Why Does It Work?

It contains phytoestrogens, which are natural estrogens found in plants. Their structure is similar to the structure of the natural estrogen created in our bodies.

Taking phytoestrogens gives our bodies estrogen like effects which can reduce hot flashes, nightsweats, and vaginal dryness. It can also help us to avoid osteoporosis.
