Hot flashes strike without a warning, starting as a rash of heat that races across your face, neck, and upper body. Your skin flushes. You sweat profusely. Your heart pounds.
Then, as quickly as it starts, it’s over and all that’s left is a feeling of anxiety. If you suffer from hot flashes, you’re not alone.
They are by far the most common symptom of menopause- affecting about 80% of all women. And their severity and frequency can vary greatly: some women experience 2 – 3 per day, while others may suffer 30 or more.
Menopause is a natural part of every woman’s life. It’s safe to say a woman is experiencing menopause when she has gone a full year without a menstrual period. For most women, this occurs around the age of 50. However, many will experience perimenopause, which means- “around menopause” as early as their mid-thirties.
Hot flashes are linked to hormonal fluctuations. Your hormones and body temperature are regulated by your hypothalamus, a small gland near the middle of the brain.
In essence, the hypothalamus acts as your body’s thermostat- it balances most functions of the body by sending and receiving signals. When a signal is received by the hypothalamus, it instructs particular glands (such as the adrenal glands and ovaries) to release hormones.
Once the body receives enough hormones, it sends a “stop” signal to the hypothalamus, which then instructs the gland to stop releasing hormones. However, as the hypothalamus ages and loses sensitivity, it receives fewer signals and sends out fewer messages for hormone production. In turn, glands such as the ovaries produce smaller amounts of hormones, causing hormonal imbalance.
Over time, the ovaries stop producing hormones completely, leading to menopause.
In the case of hot flashes, the impaired hypothalamus thinks that your body is too warm, when in fact your temperature is perfectly normal.
The hypothalamus tries to dissipate this nonexistent heat by dilating blood vessels at the skin’s surface. This creates the skin flush that marks the onset of a hot flash.
Menopause is not a disease, but a natural stage in the aging process. The symptoms of menopause are essentially signs of aging.
That’s why the only truly comprehensive way to treat menopause is through anti-aging: by reversing age-related changes that cause menopausal symptoms in the first place.
This is exactly what Amberen offers.
Amberen is the only product that rejuvenates function of the hypothalamus.
In clinical studies Amberen helped relieve hot flashes and night sweats, as well as other common symptoms of menopause without any known side effects.
