From the age of 40 a woman’s body will start preparing for the menopause. Put simply, the menopause is when women literally run out of eggs. From birth each woman has a supply of eggs and over the years they are used up and die off.
As the menopause happens, a woman’s hormone levels decline and their bodies move into a different stage in life. While this is a natural process, it can be quite taxing for the body, meaning you’ll need to prepare for some of the side effects.
Nourish wants to help you do this in the most natural way possible—from exercise and diet tips to a few supplements designed to give you an extra boost, so we’ve put together a blog series to help you figure out some of the ins and outs of supporting your body naturally during menopause.
What are the symptoms of menopause?
Menopausal symptoms vary from woman to woman, with some women experiencing them more than others.
Symptoms can include hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and anxiety, changes in weight, declining skin and hair health, declining libido, osteoporosis, lack of energy, joint pains, weight gain, headaches and vaginal dryness.
