Hot flashes are a common symptom during menopause and can be uncomfortable and disruptive. While there's no one-size-fits-all solution for managing hot flashes, there are some drinks that some women find helpful in reducing the frequency and severity of hot flashes:
Water: Staying hydrated is important for overall health and can also help manage hot flashes. Drinking a glass of cold water or sipping on water throughout the day can help cool down your body and reduce the intensity of hot flashes.
Herbal teas: Herbal teas, such as chamomile, mint, and black cohosh, have been used traditionally to manage hot flashes. These teas may help regulate the temperature of your body and promote relaxation, which can help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes.
Soy milk: Some studies have suggested that soy products, such as soy milk, may help manage hot flashes by reducing the levels of estrogen in the body.
Cold drinks: Drinking cold drinks, such as smoothies, slushies, or iced tea, can help cool down your body and reduce the intensity of hot flashes.
Infused water: Drinking infused water like adding cucumber slices, mint leaves, jeera and chia seeds in your water bottle and sipping throughout the day also helps to keep your body cool and hydrated
We also recommend lifestyle changes, such as keeping your environment cool, wearing loose clothing, and practising relaxation techniques, which can help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes.
