In the review of a randomized, controlled trials of CAM therapies for menopausal
symptoms in order to better inform practice and guide future research, posted in PubMed, showed that soy seems to
have modest benefit for hot flashes, but studies are not conclusive.
Isoflavone preparations seem to be less effective than soy foods.
Black cohosh may be effective for menopausal symptoms, especially hot
flashes, but the lack of adequate long-term safety data (mainly on
estrogenic stimulation of the breast or endometrium) precludes
recommending long-term use. Single clinical trials have found that dong
quai, evening primrose oil, a Chinese herb mixture, vitamin E, and
acupuncture do not affect hot flashes; two trials have shown that red
clover has no benefit for treating hot flashes.
