Customer reviewsGood Balanced Formula CAUTION with Estrogen-dependent Cancer
This is not a bad product. It has the recommended dose of Black Cohosh as used in research and clinical applications however, I personally would like a little higher amount of the Black Cohosh extract-or smaller amounts of the complementary herbs. Complementary herbs are Licorice and Angelica is small amounts. The Black Cohosh extract used in this formula is standardized to 5 Triterpene Glycosides. Clinical herbalists and historical use has found Black Cohosh and the complementary herbs used in this formula to help ease many symptoms of female hormone problems, such as PMS and menopause. However, a word of warning anyone that already has higher levels of estrogen, or has estrogen-sensitive or estrogen-driven cancer s , or who has a family history of estrogen-sensitive cancer s should NOT take Black Cohosh unless they are under careful care and monitoring of their physicians clinical herbalist, OBGyn, Oncologist, Functional Medicine Doctor, etc. It would be my suggestion that if you have any of the estrogen-driven types of cancer s stay away from Black Cohosh altogether. While studies are contradictory as to the estrogenic effect of Black Cohosh, there is plenty of evidence - both clinical and historical - to warrant caution.
