But there is probably one symptom that most women globally would agree is the most frustrating, aggravating and embarrassing: hot flushes and night sweats. These are basically a hormonally driven rise in body temperature and connected to changes in oestrogen levels. The hot flushes are the result of a sudden resetting of the body’s thermostat. If your brain senses that your body is too hot for any reason, be it hot weather, spicy food, anxiety, stress, warm drinks, even low oestrogen levels, it immediately tries to cool off by sending the blood towards the surface of the body. The pituitary gland sends out a hormone (LH) causing the blood vessels near the skin’s surface to dilate and release heat through the skin. The resultant perspiration helps to cool the skin which can result in a clammy feeling. If you are damp and cold you may begin to shiver, and that is the hot flush and night sweat in action.
Numerous studies have been conducted on the frequency and intensity of hot flushes, with 48 being the average age of onset. In general, women who experience hot flushes start having them within one year before menopause and will continue having them for 1 – 6 years.
A. Vogel Hot Flush and Night Sweat Remedy (Sage 3400 mg) has been statistically proven to lower the intensity and number of hot flush and night sweats.
In addition to the number of daily hot flushes, their intensity also decreased, and this after just 8 weeks! These results confirmed that A.Vogel Hot Flush and Night Sweat Tablets are a safe and effective herbal approach for the treatment of hot flushes and excessive sweating in menopause.
Other points to remember:
- Drink plenty of water.
- Eat a healthy balanced diet and ensure your calcium intake is sufficient as bone thinning is another side effect of menopause.
- Get at least 30 minutes of exercise daily and try to include some weight bearing exercise.
- Cotton fabrics are particularly helpful in allowing adequate air to reach the skin.
- And last but not least, be kind and gentle with yourself. Your body is changing, support it.

A few months ago I started experiencing hot flushes and night sweats which is very uncomfortable.
When I came across your product on hot flushes, I decided to give it a try.
After about a week and a half, I noticed the difference, I felt a lot better, the intensity decreased and no night sweats.
Wow what a relief !!
I would definitely recommend this to those ladies out there.
