Frequently Asked Questions
Who can or should use Relizen?
Relizen is intended for the woman who is experiencing hot flashes associated with menopause. It has been shown to be safe in women in multiple clinical studies.
What are the ingredients in Relizen?
Primary Ingredients: Purified Cytoplasmic Blend (proprietary Swedish Flower pollen extract in the form of Pollen + Pistil Extract PI-82, and Pollen Extract GC-FEM).
Other Ingredients include: Isomalt, Maltodextrin, Microcrystalline cellulose, Acacia, Magnesium Stearate, Vitamin E (as d-α-tocopheryl succinate), Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (alternatively HPMC), Silica, Polysorbate.
How long does Relizen take to work?
We recommend that you take Relizen every day for at least two months for the best results.
In a clinical study, there were improvements in symptoms by month 2 and significant reductions by month 3 among those women taking the recommended dose of Relizen consistently, versus those taking a sugar pill. An open-label extension on this study followed the women taking Relizen for an extra 3 months, and saw even further reductions by month 6, suggesting that Relizen builds up in the body over time, becoming more and more effective.
In a survey of over 3,500 women, after three months, 71% of patients noted hot flash relief, 73% experienced reduced hot flash frequency, and 71% experienced reduced intensity.
Does Relizen have any side effects?
Relizen is plant-based and does not have any hormonal side-effects. Relizen has been used safely in Europe by over 1 million women, where it has been available for over 15 years. In clinical studies, any side effects reported were no different than those reported by people taking placebo tablets (sugar pills). If you have specific concerns, we recommend that you speak with your doctor.
How does Relizen work?
Relizen is hypothesized to work through a serotonergic mechanism of action. Rather than going through the hormonal pathways in your body like other menopausal supplements do, Relizen works with your body’s internal thermostat to give your body back its natural ability to regulate its temperature, without hormonal side effects.
How do I take Relizen?
Take two pills once daily, with a glass of water. Use consistently for at least two months for best results.
Can I take this with other supplements?
While we don’t expect there to be any negative interactions with other supplements, there have been no clinical studies done on taking our products with other supplements. We recommend you reach out to your healthcare provider if you have specific questions.
Can I take Relizen at a higher dose?
The main ingredient in Relizen (Swedish Flower pollen extract) has been safely evaluated at twice the dose and no safety risks or adverse events were seen at that dose. We recommend that you discuss your symptoms with your doctor before making changes to your treatment plans.
Is Relizen approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration)?
Relizen is a dietary supplement, and the FDA does not approve dietary supplements. However, under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DHSEA), the FDA regulates dietary supplements under a different set of regulations than those covering “conventional” foods and drug products.

How our customers feel about Relizen
“I admit that I was skeptical about this product working for me but decided to give it a try anyway. After about 6 weeks, I noticed that I was sleeping better. I have now cooled off enough that I actually sleep with covers on. And best of all, I can finally snuggle with my husband again without feeling like I’m on fire! Thank you for giving me back a treasured part of my intimacy with my husband!”
“About two years ago, I began full menopause mode. Night sweats that lingered into day sweats! I was literally having hot flashes about once every ten minutes. It became almost debilitating. I couldn't get work done, couldn't sleep, and was miserable. Each hot flash seemed to just intensify until I finally just couldn't take it anymore. I saw my doctor and she recommended Relizen because of my history of migraines and hormones as well as cancer risk. I ordered up my first month's worth and started taking it immediately when the box showed up on my doorstep. I haven't missed a day since! Within a week, the number of hot flashes per hour decreased from about 5 to 1-2. Within 2 weeks, the night sweats stopped and so did the hot flashes! I felt cured and had some of the most restful nights sleep in a very long time. My husband was also relieved that I didn't wake him up anymore with all the blanket switching going on at night. Two years later, it's still working and I couldn't be happier to not have to deal with being uncomfortable anymore! Thank you!!! My husband says thank you too!”
“I was getting hot flashes hourly and all through the night. So much so that I was loosing sleep. I was tired, frustrated and HOT! Now I have found RELIEF AT LAST! I was skeptical at first because I had read reviews that it could take between 2-3 months. It took me a solid 2 1/2 months, but I'm so glad that I stuck it out, because the relief was worth the wait.”
