Fenugreek Extract Postmenopausal Symptoms Health Benefits

Study Finds Fenugreek Extract Helps Relieve Postmenopausal Symptoms

Fenugreek is an herb that is similar to clover. Fenugreek seeds smell and taste like  maple syrup. According to a new study, fenugreek extract may help alleviate some postmenopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats.

Forty-eight postmenopausal women participated in the study. They took 500 mg of a Fenugreek extract or a placebo daily for 42 days. Hormonal analysis was conducted at baseline and at the end of the study period. Participants filled out questionnaires regarding postmenopausal symptoms, including leg and body pain, hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.

Participants in the Fenugreek group saw a 2.9 times reduction in hot flashes, a 4.2 times reduction in night sweats, and a 7.2 times reduction in leg muscle and joint pain. They also saw significant improvements in vaginal dryness and irritability compared to the placebo group. Hormonal analysis showed a trend towards attaining hormonal balance in the Fenugreek group

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Agricultural Sciences Bangalore. It was published online ahead of print on July 9, 2020 in the journal PharmaNutrition.
