· Occurrence of Hot Flash: Estrogen is the hormone that directly effect’s the part of the brain known as hypothalamus. This part is responsible for controlling appetite, sleep cycles, sex hormones, and body temperature. Decline in estrogen confuses the brain into believing that the body is over-heated.

HOW DOES OUR PERFECT SLEEPWEAR TECNOLOGY WORK?
Cool-jams temperature regulating technology is a high-performance material originally developed by our Cool-jams product development team. It provides the technology of athletic wicking apparel with the softness of the finest sleepwear fabric. The fabric responds to changes in the body temperature while sleeping. Unlike traditional sleepwear fabric that traps heat, Cool-jams wicking fabric actually absorbs the excess body heat when the body becomes too warm, and releases it back when needed. At the same time any moisture is pulled away from the body, so that the wearer stays cooler and dryer while sleeping. The result: reduced overheating, sweating and chilling so the body is never too hot or not too cold….always just perfect!
