Our Menopause Support is a tincture formula that does what its name suggests. Namely, it helps relieve the symptoms associated with that difficult time of transition in a woman’s life.

• With dong quai, which has been called “female ginseng”
• Includes chastetree, which works through the pituitary gland and acts as a hormone normalizer
