Over 1.1 billion women in the world will be postmenopausal by 2025. Compare that to 477 million postmenopausal women in 1998.
Part of the reason why so many women are experiencing menopause symptoms is people are simply living longer than ever before. Another reason is more women are actually reporting their menopause symptoms.
In the past, menopause often went unreported, because it was misunderstood. In fact, many women believed that there was nothing they could do to alleviate their symptoms, which discouraged them to even mentioning it to their doctors.
However, as society has come to understand menopause better, more women know that they don’t have to suffer in silence. There are ways they can manage their menopause symptoms.
Yet, there is still a flurry of confusion surrounding ways to ease this transition. There are literally hundreds of products out there, claiming to provide relief, but which ones actually work?
Do you wake up in the middle of the night, soaked in sweat, trying desperately to escape the oppressive heat bearing down on you? You are not alone. Almost 80% of women going through menopause experience these hot flushes.
While hot flushes are caused by hormonal fluctuations, there are ways you can reduce the severity and frequency of these nightly interruptions. The best and most effective way is to swap out your tired, worn bedding for bamboo bedding.
Bamboo bedding helps reduce hot flushes, because the material is temperature regulating. Bamboo regulates your body temperature by wicking away excess heat and moisture. As a matter of fact, bamboo wicks away heat and moisture at twice the rate of cotton, reducing the humidity in your bed by 50%.
For those of you going through menopause, this means that when your hormones kick in and raise your body temperature, bamboo bedding compensates by venting off this extra heat and sweat. Since it keeps you cooler and drier, you won’t overheat when you sleep under bamboo bedding. If you don’t overheat, you’re less likely to wake from a hot flush, and you can finally sleep through the night.
