Lunada Biomedical’s Amberen Review
When Lunada Biomedical decided to tackle menopause, they looked no further than their own blend of ingredients to promise relief in menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue and more. With their detailed product website, they review the hormonal imbalance that causes menopause and how Amberen will help the communication between the hypothalamus and the organs. In this review of Lunada Biomedical’s Amberen, we will advise you whether they really are “changing menopause for the better.”
- Proprietary compound, 400mg, consisting of:
- Ammonium Succinate
- Calcium Disuccinate
- Monosodium L-Glutamate
- Magnesium Disuccinate Hydrate
- Zinc Difumarate Hydrate
- Tocopheryl Acetate
- Other ingredients include: gelatin, rice flour, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, riboflavin, carmine and water
What is interesting about this formula is that it does not include a nighttime and daytime usage plan as many other menopausal supplements would. Moreover, it is missing some key elements found in more natural formulas including black cohosh, wild yam, boron and others. For a proprietary compound, they are missing vital minerals. We also could not find a GMP certification although they are listed as clinically proven.
For best results, women are asked to take two capsules daily after breakfast, one orange and one white. Although symptoms can improve after as little as 30 days, customers are asked to continue for at least 90 days. If symptoms persist, one should speak to an Amberen nurse to inquire about adjustments to the regimen.
Amberen is sold as a 30-day supply for $39.99. Those that subscribe can save monthly witha cost of $29.99. If a customer would like to purchase a 90-day supply (which the website claims is the clinical recommendation), the cost is $79.99 and shipping is free. If Amberen is now part of the daily routine, the cost for 180-day supply is $149.99 and shipping is also free.
Possible Side Effects
Although the website does not list any side effects, it’s important to note that MSG can cause rashes to those who are allergic. While Lunada Biomedical says clinical studies have shown there are no adverse side effects to Amberen, the research we did showed otherwise. Many customers complained that hot flashes increased and that it kept them up all night.
Lunada Biomedical has a 45-day money back guarantee. Any customer unsatisfied with their purchase can return it within 45 days. Only one refund is allowed per household. Since it takes between 30-90 days to see results, this makes for a rather short refund policy.
Lunada Biomedical’s Amberen Review – The Bottom Line
Amberen by Lunada Biomedical is a great product in theory: They make a convincing case with their extremely detailed explanations of menopause and how their ingredients are the key to making symptoms better. However, they are missing some key ingredients in their formula — the biggest one being no difference between night and day formulas. And we are concerned by the complaints from some customers that it keeps them up at night. The company also does not have the best refund policy, not providing enough time to comfortably test its effectiveness.
