5 Tips For Getting Through the Menopause

Hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, brittle bones, irritability and tiredness...These are just a few of the frustrating symptoms commonly experienced during the menopause. Below you’ll find some simple action steps that you can experiment with today to find relief:

  1. Get regular exercise. Physical activity will help support your energy levels, keep your metabolism high, and result in better sleep quality.
  2. Consume phytoestrogen-rich foods. These are naturally occurring plant compounds that can mimic estrogen in the body. Good sources include soy, flax, sesame seeds, and beans.
  3. Take a collagen supplement. Collagen supplementation may help to combat the loss of collagen that occurs in the menopause, supporting skin elasticity, bone density, hair health and more.
  4. Minimize sugar intake. Support healthy bones and blood sugar regulation by minimising sugar intake - instead, opting for more complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein.
  5. Increase Vitamin D & Calcium. Both micronutrients play an important role in supporting bone density. Dairy, sesame seeds, tofu, leafy greens, fish, and eggs are all great sources.
