Botanicals Have No Effect On Hot Flashes or Cognition

A number of my blog readers have asked about black cohash and red clover as remedies for hot flashes....since I have never taken either, I had no first hand knowledge of whether they work or not. I just ran across this article from Red Orbit, and it discusses two studies done that indicate that botanicals such as black cohash and red clover do not have an effect on hot flashes or on cognition (brain function). Have a great weekend, everyone!
