Overall Rating for Estrium Medical Food Natural Tropical Mango Powder - 23 oz (644 Grams)

Has made all the difference for anxiety & hormone imbalance.
By TM from Nevada on October 24, 2011
After being on bio-identical hormones for about 3 years, I was doing much better mood-wise. Still I was experiencing anxiety that I could not overcome. My naturopath recommended Estrium to "flush the hormones out of my liver" as she put it. What a miracle! I started out using the recommended amount. Over the months, I now only use 1 scoop every other day. The anxiety is controlled like I've never seen before. I just get into the car for long trips now, without going through heavy anxiety & "what ifs". I can't believe the difference. Estrium Medical Food Natural Tropical Mango Powder has given me my life back.
Pros:It balances hormones!
I like the tastes of both the mango & the whey vanilla.
Cons:The cost is pretty steep.
I'd like to get the soy in vanilla flavor. Also other flavors might be nice.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
not sure if this is working...
By Heather from Fallbrook, CA on July 7, 2011
I get a bit sick of it as well. Still experimenting with it.
I definitely don't think it's worth 50 bux, tho, at this point. However, I suffer greatly from PMS so I may be a tough one to crack. : )
