When using menopausal supplement health supplements I find the herbal combinations in tablets and capsules better than vitamins and minerals combined in tablet form. However you need to give them 3 months to work. Women that have poor digestion and lack of good gut flora (too many antibiotics or stress) will find these supplements won't work because they lack acidophilus and bifidus bacteria in the gut. Take an acidophilus supplement or eat plenty of acidophilus yoghurt. These help to convert the herbal ingredients (red clover, soy or kudzu) into plant oestrogens that your body can use.
