This is a friend's experience. It worked for her for years - much better than any hormone treatment. What burns my rear end is that this "Web MD" would try to deny the effectiveness of red clover. They want the lifetime membership to their drug of the month. Well, screw them, I saw this stuff work flawlessly, and had been for years. I wouldn't believe a word that is found at any site that is sponsored by the medical community.
I beg to differ that red clover is not effective against night sweats/hot flashes in menopause. It worked for me. After 2 weeks of useage, my nightsweats all but disappeared. After 6 months, I discontinued the treatment and the hot flashes/night sweats returned. I again starting taking red clover and the flashes disappeared. Red clover not only worked for me but for nearly every woman in my group of friends.
