The most common treatment to menopause is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). A common mistake of treating a woman with this therapy is that many times a physician will forget that these symptoms can be caused by a more common phenomenon, the simple age progression.
Making sure you are prepared before menopause hits is very important. Learning about the different nutrients found in foods help tremendously. Having a good vitamin intake, along with a healthy diet will give your body a chance to go through the change of life known as menopause.
Vitamins for menopause have many benefits. The number one benefit is the role they play in keeping healthy bone structure. Vitamin K is known for its properties of keeping bone density in check. Because estrogen levels drop with menopause, the Vitamin K function in the body drops as well.
Benefits of Vitamins B, C, and E can really help the body during the time of menopause. B vitamin is an active combat against stress and reduced energy levels. Vitamin E has been known to be an effective block against hot flashes, and it aids in vaginal dryness. Vitamin C has always been known for it properties of the immune system in fighting off colds, flu, but it is also know to help with hot flashes, and it gives back the elasticity of the skin. Because it hydrates the skin, it also helps with the problem of vaginal dryness.
By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and getting rid of habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and adding vitamins for menopause early will help your body transition from the child bearing years, to the years of menopause. Since there are so many different vitamins on the market it is important to research which of those vitamins will be absorbed and used by the body. Talking to your physician in the beginning stages of menopause will also help you find the correct vitamins your body needs to transition smoothly.
The Federal Trade Commission advises that while some vitamins are good for the body during menopause, they have also found that there are some that have no significant effect to the body. Make sure that you research the ingredients of the vitamins that you buy, and even those that are recommended by your physician to find out if there are any side effects or dangers in taking them.
Suggestions of use by doctors include: Soy, Wild Yam, Black Cohosh, and Calcium. Other products are on the market and have been widely suggested by physicians. Those include: Estro-balance, Meno-ease, Estroven, Non-GMO Isoflavones, to name a few. Make sure that when you are looking into these products, you are familiar with the ingredients and the effects they have on your body.
