Below we take an in-depth look at Ripped Femme Estro Therapy to see how it affects a woman’s hormones, and to see whether it can indirectly aid weight loss or not.
Ripped Femme Estro Therapy is designed to be used by women to help regulate their hormone levels. According to the manufacturers, this has numerous benefits, from reducing the levels of hormones that could impede the body’s ability to burn fat and build muscle, to improving mood, reducing the symptoms of PMS and improving skin elasticity.
Because many of the ingredients found in Ripped Femme Estro Therapy affect hormone levels, or act like hormones themselves, there are definitely a number of side effects that could occur whilst taking this product.
The use of St. John’s Wort means that consumers should avoid intense bursts of UV light (from tanning beds etc), as it can cause skin discoloration.
One of the ingredients found in Ripped Femme Estro Therapy could also decrease the consumer’s sex drive significantly.
A full list of the potential side effects that could develop whilst taking Ripped Femme Estro Therapy can be found below, under the Side Effects tab.
The price of Ripped Femme Estro Therapy does vary between different retailers, and there are two different sizes of bottle, one containing 90 capsules and another containing 60 capsules. In Canada, the average price of a bottle of 90 capsules varies between around CND$50 and CND$60. On US websites, the typical price of a bottle of 60 capsules appears to be UDS$39.99, plus delivery charges.
Whilst this does not appear to be an overly expensive supplement per bottle, the daily recommended dose means that this supplement could be quite expensive to use in the long term.
We are not hugely impressed by Ripped Femme Estro Therapy. The official website talks about hormone levels with authority, but is still vague about what hormones would be affected, and how they would be affected. Anyone who is concerned about their hormone levels should raise their concerns with their doctor instead, who can conduct tests to identify whether or not hormonal imbalances are causing the issues that this supplement claims to treat.
The manufacturers also state that the product should be taken for at least three months for the benefits to be seen by consumers. This is a very expensive investment to make for what could be a very small benefit or even no benefit at all. Whilst the product could reduce PMS symptoms and have other benefits, Ripped Femme Estro Therapy appears to be unlikely to affect weight loss, as claimed by the manufacturers.
If there is a significant hormonal imbalance, this could indirectly affect the consumer’s rate of weight loss, but it is most likely going to be secondary to other factors, such as diet and exercise. A significant hormonal imbalance could also be an indicator of a serious underlying health issue, making it even more important to consult a doctor if you are worried about your hormone levels.
The product is not covered by any money-back guarantee, although one third party retailer who sells the product, bodybuilding.com, do offer a fairly comprehensive returns policy.
There is also a lack of authentic customer reviews; anecdotal feedback is a great way of seeing how effective a product is in practice (in combination with looking at the supporting clinical research), but the only customer reviews we could locate had clearly been faked by the online retailer who is selling the product on amazon.
There is also a lengthy list of side effects that could occur whilst taking the product; whilst some side effects occur only occasionally or rarely, one of the ingredients in this supplement, Chaste Tree, appears to significantly lower the consumer’s sex drive as its main characteristic, making this side effect almost unavoidable.
Overall, we do not recommend Ripped Femme Estro Therapy to our readers.

Ripped Femme Estro Therapy is a general health supplement that is designed to be used exclusively by women. It is designed to ‘regulate hormone levels’, which, it is claimed, will have numerous benefits, ranging from reduced PMS, improved mood, and help to support a health immune system.
Ripped Femme Estro Therapy is manufactured by Ripped Femme. According to their official website, their “mission is to help women reach their health, wellness and fitness goals. Ripped Femme products are unique in that they are designed to address the one key difference between a man and a woman—the hormonal system. Every Ripped Femme product is made with premium, clinically validated ingredients and the highest level GMP quality control standards.”
Directions for use are as follows: As a dietary supplement, women take 1 capsule 2 to 3 times daily, preferably with food. Do not exceed 3 capsules daily. Use for a minimum of 3 months to see beneficial effects.
Ripped Femme do not release their address or even their general location on their official website. The website is registered to a company called SAGA Sciences International Inc., who are also the creators of the PharmaFreak range of weight loss and bodybuilding supplements. SAGA Sciences International are based in Vancouver, Canada, and their full contact details can be found on their official website. However, there is no mention of the Ripped Femme brand or range on the Saga Sciences International website, even though they refer to several other brands that they own. There is a generic contact box available on the Ripped Femme official website where consumers can enter their name, email address and query, so that the company can contact them directly. They also have active Twitter and Facebook accounts that they could be contacted through.
According to the manufacturers, Ripped Femme Estro Therapy will help to “balance out” estrogen levels, and “also delivers ingredients to help support a reduction in PMS symptoms, help to increase mood, enhance skin appearance and elasticity, and support a healthy immune system.”
The product description also suggests that the product could aid weight loss indirectly by working “effectively with a woman’s body to restore the natural balance of the female endocrine system and reduce levels of hormones that can impede a woman’s ability to burn fat and build muscle”.
Because there are so many supposed benefits of Ripped Femme Estro Therapy, is it difficult to state in a simple yes/no answer whether the product does or does not work as claimed.
The manufacturers have heavily suggested that hormone imbalances could be a factor behind why some women struggle to lose weight, but this is a very indirect mechanism, and is difficult to prove. Even if Ripped Femme Estro Therapy regulated hormone levels, weight loss results might not be seen at all, especially if the consumer has not fixed their diet and exercise regimens.
The ingredients do appear to be useful for reducing period pain, cramps, and the symptoms of PMS. However, we could find only preliminary evidence at best that some ingredients could affect estrogen levels in a beneficial manner.
Without testing and supervision from a doctor, it could be quite difficult to establish how effective this product really is, especially as many of the benefits described are very subjective, and the product supposedly takes several months of continuous use to be effective.
The ingredients used in Ripped Femme Estro Therapy are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per serving of a single capsule. Consumers are instructed to take as many as three capsules per day.
There are some ingredients found in Ripped Femme Estro Therapy that could potentially cause some side effects.
St. John’s Wort is known to reduce the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill, as it increases the liver’s ability to break down the active ingredients found in the contraceptive pill. St. John’s Wort should not be taken by any woman who is taking the contraceptive pill. As it increases serotonin levels, and can be used to treat depression, it should not be combined with any other anti-depressant medications, in order to avoid side effects developing.
One of the main (traditional) uses for Chaste Tree was to reduce sexual desire and the consumer’s sex drive. Depending upon the individual, this could be quite a frustrating side effect.
Some of the ingredients found in Ripped Femme Estro Therapy appear to have little available research into the potential side effects that they could cause. As this supplement appears to affect hormone levels, primarily estrogen levels, caution should be taken. Readers should consult a doctor if they are concerned about their hormone levels, or if they are already receiving hormone therapies or treatments, before purchase!
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Not intended for use by persons under 18 years of age. Consult a physician before using this product if you have a medical condition, if you require surgery, or if you are taking any prescription or over-the-counter medication. Consult a physician before using this product if you are taking hormone-containing medications (e.g., progesterone preparations, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy). Do not exceed 3 capsules daily as larger amounts of St. John’s wort may contribute to photosensitizing reactions (skin reddening) in the presence of strong sunlight or tanning beds. St. John’s wort is known to interact with antidepressants, oral contraceptives, immune-suppressants, anticoagulants, anti-seizure medications, chemotherapeutic agents, and other prescription and over-the-counter medications. Not suitable for anyone who has a history of hormone related cancers such as ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, cervix or breast cancer.
We struggled to find customer reviews for Ripped Femme Estro Therapy online. We did locate four customer reviews for the product on amazon.ca, but, none of these reviews are verified purchases, and three of the four reviews were left on the same day. The fourth review was left just five days later. Most suspiciously of all, the same four people also left five star reviews for another of the company’s products, Ripped Femme Metabolism Support.
Whilst this does not always necessarily mean that these reviews are fake, these conditions, combined with the absence of any other reviews, often suggests that the reviews are fake or have been posted by the company themselves, just so that there are positive reviews. The reviews are also all vague about the benefits noticed by the consumers.
One of my daily essentials! It effectively balances my hormones, also helping clear my skin and strengthen my hair and nails!
AMAZING product! Really helped to balance my hormone levels!
I use this daily to help with my estrogen and hormone levels. It is the best product formula on the market for women of all ages and fitness levels!
Having a product made specifically to balance female hormones has made a huge difference in my life! I absolutely love this product and have recommended it to all my female personal training clients and family/friends!
Unfortunately, in this case, we can only conclude that the reviews found on amazon for this product are fake, and that the retailer (who may not be the manufacturers themselves) have turned to under-hand practices to boost sales.
The manufacturers do not sell the product directly and so they do not offer a money back guarantee.

The returns policies of other third party retailers may vary.
Ripped Femme Estro Therapy can be purchased from numerous websites, including from amazon and bodybuilding.com. However, it is not available directly from the manufacturer’s official website; the official website does feature a list of links to websites where the product can be purchased.
