Emerita's philosophy is to honor
women by regarding menopause as a time of strength, renewal and resurgence. Our
name Emerita is Latin for, "a woman who has served with honor." The Emerita
line, created by women and for women, offers distinctive products that offer
women natural solutions to menopause.
Emerita's commitment to honoring women by offering menopause
solutions goes beyond quality products.
Emerita honors women through financial support as well. Emerita donates money
each month to groups that champion the issues and causes about which women care
Our Commitment to Education
At Emerita, our philosophy of honoring women is threaded throughout our
programs, which include a free nationwide consumer lecture series. The lecture
series encompasses the biological, physiological and psychological changes a
woman undergoes during menopause and the role natural progesterone plays in the
female system. Presented by staff naturopathic physicians, our lectures create
an atmosphere of camaraderie where women can share experiences and ask the
questions they can't ask their doctors.
We also believe in hearing directly from our customers; from menopause-aged
women like you. Our Menopause Advisory Board is comprised of customers who give
us feedback on all of our work and let us know how to better serve the needs of

"bio-identical" progesterone. The title "USP Progesterone" differentiates

A stringent quality control process is followed for each production run. Quality
testing is completed for raw ingredients, packaging and finished goods and
