Fennel Helps Alleviate Menopause Symptoms

Have you heard about the potential therapeutic effects of fennel? Research Shows Fennel Helps Alleviate Menopause Symptoms.

A study on 90 women experiencing menopausal symptoms which measured the benefits of fennel showed in just eight weeks positive results.

The study was a triple-blind trial, which means all details of the study are kept secret from the participants, those administering the intervention and the committee of researchers in charge of evaluating the results.

The study split the 90 women into two groups of 45, one group received the treatment, and the other group received a placebo.

The treatment group received 100-milligram capsules of fennel twice daily for eight weeks; the other group had a placebo.

Using the Menopause Rating Scale (MRS), the researchers compared the results of the treatment group with those of the placebo group at 4, 8, and 10-week intervals after the intervention began.

The study revealed significantly lower MRS scores in patients who had received the treatment compared with the placebo group. The results found that the fennel was “an effective and safe treatment to reduce menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women without serious side effects.”

Menopause Rating Scale measures the following:

  • Psychological symptoms: 4 symptoms: depressed, irritable, anxious, exhausted
  • Somato-vegetative symptoms: 4 symptoms: sweating/flush, cardiac complaints, sleeping disorders, joint & muscle complaints
  • Urogenital symptoms: 3 symptoms: sexual problems, urinary complaints, vaginal dryness
