Abstract:

The present research was undertaken to evaluate the effect of black soybean flour intervention on menopausal symptoms of postmenopausal women. It was an experimental design with pre and post observations including 46 postmenopausal women of 45-55 years. The women were selected as per inclusion criteria and randomly divided into 2 groups. The women in Experimental group A and B received 50 g/day of raw and germinated black soybean flour, respectively, for consecutive 90 days. Information regarding menopause was collected at the beginning of intervention period and 90 days after initiation of intervention using Menopause-Specific-Quality of Life Questionnaire. The dietary intervention significantly improved the symptoms related to vasomotor, psychological and physical domain but didn’t have any significant effect on the symptoms related to sexual and vaginal health domains. The study concludes that incorporation of black soybean flour in daily diet can improve complications of postmenopausal symptoms and improve the quality of life of women.
