estroven Nighttime is heaven sent! I was using Lunesta on occasion to help me sleep, but it takes a good hour for me to fall asleep and then the entire next day I feel groggy and tired. I absolutely love Estroven Nighttime!! I take one caplet when I’m ready for bed and 20-30 minutes later I get sleepy and I drift off to sleep naturally and happily. I don’t wake up half way through the night or feel like I have a hangover the next day. I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go!

The new formula formula has been enhanced with clinically proven melatonin, a common ingredient found in many sleep aids and clinically proven soy isoflavones, among the most extensively studied alternatives to estrogen therapy.

  • Melatonin, clinically proven to help you fall asleep easier*
  • Soy isoflavones, clinically proven to help reduce hot flashes and night sweats*
  • Estroven Herbal Sleep & Relaxation Blend with chamomile, passion flower and valerian and hops

I cannot tell you how this has approved my life!! Plus as a HUGE added bonus, the first night I used it I had no night sweats–none, zero, zilch, nada! Not only can I sleep well, but no more getting up to change!! I hope I don’t sound too dramatic, but Estroven Nighttime really has changed my quality of life–it had done what bio-identicals and hormone replacement could not do.  I do need to warn you though, the valerian in these caplets make them smell awful. My ex-husband used to use a high dose of  valerian for sleep, I don’t remember if it worked for him, but it sure did stink up the medicine cabinet! Luckily they are caplets and the smell is not THAT pronounced, but it does rate a mention.

The two major dietary ingredients used by the Estroven brand are clinically proven soy isoflavones and/or Black Cohosh, since these address the most common menopausal symptoms: hot flashes and night sweats.

Estroven Weight Management contains:

  • Clinically proven Soy Isoflavones, plus Black cohosh to help reduce hot flashes and night sweats*
  • The proprietary ingredient Synetrim® CQ to balance serotonin and help safely manage weight*
  • An Estroven Herbal Weight Blend of naturally-sourced ingredients to support healthy weight management and contribute to a healthy lifestyle*

I’ve been using too; take one capsule each morning and one capsule in the evening with food. I’ve only been taking the capsules for a few weeks so I have nothing to report yet. Most women will notice benefits in 8 to 10 weeks of continuous daily use. But because Estroven contains many natural ingredients that work in harmony with your body, it will vary from woman to woman. I have noticed a slight curb in my appetite, but nothing substantial yet–will report back in a few weeks.

My co-worker has terrible hot flashes. She gets sometimes as many as five or six just during the work day. The poor girl gets beet red, breaks out in a sweat and is generally miserable until it passes. She even has a fan on her desk but it doesn’t provide much relief. Naturally, being the sweet, generous and empathic person I am, :)  I gave her Estroven Maximum Strength to try. She has been taking the capsules for about a week now and reports back that while not a miracle, she is down to maybe 2 hot flashes a day which is a significant decrease.  I think her mood is much better too :)  Just kidding!

I can’t wait to try the Energy and Mood and Memory varieties next!  I have had excellent results from the Estroven products I’ve tried, especially in addition to my hormone replacement pills.

Bottom Line: Estroven Nighttime has truly made a big improvement in my daily life, allowing me to get a good nights sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. I’m anxious to see how Estroven Weight Management can help with my weight too. If you are a woman experiencing menopause or perimenopuse, you NEED to try the Estroven suite of products, they really work!

  1. Thanks for the review. I have wanted to get a trusted opinion on this product.

  2. Please be aware if you are sensitive to estrogen…..that plant estrogen is just as bad a horse estrogen. No one told me this so I used it and also drank & ate soy. I am sensitive to estrogen and developed breast cancer. My friend is the same and ignored this fact. She drank soy milk every day and now both breasts were operated upon. Be careful. That is all I am saying.

    I’m just hitting the menopausal wall ( I think…it’s got to be a year since your last period, right? Not quite there, but I think it’s done. Fingers crossed…) Hot flashes are bad, but night sweats aren’t as bad as when I was peri-menopausal. I’ve been using something called “Flash-Fighter” that I got from Vitamin World. I was using Estr atone, and really liked it but it was VERY expensive and hard to find. I might try this, since they all seem to contain pretty much the same ingredients.
