I think initially the black cohash was helpful, but as I got further into menopause, it didn't seem to help as much.

I started taking 540 mg. twice a day at the end of Nov. It is now the first week in Jan and I haven't had a hot flash in about a month. Prior to starting I was having 20-30 a day(not counting night sweats). They were even making me light headed and causing nausea. Not anymore. I love this stuff. Make sure it is natural not synthetic.
