Our AOR Fem-Adapt Review – The Bottom Line
We were encouraged by several aspects of Fem-Adapt. This supplement contains a formula of ingredients that might be helpful in lessening menopausal symptoms like hot flashes. It is non GMO, gluten free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The not so positive comments are as follows; there are many inactive filler ingredients in this supplement including hypromellose, sodium stearyl fumarate, tricalcium phosphate, maltodextrin, silicon dioxide and microcrystalline cellulose. The guarantee is short at 30 days and does not allow you to return opened bottles. Return shipping is your responsibility. When you purchase this supplement, shipping is extra and there are no discounts for new customers or bulk buyers. In terms of ingredients, Fem-Adapt only consists of one formula and is missing a key ingredient Protykin. There are many side effects and cautions that are of a concern to us. In terms of dosage, it is not clear if there is a preferred time of day that the capsules should be taken and whether it should be used with or without a meal, or if you can take both capsules in one sitting. Pricewise, this is not a well priced supplement considering it costs $39.96 for a one month supply of capsules. For all the above reasons, we suggest that you look elsewhere for a menopause supplement.
