Menopause, the journey! Last week I talked about symptoms of the perimenopause and promised that I would talk about supplements to help this week.
I mentioned Cleanmarine MenoMin as being a great place to start for both perimenopause and menopause. I like this supplement as it’s a unique combination to help regulate hormonal activity, and maintain normal mucous membranes, especially for those who suffer with vaginal dryness. It contains Omega 3, B vitamins, and soya isoflavones. As well as Vitamin D to help maintain normal healthy bones. Many women have told me that they simply feel fantastic and love MenoMin.
However, if your main symptoms are stress, irritability, or anger, as well as hot flushes you could consider Irish Botanica Menoflash. Many women tell me that they are shocked at the level of anger they experience, especially when it is directed towards their children. Menoflash contains a mix of herbs designed to help support adrenal function, and Vitamin B6 to support your nervous system, psychological function and regulate hormonal activity. This combination may also help with sleep. As we know, if we get a good night’s sleep it can help us to deal with anything. Several women have told me that they are surprised at how calm they feel, with less flushes, as well as improved sleep.
Norvia Menopause is a bit different, in the sense that it is a powdered vanilla flavoured nutritional shake, ideal if you can’t swallow tablets or pills. It’s suitable for all stages of the menopause. A perfect choice if you have a busy, demanding, and active lifestyle, perfect after a workout. It’s a rich source of plant-based protein, phospholipids, and fibre. It also contains B Vitamins, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K, Magnesium, Calcium and Soy Isoflavones, a nice combination of nutrients. Ideal for hormone balance, to support energy, immunity, heart health, mood, and bone health.
Gut health is important too, that’s one reason why Nutritional Therapist, Wendy’s go-to supplement is Revive Menoactive. It’s like a five in one, she says, a super supplement containing 31 nutrients. Supporting hormonal balance, mood, energy, bones, skin and hair, and digestion all in one.
