How does i-cool work?
During and after menopause, a woman's estrogen levels drop. This drop often brings on discomforting symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats and mood changes, as well as the rapid loss of bone that can lead to bone health problems. The pure genistein in i-cool combats this drop in estrogen and alleviates, if not eliminates, miserable menopausal symptoms. Plus, i-cool has been clinically proven to maintain bone mineral density and bone mineral composition in menopausal women.
Can i-cool be taken with other supplements?
Yes. As with any nutritional supplement, please inform your healthcare professional before taking.
