fennel reduces symptoms of menopause

This new study provides exciting news for women: there’s a new herb that can help get you through menopause. Actually, it’s not a new herb at all. But it’s new for menopause. This just published study found that fennel can help get you through the symptoms of menopause. . . .
The study was triple-blinded and included 90 postmenopausal women. Half the women got a placebo for 8 weeks while half the women took 100mg of fennel twice a day.

Though the women had the same severity of symptoms at the beginning of the study, at the end, the women on the fennel had a significant reduction in scores on the Menopause Rating Scale. They were already doing significantly better by the first time they were retested: week four. In the placebo group, on the other hand, there was no significant improvement. The difference between the ineffective placebo and the effective herb was significant at weeks 4, 8 and 10.

This exciting new study shows that women can take fennel to reduce their menopause symptoms without risk of side effects.
