The herbs used in Fem-Matrix have a long history of use for the prevention and treatment of menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms, mainly hot flashes. While Black Cohosh, Dong Quai, Chasteberry, Wild Yam, and Red Clover extracts have estrogen-like effects, Hesperidin and Quercetin reduce the loss of endogenous estrogen, which is associated with the symptoms.
