Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are caused by the hormonal changes of menopause. A diminished level of estrogen has a direct effect on the hypothalamus, the part of the brain responsible for controlling your appetite, sleep cycles, sex hormones, and body temperature. The drop in estrogen confuses the hypothalamus which triggers the hot flash as the body tries to adjust to the change.

Black Cohosh

Black cohosh offsets this decline in estrogen by providing powerful plant compounds called phytoestrogens that mimic the hormones effects. These phytoestrogens bind to hormone receptors in the uterus, breast, and other part of the body, lessening hot flashes, vaginal dryness, headache, dizziness, depressive mood, and other hormone related symptoms as a result.

Soy Isoflavones

Soy isoflavones are phytochemicals (naturally occurring plant chemicals) in soy products. Some isoflavones, such as genistein and daidzein, exert mild estrogenic effects and are thus called phytoestrogens. Structurally similiar to estrogen, soy isoflavones have the capacity to bind to empty estrogen receptors and relieve hormonally based symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes.
