Nowadays, high medical-scientific standards in clinical studies with particular indications have proven efficacy and safety of phytomedicines. Extracts of Cimicifuga racemosa (black cohosh) and Hypericum perforatum (St. John's wort) have a historic reputation as herbal remedies. Clinical research with C. racemosa mono-preparations (i.e. Remifemin®) and with the herbal combination containing C. racemosa and H. perforatum (i.e. Remifemin® plus) in pre- and postmenopausal patients suffering from psychovegetative menopausal disorders shows a good therapeutic efficacy and safety profile finally resulting in a positive benefit-risk-ratio of these herbal preparations.
