Estrogen is a hormone which activating all of the estrogen receptors (ER) in different tissues in the body.
Femarelle®, on the other hand, works selectively, thus activating the ER only in the tissues where activation is desired (brain skin & bone). In parallel, it blocks the ER in the tissues where activation in not desired, thus avoiding various adverse a and can lead many different adverse effects (mainly in your breast and uterus).*
Is There a Difference Between Femarelle® and Soy?
