Treatments for menopause symptoms
There are many treatments for menopause symptoms ranging from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to natural alternatives.
Natural treatments for menopause
A lot of women choose to manage the various stages of menopause naturally and there are several natural alternatives to HRT. These range from herbal remedies to nutritional supplements and therapies such as yoga, acupuncture and mindful breathing. One of the newest and most effective natural treatments available is 40+ (formerly known as EstroG-100™).
40+: a natural treatment for menopause with no known side effects.
40+ is a clinically proven, all-natural therapy for menopause. Its patented formulation – known as EstroG-100™ – is a combination of three herbal extracts from the plant roots of Phlomis umbrosa (similar to sage), Cyanchum wilfordii (a climbing vine), and Angelica gigas Nakai (Korean angelica). These plants have at least 400 years of documented usage and history in Korea and China.
Most women see noticeable improvements in four weeks, however, because every body is different, we recommend taking 40+ for a minimum of 12 weeks for best results.
EstroG-100™ was developed by a doctor in South Korea where it was the fastest growing nutraceutical supplement in 2014. It has gone on to be a popular natural health product in Canada and a key ingredient in over-the-counter menopause support products in the United States.
Health Canada has reviewed the safety of EstroG-100™ before approving the registration for sale in Canada in 2011 as a natural health product. EstroG-100™ was not only approved, but approved without any requirement to put any warnings, precautions or risk information on the product label. This is the only clinically proven menopause product able to be marketed without any warnings.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDI) approved EstroG-100™ as a New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) in 2010 after reviewing over 100 pages of safety and efficacy data. There were no objections to the application.
Our 40+ contains pure EstroG-100™ and is also:

- Lactose Free
- Contains no artificial sweeteners or colours
- Contains no alcohol

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone replacement therapy is, as the name sounds, therapy based on the principle of women receiving a group of medications to artificially boost the level of naturally occurring hormones that decline during menopause. HRT can be effective, but sometimes doctors prescribe synthetic hormones leading to some undesirable side effects including a higher risk of cancer.
Premarin is one commonly used synthetic hormone in HRT, and is derived from the urine of pregnant mares! Not only does it come with risks and side effects, but it’s also not good for the horses, however that’s another story. (If you’re concerned about animal cruelty read on here.)
Common side effects of Premarin include stomach upset or cramps, nausea/vomiting, bloating, breast tenderness or swelling, headaches, weight or appetite changes, freckles or darkening of facial skin, increased hair growth, loss of scalp hair, problems with contact lenses, vaginal itching or discharge, changes in your menstrual periods, decreased sex drive, nervousness, dizziness, or tired feeling.
For these reasons, we believe a natural herbal remedy is a much safer and gentle option on the body.
It’s why we built this company. To offer a natural alternative to women seeking solutions.
