Magnesium Supplement: Hot Flash Relief

Good news from researchers about reducing the symptoms of menopause, even if you’re a breast cancer survivor: Magnesium can reduce hot flashes caused by breast cancer drugs. A recent study published in Natural Standard shows that breast cancer patients taking magnesium supplements experienced fewer hot flashes per week than women not taking the supplement. Hot flash relief is here, ladies!

Women who survive breast cancer often experience hot flashes from the anti-estrogen treatment, tamoxifen (brand name Nolvadex). Aromatase inhibitors also cause severe hot flashes in breast cancer patients. In the study, 20 breast cancer patients experiencing at least 14 hot flashes per day were given magnesium oxide at 400 mg per day for 4 weeks, increasing to 800 mg a day if necessary (which it was in 17 of the 20 patients). The key findings of the study were that magnesium supplementation significantly reduced the frequency of hot flashes (a 41.4 percent reduction), and more than half of the patients studied had a reduction of more than 50 percent. There were also significant reductions in fatigue, sweating and distress.

Magnesium can be powerful for a lot of other health issues, too. Additional health benefits of magnesium include a reduction in cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, insulin resistance, osteoporosis, migraines, asthma and so much more (Find out more here!).
