Pomegranate Seed Oil For Menopause No Better Than Placebo

Prescription strength progesterone cured my hot flashes in less than 3 days, so I have never tried pomegranate seed oil, but I know it's been touted as a non hormonal way of revlieving hot flashes. Check out this article from Medical News Today, a small study done in Vienna shows that the pomegranate seed oil pills were about as effective as placebos in alleviating the number of hot flashes per day. Most women tell me that the non hormonal remedies they have tried for hot flashes and/or night sweats simply don't work, and some have paid out a lot of money in vitamins and remedies that have little or no effect.
