Menopause is a natural transition that happens as a woman gradually stops menstruating – usually between the ages of 45-55. Over time, her ovaries gradually produce less oestrogen and progesterone. The lowered hormone levels are what cause the physical and emotional effects that are described as “menopause symptoms”.
Different women will experience very different symptoms, and some will experience no symptoms at all. Others may experience hot flushes, irritability, mood swings, low libido, fatigue and sleeping difficulties. Certain herbs and nutrients have been shown to help maintain temperature and mood balance, energy levels and healthy sleep patterns during menopause.
