    Comprehensive information for Women in Menopause


    Musculoskeletal System


    During and after menopause, a woman's hormonal balance and
    biochemistry change. Lower estrogen levels may affect bone density.
    Phytonutrients and calcium are important to maintain healthy bones in
    postmenopausal women. Calcium and magnesium work together in the
    metabolism of bone.


    Heart and Circulation

    Menopause increases concern for the health of the heart and
    circulatory system. Soy isoflavones and other ingredients may also
    help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. To regulate homocysteine
    levels for cardiovascular health, vitamins B-6, B-12, and folic acid
    are critical.


    Hormonal Regulation

    Hot flashes are related to hormone levels. As estrogen declines, FSH
    and LH (follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones) increase,
    causing blood capillaries to dilate. This brings more blood and higher
    temperatures to the skin. Soy isoflavones and other herbs can mimic
    the effects of estrogen. Support for the adrenal glands is important
    since they account for most estrogen production after menopause.


    Liver Support

    Among its many functions, the liver has the important job of
    promoting hormonal balance by processing excess levels of hormones.
    The powerful antioxidant, N-acetyl cysteine, helps the liver detoxify
    chemicals.


    Antioxidant Defense

    Antioxidants help protect the circulatory system, which is important
    as estrogen declines. Antioxidants also defend tissues and cell
    membranes in all your body systems from free radicals, which are
    formed during normal cellular metabolism.


    Energy Generation

    The fatigue that is common during menopause makes nutritional
    support for energy and metabolism especially important. Metabolism can
    influence weight, energy levels, and mood.
