How Does It Work?
Remifemin is a unique, proprietary, isopropanolic extract of black cohosh (Actaea racemosa; Cimicifuga racemosa) root and rhizome. The standardized black cohosh extract in Remifemin is backed by over 50 years of published clinical research. It is widely recommended by gynecologists as a safe and well-tolerated alternative to HRT for the management of menopausal symptoms.† Remifemin has been the subject of extensive clinical research and its efficacy in the management of menopausal symptoms has been established by several well-controlled clinical trials, as well as in open-label clinical studies.† Remifemin has been shown to safely and effectively reduce hot flashes, night sweats, related occasional sleeplessness, irritability, and mood swings associated with menopause.†
Several clinical studies indicate that black cohosh, specifically Remifemin menopause and perimenopause relief, may be as effective as HRT in reducing hot flashes, night sweats, related occasional sleeplessness, irritability, and mood swings associated with menopause.†1-8
There have been numerous controlled clinical trials of Remifemin. For example, in 2005, Osmers and colleagues conducted a randomized, multicenter, double-blind clinical trial comparing the efficacy and tolerability of Remifemin in the treatment of menopausal symptoms compared with placebo.9 A total of 304 women were randomly allocated to receive 20 mg of Remifemin or matching placebo twice daily (BID) for 12 weeks. The results showed that women in the Remifemin group experienced a significant decrease in hot flashes. No significant adverse effects were reported. This clinical trial is characteristic of the results obtained from many such studies on Remifemin, summarized below. No other form of black cohosh has this level of published clinical validation.
The following charts summarize findings in clinical studies of Remifemin:
