Why has the recommended dosage on EstroSense increased from 2-4 capsules per day to 3 capsules twice daily? Isn't this excessive?
The change to our suggested usage has been at the directive of Health Canada. It is our understanding that Health Canada has deemed the higher dosage necessary to have better therapeutic effects. With that being said, many people have experienced results at lower dosage.
Your label states: "Used in Herbal Medicine to promote a healthy liver", but then underneath it cautions about liver disease or liver trouble. Isn't this contradictory?
No, EstroSense is designed to help detoxify the liver, so this reminder has only been added for consumers who do already have a liver problem(s) that they need to consult their MD, NP or Health Care Practitioner before beginning to take EstroSense.
Why is there now a caution on your EstroSense labels about low iron levels?
The iron deficiency caution on our new EstroSense label is derived from the Green Tea Extract Monograph (which can be found on the Health Canada website). The new Health Canada regulations for NPNs require that we make reference to any and all cautions pertaining to the applicable monographs.
What is it about the Green Tea Extract that can affect iron absorption?
Green tea contains tannins that may affect iron absorption by forming a complex with the iron in the digestive tract and the resulted complex is not bioavailable (only plant sources of iron are affected by tannins).
What is "Sulforaphane"? Does it have anything to do with Sulpha drugs?
Our Sulforaphane is naturally occurring in broccoli and is obtained from broccoli. It has nothing to do with sulfa drugs.
I am on the birth control pill. Can I still take EstroSense?
Absolutely, EstroSense should be taken while on the pill. This product protects women from the negative effects of the pill by helping to protect the liver from converting your estrogens into cancer causing estrogens. Estrosense does not lower or reduce the effectiveness of the pill for birth control.
Should I continue to take EstroSense while I have my period, or d
