Helping women live a healthy and balanced life is core to femMED.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
femMED is proud to announce the issuance of the natural product number (NPN 80039359) from Health Canada for femMED Breast Health.
femMED Breast Health has undergone a Health Canada approved clinical trial involving pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women. Results of the study were peer-reviewed and published in the Journal Breast Cancer: Basic and Clinical Research, as well as the Natural Medicine Journal. The study demonstrated how a specific combination of nutritional ingredients found in femMED Breast Health may help maintain healthy breast tissue. Researchers say they have uncovered a possible way for women to favourably influence whether estrogen in their body takes a “beneficial” or a “disease-potential” path.
Maggie Laidlaw PhD, the lead investigator, said, "The results of this clinical trial in a relevant population of women show promise that there may be a proactive way to support healthy metabolism of estrogens through nutritional supplementation and, by extension, support breast health."
The femMED Breast Health supplement has been specially formulated to help promote healthy estrogen metabolism and support a healthy estrogen metabolite ratio. True to femMED’s dedication to creating premium natural health products, femMED Breast Health is free of dairy, egg, gluten, yeast, artificial colours and flavours, delivered in a vegetable capsule and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
