Q. I have to admit I was skeptical about Pycnogenol, but after about only four days of use, my severe hot flashes have completely disappeared. I take 50 mg in the morning and 50 mg in the evening.
I used to have a couple of hot flashes every hour around the clock. Since I have started taking Pycnogenol, I haven't had ONE. It feels like a miracle!
A. We have seen just one controlled study of this French pine bark extract for hot flashes (Acta Obstet. Gynecol. Scand. Aug, 2007). It looks promising, and we are pleased it helped you. Pycnogenol can be found on the Web or in health food stores.
