Our menopause capsules can help protect your overall health and wellbeing during this difficult transition. As menopausal symptoms can cause discomfort and inconvenience your lifestyle, taking vitamins and supplements can help you navigate the changes and provide you with many different health benefits.
We understand that getting everything you need whilst navigating menopause can be difficult to keep track of. That’s why we have included everything we can into one capsule! Our menopause capsules include ingredients often used to help the menopause that might be able to get in a healthy diet. Below you will find all the ingredients in our menopause capsules:
Vitamin B6 is necessary to support a healthy metabolism, and immune function as well as help your body manage inflammation. Taking vitamin B6 at this time will help prevent menopausal symptoms such as depression and increase your levels of energy.
You can find Vitamin B6 in foods like salmon, chickpeas, tuna, pork and even bananas. If you are unable to get enough Vitamin B6 from your diet, it is widely available in the form of a supplement.
Vitamin B12 is required to help support the body’s natural ability to formulate red blood cells. This has key importance for increasing your energy levels, and protecting your cardiovascular and cognitive health. B vitamins also help with insomnia, and may even reduce the severity of hot flashes.
You can naturally find B12 in fortified cereals, low-fat milk, cheese and eggs. If you can’t get enough B12 through diet alone it’s easy to take it as a vitamin supplement.
Vitamin K2 is essential to maintaining your general health and wellbeing and is commonly known for helping heart health and improving bone health, reducing the risk of cell mutations and reducing infection rates. It also helps to improve the bonding of calcium to the body and the body’s natural ability to improve calcium absorption.
As our bone density declines as we get older, as well as in menopause, it may reduce the risk of bone fractures or breakages.
Zinc is excellent for menopause because it supports the production of estrogen which is responsible for regulating moods and emotions. It also helps to maintain a healthy immune system and supports skin health.
Magnesium is especially important for combatting osteoporosis and may also help with calming anxiety, easing joint pain, improving sleep, and easing hot flashes.
Sage helps to ease menopause symptoms by relieving stress, boosting mood and providing relief from hot flashes. It also contains compounds called flavonoids which have been shown to boost memory and concentration.
Various studies have shown that sage could be beneficial for reducing sweating and hot flashes which are linked to menopause. Sage may also improve your memory and cognition.
Panax Ginseng is a herb that has been used since ancient times for its restorative properties. It is believed to help relieve fatigue, boost immunity and aid digestion. People suggest you use Panax ginseng for menopause because of its positive effects on hormone balance.
Evening primrose oil has long been used to ease painful periods and other menopause-related symptoms. The main active ingredient in evening primrose oil is GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which is an omega 3 fatty acid.
Ginkgo biloba is another popular herb used to treat menopausal symptoms. It has been proven to improve memory and concentration, boost circulation and help prevent dementia.
Just like with medications herbal supplements can have some side effects. Always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements to help determine if they would suit your needs, or to make sure they won’t interact with any medication you are taking.
What is menopause?
Menopause happens when a woman no longer has periods. The reasons are varied; some women may have a sudden change while others will gradually notice their period stopping. Some do not feel any symptoms at the beginning stages of menopause, while it can seriously affect others.
This hormonal transition varies from person to person and women often experience it differently.
When does menopause start, and what is perimenopause?
The first signs of menopausal symptoms usually appear two to four years before the final menstrual period (FMP). The FMP becomes less predictable because ovulation ceases and menstruation stops. Menopause begins during the mid-40s, usually after 12 months without an FMP, but occasionally up to 15 years earlier.
Premenopause is the time before menopause starts. During perimenopause, estrogen levels generally start to decline but in an irregular fashion. The changes in estrogen levels can be determined through blood tests and may cause uncomfortable symptoms.
Signs and symptoms
You might start to feel signs of the menopausal transition in your daily life. Some people experience more than one sign or symptom associated with menopause. Menopausal women may experience some of or all of the following symptoms:
- Hot flashes – hot flashes last for only seconds and are triggered by physical activity.
- Heart palpitations- a racing heart, or chest tightness.
- Headaches – some women experience migraines.
- Mood swings – changes in mood and emotions.
- Weight gain – Consistent weight gain around the midsection, sometimes referred to as menopause belly.
- Low sex drive- linked to low libido and sexual dysfunction.
Many women find the symptoms of this transition to be very hard to deal with. They seek relief from symptoms by taking health supplements, some Chinese medicine and hormonal therapy such as the progestogen-only pill or HRT skin patches.
What are Menopause Supplements?
Menopause supplements are herbal supplements fortified with vitamins. They are designed so that in one daily dose you can feel secure in the fact that you are supporting your body with the extra nutrients you need. Supplements can help with supporting bone density, a healthy diet and even hormonal imbalance (when paired correctly with medication). Supplements are often used to improve the quality of life for menopausal women as the symptoms can impact their lives on a daily basis.
If you want to use supplements to ease your menopausal symptoms, make sure to speak to your doctor before taking supplements alongside medication.
Natural remedies for menopause
There are many approaches to treating symptoms of menopause. However, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) remains the main form of treatment for most cases. Some women find the idea of hormone therapy worrying and are concerned with unpleasant symptoms. A Hormone skin patch is one of the medical methods of easing menopause symptoms, other methods include estrogen pills or progesterone-only pills which help provide beneficial effects on your hormone levels.
Many women now choose to have a natural approach to their menopausal symptoms by taking herbal and natural supplements. There are many different natural remedies for menopausal symptoms including dietary changes, food supplements, lifestyle changes and alternative therapies. These are used singularly or together alongside medication. When combined with conventional treatments they provide added benefits over individual treatments alone.
