I have been used a standardized Black Cohosh supplement for about a year and a half (Remifemin). It worked very well to alleviate hot flashes, mood swings, etc. There became a problem with obtaining it in Canada as it was from made in Germany. It became available again through the U.S. but the price rose dramatically. I am now trying a product called NuFem which is half the price and from all I can tell has the exact 20 mg. standardized of Black Cohosh. It seems to let a few hot flashes slip through.
Has anyone been on this NuFem or Black Cohosh with good results too? I prefer natural products rather than HRT as I am hearing contradictory info. on estrogen replacement in the news later.
