Integrative Therapeutics AM/PM Menopause Formula Review
The Manufacturer’s Claim
The following review is for a product known as AM/PM Menopause Formula. Manufactured by Integrative Therapeutics, this hormone-free medication takes the form of two tablets. Labeled AM and PM, the tablets are targeted to act on menopausal symptoms that often occur during the day and at night. This all-natural solution to menopause symptoms will, according to the manufacturer, support you all the way through your transition from the pre-menopausal to the post-menopausal stage. What did we learn about this product that will help you decide it it’s right for you? Read on to find out.
- Green Tea Extract (Camelia Sinensis) – 250 mg
- Black cohosh and rhizome extract – 20 mg
- Asian Ginseng – 100mg
The AM formula contains green tea extract for increased energy, and Black Cohosh to fight hot flashes and mood swings.
- Black cohosh and rhizome extract- 20mg
- L-Theanine – 50 mg
- Hops Flower Extract – 100mg
- Valerian Root Extract – 200 mg
The PM formula contains Black Cohosh to fight night sweats for more restful sleep, and L-Theanine for relaxation.
Bot the AM and PM formulations contain soy.
Take the AM tablet in the morning and the PM tablet in the evening about 30 – 45 minutes before you go to sleep. The manufacturer notes that it may take four to five weeks for the full benefits to be felt and that to maintain the benefits you should keep taking the medication.
The suggested retail price for a pack of 60 tablets (a one-month supply) is $24.50. At the time we wrote this review you could also buy the same package on Amazon for the same price.
Possible Side Effects
The manufacturer warns that if you develop abdominal pain, dark urine or jaundice (which can be symptoms of liver trouble) discontinue use and consult your doctor. Black cohosh has been known to cause cramping and stomach upsets. As with most dietary supplements, the side effects may vary on the individual. Pregnant and nursing women should not use this product nor should anyone with a liver disorder.
There is no apparent guarantee as we were unable to find a return or refund policy. This is obviously not ideal from a customer perspective raising questions about the manufacturer’s confidence in the quality and effectiveness of the supplement.
Integrative Therapeutics AM/PM Menopause Formula Review – The Bottom line
AM/PM Menopause Formula has potential to be a helpful product for women suffering with symptoms of menopause. It is made of natural ingredients and does not contain hormones. Further, the company has GMP certification which should create confidence regarding the purity of the ingredients. However, this is a product whose real effects on curbing the menopausal symptoms are not substantiated. While it has a majority of positive ratings from Amazon customers, some women dislike the product as it was not effective for them and warn others not to purchase it. Some found that the undesirable effects like cramps, stomach upsets and allergic reactions were challenging to cope with. In addition, the lack of a money-back policy of some kind means that prospective new customers cannot try the product risk-free. We do not feel we can recommend this product.
