Studies related to women’s health and menopause

A number of studies have been carried out to assess effects of red clover supplementation in women going through menopause, namely effects on its symptoms. [5, 6, 7, 8].
 

Bone health

The bone preserving properties of Red clover have been examined in several randomized, placebo-controlled trials, demonstrating a positive effect of Red clover on bone mineral density as well as an increase in bone formation markers. [4].

Heart health

The vascular effects of Red clover as potential contributors to the heart protective properties were studied in two 12 week, double-blind, randomised trials on postmenopausal women. [1, 2].

A 12 week, double-blind, randomised, dose-escalating study was conducted to investigate the effects of two dose levels of the Red clover formulation (40 mg and 80 mg) versus placebo on arterial compliance. [3].
