Menopause and Insomnia: They Found Their Sleep Again!

Before, you would fall asleep quite easily and enjoy a good night’s rest. But lately, menopause with its hot flashes and night sweats has been disrupting your nights, causing nighttime awakenings and even repeated insomnia. Your sleep is much less restorative, and your daily life is affected (fatigue, irritability, anxiety…).

Many women in their forties and fifties find it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. It’s a well-known fact: insomnia and menopause are closely linked, due to the hormonal upheaval characteristic of this stage of life.

What can you do to sleep? How can you get back to sleep? How can you find restful sleep? All these questions express the same need: to regain restorative sleep and put an end to sleepless nights.

There are not only hormonal treatments to get through this period: we present 3 anti-insomnia solutions tested and approved by other women to help you find yours!

1. Herbatonin2 : to fall asleep quickly and end nighttime awakenings

Nicole : « Effective and without side effects. I recommend it. »

Marie-Claude : « Much more complete nights ! »

Menopause is marked by hormonal changes that impact, among other things, a very important hormone for sleep, melatonin. Produced by the pineal gland, it is responsible for synchronizing the sleep/wake cycle. In other words, it decides when you fall asleep.
The problem is that it tends to decrease with age, leading to sleep disturbances, fragmented nights, and even insomnia.

Good news: there are natural melatonin dietary supplements available.

Herbatonin2, natural melatonin of plant origin

Simply take one capsule per day 30 minutes before bedtime. You will be surprised by its effectiveness, confirmed by the latest research on the subject: you will fall asleep within thirty minutes after taking it, and since it is a natural supplement with extended release, its effects will last all night long! Say goodbye to nighttime awakenings.

  • Demonstrated efficacy starting from 1.90 mg of melatonin: each Herbatonin2 capsule contains 1.95 mg of melatonin and complies with French regulations.

  • Melatonin supplements are generally produced either from the pineal glands of cows or pigs, or synthetically, and usually from petrochemical products. In contrast to these practices, Herbatonin2 is a natural melatonin of plant origin, manufactured in France.

  • Exemplary composition: without chemicals, solvents, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, sucrose, yeast, dairy products, soy, wheat, corn, or gluten.

  • No habituation effects.

The problem with sleeping pills

Taken over too long periods, sleeping pills (Stilnox, Imovane, Xanax, Nuctalon….) can cause dependence. You may be tempted to increase the doses to maintain the effect, with the risk of becoming unable to do without them.

Herbatonin2 is not a sleeping pill. It is a healthy dietary supplement, without habituation effects.

2. Climsom cooling mattress topper: to sleep at the right temperature all night and reduce night sweats

Armelle : « I am menopausal, and despite hormonal treatment, I still sometimes experience nocturnal hot flashes that wake me up. Moreover, I have always liked to sleep in cool sheets. So, I tried Climsom, which I set at 24 degrees with a delayed trigger of 2 hours. Since then, I no longer have nocturnal awakenings, and I no longer search during the night for cool areas of my bed on the edges or at the ends. »

Ps: If you suffer from heavy legs, you will appreciate even more the vasoconstrictive effect of the cold to relieve venous insufficiency, as Bernard testifies, delighted that his wife has finally found the solution to better live through menopause:

« For several years, I was dismayed by my wife’s bad nights… Heavy legs, hot flashes due to menopause, she also said she was as tired when she woke up as when she went to bed.

So, I discovered Climsom simply by watching a morning TV show, and as I had tried almost everything, I decided without really believing in it, hoping at most for a little relief.

So, for the past two weeks, my wife has been sleeping on Climsom, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that her life has been transformed… No more hot flashes, finally rest and freshness, restful sleep. What a shame to have learned about the existence of this device so late! »

  • During the day, engage in physical activity (walking, cycling, gentle gymnastics…).
  • Allow at least 2 hours between dinner and bedtime.
  • Avoid foods rich in protein, high in fat, and stimulants (alcohol, coffee, tea…).
  • Prioritize foods rich in tryptophan, an amino acid precursor to serotonin and melatonin (without which the body cannot function properly): bananas, poultry, oats…
  • Establish a calming ritual before getting into bed: writing, reading, meditation, and why not an acupressure session. Not only does the acupressure mat aid in falling asleep by releasing accumulated tension, but it also relieves back pain and joint discomfort. Do this from your bed for about fifteen minutes, then drift into a peaceful sleep…
