iHerb Customer Reviews
I tried other brands of black cohosh and they gave me headaches and didn't help with hot flashes or night sweats. Taking this NOW Foods brand of Black Cohosh twice a day, along with Gamma Oryzanol (120 mg. 3 times a day) has made living through menopause bearable. I was ready to go on synthetic hormones until I found this combination. Painful and annoying hot flashes and feelings of inner tremors had literally hijacked my life. I got 3 hot flashes an hour before. As long as I take this combination of supplements 3 times a day, I can feel normal again. Taking either alone isn't as good as the combination. I'm so happy I don't have to take hormones and raise my risk for breast cancer now. Try the combination. It might take a few weeks before you see the results, but it works.
I need to take herbs to balance my hormones and this is doing it. I take a little extra when needed.
Helped with hot flushes
Posted by AIM-FOR-GOOD-HEALTH on Mar 15, 2016
Helped with hot flushes to a degree and for a period of time but then I got so bad with hot flushes nothing seemed to help. In the end I resolved my issue by addressing over-stressed adrenals (a common problem with menopause!) and took the herb Schizandra - miracle stuff. I am now cured of Chronic fatigue and insomnia and flushes are very manageable. In my experience it is critical to get to the root cause of your symptoms in order to succeed in aiming for good health. It pays to see a Naturopath or Herbalist for some advice, although in this case I worked it out for myself, the slow and painful way - 9 years of searching lead me to Schizandra, a major Chinese herb with wonderful benefits.

No effects felt

Bought this for my post-menopausal mother. She claims it did not help her with hormonal changes nor did it alleviate any hot flushes.
