Did everyone sleep well? Are you holding onto your phone until dawn or killing time by flipping through meaningless home shopping channels? It’s not easy to spend a lonely night with your eyes open while everyone else is asleep. To add vitality to our lives, the most important thing is ‘sleep’. If you don’t get enough sleep on time, you can feel lethargic and depressed all day long, and your nerves can become sensitive, leading to frequent irritability and nervousness. If you or your mother or wife is experiencing these symptoms, please focus on this article!
Insomnia in middle-aged women is one of the representative symptoms of menopause, which occurs as women’s hormones decrease with age. If women’s hormones are not managed as soon as possible, not only insomnia but also various menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, muscle pain, and vaginal dryness can occur.
Do you think, “Oh, it couldn’t be menopause?” Then, trying the menopause sleep diagnosis test through the checklist below is also a way to check.
There are various ways to overcome menopause, and among them, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which directly administers female hormones into the body, has been confirmed to cause serious side effects such as breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke through long-term clinical trial studies. Therefore, the WHI has recommended against long-term use of HRT. As a result, health functional foods made from plant-based estrogens extracted from natural ingredients have gained attention. In Korea, there are currently 16 ingredients recognized for their menopause-improving functionality, including pomegranate, ginseng, magnolia bark, and Rubus root extract.
However, not all natural extracts are safe, even if they are extracted from natural sources. Some of them carry a risk of causing cancer in the breast and uterus. This is because they have a mechanism that stimulates estrogen receptors distributed in a woman’s breast and uterus. However, there is a menopause functional ingredient that has no side effects, and it is a complex extract including Yuhan baeksuo extract. Even though there was a fake Yuhan baeksuo incident, NewOrigin could not stop researching Yuhan baeksuo extract.
Complex extracts such as Baeksuo have not only been recognized by the Korea Food and Drug Administration as ingredients that can help women cope with menopause, but also are the only ingredient that poses no risk of causing women’s health problems such as uterine fibroids and breast cancer because they do not bind to estrogen receptors, which are sensitive to estrogen. Recently, a SCIE-grade paper introduced “complex extracts such as Baeksuo” as the only ingredient that does not pose a risk of women’s diseases, and it has been recognized for ingredient safety in seven countries worldwide, including the US FDA, Canadian Ministry of Health, and European Food Safety Authority.
It has been confirmed through clinical trials on middle-aged women that there are improvements in 10 Kupperman Index (KI) symptoms of menopause (hot flashes, paresthesia, insomnia, nervousness, depression, dizziness, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, vaginal dryness) when using the tested extract.
After six weeks of intake of the complex extract including Baksoohoh, 54% of the participants showed an improvement in the 10 items of Kupperman Index, and after 12 weeks, the number increased to 62%. This means that 6 out of 10 women experienced relief of their menopausal symptoms. Especially, it showed good effects on insomnia, hot flashes, and nervousness.
Just like starting the day off differently when you get a good night’s sleep, experiencing symptoms like nervousness, fatigue, dizziness, depression, and nerve sensitivity can naturally improve after getting enough sleep. Therefore, women experiencing menopausal symptoms have shown a high level of satisfaction with the improvement of insomnia, as getting a good night’s sleep can help alleviate these symptoms.
There’s a saying that goes, “If there are 100 women, there are 100 menopauses.” Menopause is an important time in a woman’s life, and there’s no need to be ashamed or try to bear it with force. It’s a natural phenomenon! We recommend overcoming it in the safest way possible.
