I love Estroven Nighttime, but check the ingredient list before buying!
on February 18, 2012
Please beware - this deal is too good to be true, there is a reason the price is so good.
I have been taking Estroven nighttime successfully for 18 months (and highly recommend it), buying three packs from Amazon, but with this last order, the product ingredients had changed dramatically. The box images look the same, so I didn't pay attention to the minor changes to the front of box copy. Today, I was talking to my mom about her night sweats and telling her how well Estroven Nighttime works for me. When I got out the box to show her, I freaked out when I saw the long ingredient list had shrunken considerably. And it now contained soy and melatonin, not black cohosh and valerian.
I am a breast cancer survivor so I will not take soy supplements, AND I now realize that for the past two weeks I haven't gotten any black cohosh in my system, so my night sweats and hot flashes could return any second. So I had to buy black cohosh today and hope I can catch up...
Please note on the Estroven Nighttime page the "Legal Disclaimer" that says packaging and materials may be different from the photo. Oh, how true that is! I have also reported the picture as incorrect. Buyer beware. Be sure to check the back of the box or get an ingredient list before you buy the product - that's all I can say. I won't be buying on Amazon until that is provided.
