Schaper & Brummer & Co’s Remifemin Review
Remifemin, by Schaper & Brummer is said to be clinically proven to reduce all symptoms associated with menopause. If you are having mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats and more, then this relief enhancement pill, say the makers, should do the trick for you. Moreover, it confirms that it has no estrogen and can be used in place of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to relieve signs of early menopause. In this review of Schaper & Brummer Remifemin, we will analyze all the claims so you can properly decide whether this is the right supplement for you at this stage in your life.
- RemiSure Black Cohosh Extract (root/rhoizome), 20mg
- Other ingredients: Lactose (milk), cellulose, potato starch, magnesium, stearate, natural peppermint flavor.
Although the label clearly states that this is ideal for women who prefer not to take any Estrogen, this formula seems amiss. It is true that Black Cohosh is a main ingredient in fighting headaches, mood changes, sleep problems, night sweats and hot flashes, all of which are symptoms of menopause. However, where are the other vitamins needed to address causes of this life change? Zinc, wild yam, boron? What about protykin which is known to have a weak estrogen effect and can help with symptoms?
Perhaps the most important lack however, is the fact that there are no separate daytime and nighttime formulas. Can this one pill give a woman the 24-hour solution she needs to rid herself of the stress associated with menopause?
Adult women should take one tablet in the morning and one in the evening.
Remifemin’s website does not list any prices. Instead when clicking on “buy now” customers are asked to input their zip code and then decide where in their area they would like to make their purchase. Walgreens, for example, sells, Remifemin at $17.99 for a one-month supply of 60 tablets. The Vitamin Shoppe sells the same box for $14.99. Amazon sells it for $16.96 however it is for 120 tablets and therefore a two-month supply.
Possible Side Effects
There are no listed side effects. This product does not contain soy, preservatives, coloring or flavoring. It is also gluten free. However, any pregnant or nursing women should not take it. Those with a liver disorder, or abdominal pain should speak to a doctor prior to usage.
There does not seem to be any type of refund policy on the website. This may be because the product is not sold on the website but has to be found in other places where dietary supplements are often found.
Remifemin Review – The Bottom Line
Remifemin suggests it is clinically proven to help remove the symptoms of menopause. Created by Schaper & Brummer, a German company, it uses its main ingredient Black Cohosh to persuade women to buy their product. While it is true that Black Cohosh is a main ingredient in most good menopausal formulas, it is not the only ingredient. This product is excellent in theory with its inexpensive price and easy to understand website, but we cannot get over the lack of ingredients or separation between day and night formulas. While some women may have luck with it, and many have according to reviews, there were also many who included multiple side effects, such as pain and cramps, spotting and weight gain. Women are complex and individual creatures and this stage is one of the hardest to go through. As women, we urge you to find a formula that not only contains Black Cohosh but that will distinguish between your daily and nighttime needs, for better success.
