Hot flashes may begin to occur around 45-50 years of age, or in conjunction with the first, sensitive, menstrual changes.

The reported symptoms consist in a feeling of warmth that branches off from the chest up to neck and face, resulting in profuse sweating (during a burst, the body temperature may rise, in a short time, from 28-30 degrees to about 34-35).

Choose the supplement that best suits you, among those containing plants that help you combat menopause symptoms.
