How The Pod Smart Mattress Can Help Menopause Symptoms
Women have to deal with a range of symptoms during menopause, but by far the most common change is the on-set of hot flashes.
Up to 85% of women¹ report hot flashes during perimenopause, menopause, or postmenopause. The reason for this unpleasant symptom is because the changes in levels of estrogen and progesterone² in a woman's body affect temperature control and cause hot flashes and night sweats². This can lead women to wake up multiple times per night, affecting their quality of sleep, which can disrupt productivity and cause irritability during the day.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, 61% of post-menopausal³ women report insomnia symptoms. Sleep is absolutely vital to maintaining good, well rounded health, so preserving its quality is essential. Luckily, The Eight Sleep Pod mattress is helping women suffering from hot flashes find an active solution to stop their symptoms from impacting their sleep.
The Pod, which can be set as low as 55 degrees or as high as 110 degrees, is the only bed that uses water — rather than fans or cooling gel — to cool the surface of the bed and keep a person's body temperature low while they sleep. Most foam mattresses absorb and store heat so they get hotter throughout the night.
Women who experience hot flashes and sleep on the Pod have said that the Pod's thermal regulation keeps their body temperature down throughout multiple hot flashes a hot flash, and they don't wake up from it as a result.
They are able to sleep through the night, and feel the benefits of quality sleep during the day. Plus, if something does cause you to wake up, you have complete control of the temperature via the 8+ app, and can easily change it without having to get out of bed.
"After sleeping on the Pod for a week, I felt 10 years younger. I was getting so much better sleep than I was before when I was tossing and turning all the time. I went from feeling 46 to feeling 35 again."
The Pod's Smart Temp feature changes the temperature of the bed throughout the night so women going through hot flashes don't wake up when their body temperature changes. Once they set the Pod to their optimal sleeping temperature, the Pod's sensors track their body temperature and automatically adjust the bed to keep them at their optimal sleeping temperature.
If your hot flashes are affecting your partners' sleep also, then the The Pod's dual zone temperature feature will help you keep the peace. It allows partners to sleep at their individual optimal temperatures throughout the night without disturbing the other. The dual zone technology feature gives you both control over the temperature of your side of the bed.
If hot flashes have been causing disrupted sleep in your life, the Eight Sleep Pod is the only active cooling solution that can stop you from feeling the negative effects and improve your sleep. Eight Sleep offers a 100 day free trial so you can test out the Pod with zero risk and see the effects for yourself. Because better sleep means better everything.
