Est-Adapt is an estriol-only formula, maximizing dosing options. Est-Adapt contains 0.5 mg per drop of estriol while the competing product contains 0.2 mg per drop. Other brands combine estriol and progesterone in the same formula, negating the opportunity for precision dosing. This creates limitations for addressing clinical needs and eliminates the option to use estriol on its own. For example, if a patient needs an additional 10 mg of estriol and is taking the combination product, they would be getting an extra 200 mg of progesterone, which is certainly contraindicated in the majority of cases.
Estriol is naturally produced in the body. Along with progesterone, estrogen is created in the ovaries and is needed to support a woman’s reproductive health. Research shows that estriol helps support the urinary tract. BioMatrix estriol is derived from an extraction of the steroidal backbone of the Mexican Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa). It is bioidentical, meaning it has the same molecular structure as that produced naturally by the body.
Vitamin E (mixed with tocopherols) is a blend of natural-source alpha-tocopherol and mixed tocopherols. An independent assay of a leading brand of oil-based hormones determined that only one form of vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) is included in their formula. Acetate is cheap acid, used in wood glue. BioMatrix Est-Adapt uses premium vitamin E in mixed tocopherol forms for enhanced stability and oxidative protection.
Rice Bran Oil is a reliable oil carrier that contributes to the stability and viscosity of numerous formulas.
Oil Hormone FAQ
How many drops of oil are in each bottle?
There are approximately 500 drops per bottle (at a price lower or equal to the competition, with 50% more product per bottle).
Why is the bottle only partially full?
The oil fills approximately 1/3rd of the bottle to allow for adequate shaking of the product before use, and to accommodate the glass pipette’s length and width.
What are some tips for handling the bottle?
Shake vigorously before use. If the oil seems to adhere to the bottom, slap the bottle on your palm a few times to loosen it, then shake vigorously. You can also dip the bottle in hot water for a few minutes to loosen contents after a period of not being used.
To best observe how much oil is left in your bottle, hold it up to bright light and tilt the bottle sideways. The dark amber glass bottle is used for protecting the oil and increasing stability.
Tilt the bottle and insert the dropper’s pipette to get every drop out of your bottle, as needed.
