About Amberen

Amberen is an innovative clinically tested dietary supplement that helps relieve most common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause by naturally restoring hormonal balance. Amberen’s proprietary blend of succinates, amino acids, minerals and vitamin E has been clinically shown to stimulate production of female hormones without any side effects.** Amberen’s benefits are backed by double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, human clinical trials on menopausal women and over forty-five (45) years of scientific and clinical research on the main ingredients.* Amberen does not contain any hormones and is not a hormone replacement treatment. Amberen is not a prescription drug.

Amberen provides single relief for common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, low energy and fatigue, sleeplessness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, menopausal headaches and stress, lack of sexual interest, muscle and joint aches and menopausal weight gain.*

Menopausal symptoms are caused by age-related decline of estrogen. If taken as directed, Amberen targets the root cause of menopause and restores hormonal balance by stimulating your body’s natural production of estrogen, with no side effects.**

Amberen is an innovative dietary supplement because of its unique and proprietary ingredients and mechanism of action. Unlike other products, Amberen targets the underlying cause of menopausal symptoms; restores hormonal balance naturally; has no adverse side effects; contains no hormones, soy, black cohosh or other herbs; is effective for peri- and menopause and has multiple human clinical studies on the formulation. Plus, Amberen uniquely offers women free consultations with licensed nurses via Amberen NurseAid.
