The menopause is a journey that is for sure. I know it was for me, but thankfully, I am at the other side now and l feel great. Some of you will begin with perimenopause symptoms in your early thirties but for most women it could be in your late forties.
There are many symptoms associated with the perimenopause. You may experience just one symptom at a time or several together: hot flushes and night sweats. Anxiety, mood swings, sleep problems, low libido, or low energy. Anger, frustration, and irritability. You could have aches and pains in the joints and muscles. Your skin and hair can lack lustre. Bloating and constipation can be a problem too. Memory and cognitive problems are also possible. Vaginal dryness too, the list goes on.
Natural Remedies, a healthy diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction are all part of helping you deal with the symptoms. I took many different remedies on my journey to help deal with the various symptoms I went through. There are lots of new supplements on the market since then. I will talk about some of them next week.
A.Vogel Sage is possibly the most well-known supplement to relieve hot flushes and night sweats, it’s still the go to supplement for hot flushes today. Up to date research shows that Sage is also beneficial for cognitive function. It combines well with the A. Vogel Menopause Support Supplement to help with low energy and low mood.
For hormone balance, improved mood, energy, good skin, and intimate dryness, then Cleanmarine Menomin is a great place to start. I like it because it’s an all-in-one Omega 3, Phytonutrient and Vitamin Blend with Vitamins B1, B2, B6, to regulate hormonal activity. B12 to reduce tiredness and fatigue. As well as Soya Isoflavones, Folate and Biotin Plus, it contains Vitamin D to help maintain normal healthy bones. I get brilliant feedback about it. Comments I hear include: I just feel fantastic on it. My mood is brilliant. And, I can look at myself in the mirror again, my skin looks great. Most women love it, it’s worth taking a look at, see what you think. I will go through a couple of other supplements next week.
