This red clover isoflavone breast cancer safety study took place in the UK, and has implications for women worldwide. Over 400 healthy women with at least one first-degree relative with breast cancer were studied. The women received a standardized supplement of 40mg red clover isoflavones ( Promensil ) or placebo for three years in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Results showed that Promensil did not adversely affect breast density, skeletal strength, or cardiovascular status. In post-menopausal women, endometrial status was not adversely affected. The adverse event profile was similar between Promensil and placebo groups.
In October, 2006, Natrol acquired the licensing rights to market Promensil in the U.S. Promensil was developed by Novogen Limited, which launched the product in Australia in 1997. Today, Promensil has a global presence, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America.
Promensil is a vitamin and mineral supplement that is manufactured by the Novogen Corporation and is used to treat symptoms of menopause. Promensil is created out of isoflavones found in red clovers. Isoflavones are a class of organic compounds that act as both hormones and antioxidants when introduced to your body. Promensil combines the isoflavones extracted from red clover leaves with other vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and vitamin D-3, to create a supplement that may help relieve menopause symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats and anxiety. Several side effects of Promensil use have been reported. Consult your physician before using Promensil to treat menopausal symptoms.
Women may have trouble digesting some of the chemical compounds found inside the Promensil capsule, resulting in nausea, upset stomach and diarrhea. Women may have difficulty absorbing the active ingredients in Promensil, specifically the isoflavones extracted from red clovers. Certain women may also have difficulty absorbing calcium, which can increase the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. If you experience diarrhea while taking Promensil, consult your physician immediately.
