Remedies for the worst menopausal symptoms
Did you know that 85% of all women experience some symptoms during peri-menopause? And that the transition and symptoms can last over 10 years as many women's hormones start to decline around age 40!
Well, let me tell you, I've been there. Thankfully, as an acupuncturist and functional nutrition advisor, I have a toolbox full of options. And, I was so happy to be selected last year to help test this new product from USANA.
In order to properly test it, I had to go off of all my herbal remedies that I was currently taking to eliminate my menopausal symptoms. That made me super nervous, like I needed more anxiety, as I was feeling great with my current supplements. So I went off everything and only took the test product.
And, you know what? I felt fabulous! So much so that I called them and asked if I could have more of the formula. No, it wasn't available at that time, but it is NOW!!!!
The natural decline of estrogen and progesterone hormones associated with menopause can cause even vibrant, healthy women to experience uneasy changes during this transition. USANA EstroPro™ is a gentle, naturally derived supplement designed to offset hormone fluctuations to help relieve common
symptoms of menopause.*
USANA EstroPro can help with hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, changes in skin and hair, and occasional sleeplessness that even healthy women may experience during menopause. Plant-based ingredients provide a safe option for targeted support while maintaining cardiovascular and bone health.*
The USANA Difference
Created for the unique transition of menopause, this naturally derived women’s health supplement helps to ease common menopausal symptoms. Some of the key ingredients include red clover, soy isoflavones, flaxseed extract, and licorice root extract. They provide a gentle option for women who experience hot flashes and other uncomfortable symptoms associated with the fluctuation of hormones during menopause.
The naturally derived botanical extracts offer symptomatic support while contributing to cardiovascular and bone health.*
- Helps provide gentle relief from commonly experienced menopausal symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.*

- Formulated to help maintain healthy bone mass and heart health, common health concerns both during and after the transition into menopause*

Soy isoflavones provide a source of phytoestrogens, plant-based compounds that have an estrogenic effect in the body to help with common menopausal symptoms.*
Red clover also provides a source of phytoestrogens to help offset the body’s response to normal hormone changes associated with the menopausal transition.*
Flaxseed Extract contains antioxidants, lignans, and omega-3s to help support bone density and cardiovascular function.*
Licorice root extract contains flavonoids, saponins, and other beneficial compounds that support healthy hormone function while it helps maintain neural activities to support mood.*
Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle at every stage of life is important. Additional support, especially during this impactful shift, can help keep your focus on the things that matter most.
Women in menopause experience a natural reduction of estrogen, shifting their body’s state of health. As women age, it’s important they maintain cardiovascular health, support energy levels, and nurture their skin. Powerful supplements can deliver extra vitality to live every day to its fullest.
