2 of 5 | Black Cohosh for Hot Flashes
Once used by Native American women to smooth hormonal hiccups, black cohosh's roots are renowned for extinguishing hot flashes. A review published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that it eased hot flashes in three out of four trials. In one study, women saw their hot flashes plummet from an average of 4.9 a day to fewer than one. The herb doesn't stimulate growth in estrogen-sensitive tissues where dormant cancer cells may lurk, so it's safe for women who have had breast or ovarian cancer. The recommended dosage is 20 milligrams twice daily
