Femarelle® should be taken twice daily, one capsule in the morning and one in the evening; it can be taken with or without food.
We have seen that, in some women, an increase of the dosage to three capsules per day, taking two when the relief is most needed, has been shown to be beneficial. Therefore, if the symptoms are stronger during the day, two capsules should be taken in the morning and one in the evening, for a week, and, if the symptoms are more difficult at night, the morning dose should remain at one capsule with the increased dosage taken in the evening. There is no risk in taking a larger dose, and the dosage can be reduced back to two capsules a day once improvement in the symptoms is felt. Please note that it is crucial that Femarelle® be taken twice a day regardless of the dosage.
Femarelle® is not an estrogen or hormone. It is a natural dietary supplement made from a proprietary tofu extract, flax and vitamins.
No, Femarelle® is a gluten-free product.
No, Femarelle® does not contain glucose.
The capsule protects the active ingredient from the high acidity of the stomach, which may destroy it, so we recommend not opening the capsules. However, if taking the powder alone relieves your symptoms, you may continue taking Femarelle® this way.
Two capsules per day have been found to be effective for most women; however, if you need to increase the dosage, you may do so according to the time of the day that you suffer most, without risk (see answer to CAN THE DOSAGE BE INCREASED?).
If a dose is missed, the capsule should be taken as soon as possible, and the regular schedule should then be resumed. There is no need to take a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
Femarelle® is a dietary supplement that can be taken safely for the long term to enhance women’s well-being in the post reproductive stage of their lives. The longer you take Femarelle®, the longer it will support your daily life.
