If you're going to spend money on natural and herbal products, GYNOB.com recommends the herbal products provided by Clinician's Choice.  These are specifically formulated by doctors and scientists for maximum absorption.  For instance, many of the preparations are divided into AM and PM doses so that ingredients in one won't interfere with the absorption of ingredients in the other.  Additionally, these natural compositions are specifically designed to supplement each other (be combined), allowing more than one product to be used.

Clinician's Choice offers herbal supplements in the following areas:

Women's and Men's Multivitamins Menopause Symptoms Fatigue Weight Management Joint and Ligament Pain
Prenatal Vitamins PMS and PMDD Heart Health Depression and Moodiness Osteoporosis

The Clinician's Choice brand voluntarily submits to FDA scrutiny, a practice not mandatory nor typical of natural supplement suppliers.
