Study Supports Fenugreek Extract’s Menopausal Benefits

menopauseA new study supports the ability of a standardized fenugreek extract (Trigonella foenum-graecum) to reduce hot flashes in postmenopausal women and aid in improving their quality of life.

88 women participated in this randomized, double-blinded placebo-controlled study.  Participants randomly were assigned to receive either a 1,000 mg dose of a fenugreek extract or a placebo daily.  The study lasted 90 days.  When compared to the placebo participants who received the fenugreek extract experienced a 57% reduction in night sweats, a 68% reduction in mood swings and 54% reduction in headaches.  Hot flashes were reduced from an average of 5 -7 times per day at baseline to 1 – 2 times daily at the end of the study period.  Additionally 32% of women in the fenugreek group reported no hot flashes at the end of the trial.

Researchers believe that the fenugreek extract increased estradiol levels in the group supplementing with this herb by 120%.  Estradiol is an estrogen that has been shown to play a key role in menopausal discomforts such as vaginal dryness, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, night sweats, insomnia and headaches.
