NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

This article focusses on the effects of a red clover extract (Promensil) for the treatment of menopausal hot flashes. The authors only examined clinical trials assessing the effects of 80 mg/d of Promensil, used alone, on vasomotor symptoms.

Among the 20 clinical trials identified, only 5 meet the inclusion criteria. The meta-analysis demonstrated a statistical and clinically relevant reduction in hot flush frequency in the active treatment group compared to placebo (mean difference between groups: 3.63 hot flashes per day, 95% CI: 2.70-4.56, p < 0.00001).

Red clover for menopausal symptoms: a systematic review and a meta-analysis.

Therefore, isoflavoes from red clover (Trifolium pratense) are effective for the management of vasomotor symptoms in post-menopausal symptoms.

The effective supplementation corresponds to 80 mg/d of extract for 3 months.
