Flaxseed May Help With Hot Flashes
New research from the U.S. suggests that flaxseed, a rich source of plant omega-3 and lignans, may reduce the frequency of hot flashes in women by almost 60 percent. The study, published in the summer of 2007, could offer an alternative for the reduction of menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes to more established dietary supplements like black cohosh or soy isoflavones.
