Red clover (trifolium pratense) is a wild plant belonging to the legume family. Other legumes include chickpeas, soya beans, peas, beans and other pulses. Red clover is a perennial herb that commonly grows wild in meadows throughout Europe and Asia, and has also been naturalised to grow in North America. The red flowers at the end of the branched stems and also leaves are usually dried for therapeutic use.
Red clover is a perennial herb that commonly grows wild in meadows throughout Europe and Asia, and has now been naturalized to grow in North America. The red flowers at the end of the branched stems are usually dried for therapeutic use.
Modern scientific tests have shown that red clover contains isoflavones, plant based chemicals that produce oestrogen like effects in the body. Isoflavones have shown positive effect in targeting some signs associated with menopause, such as hot flushes, cardiovascular health, and bone health.
- Help general health and well-being during and after the menopause
- May help to maintain bone health
- May help to maintain cholesterol at a healthy level
Menoflavon is a dietary supplement based on red clover isoflavones specifically developed to help support wellbeing for women who choose to go through the menopause naturally. It contains a balanced source of the four isoflavones (genistein, daidzein, formononetin and biochanin A) that are important to health, particularly during and after the menopause.
Studies have shown that red clover isoflavones contained in Menoflavon may help to maintain good general health during the menopause as well as bone and cholesterol health.
Each tablet contains a standardised 40mg of four isoflavones: genistein, daidzein, formononetin and biochanin A sourced from red clover (Trifolium pratense). These red clover isoflavones are naturally occurring phytoestrogens or plant oestrogens which are NOT chemically synthesised.
Promensil is free from sugar, yeast, milk derivatives, wheat and corn starch, gluten, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours.
Take 1 to 2 Menoflavon tablets are taken daily with food. Usually 1 tablet per day suits most women either taken in the morning with breakfast or in the evening depending on when you feel it is most appropriate for you.
Some women find that taking 2 tablets a day is preferable so that the body has a top up of dietary isoflavones twice a day.
Antibiotics may disrupt your ‘friendly’ gut bacteria and hence reduce the absorption of isoflavones from the gut. There is the possibility that the absorption of isoflavones may also be reduced by certain stomach remedies, such as H2 antagonists and proton pump inhibitors.
Eating live yogurt or taking a daily probiotic tablet or drink with your Menoflavon tablet can help to re-establish a healthy level of gut bacteria and there may be an improvement in the gut absorption of isoflavones from Menoflavon.
Yes given that each tablet of Menoflavon contains 40mg or 80mg of isoflavones which is equivalent to consuming two or four legume-based meals in the diet every day. Around 40mg of isoflavones per day is the daily amount that men and women in Latin America and Asia are eating in their diet every day throughout life.
You should be able to assess the benefits of taking Menoflavon after the first 4 weeks. Thereafter, take Menoflavon daily to maintain benefits.
Not all red clover products are the same. Red clover blossoms contain little or no isoflavones, so products such as red clover tea or supplements based on red clover blossoms may not provide sufficient isoflavones.
The standardisation process used in the manufacture of Menoflavon ensures that each tablet in every pack supplies 40mg of isoflavones - the level that is consumed in a typical legume based diet eaten in Asia or Japan, for example. Menoflavon’s red clover extract contains a carefully balanced ratio of the individual isoflavones, to provide maximum support.
Red clover and soy are both legumes and belong to the same family of plants. The main difference is that red clover contains four active isoflavones whereas soy only has two. The extra two found in red clover are commonly found in other legumes such as chick peas and lentils.
Menoflavon is not recommended for use during pregnancy or lactation. It is not suitable for children.

Unlike human oestrogen, isoflavones do not bind to breast or endometrial tissue and studies show that supplementing diet with isoflavones does not have a negative effect on thickening of endometrial tissue or changes in breast tissue. We are not aware of any interactions with commonly taken prescription medications. Always consult your healthcare professional if you have any concerns of queries about using red clover.
