Info: 90 Capsules

For those who suffer symptoms of menopause, it can be a very trying time. Many women are prevented from participating in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as a treatment due to various health concerns, or simply do not want it. Black cohosh provides a good natural alternative, and a clinical study indicates it doesn't have estrogenic effects on the breast, so it's unlikely to increase the risk of breast cancer on that score.
