A multi-centre clinical trial assessed the tolerability and efficacy of Menopause tablets in menopausal women experiencing hot flashes. This 8-week clinical trial investigated the safety and efficacy of a holistically standardized fresh herb sage extract, in a once-daily dosage in women aged between 50 and 65 who had been menopausal for at least 6 months and were experiencing at least 5 hot flashes daily.
- After 4 weeks the average number of hot flashes had gone down by 50%
- After 8 weeks the average number of hot flashes had gone down by 64%
- The number of flashes was still decreasing during week 8, indicating that further reductions were most likely with continued treatment
The more intense the hot flashes, the better the results:
- Mild flashes were reduced by 46%
- Moderate flashes were reduced by 62%
- Severe flashes were reduced by 79%
- Very severe flashes were reduced by 100%
In the patient diaries, the average highest number of mild hot flashes at week 0 was 59 per day. This is more than one hot flash every half hour around the clock! After 8 weeks of therapy, the average highest number of mild hot flashes was 7.6 per day. Tolerability was rated as very good or good by 87.3% of the physicians as well as by 87.3% of the patients.
