									      New Study Shows Magnesium Effective for Hot Flashes in
 A study from the Virginia University Health System has discovered that magnesium supplements can
            reduce hot flash frequency in women from 52 to 28 per week -- a 41% reduction

Glendale, CA, July 09, 2014 - The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) reports that an
estimated 6,000 US women reach menopause each day, which translates to over 2 million women
every year. The average age of natural menopause, which is the point of a woman's last menstrual
period, is 51. The Women's Health Initiative study, which followed 16,608 women being given
hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause symptoms, discovered a high risk of breast
cancer, coronary heart disease and stroke from the use of these drugs.

As a result, more and more women today are seeking the use of natural remedies for menopause
discomforts such as hot flashes, night sweats, migraine headaches, anxiety, fatigue, and

Mineral supplements such as magnesium and calcium have been found to be natural remedies for
hot flashes and night sweats. One recent example is a study from the Virginia Commonwealth
University Health System. Women with at least 14 hot flashes a week, received 400 milligrams of
magnesium oxide for 4 weeks, increasing to 800 milligrams per day if needed. At the end of the
study, the magnesium supplements had reduced their frequency of hot flashes from 52 to 28 per
week, which is a a 414% reduction. Fatigue, sweating, and distress were also significantly

The 29 participants in the study were breast cancer survivors, thus they were unable to take the
usual hot flash medications that have estrogenic activity such as hormone replacement drugs or
soy supplements. Many women, breast cancer survivors or not, prefer to take a non estrogen-
active natural remedy for hot flashes and night sweats, and the researchers in the study
concluded that magnesium appears to safely reduce hot flashes with few side effects and at
minimal cost.

Magnesium has also been found to help other health conditions. According to Dr. Michael T.
Murray, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, “In addition to helping with hot flashes, correction of low
magnesium status may have additional health benefits. Magnesium deficiency is extremely
common in Americans, and in addition to the well-known association between low magnesium and
increased risk for cardiovascular disease, low magnesium levels have also been linked to an
increase in Alzheimer’s disease, decreased muscle performance, insulin-resistance, and

incredible difference with my sleep. I have much less interruption from flashes, I’m sleeping much
better and I’m a lot more comfortable."

Valerie H. of Santa Clarita, California says: “I had such severe menopause insomnia it took me
hours to fall asleep even though I was extremely tired. My legs also had crawling and tingling

fall asleep now within 20 minutes and no more restless legs."
