Updated: Mar 17, 2022

Now since Menopause is here, and that too for a while. Let’s do everything in our power to make this work. Apart from exercise and lifestyle changes, a few natural herbs can help keep the common menopausal symptoms away.

Before I proceed, if you do choose any of these herbal supplements, it is always best to consult your healthcare provider. And now, here are 4 of my favorite herbs and supplements that are commonly used to manage menopause symptoms, plus the evidence behind them and relevant safety information.

1. Black cohosh (Remifemin)

Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa) is a flowering plant native to the eastern regions of North America. Long used in Native American herbal medicine to treat a variety of illnesses, it’s currently most often taken to alleviate night sweats and hot flashes associated with menopause and perimenopause

2. Red clover (Promensil)

Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is an herbaceous flowering plant in the legume family. These compounds function similarly to the hormone estrogen and may help alleviate symptoms associated with the decline in estrogen production that occurs with menopause.

3. Maca (Kiva Superfoods Maca)

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a Peruvian vegetable in the Brassica family, alongside broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. It has been used for centuries in traditional folk medicine to treat physical ailments, such as anemia, infertility, hormonal imbalance, and certain menopause symptoms like moodiness, and vaginal dryness.

4. Valerian (Calmvalera)

Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a flowering plant whose roots are used in a variety of herbal medicine practices to induce relaxation and a sense of calmness. Sometimes called “nature’s Valium”. Valerian is used to treating menopause symptoms like insomnia and hot flashes.

Whether you choose to pick a prescription medication or herbal supplement it's imperative that you get a doctor’s consultation first. Try it and only choose it if you can feel a difference in your symptoms, herbal supplements usually have no adverse effect and are safe. So Yoho! Let's go NATURAL!
