There are 3 things that happen during menopause that make these symptoms seem inevitable:
Cause # 1. A drop in Oestrogen and Progesterone levels
oestrogen helps to regulate metabolism, weight and reduce inflammation.
Progesterone calms , supports good sleep and boosts thyroid hormone response.
During menopause, we tend to see a drop in hormones , which van lead to faster weight gain.
But I am amazing how the reduction in the level of oestrogen and progesterone in our bodies may also affect our joints, ligaments and tendons causing tension, swelling, stiffness and creaking.
This change may also wreak havoc with the body’s production of collagen. That’s a problem as collagen is rich in amino acids which play an important role in the building of joint cartilage. And let’s face it , makes us look younger.
Curcumin is a phytoestrogen (a plant source of estrogen) which helps menopausal women to rebalance their estrogen levels healthily and naturally.
Natural phytoestrogens like curcumin have been recommended for its ability to manage estrogen levels without other side effects.
It is also a natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory herb that supports weight control, digestion, joint pain & cools hot flushes .
Cause # 2. Inflammation
A drop in hormones can also cause higher inflammation levels.
High Inflammation levels can cause expanded fat cells, increased fat absorption and weight gain.
As time goes on, some women may also start to notice that they feel more aches and pains in areas like knees, shoulders, neck, elbows, or hands than they used to, causing discomfort and menopause-related arthritis.
Solution: PEA Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA)
Pea and strong anti-inflammatory benefits. PEA is a protective molecule produced by the human body and found in every healthy cell in the body. It is also found in animals, plants and is found in food such as meat, eggs, soybeans.
Cause # 3. Fatigue
During menopause, iron levels drop severely which can lead to anxiety, mood swings and brain fog.
A daily dose of iron in the body, reduce inflammation and helps women with low energy feel recharged in the morning.
Morninga Leaves are a wonderful herb rich in iron.
Cause # 4 : Bad gut bacteria
A drop in oestrogen levels during menopause can cause bad bacteria to grow quicker in the gut (which may also lead to gut inflammation and “leaky gut”)
This is why it’s common to have belly bloating, weight gain, constipated and other digestive issues during menopause.
Probiotics are great for strengthening the gut and populate it with good bacteria.
Pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut and kefir are rich in probiotics that introduce good bacteria in the gut.
There are also some unique probiotic strains — that have been studied to impact bloating and stubborn fat.
