Why do I need to drink water when I take the formula?
In order to properly activate the glucomannan fiber it must mix with water only. Replacing water with juice could cause stomach upset and will impact the effectiveness of the Weight Management formula.
How much weight will I lose?
Weight loss varies depending on each individual. With Weight Management you have the best opportunity to reach your weight loss goals if you use the product consistently and follow the directions. Average weight loss could be 1-2 lbs per week.
Can you take this product if you have heart disease or high cholesterol/blood pressure?
Yes, Weight Management can help normalize cholesterol and triglyceride levels in many people. There are many studies on glucomannan (the key ingredient in Weight Management) that indicates its effectiveness for many health issues, however, we do still recommend you consult with your healthcare professional.
How does the product work?
Weight Management creates a feeling of fullness. It also traps and binds some of the fat in the foods you eat so that it is not absorbed into your system. As a result, this formulation reduces caloric intake from fat and adds healthy fiber into your diet.
Can I substitute water with juice when taking Weight Management?
No. In order to properly activate the glucomannan fiber it must mix with water only. Replacing water with juice could cause stomach upset and will impact the effectiveness of the Weight Management formula.
Where are the femMED products manufactured?

All production facilities maintain a Health Canada Pharmaceutical Establishment License (EL), and are therefore certified as following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

What do you mean by “products are complementary”?
All of our products have been designed for women only, and during the development process, we were careful to ensure that our products could be used together. Therefore a woman needing support for her menopause symptoms, breast health and prevention of osteoporosis, for example, can use 3 femMED products together – Menopause Relief, Breast Health and Bone Health without worrying about contraindications. The only 2 products that should not be used together are our Sleep and Energy formulas.
Why do you use vegetable capsules instead of gel capsules?
We set out to create the highest quality solutions in the marketplace today. We were very much against the use of gel caps because of the process by which they are manufactured. Gel caps are derived from primarily pig and bovine skin and bones. Gel caps are commonplace in the supplement and pharmaceutical markets, but as a company, we believe that vegetable caps are the better choice.
What are additives?
When it comes to choosing a nutritional supplement what is NOT in the product is just as important as what is. Be sure to carefully examine the NON-MEDICINAL ingredients, sometimes called excipients or additives. Many popular brands contain fillers, preservatives, glazes, sweeteners, artificial colors, binders, deodorizers, chemicals and potential allergens, such as lactose, gluten, dyes and gelatin. Some products include chemicals like titanium dioxide and sodium benzoate, which can be associated with significant health risks. So it is important to read the label carefully before you buy.
femMED offers a range of top quality nutritional supplements designed specifically for women that are free of these undesirable additives.
Is femMED environmentally responsible?

femMED bottles are made from HDPE #2 and can be recycled through most municipal recycling programs. All of our bottles are free from BPA and phthalates and the cotton that we use is elemental chlorine free (ECF).
