WESTPORT, Conn., May 16 Tao Formulations announces theofficial launch of Tao Harmony - Menopause Relief Formula, at the InternalMedicine 2008 conference in Washington DC. This revolutionary product is theculmination of years of research to develop a safe, all-natural, non-hormonal(estrogen-free) alternative for relieving menopausal symptoms.
Company founder and CEO, Dr. Adam Ofer, a board certified obstetrician andgynecologist, founded Tao Formulations (www.TaoFormulations.com) in an effortto help his patients. Over 80% of women suffer from hot flashes and nightsweats during the hormonal transition into menopause. Many women also havesignificant negative changes in their mood and trouble sleeping. Due tomounting evidence that traditional hormone replacement therapy, includingestrogen, carries dangerous risks, most women do not choose such therapy.Between 50% and 75% of menopausal women have tried some form of complimentarytherapy to treat their symptoms. Until now, however, physicians have beenhesitant to recommend herbal products due to the lack of good quality researchand standardization of such herbal preparations. Tao Formulations has changedthat by bringing the rigorous standards of the pharmaceutical industry to theformulation and production of Tao Harmony.
In a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial involving 164 women, TaoHarmony has been shown to reduce hot flash frequency in 83.5% of women. Inthose women, the number of hot flashes has been reduced by 82% and of theremaining hot flashes; the intensity was reduced by 57%. Women in the studyalso reported improvement in sleep (84.7% versus 44.3% with placebo) andimproved mood (77.6% versus 34.2% with placebo). Most striking, is that 92.9%of women taking Tao Harmony "generally feel better" than they did prior tostarting the study. Side-effects were no more than with placebo.
We are very excited to present to the medical community the research ofour novel supplement containing super-concentrated standardized extracts.Finally, there is an herbal treatment for menopausal symptoms that physicianswill feel comfortable recommending.
