Rewarded Review

Quality of the ingredients are great and help in reducing the blood flow. My only challenge was taking the dosage as prescribed on the bottle is not sustainable for me for the duration of my period. Also, adding K1 benefits the end result but I am weary of adding K1 and not K2 for prolonged periods of time. It may coagulate the blood excessively and lead to blood clots?! The size of the pills is acceptable. The taste is ok. NO aftertaste at all. Overall, I take it on the first day of the period but no further. It ends up shortening my period to 4 days ( from 7 days).

I started taking when the cramping started. Day 2 of my cycle is normally heavy with intense pain but it wasn't as bad! I could tolerate it and I didn't have all those endless clots!! Why hasn't anyone ever td me about this mix. I'm so Thankful, this is heaven sent. I can't imagine my cycle without it.

I take this product for heavy bleeding during my cycle. I’ve had heavy periods for almost 15 years. I was ready to have a medical procedure but found these a few years ago. They make my heavy days, day 1 &2, more manageable. They also help my teenage daughter with her cramps. A life saver!

As a 53 year old, who is in the throes of perimenopause, this past year has wrecked havoc with my periods. In the last year, I have been confined to being at home due to heavy, heavy bleeding (ultra sized tampons and pads needing changing hourly or large menstrual cup needing a change about every 1.5 to 2 hours). My only saving grace is that I work from home and therefore it is not a problem--but I've had to put off social engagements. I know due to my age it's most likely fibroids and the lack of estrogen. I'm not getting a regular monthly period every month--I might for a month or two, and then nothing for a few to several months and then the floodgates open again. I was beginning to research medical methods (none of which have really good response or does not come with horrible side effects) when I stumbled upon this product. I figured I would give it a chance to see if I had any luck. I ordered some and then waited for my next period. When my period did come (the 2nd time in a month :-( ), my husband and I had scheduled a getaway to a Bed and Breakfast in a state park. My initial response was PANIC knowing how my periods were awful and my husband offered to cancel but it was something we really looked forward to. I started taking Slow Flow and to my surprise...IT WORKED! We were able to hike and bike and do everything. My period was still on the heavier side but DEFINITELY manageable. I am so excited I found this supplement and highly recommend it to everyone that is experiencing heavy periods during perimenopause. I'm ordering a bottle to always have one on hand!

It really works very well, but I am afraid to take too many in a day or for too many days since I heard that it can cause blood clots. I only use it when I really need to slow the flow for a special occasion.

This really helped easing/stopping my months-long spotting after my IUD insertion. If you struggle with the same issue, try it. I only used one bottle and the bleeding mostly stopped. When it re-occured I took them again for a week or so and that helped greatly. Now, the spotting has stopped completely, I'm so happy!

These helped with really heavy periods. They seem to have pretty much everything (plenty of vitamin A, bioflavanoids, vitamin K, shepherds purse, etc) that would be helpful for heavy and lengthy periods before menopause. I haven't found anything else that includes these ingredients in one pill. I have trouble swallowing pills but was pleasantly surprised that you can easily open veg capsules. But it's only 60 pills, wish they weren't so expensive.

I am glad that I found this! Before these pills my flow was so heavy, I would have to change my pad 6 - 10 times a day for at least 5 days. At one point, my period lasted for almost the whole month. My flow is so much lighter now. Thank you!!!
