Ayurvedic Ingredients May Ease Menopause Symptoms

Many women going through menopause experience symptoms that interrupt their lives significantly. A recent study suggests that a supplement containing four Ayurvedic ingredients, Ashwaganhda extract, Shatavari, Guggl, and Guduchi, may help ease menopause symptoms.


Participants in the study included 117 women age 40 to 65. Over the course of 12 weeks, the women took either the supplement or a placebo. They also filled out the Menopause-Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (MNQOL), which was self-administered. The questionnaire contains 29 items and measures changes in psychosocial, vasomotor, physical, and sexual areas.


At the conclusion of the study, particiapnts in the supplement group noted a 26.5% improvement in the MNQOL score, compared to a 2.3% increase in the placebo group. Participants in the supplement group also noted fewer feelings of depression, the ability to accomplish more tasks, fewer backaches, fewer hot flashes, and fewer headaches. Finally, they noted improvements in vaginal dryness and avoidance of intimacy.


Researchers from Integrated Health Group and The University of Sydney, both in Australia, led the study. It was published in the March 2018 issue of the Journal of Herbal Medicine.
