Question, can herbal remedies help to reduce the symptoms of menopause? The answer thankfully women is yes. Probably the best known herb for reducing the severity of symptoms in menopause including night sweats and hot flashes, is black cohosh. Black cohosh is a North American herb, it's extensively well studied and we know that women who take black cohosh experience fewer symptoms of menopausal discomfort and sometimes are able to eliminate that discomfort altogether, red clover also is beneficial for some women, there are extracts and concetrates of red clover that can also help to reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms and the Peruvian herb Maca which is a root like herb, it's in the mustard family actually.

Maca is very, very effective for reducing night sweats and hot flashes. You can get Maca either in powder and put it into something like a blended drink and take it regularly. It has a good flavor, or you can get Maca concentrate supplements, capsules and tablets, taken daily no negative effects.
