Red clover, alternatively known as Trifolium pretense, is an herb peculiar to Asia, Africa and Europe. The plant has been used for medicinal purposes for treating a range of issues from skin troubles, bone ailments to boosting immunity and curing hair woes. While alternative therapies like Ayurveda can go a long way in checking menopause and associated symptoms, making minor changes in regular diet may also help battle the condition better.
"Clinical studies have shown eating soy (the equivalent of 2/3 cups of soybeans daily) to be effective in relieving hot flashes and vaginal atrophy," notes Shilpa Arora ND, a renowned Health Practitioner, Nutritionist and certified Macrobiotic Health Coach. Regular consumption of food items coming from the cabbage family may also help a great deal; these would include cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, turnip, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts.
Another study conducted by the experts at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the US, linked regular vitamin D and calcium consumption with lowered risk of early menopause.
