Although the manufacturer of For Women Only claims the formula addresses the specific needs of women, it fails to argue why this product could not benefit men as well. There are some ingredients that provide particular benefits for women (PMS and menstrual relief, breast health support), among other positive implications on health.
Additionally,For Women Only features more than 30 ingredients in what seems a comprehensive and very complex formulation. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, enzymes and other nutrients are combined to ensure support for active women, however potential side effects are not mentioned by the manufacturer.
No consumer reviews are available online in order to validate the claimed benefits; therefore, For Women Only leaves us questioning its actual benefits. No doubt that it will help some consumers reach the advertised benefits, but to what degree and with what side effects (if any) we can’t be sure. For cautionary reasons, please refer to a healthcare provider before use.
