Zalestra is a weight loss product that is specifically aimed at menopausal and pre-menopausal women who, due to this time and change in their lives, have weight gain challenges. Zalestra is manufactured by Optimal Therapeutics. Those selling Zalestra say that it has been specially developed to help menopausal and pre-menopausal woman lose weight and that it will naturally support a women’s hormone balance. They claim that as well as helping you lose weight, Zalestra will also reduce the symptoms associate with menopause and that additional effect include alleviating hot flushes, mood swings and decreased energy.


The ingredients in Zalestra consist of Green Tea Extract, Guggul Extract, Octopalean, Maca Root Powder, Jojoba Meal Extract, Indole-3-Carbole, Borage Oil Powder, Mega Soy Extract, Manganese, Black Cohosh, DHEA, Vitex Fruit Extract and Bioperine.

Product Features

There is an official website for Zalestra and the product can be ordered directly online for a price of $49.85 for 90 capsules. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. Some of the ingredients in Zalestra are also commonly present in other weight loss supplements. Green Tea Extract, for example, which is present in Zalestra is now one of the most commonly used ingredients in weight loss products on the market today. A number of the other ingredients such as Black Cohosh and Maca Root Powder are substances that have been used for hundreds of years in traditional medicine to relieve the classic symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes and mood swings. Soy Extract, which is also one of the ingredients in Zalestra, is coming in for increasing criticism from diet experts as they say that the effect of Soy, if used on a long term basis, is actually to disrupt the hormonal balance of the body.

There is no doubt that the times of pre-menopause and menopause in a woman’s life are challenging times. Many women are distressed by symptoms such as weight gain and mood swings and are searching for solutions. Zalestra certainly does contain some ingredients that have been used in traditional medicine to help women during menopause. At the moment, however, we do not have any proof that Zalestra is superior to other weight loss products directed at women during this time in their lives.

    To whom it may concern

    I am 58 and a year ago diagnosed with multinodular goitre. I have gained 10 kgs since. Can I take ZALESTRA

    I am 53 y old and have been taking it for almost 7 years. I stopped twice and after 30 days I started having hot flashes. Three months ago I ordered too late and I had again hot flashes, and it took long to start cutting the hot flashes again. I was & am slim, but I also don’t think it helps weight loss; I didn’t feel any change in my appetite.

    I’ve been using Zalestra for only 5 days. so far so good. hot flashes reduced significantly, appetite reduced as a great deal. Feeling more energetic. hoping it will continue to improve and weight loss will come as i continue using.

    I am loving Zalestra, but need to know if I take more than the recommended dosage if it could help results, or hurt me in the long run?
