Happy Hormones Ingredients: Research Papers

Happy Hormones Ingredients: Research Papers

A common misconception is that natural medicines are not scientifically proven. In fact, there is a huge bank of research and clinical trials validating natural medicines. Another misconception is that natural medicines are not regulated and make false claims.

In Australia via the TGA and in the USA via the FDA, all health claims need to be substantiated. There are quite strict guidelines and any claims made without scientific validation come with heavy fines and product delisting. Below are some of the scientific studies used in the formulation of Happy Hormones and the claims validation process.

Best natural product

I feel I have tried every natural product available but none have come close to HH for helping me through the delightful menopause journey . I would highly recommend this product .

Inner Peace

I had been on Happy Hormones for a while and because i felt great i stopped taking it.
Now some months down the track and have had my marina removed and have started menopause i need it.
I need it to help with my stress levels for work and to increase my energy.

Happy with HH

I started taking HH 18 months ago. I noticed a reduction in my symptoms with 2 weeks and felt a lot better. After a few months I became a bit haphazard with taking it and found the symptoms starting to return. When I took HH regularly I felt fine. Recently I had a few stress and health issues and my symptoms started to come back even though I was taking my HH most of the time. I messaged re my issues onto the fb page and got help back straight away from the HHY staff. I adjusted my dose and now feel great again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :)

Happy

This is a great product and has helped me so much and will recommend it to anyone .

Happy Weight

Just reordered some more happy weight. Have only tried the vanilla and berry and love both these flavours. I've been using this as a protein boost to my morning smoothies or as a light meal at night if home late. Going to try it as meal replacement this time to try and shift some excess weight. If you are looking for a good protein powder I highly recommend this one.
