Menopause is a journey all women undergo and while it’s a shared experience so many can relate to, it doesn’t make it any easier or less challenging. When your body goes through menopause, a lot of things happen within your body. Firstly, your egg supply begins to decline in both number and quality. Your hormone production changes and you may begin to experience irregular menstrual cycles. About six months to a year before your periods end, your estrogen levels begin to drop and once it gets past a certain point, you no longer continue to menstruate. This, in a nutshell, is what happens during perimenopause and menopause, however, the symptoms we most associate with these cycles can continue into post-menopause, which is what many women struggle with as this time period can be months or even years. Menopause, from start to finish, often comes along with a variety of symptoms as your body copes with hormonal changes. These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and trouble sleeping.
Luckily, for easing these symptoms, OVitaminPro has a variety of natural supplements that can help you through the journey of menopause gently and naturally, keeping in mind Mother Nature’s own caring hand.
Black Cohosh: Derived from a species of buttercup, black cohosh has been shown to be effective in reducing hot flashes as well as reducing night sweats in the short-term. Some research also suggests it may lower blood pressure, which can aid in the treatment of mood swings. We offer several black cohosh supplements in our selection, including Integrative Therapeutics Black Cohosh.
D-Aspartic Acid: D-aspartic Acid is often associated with hormone levels, in that falling hormone levels usually indicate a decrease in this in the body. This amino acid works by stimulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis to normalize reproductive hormones. During menopause, estrogen levels in constant flux can be eased by taking a supplement with D-aspartic Acid, like FemFlavone, which may help with your symptoms.
Melatonin: Many women report sleepless nights or trouble sleeping while going through menopause, so a natural sleep aid can definitely help during the process. Melatonin is a natural way to help your body regulate its sleep cycles while ensuring a more restful sleep. Research shows that melatonin can assist women in menopause by helping them get better sleep and improve their overall mood.
