I have been using Menosmart Plus for a few months now and have had such great success with this formula that I am recomending it to everyone I know. My hot flashes have stopped, my mood has leveled out and I am sleeping so much better. Thank you, Lorna, for such a wonderful product.

I have recently started using Menosmart Plus and I can’t say enough about it. It has made life bearable again for me and for my husband. I have suggested this to anyone I know who is approaching or in menopause and, at my age, most of my friends are! This is an amazing product.

Here is the answer The formula containing black cohosh, don quai, gamma oryzanol, and hesperidin are the same for Menosmart plus as Menosense but Menosmart Plus also has additional sage to stop sweating. Both active ingredients are the same. It must have been a coincidence with something like increased stress or heat from the summer or some other reason why hot flashes continued. The formulas are the same and the suppliers that I purchase from are the same as the old suppliers. If anything 99% of women tell me the new formula works much better. Also Womensense is not my product so that health food store gave incorrect information. Thanks Lorna Lorna Vanderhaeghe, MS

Dong Quai is an effective treatment for the symptoms of menopause, especially hot flashes, as well as painful menstruation, lack of menstruation (spotting but no full blood flow), and will relieve too frequent menstruation (more than one menstrual cycle per month). In menstruating women it is also recommended for treating infertility.

Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) Extract 10:1 ..... 80 mg
(0.6% Acubine) Vitex, is effective in the balancing of hormones and has been traditionally used for the treatment of menstrual abnormalities, PMS, and menopausal complaints. It is especially important for women who are estrogen dominant with conditions including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, fibrocystic breasts and to improve the progesterone to estrogen ratio.

Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) Extract 1:1 .. 80 mg
(2mg of triterpene glycosides measured as 27-deoxyacteine) Black cohosh is the most researched herb for the treatment of the symptoms of menopause and replacement for standard hormone replacement therapy (estrogen and progestins).

Stop Hot Flashes and Night Sweats Naturally!
by Lorna Vanderhaeghe

Drug manufacturers of Premarin and Prempro have been told to put a strong warning on the label about the increased risk of cancer and heart disease. In July 2002 the Women's Health Initiative study, a clinical trial designed to determine if Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestins, was beneficial to healthy women, was halted due to serious safety concerns. This study involving 16,608 healthy, postmenopausal women concluded that the combination of estrogen and progestins caused a 41 percent increase in the risk of stroke, a 29 percent increase in the risk of heart attack, a doubled risk of blood clots, a 22 percent increase in cardiovascular disease and a 26 percent increase in the risk of invasive breast cancer. Now, caring physicians and hundreds of thousands of Canadian women are looking for alternatives to HRT.

What Do European Doctors Know that North American Docs Don't?
European doctors have been recommending herbal solutions to menopausal symptoms for decades and the research is very clear they are safer and just as effective in 80 percent of users. MENOSMART PLUS contains herbs that can halt hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, lower cholesterol, improve vaginal dryness and much more.

Black cohosh (1mg of triterpene glycosides measured as 27-deoxyacteine) is the most researched herb for the treatment of menopause symptoms and replacement for standard hormone replacement therapy (estrogen and progestins). Effective in the treatment of the following perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms: hot flashes, profuse perspiration, headaches, heart palpitations, depression, PMS, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), sleep disturbances, vaginal atrophy (thinning of the vagina causing painful intercourse), vaginal dryness, nervousness, irritability and loss of concentration. It was also researched in women with estrogen dominant breast cancer and found to be safe. Black cohosh works.

Chasteberry, commonly called Vitex, is effective at balancing hormones and has been traditionally used for the treatment of menstrual abnormalities, PMS, and menopausal complaints. It is especially important for women who are estrogen dominant with conditions including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, fibrocystic breasts and to improve the progesterone to estrogen ratio.

Dong Quai is an effective treatment for the symptoms of menopause, especially to reduce hot flashes, as well as painful menstruation, lack of menstruation (spotting but no full blood flow), and will relieve too frequent menstruation (more than one menstrual cycle per month). In menstruating women it is also recommended for treating infertility.

Gamma-oryzanol, isolated from rice bran oil, is used for the reduction of hot flashes and to improve mood. Not only is it a very effective substance for alleviating menopausal symptoms, but it also lowers triglycerides and total cholesterol thereby protecting our heart.

Hesperidin, a potent flavonoid, has been shown to aid the vascular system and capillaries thereby improving cardiovascular health, reducing night sweats, hot flashes and those annoying night time leg cramps. It has also been shown to reduce bruising.

Weaning off HRT slowly over an 8 week period while taking MENOSMART PLUS will ensure your symptoms don't return and aid an easy transition.

Black Cohosh Proven Safe

I receive dozens of questions per day about Black cohosh's safety and effectiveness for menopausal symptoms. Some new articles have been published that I feel you should read if you are taking or will be taking Black cohosh. Also on the home page of my website is a list of research papers that prove even further the safety of Black cohosh
. Several studies have been performed in women with estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer taking Tamoxifen (an estrogen-blocking drug) who were given double the dose of Black cohosh for one year with excellent results and safety.

Black Cohosh, a menopausal remedy, does NOT have estrogenic activity and does NOT promote breast cancer cell growth.

Black cohosh, a menopausal remedy, does not have estrogenic activity and does not promote breast cancer cell growth.

Black cohosh is an increasingly popular alternative to estrogen replacement therapy for the relief of menopausal symptoms, primarily hot flushes. However, an important consideration for long-term therapy is potential toxicity and carcinogenicity. Therefore, we undertook a study to assess the estrogenic activity of black cohosh to examine its safety for those with, or at high risk of developing, breast cancer. Several assays were utilized as listed: RNAse protection assays, which ascertain the regulation of the expression of E2-responsive genes; estrogen-responsive-element (ERE)-luciferase, which determines modulation of the ER function by transactivation of the ERE; the Ishikawa cell system, which has an E2-regulated endogenous alkaline phosphatase; and colony formation of ER-expressing breast cancer cells, which indicates possible progression of early stage breast cancer into a more aggressive state. Black cohosh extracts did not demonstrate estrogenic activity in any of these assay systems. This is an encouraging step in the assessment of the safety of black cohosh for treatment of menopausal hot flushes.



Lately there have been outstanding reviews of Black cohosh's safety and effectiveness. Pharmacists and medical doctors continue to provide out-dated information regarding this herb. I continue to get questions regarding liver toxicity with Black cohosh. This review of the safety and toxicity data makes the correct statement. "A few cases of hepatotoxicity have been reported, but a direct association with the ingestion of cimicifuga has not been demonstrated. The most recent data suggest that cimicifuga is not estrogenic." This is the latest evidence on this very safe herb.

Black cohosh: review of the clinical data for safety and efficacy in menopausal symptoms.

Since the publication of the results of the Women's Health Initiative that described the risks of hormone replacement therapy, many women are actively seeking alternative treatments for menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa, syn. Cimicifuga racemosa) is one such alternative that has been used in the US for over 100 years. To date only two cimicifuga extracts have been tested clinically, and the current recommended dosage is 40-80 mg/day. Review of the published clinical data suggests that cimicifuga may be useful for the treatment of menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, profuse sweating, insomnia, and anxiety. However, the methodology used in most of the trials is poor and further clinical assessment of cimicifuga is needed. In terms of safety, transient adverse events such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, mastalgia, and weight gain have been observed in clinical trials. A few cases of hepatotoxicity have been reported, but a direct association with the ingestion of cimicifuga has not been demonstrated. The most recent data suggest that cimicifuga is not estrogenic.




Maturitas is one of the most respected medical journals and this summer they published an excellent article about what doctors should be prescribing for menopausal symptoms.


Contemporary alternatives to plant estrogens for menopause.


Maturitas. 2006 Jul 31

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Medicine, National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, University of Illinois, 820 S. Wood Street (MC 808) Chicago, IL 60612, United States.

OBJECTIVES: Every year, millions of women begin the peri-menopause and may experience a number of symptoms related to this transition. Many women are reluctant to use exogenous hormone therapy for treatment of menopausal symptoms and are turning to botanical and dietary supplements (BDS) for relief. This paper reviews the literature on alternatives to plant estrogens for relief of menopausal symptoms.

METHODS: The MEDLINE database was searched for clinical trials of non-estrogenic plant extracts for menopausal symptoms. To be included, studies had to include peri- or postmenopausal women as subjects. All clinical trials (randomized-controlled trials, open trials, and comparison group studies) were included for this review.

RESULTS: Black cohosh appears to be one of the most effective botanicals for relief of vasomotor symptoms, while St. John's wort can improve mood disorders related to the menopausal transition. Many other botanicals have limited evidence to demonstrate safety and efficacy for relief of symptoms related to menopause.

CONCLUSIONS: A growing body of evidence suggests that some botanicals and dietary supplements could result in improved clinical outcomes. Health care providers should discuss these issues with their patients so they can assist them in managing these alternative therapies through an evidence-based approach.
