Herbal supplements/hair thinning

Keep reading about Macafem - has anyone used it and what did you think? I am having a few hot flushes but can handle them as I'm a cold morsel who likes to be warm smile. My main concern, and it's really freaking me out, is the state of my hair - it's really thinned out and seems to have started receding at the hairline. If the Macafem sorts out the hormonal imbalance, will that in turn bring my hair back to its former condition? Any advice much appreciated.

I wouldn't waste money on something sold over the web that supposedly has the same powers as licensed powerful drugs. If it was as good as oestrogen ( which is what helps keep hair thick and growing) then it would be a) available on the NHS and b) licensed as prescription only.

If you want to control your symptoms then is there any reason why you won't think about HRT?
