There are as many supplements on offer as shades of Hot Flush red, pink and crimson. It’s easy to be tempted by a little bottle of pills promising the end of your hot flush hell. Be advised that these contain phytoestrogens or have oestrogen like properties and shouldn’t be taken if you have hormone positive breast cancer. 

  • Black Cohosh 
  • Red Clover 
  • Agnus Castus 
  • Dong Quai 
  • Siberian Ginseng 
  • Evening Primrose Oil 

These supplements are not phytoestrogenic and are linked with reducing hot flushes:

  • Pine Bark Supplement 
  • Folic acid 
  • Vitamin C and E
  • Sage supplements 

There are specific menopause supplements such as A.Vogel’s Menopace. Independent herbalists like G Baldwin have a huge online range. Look for products carrying the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) symbol or product license number which means a product is made to good quality standards with appropriate labelling and a product information leaflet.
