Is it my hormones or is it warm in here?

Do you suffer from hot flushes or night sweats? 

Have you tried liquorice root to help the symptoms? (No, not the liquorice you get in the sweatshop!)

Many supermarkets are selling liquorice teas now. Teapigs do a very tasty liquorice and peppermint (I was lucky enough to try this at a friend’s this week as she had been given some free samples!)pennygetfit2 liquorice

Many women have told me over the last few years that they have been sprinkling flax seeds on their breakfast cereals to combat hot flushes.

But there is no research supporting flax seeds helping with heated moments. (Although they are good for increasing fibre intake so keep going with them if you are following this regime.)

There is supporting evidence towards licorice helping with hot flushes…so go buy some tea ladies if you are suffering.

But remember, the problem can also be exacerbated by too high a sugar intake in your diet.

So combine the liquorice tea with a lifestyle change towards sugar and you’ll be well on your way to combating those tropical moments.
