ALL I CAN SAY IS INCREDIBLE! NEVER DID I THINK IT COULD TAKE AWAY MY SEVERE HOT FLASHES BUT IT TRULY DID! I HAVE NOT HAD A GOOD NIGHTS REST IN A LONG TIME. THE FIRST DAY I TRIED THIS STUFF IT WORKED! I TAKE TWO CAPSULES DURING THE DAY AND TWO CASULES IN THE EVENING. EACH CAPSULE IS 1000MG. ANYONE WHO IS READING THIS AND SUFFERING FROM HOT FLASHES NEEDS TO TRY IT. IT WAS MY LIFESAVER!

Was taking 2 every morning and still had the flashes, but they were much less severe and much less often. When my supply ran out, I decided to try a different herbal pill. The flashes are back with a vengeance! Just got more primrose today. Fingers crossed. It takes sever ... Show Full Comment
