Q.How does Estrium® Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
Lifestyle choices, such as unhealthy foods, may influence hormone metabolism and associated symptoms. Unlike some approaches, this medical food program provides non-soy phytoestrogens (from kudzu and flax) to promote hormone balance. And it was designed to complement dietary recommendations to help you achieve greater success. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.
Q.How does Estrium® Medical Food work?
This product provides research-based nutrients that support healthy estrogen metabolism and hormone cycles. It's enhanced with specific nutrients--including rice protein developed through a patented manufacturing process, phytoestrogens, antioxidants, and fiber--to support hormone balance. Rice protein has a lower allergenic potential than many common animal or vegetable protein sources. This product is recommended for use with a targeted eating plan to help nutritionally manage PMS symptoms.
Q.How long is Estrium® Medical Food typically recommended?
The initial phase of the Estrium Program (with a targeted eating plan) is generally 8 weeks. Depending on your response, your health care professional may suggest that you continue on the program, continue Estrium or the diet alone, or use some other combination of diet and nutritional supplementation. It may also be advised that you take Estrium only in the second half of your menstrual cycle. For best results, follow your health care professional's guidelines.
