Abstract

The safety and efficacy of red clover for alleviating menopausal hot flushes are yet to be established. The aim of this meta-analysis was to generate evidence from published literature regarding red clover as a treatment option for menopausal hot flushes. The results showed that red clover when compared to placebo was effective in reducing menopausal hot flushes when administered for 3-4 months (MD = -1.34, 95 CI = -1.90 to -0.77, p <0.00001), but their effect did not persist at 12 months (MD = 0.89, 95 CI = -0.07 to 1.85, p = 0.07).
