Menopause – it’s something every woman naturally experiences, with some of us having a smoother ride than others. Did you know that 1 in 5 women will experience unpleasant menopausal symptoms that significantly interfere with their everyday lives?¹
This includes:² ³

  • Hot flushes; 
  • Sleep disturbance; 
  • Mood swings; 
  • Fatigue; 
  • Low libido;  
  • Vaginal dryness;  
  • Muscle aches; and 
  • Joint pain.

Luckily, Estrovera provides a plant-derived option to help you overcome these uncomfortable menopausal symptoms. Formulated with an evidence-based, plant-derived ingredient (ERr 731™), Estrovera reduces hot flushes, relieves vaginal dryness, supports healthy libido, decreases irritability and restless sleep, improves muscle aches and mild joint pain and reduces fatigue associated with menopause. In this blog, we answer the top 6 questions we get asked about Estrovera.


What makes Estrovera different?

Estrovera contains a plant extract of Siberian rhubarb (ERr 731™) that has been recommended by healthcare professionals globally for menopause symptom management for over three decades. ERr 731™ has been clinically demonstrated, through extensive research including randomised controlled trials, to safely and effectively reduce menopausal symptoms.


Can Estrovera be taken alongside medications?

Yes, Estrovera can be taken alongside many common medications used to manage menopause symptoms. However, it is best to discuss the suitability of Estrovera for your specific circumstance with your healthcare professional.


How long does it take to work?

You can expect to feel symptom relief in as little as four weeks! Clinical trials demonstrate relief of hot flushes from four weeks,⁵ with further improvements in sleep issues, mood swings, fatigue, low libido, vaginal dryness and muscle and joint pain within 12 weeks.⁶ ⁷


How does Estrovera work & does it contain oestrogen?

Estrovera does not contain oestrogen. Instead, natural compounds within Siberian rhubarb (ERr731™) work to influence the body’s sensitivity to the fluctuating levels of oestrogen common in perimenopause. This can lessen the shock of intense hormonal fluctuations which can trigger menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes.⁶ 


Can Estrovera be taken long-term?

Yes, Estrovera is suitable for long-term use. A two-year observational study showed that Siberian rhubarb (ERr731™) reduced menopausal symptoms with no safety concerns reported.7 ERr731™ has been used globally to manage menopause symptoms for more than 30 years.⁴


What should I do if I miss a dose?

It is best to take your Estrovera dose at the same time every day to regulate symptom fluctuations. If you miss a dose, simply get back to your normal dosing schedule as soon as possible.
