Question

alternative

I would rather use alternatives for the symptoms of menopause. Can you advise on the safety and efficacy of policosanol,(for cholesterol) cinnamon extractfor sugar), black cohosh(for hot flushes)
To be honest I have used all three for a few years and I can' t say they help . My cholesterol is okay but I have constant hot flushes and my sugar goes high now and then.

As you say, I don't think that they are very effective.
