Dietary Supplement Study

Cincinnati—The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine is conducting a six-month study on the possible positive effects a dietary supplement can have on mood and memory in menopausal or postmenopausal women. The participants will receive a placebo or a dietary supplement called phytoestrogens, which are derived from soybean plants.

Women between the ages of 35 and 75 will be included in the study. Those experiencing menopausal transition must be between 35 and 50 years of age and having one or more of the following symptoms: irregular menstrual cycles, moodiness, irritability or depression, attention or memory changes, hot flashes, headaches or sexual changes. Postmenopausal participants must be between the ages of 45 and 75 and have not had a menstrual period in the last 12 months.

For more information about the study, contact Marcy at 558-2455.
