Core Tip Hormone replacement therapy usage by postmenopausal women with hot flushes causes concerns over possible increased risks particularly breast cancer. The improved longevity of women in general and breast cancer survivors in particular, and the limited success shown by the non-hormonal alternatives made it imperative to find a therapy that is effective and safe. It is hypothesized that folic acid supplementation may ameliorate hot flushes by the same mechanism as estrogen supplementation, i.e., by reducing noradrenaline and increasing serotonin neurotransmitters. This article discusses the rationale, potential role, mechanisms of action and safety issues related to its use in these women.
