3 capsules daily taken with food or as directed by a health care practitioner. 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 do I stop like I do with my birth control pill? Yes, continue to take EstroSense during your period. Does EstroSense contain soy? No, this product is soy free. I see that EstroSense contains milk thistle, but isn't milk thistle estrogenic? We use milk thistle seed extracts in EstroSense and no, this is not an estrogenic ingredient - it is a very safe herb that can help your liver detoxify cancer causing estrogens. How much elemental calcium (if any) is in the 150mg dosage of Calcium D-Glucarate that is in each EstroSense capsule? Calcium D-Glucarate contains 16.15% calcium, therefore each capsule of EstroSense contains 12mg of elemental calcium (or 36mg per 3 capsule dose). Who should take EstroSense? Do I stop when I reach menopause? Any female from the time she gets her first menstral cycle and right through menopause, should be taking EstroSense. Even if a woman has stopped menstruating, she will still be exposed on a daily basis to exogenous estrogens from the environment and may still have "bad" estrogens stored in the body's fatty tissue. Also, many post-menopausal women do take HRT - which, like the birth control pill, has negative side effects that EstroSense can help counteract. Your label doesn't specify what time of day I should take these capsules? As long as you are taking the recommended dosage (based on the condition you are trying to address) within a 12-hour day, then it really doesn't matter what time you take them. Many seem to prefer to take 3 capsules with breakfast and the additional 3 capsules (if/when required) with dinner. If someone would rather take all 6 capsules at once, that is fine too. How long before I notice a difference by using EstroSense? EstroSense was designed to help ensure that your hormones are balanced, to help halt ovarian pain and to help alleviate your PMS symptons while normalizing your periods. You should notice EstroSense working within two to three menstrual cycles. I have started taking EstroSense, but am now experiencing cramps and mid-cycle bleeding. What could be happening? EstroSense is important for supporting the liver and detoxification of unhealthy estrogens as well as helping to reduce inflammation. If the liver is very congested then, in some cases, people may experience a cycle with increased cramping as the body is detoxifying. If you are taking the full recommended dosage of EstroSense, you might want to consider minimizing your dosage in order to support a gentler detoxification. If your cramping and mid-cycle bleeding persist, you should see your GP or ND and request an ultrasound, in order to determine what other possible underlying factors are at play. I have to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory just before and then during my period. Can EstroSense help instead? PMS and menstrual cramping usually involve inflammation caused by estrogen dominance. Our EstroSense formula includes herbs to help support healthy metabolism of excess estrogens through the liver and to balance the body's estrogen/progesterone ratio. Continue to take EstroSense during your period and over time you may not even have to take the anti-inflammatory anymore. I am currently using Wild Yam cream. Can I use EstroSense also? Yes, Wild Yam cream and EstroSense can be taken together. Is it safe to take EstroSense and Vitex together? Yes, we recommend taking these two supplements together to possibly help with fertility issues, as well as with concerns regarding painful periods and heavy bleeding. Can men take EstroSense? Yes, they can. Just as women can experience estrogen dominance from xenoestrogens (exogenous estrogens from the environment), so can men. Calcium-d-glucarate, Indole-3-carbinol and sulphoraphane all help metabolize excess estrogen from the body through the liver. Milk thistle and curcumin help support the liver for detoxification. Lycopene, green tea and rosemary are all potent antioxidants - and all these ingredients are totally safe to be taken by men and are certainly not female specific. Are your capsules GMO free? Yes, both our capsule shells and our softgel shells are GMO free.
