2. Vitamin B Complex
There is a total of eight B vitamins which are collectively known as vitamin B complex – these are B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12. They are all essential to the human body as they allow food to be more easily used as fuel to keep you energized. You may already be getting the required amount of B vitamins from your regular diet, but if you are not then it could cause an increase in the frequency and severity of hot flashes.
There are supplements available in capsule form which contain B vitamins, but as with any other supplements, you should talk to your doctor before you start taking them. In terms of real food, you can start eating more vegetables, whole grains, fruit, eggs, meat and fish, along with cheese, and some types of nuts such as peanut. Raising your intake of B vitamins should also help alleviate some of the other symptoms associated with menopause.
