Notes
grade-b - Very High See all 8 studies
While a small reduction for postmenopausal women has been found in some studies, this isn't reliable and more research is needed to determine its effects.
grade-b - Very High See all 6 studies
No significant influence on FSH seen with oral supplementation of red clover to postmenopausal women
grade-c Minor Very High See 2 studies
Not overly notable, but a decrease has reached statistical significance. The studies are only on men, and it's unclear what the effect might be for women.
