Hello Customer!
Two of these would be best according to most studies as opposed to 81 mg if you have any risk factors. The phytoestrogens cannot really hurt, as for the studies with their benefits there are few well controlled but worth a shot!. Garlic and omega 3 fish oil can help also over the counter if you are not ready for prescriptions.
Good Luck
Hope this helps!
