The beginnings of NaturaNectar and PhenolicFactory were conceived at the turn of the century when a visionary Brazilian entrepreneur began work with Apiary ALMAR in the scenic northeast coast of Brazil. His work greatly impacted how the world would see a unique and intriguing new type of Brazilian bee propolis. Motivated by a strong desire to add significance to his life, this visionary Brazilian businessman partnered with top scientists from University of São Paulo, Brazil to ultimately discover a new type of propolis. This propolis would later become the foundation of this enterprise and one of the most promising natural substances ever investigated by science.

EaseFemin contains IsoFactor, their breakthrough proprietary ingredient from Brazilian Bee Propolis extracts. Bee Propolis has been used for thousand of years to alleviate health conditions of many civilizations.

Who should not take EaseFemin? Should I be concerned about allergies and other side effects?

A word on allergies: EaseFemin's IsoFactor contains Bee Propolis. Although allergy cases reported in literature are very rare and the EaseFemin patent-protected extraction process eliminates most of the non-essential components of Propolis, as a precaution you should not take EaseFemin before talking to your physician if you are allergic to bee stings and products such as pollen, honey and royal jelly. EaseFemin also contains soy isoflavones.
Is EaseFemin 100% natural?

NaturaNectar invested extensive time and resources in product development to bring this innovative, effective and pure product to you.
What's the difference between EaseFemin and other available natural supplements to support menopause?
EaseFemin has created a breakthrough in the treatment of the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. EaseFemin's IsoFactor, a new natural source of isoflavones, also known as phytoestrogens, is now available in the United States to provide you with an alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and to other natural supplements that may not have worked for you. Only EaseFemin has IsoFactor a patented water-based extract of the extremely healthy Brazilian Red Propolis.
What are isoflavones? Why are they so important as an EaseFemin ingredient? Isoflavones are so called “phytoestrogens” or a plant substance, that resembles human estrogen in chemical structure yet much weaker. By mimicking human estrogen at certain sites in the body, isoflavones provide many health benefits. Isoflavones create a balancing effect when the level of estrogen is low, such as during the menopause. Isoflavones can also prevent bad estrogen from exerting its harmful effects. Isoflavones are found in a variety of legumes, but only a few of them yield significant counts.
Up to recently, Menopause support natural supplements had to rely only on soy, red clover and kudzu root extracts to obtain isoflavone concentrates. EaseFemin's IsoFactor with its patent protected extraction technology brings to you the first natural supplement in the United States from a new botanical source of isoflavones (dalbergia ecastophyllum).
Why did EaseFemin add Antioxidants to its formula?
You will be pleased to know that in addition to the benefit of relieving menopausal symptoms, IsoFactor isoflavones and flavonoids are also powerful antioxidants. The truth is, they did not add antioxidants to the formula, they were there originally, put there as an added bonus by nature! It is not a coincidence that the resin from dalbergia ecastophyllum is extremely reddish in color. A DPPH test have shown an 84.25% effectiveness of IsoFactor against free radicals. While treating those cumbersome menopause symptoms, you'll also gain the positive effects of a free-radical scavenger as an added bonus!
If my symptoms start to come back, can I increase the dosage?
EaseFemin provides at least 40 mg of soy isoflavones plus IsoFactor isoflavones per day which is within the range of recommended dosage based on the typical isoflavone intake in Asian women's diets from natural sources. To be precautionary, they recommend you consult with your physician to determine if and for how long he/she believes you should sustain an increase in your daily dosage.
How long will it take for me to start feeling results?
EaseFemin should be taken daily for at least 6 weeks before a decision can be made regarding its effectiveness in your body. As with any natural supplement, it takes time to adapt to each individual's body and its delicate balance. For some, results come quickly while for others results take up to 10 -12 weeks to be noticed.
Should I take EaseFemin with food or on an empty stomach?
It's up to you—taking EaseFemin with or without food is matter of personal preference and convenience. It can be taken before, with, or between meals.
Good News, Bad News... Here comes the good news: There is fundamentally nothing wrong with you! Menopause and the period just before it, known as perimenopause, are commonly referred by doctors as a Phase of Life, meaning every woman goes through it. Just as when you were a girl growing into adolescence you experienced changes caused by an explosion of hormones in your body that triggered effects and symptoms of that phase of life, you are now experiencing or eventually will experience symptoms related to this new stage of your life. Instead of an explosion of hormones, during perimenopause your body starts to see a decline level of hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone.
Estrogen, which is produced in your body by the ovaries, is absorbed by cell receptors and has a fundamental role in keeping your reproductive system working properly during your fertile years. As your body starts to enter this new phase, your menstrual periods will become less frequent until they eventually cease. This is caused by a reduction in hormone production.
Now for the bad news: Your cell receptors are very used to receiving hormones regularly. With your body being deprived of estrogen and progesterone, these cells sometimes behave abnormally sending confusing messages to your brain. Remember that cell receptors were accustomed for decades to receiving hormones that would sit perfectly on them. This “hormone hunger” can trigger symptoms such as irritability, hot flashes and night sweats. There could also be other symptoms. However you don't need to dispair. Right here is the number one natural answer to help you face these challenging times.
Menopause 101 As you enter this new phase of your life, they believe that your most powerful tool is information. The information EaseFemin has included here is to get you started and in no way substitutes the importance of a good dialog with your physician or health care practitioner.
Menopause : Technically Menopause is a date, the date that a woman completes 12 uninterrupted months without any periods or menstruation.
Perimenopause : The years before a woman's final period and the 12 months subsequent to that final period. This phase is characterized by the reduction in a woman's body production of reproductive hormones, including estrogen and progesterone. Their levels may become more irregular and fertility diminishes.
Post-menopause : Is the entire period of years subsequent to Menopause, or the last menstrual period.
When does it happen? You may notice signs of the menopause transition as early as age 35, however, for most women the transition takes place in the mid to late 40's.
What conditions can affect it? There are some conditions that can trigger menopause much earlier. One of these being the surgical removal of the ovaries (oophorectomy) in an ovulating woman that can result in immediate menopause. Certain cancer chemotherapy and radiation therapy (depending on type and location of the cancer) if given to ovulating women can trigger menopause symptoms during or after such treatments. Finally premature ovarian failure, normally associated with hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus), can also trigger menopause and affects about 1% of the female population.
How long does it last? The duration of perimenopause and the culmination of this time on menopause date can be anywhere from two years to ten years or even longer. Unfortunately it is not possible to predict the actual duration and severity of perimenopause in any woman.
What are the symptoms? Throughout the years of perimenopause, many women experience changes related to hormonal fluctuation. The most common symptoms of menopause are the hot flashes during the day and night sweats at night. They are characterized by a sudden increase in a woman's body temperature; the body temperature peaks and then rapidly returns to normal, thus the expression “flash.” These events can raise your body temperature by many degrees quickly. As a result you may feel weak and break out in heavy sweating.
Is it dangerous? Although this stage of your life can generate discomfort; hot flashes, night sweats and mild irritability are not considered harmful by physicians.
What can I do? Menopausal discomforts can be treated! There are a variety of ways to address them. Traditional medicine has used hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for many decades. Many women are concerned about the possible negative side effects that have been reported in recent studies on HRT. Alternatively, plant-based phytoestrogens such as the ones present in NaturaNectar's all natural EaseFemin have been used for hundred of years by woman in many parts of the world and are becoming increasingly popular among women of all parts of the world.
Symptoms It is normal to wonder what's going on. A roller coaster of symptoms invade your life from increases in your body temperature to having difficult controlling your emotions and keeping your cool to not knowing how to predict your periods anymore to being forgetful from time to time. These are a few of the symptoms related to this phase of life. EaseFemin will help you with some of the worse discomforts of Menopause, and here are some of them:
Hot Flashes: May occur with different frequency during the day depending on each particular woman. It's characterized by a feeling of warmth which spreads over the body, usually most pronounced in the chest and the head. When a hot flash event takes place you may experience flushing and perspiration. They can last from 30 seconds to several minutes. There is no prediction model to tell you when they will start. Up to 40% of women still going through normal periods in their forties have hot flash occurrences. 80% of the women will finish these occurrences after five years but for about 10% of women it can take up to ten years for them to disappear. There is no understanding yet of the exact cause for hot flashes, but they are likely caused by declining levels of estrogen in your body.
Night Sweats: May occur with different frequency during the day depending on each particular woman. It's characterized by a feeling of warmth which spreads over the body, usually most pronounced in the chest and the head. When a hot flash event takes place you may experience flushing and perspiration. They can last from 30 seconds to several minutes. There is no prediction model to tell you when they will start. Up to 40% of women still going through normal periods in their forties have hot flash occurrences. 80% of the women will finish these occurrences after five years but for about 10% of women it can take up to ten years for them to disappear. There is no understanding yet of the exact cause for hot flashes, but they are likely caused by declining levels of estrogen in your body. These events occur during nighttime and may produce heavy sweating to the point of soaking your nightclothes even when your bedroom is at a pleasant cool temperature. Throughout the years of perimenopause, many women will experience them. Just like hot flashes, night sweats are the result of sudden increases in a woman's body temperature; the body temperature peaks and stays up for a little while and then returns to normal. When these events are frequent it can affect your quality of sleep making you feel tired during the day.
Is it Dangerous? Although this stage of your life will generate discomfort to you hot flashes, night sweats and mild irritability are not considered harmful by physicians and the good news is: They can be treated to ease their discomfort in a variety of ways, such as hormone replacement therapy, or plant-based phytoestrogens such as the ones present in EaseFemin.

I recommend this product!
Its really too soon to tell if this product will provide hormonal support in the long term. Ive only used it 3 months. I never had hot flashes so I dont know if it would help there. Im mainly interested in bone health, skin health, hair health and overall anti-ageing help from a product. Time will tell.
