Benefits of the Evercool Cooling Comforter for Menopause Hot Flashes
Millions of Women are Silently Dealing with Menopause Hot Flashes
It is projected by 2030 that there will be 47 million new entrants of menopausal or postmenopausal women each year, a total of 1.2 billion women! Yet menopause continues to be one of the most taboo topics around women’s health.
In a study of 110 women who all had experienced their last menstrual period within the last three years, the study showed:
- 94.5% had difficulty sleeping
- 92% felt forgetful
- 83% had hot flashes
- 87% experienced irritability
- 85.5% had night sweats
With difficulty sleeping, hot flashes and night sweats topping the list, it makes sense why the Evercool Cooling Comforter has been loved by women across the country. Here are top five benefits of the Evercool Comforter for menopause women.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Most research suggests that hot flashes occur when decreased estrogen levels cause your body's thermostat (hypothalamus) to become more sensitive to slight changes in body temperature. When the hypothalamus thinks your body is too warm, it starts a chain of events — a hot flash — to cool you down.”
As we sleep, our body temperatures drop. For a woman with menopause symptoms, sleeping in an environment that warms up the body too much may lead to the hypothalamus starting a chain of events that lead to a hot flash – ironically a process meant to cool you down. To prevent this from happening, maintaining a comfortable cool temperature is very important and is key to preventing future hot flashes and night sweats from being triggered.
This is where the Evercool Cooling Comforter’s innovative fabric helps. Designed for high performance athletes, the Evercool fabric absorbs and transfers heat extremely fast - faster than cotton, silk, or bamboo. This heat transfer creates one of the coolest to the touch fabrics on the market!
Prevents Heat Accumulation
It is important to not only feel cool at first touch but also moderate the temperature through the night to reduce chances of a changes in body temperature. The Evercool fabric ability to absorb and transfer heat while being very breathability, regulates your sleep environment temperature and gives you a constant coolness all night long. When you feel a little warm, just shift and find a new cool spot!
In fact, the Evercool fabric has one of the coolest fabrics on the market with a Qmax score of 0.36 making it:
- 3.3x cooler than cotton
- 2.4x cooler than bamboo
- 1.9x cooler than silk
- 1.7x cooler than Tencel
While we sleep, our bodies naturally give off moisture through our airways and through our skin. For those with night sweats, the amount of moisture can be large. After one night sweat, others can be triggered. Keeping the sleeping environment cool and dry becomes important to maintain a comfortable sleeping environment.
The Evercool fabric helps to remove moisture through the capillary affect. The ultra-fine fibers draw moisture from underneath the comforter to the top where the moisture evaporates into the ambient air. The absorption and quick evaporation of excess humidity helps to create an ideal environment for those with hot flashes and other hot sleepers.
As a bonus, this also makes laundry easier to do as the comforter dries faster than conventional comforters.
Ridiculously Soft and Smooth
The natural cooling properties are a result of material science. The Evercool fabric uses ultra-fine and high quality 1.1D microdenier nylon fiber that is around 1/90th the diameter of human hair. The thin fibers mimic silk protein resulting in a silky smooth and soft to the touch feeling. Being covered by the comforter is as smooth as in a milk bath. The soft to the touch feeling helps promote sleep hormones that get you to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Hypoallergenic and Chemical Free
Lastly for those with sensitive skin or allergies, no chemical or allergen additives are ever added to create the cool to the touch benefit. When selecting a cool to the touch comforter, be careful of products using nanoparticles and cooling additives to create the cool to the touch effect. Cooling additives can be washed off and it is not conclusive whether nanoparticles can also wash off or is absorbed by our bodies. The Evercool Cooling Comforter is a safer choice to avoid allergic reactions.
From being cool to the touch to ridiculously soft, the material science and innovation behind the Evercool Cooling Comforter is doing its part to help women with menopause symptoms get more nights of high-quality sleep. We hope you enjoy it and it works for you!
