Flaxseed Will Not Help Reduce Hot Flashes In Menopausal Women
A new study has found that using flaxseed to tame hot flashes in menopausal women doesn’t actually work.
A recently performed pilot experiment was what led many people in the health arena to believe that the flaxseed theory was true. Sandhya Pruthi from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota conducted a newer study with hopes that he would prove the theory true. But unfortunately, he did just the opposite.
In this experiment, 188 postmenopausal women were split into two groups. One group consumed a flaxseed bar every day for six weeks, while the other group ate a placebo protein bar over the same period of time.
The idea was to see if the flaxseed bar had any effect on the hot flashes these women experienced. But the researchers discovered that there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups of women, proving that consuming flaxseed will not actually help reduce hot flashes.
