Remifemin is made from a high potency, standardised extract of Black Cohosh. It has been clinicaly studied for over 50 years and has been proven to provide effective natural relief of:
– Hot Flushes
– Night Sweats
– Mild Anxiety
Remifemin provides time-tested, oestrogen free relief of the above symptoms, and for many women around the world is a saving grace during the difficult period of menopause that all women experience.
To many Remifemin is a natural and effective alternative to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), a process where doctors replace the diminishing levels of hormones inside your body. Although hormone replacement therapy is an effective way of treating menopausal symptoms, it comes with its own side effects and issues. These range from irregular bleeding, headaches and bloating to increased risk of cancer and stroke. For more information see the menopause treatments page.

Black Cohosh- safe use as a supplement
Black Cohosh is a herb used historically by native North Americans for a variety of medicinal purposes related to women’s reproductive health. Its use spread to Europe in the 1950’s and since then clinical trials in Germany have established its efficacy and safety as a herbal medicine.
The black cohosh plant (Actaea or Cimicifuga racemosa) contains active ingredients including phytoestrogens which are what gives it such medicinal value in treating menstrual and menopausal symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. As with any phytomedicinal preparation, adverse effects can be experienced in high doses, and effective dosage will vary with each individual. If you experience any adverse symptoms while taking a supplement the wise course of action is to stop the dosage for 3 days then reintroduce the supplement at a low dosage and monitor your body’s response, increasing the dose gradually if indicated. In this way you can find your minimum effective dosage. Consult a qualified medical herbalist for accurate prescribing of herbal medicines.
Using black cohosh may be contraindicated for anyone with a hormonally related cancerous condition. It is also contraindicated while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Take 1 tablet in the morning and 1 tablet in the evening, or as directed by your health care professional. Tablets to be taken with cold water, do not chew or suck. Remifemin can be started at any time during the menstrual cycle.
