In brief: Yes!

Studies indicate that the active ingredient in remifemin - black cohosh- can reduce hot flashes by up to 50%.
Remifemin is actually one of the best studied commercially available black cohosh remedies. This herbal med is safe for women who want or need to avoid estrogen- such as women who have had an estrogen dependent cancer.
