World Menopause Day

 

With World Menopause Day just around the corner on 18th October, the topic of menopause is again to the fore. We look at what menopause means to Irish women.

They all say life begins at 40. So why, you may wonder, do you just not feel yourself?

The perimenopause phase starts around 40 and can last anything from 5-10 years. During this time your body undergoes several hormonal changes which are responsible for the change in how you are feeling. Oestrogen levels start to fall as do progesterone levels and this can mean changes in your hair, skin, energy, sleep and hormones. This can continue for several months or years or vary from month to month; it can also be dependent on factors such as stress, sleep, exercise and your diet.

Most Irish women think feeling like this is normal and when life is busy it’s easy just to put it down to this but with the right diet and nutritional support you can help to manage the way you feel. In fact, a recent survey* with fans of Irish brand Cleanmarine MenoMin showed that 57% of the women who took part said they found menopause to be an empowering stage of life. And when asked how menopause affected their diet and exercise, 55% said it had a positive impact on their habits.
