At any one time, around 13 million women in the UK are experiencing the menopause or are peri-menopausal. With this comes a range of symptoms including extreme tiredness and weight gain. The most common symptoms, however, are night sweats and hot flashes. It’s likely most women will experience one or both at some point.
To reduce the symptoms, women can take HRT. However, for those who prefer a more natural approach to taking care of their bodies, there are other options.
Natural Menopause Treatments
There are a number of things a woman can do to naturally reduce night sweats and hot flashes, and possibly prevent them altogether. Certain foods, for example, can trigger hot flashes. These include spicy food, caffeine and alcohol; cigarettes are also a trigger. If women avoid these, these can help avoid hot flashes.
Wearing lightweight clothes made of natural fibres such as cotton will also help with symptoms, though they won’t prevent them. One of the best options, however, is using supplements such as Promensil Red Clover that help replace the oestrogen women lose during menopause.
The Benefits Of Red Clover
Red clover has been used in natural medicine for thousands of years to treat a range of illnesses including asthma, arthritis, and whooping cough as well as the menopause. It works well with menopause because of the high level of natural plant oestrogens (or isoflavones) it contains. As a result, research shows it can help increase good HDL cholesterol, improve bone density, and relieve hot flushes and night sweats.
Promensil Red Clover Products
Because red clover is so effective, Promensil uses it in their menopause support products. Each has a specific formula to meet a woman’s specific needs. In early menopause, for example, Promensil’s Double Strength tablets contain a starter dose of 80mg of red clover. This reduces to 40mg in their Post Menopause formula. However, additional calcium and vitamin D are added to reduce the risk of bone loss. To see the whole Promensil range, visit our shop today.
