What is the correct dose?
I have heard that Black Cohosh can help me through the menopause, but what is the correct daily dose? Products range from 8mg to 300mg tablets. Is there a definitive advise on this product?
Dr Currie from Menopausematters answers “The usual standard dose of Black Cohosh is 40mg daily. Unfortunately, there is hardly any scientific evidence available for the best dose, either for effectiveness or safety, and, as you will have discovered, different brands contain different amounts with little or no advice – it is a problem wand proper directions would be welcomed.”
Meno Herb has ben highlighted in a recent report on herbal treatments for menopause published in the Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin as an example of how all such products should be licenced and sold. it has been assessed for safety and quality by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and also contains an approved patient information leaflet. The report advised that patients should always try to identify and purchase a herbal product carrying a product licence number, or a traditional herbal remedy number on the product label, as MenoHerb does.
It is traditional herbal remedy used for the relief of symptoms of the menopause, containing Black Cohosh,and was mention numerous times in the report as a benchmark for such products.
Looking at your diet as a whole and changing a few things can also improve your menopause.
