Dear Red Hot Mamas Experts,

Are Siberian Rhubarb and Ashwagandha supplements useful for helping hot flashes?

Thank you,


Dear C,

These products are not considered part of conventional medicine. They have not had scientific studies to determine their safety or effectiveness. I would discuss these products with your clinician and don't believe just because you are able to buy them from a health food store that these two therapies are safe. They could have potential to produce negative side effects.

Good Health to You!
