Sleep Disruption During Menopause
Sleep is a basic need to allow our mind and body to recover. When we don’t have adequate rest, we debilitate the recuperation which can take a severe toll on our health over time. Science proves that chronic sleep deprivation drains your cognitive capacity and may leave you with a myriad of health problems, from weight gain to a lowered immune function.
The years of midlife transition come with a plethora of symptoms and according to scientific data up to 57% of women suffer from sleep disturbance during the perimenopause and menopause. Dr Kalentzi, who specialises in menopausal problems and is a member of the Sleep Council Advisory Board, affirms that in her experience up to 90% of women in the perimenopause and menopause have some degree of sleep disturbance.
Sleep Deprivation makes other menopause symptoms worse
Sleep disruption during menopause will make other menopausal symptoms much worse, especially temperature fluctuations, hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings. As a result of the hormonal changes experienced in menopause, many women also suffer from emotional alterations and extreme fatigue. Studies also reveal that depression was found more likely to occur in women who suffered with poor sleep during menopause.
Unfortunately, when you’re tired, low, and menopausal, it’s very easy to reach for carbohydrates, sugary snacks, and in some cases a glass of wine which may have short lived effects but over time will make you feel much worse. This is why more and women in the UK are turning to Biogenic ELLE CBD Oil as their go-to-daily supplement to help regulate sleeping patterns and put them in the right frame of mind to fall asleep naturally. ELLE also has a little extra oomph for women in menopause as it is fused with Clary Sage, a phytoestrogen which has been known to support temperature fluctuations and low mood.
CBD, A natural alternative to restore blissful balance
When you remain productive throughout the day, your brain receives signals that it has done a good job and it’s time to get some rest, so when you take CBD as a daily supplement it brings balance to the endocannabinoid system — which is heavily involved in the process of sleep and recovery. CBD produces different effects depending on the quality of the CBD and the dose — hence its biphasic nature. Biogenic Full Spectrum Premium Oils taken in lower doses may promote alertness, focus, and reduce tiredness throughout the day, whilst larger amounts may deliver sedative effects. So, if you want to optimize your inner clock during menopause, take a low dose of CBD in the morning up until the afternoon – and follow up with a larger dose in the evening, preferably 30–60 minutes before going to bed.
All Biogenic Full Spectrum CBD Oils support a healthier sleep wake cycle
CBD, in general promotes restful sleep, however all Biogenic Full Spectrum Oils are beneficial to women in menopause in particular as they are powered with added anti-inflammatory Ayurvedic ingredients and naturally occurring anti-anxiety and sedative terpenes that work in synergy to ensure you are absorbing even more of the CBD.
Our COA (Certificate Of Analysis) prove that our Full Spectrum high potency CBD Oils are expertly formulated with powerful terpenes like Caryophyllene, Linalool, Myrcene and the perfect balance of CBD, CBG, and CBN. It is this phytocannabinoid-terpenoid interaction which increases the therapeutic effects of our CBD Oils with respect to promoting deep relaxation, relief from muscle pain and a sense of calm to support falling asleep and staying asleep during menopause.
How much CBD Oil should I take for sleep?
Overall, improved sleep is typically the result of higher doses. Biogenic recommends increasing the dose to between 30 mg to 50mg per serving one hour before going to bed. When you place CBD oil under the tongue, it travels to the bloodstream through a tiny set of capillaries — avoiding the first-pass metabolism in the liver so you will feel the effects after 30 minutes with the calming effects lasting up to 6 hours.
CBD is best used as a natural sleep aid, along with other changes to diet and lifestyle — such as avoiding caffeine and alcohol, spending time to meditate or wind down before bed, exercising during the day, and taking measures to manage your stress levels. Together with these changes, CBD will provide the level of support you need to get optimal rest naturally.
I have been with menopause for the last year and a half. Had all the symptoms, specially sleep deprivation. CBD Oil ELLE has really helped me with that. Very deep sleep. I do encourage women with menopause to give it a try. Once you start using this CBD Oil ELLE, there is no other option. We all know that a good sleep is the answer for a healthy happy life. Well, still with a bit of mood swings……. but that’s always been me………
Highly recommended. I love this product range it tastes and smell delicious. The radiant glow face oil really does what it says and the revitalising body oil is very gentle and kind to the skin with its pure natural ingredients and no hidden nasties. I frequently take a few drops off the ELLE tincture and it helps me relax and sleep better as I battle with night sweats.
This is a highly informative and reassuring blog from someone who clearly has researched this topic deeply and perhaps has first hand experience of the debilitating symptoms of menopause. The way the product is describe would certainly entice me to purchase some particularly as I have had experience of using CBD oil before when I was suffering from shingles. I found the bath bombs to be hugely effective as well.
This is really interesting! I am learning so much from your blogs on menopause and how ELLE CBD oil can support my health and well-being.
Hi, just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blogs. As someone who has ‘made it through the other side’ of menopause I wish I had been given access to all of this information ten years ago. Women need to feel supported and seen at this momentous time in their lives and I applaud you for giving us all an insight into healthy alternatives to the ‘one size fits all’ prescriptive advice which was given to us. Thank you!!
Bought for the family and they are all fighting over it
