Milk Thistle May Reduce Frequency and Severity of Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are a sudden feeling of heat, often accompanied by a red, flushed face and sweating.  More than two-thirds of women experience hot flashes while they are going through menopause. According to a new study, milk thistle may help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes in menopausal women.  

Participants in the study included 80 women who were going through menopause. They were given 400 mg of milk thistle or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Frequency and severity of hot flashes were evaluated at baseline and at the end of the study period using the Greene Climacteric Scale and the Hot Flash Related Daily Interference Scale. 

Participants in the milk thistle group saw a significant reduction in the frequency of hot flashes, going from 4.3 per day to 1.3 per day. They also saw significant reductions in the severity of hot flashes, going from 5.25 to 1.62. These results were significantly better than those seen in the placebo group. 

 The study was conducted by researchers from Babol University of Medical Sciences. It was published online ahead of print on August 6, 2020 in the journal Phytotherapy Research.
