Black Cohosh (Standardized)
Wish it worked for me
I've been looking for products ever since Estrotone went off the market. When my first alternative didn't work, I tried this in combination with Vitex. Within a few days, all my symptoms returned. I've given it several tries over a period of time, but always the same results.

I will always take this product to just generally help with women's health problems. The value of the swanson's product is amazing!

Wouldn't go without it
I just started using Black Cohosh two months ago and I would highly recommend it to anyone that has problems during their time of the month. I use to have really bad cramps and migraines and last month I had no migraines or cramps. This stuff is truly a miracle!

It does help with hot flashes but does not eliminate them completely.

In a Flash
My wife takes this twice a day. She is going through menopause. She thinks it has had some benefits and so continues to take it regularly.

Works for me!
I've been using the Black Cohosh for maybe a year and it really does help with my menopausal symptoms. I can tell when I have skipped a dose. Our bodies are all different and my symptoms without the supplements are pretty mild but are still uncomfortable. When I take two capsules twice a day I seldom have ANY symptoms.
I have also tried the "Hormone Essentials" and they did nothing for me. But again, each of our bodies will respond differently.

It has helped me greatly to keep heat flashes checked. Great product, great price.

A friend told me Black Cohosh would help reduce hot flashes. I just turned 58. Hasn't helped the hot flashes during the day but I have been sleeping like a bably since I started using this product.

I have been using this product for a year now and will NOT go without it. Ask my husband and he will tell you that this saved our marriage. Hormones can make you into a crazy person. But this gave me my sanity back. My night sweats ended as well. I combined it with Wild Yam Root, Chasteberry Fruit, and Dong Quai.

I have been buying this Black Cohosh for app. 1 year for hot flashes. At first it worked wonderfully, then I had to increase to 2x per day to get the same effect. It worked good until a few months ago so I switched once per day with another brand. Now I take one per day of this, and one per day of the other and its working again. Wierd. For now I'm good. Maybe it's just my body changing, but honestly it seemed to make a difference just changing it up a bit.

Great for us Baby Boomers
Women of a certain age - this product works well to control the uncomfortable temperture fluctuations our bodies experience. I feel taking the standardized 20 mg dosage distinguishs this from other slightly-less-expensive black cohosh capsules.

excellent product for me
I find this product very helpful to keep me on an even keel emotionally. My family and I really notice a difference if I happen to forget to take it or let myself run out of black cohosh.

Unfortunately, it didn't do the trick for me... I'm also taking Wild Yam and Evening Primrose also didn't work...

This herb is really great for women. It really helps to maintain hormonal balance.

THIS REALLY WORKS FOR ME
I am a very youthful 57. A few months ago, my body suddenly and abruplty went through some overdue midlife changes... EEEEEEEEK! I thought I was losing my mind!! My best-friend-hubby was definitely losing his, because almost every time I opened my mouth, something witchy would come out... which isn't like me!
I prefer to go the natural route, so I did some research and decided to try Black Cohosh. It makes a definite difference. However, for me, Black Cohosh alone isn't enough, so I also take Wild Yam in capsule form, and Evening Primrose Oil. (I tried a Soy Supplement, but that seemed to make my hot flashes and moodiness worse. I also tried Swanson's Menopause Essentials, and that didn't suit me, either.)
Today, 6 months after my menopause began, I feel normal again... and now, my best-friend-hubby is telling all his friends about how well these herbs work!

Unfortunately I discovered shortly after starting on Black Cohosh that I am not going to be able to take it. It cause me me severe gastrointestinal issues. Not worth it to continue for me.

Helps with hot flashes
I cannot be without black cohash. It helps me so much going through this time in my life. I could really tell the difference when I ran out of black cohash a few months ago. Believe me, I stocked up with a big order. Now I am back on track.
