Here's a story that Sarah F. from Florida shared with us. It's super insightful and may help make menopause a little easier for all of us:
Since I was a child, I lived with my grandma. Just my mum, sister and her.
And as far as I remembered, grandma was healthy, slim and never broke a sweat even during steamy summers.
Not once did I hear complain about hot flashes, mood swings or bloating either.
Back in the 70s, there was barely talk about "falling estrogen levels" or managing menopause.
It was a hush-hush thing.
Today, menopause and its symptoms are no longer a taboo topic anymore, in fact, it's a whole movement on its own!
Women today aren't afraid to talk about it and share their experiences.
Why should we?
To me, it's all about understanding how our body works and managing the changes we experience.
Here are 5 tips grandma passed down to me that really helped when I was hitting the end of my 40's.
Probably the most underrated advice for hot flashes and weight gain is drinking enough water.
If your pee is yellow, you'd better drink up!
But it's not just the water you get from the tap...
If you really want to stay cool and slim, ALKALINE water helps manage and soothe inflammation.
Grandma used to have this weird tradition of adding baking soda to her water.
It always tasted bad and I hated it, but I didn't realize the benefits until I started on alkaline water myself.
My skin cleared up, joints stopped hurting and I didn’t wake up every 3 hours breaking into cold sweats.
My fondest memory of my grandmother was her munching on her pickles before dinner.
It was a religious event for her and I never once saw her go without having her pre-dinner, brined-in-a-glass jar-pickle.
Pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut, and kefir are rich in probiotics that introduce good bacteria in the gut.
This helps a lot with bloating, gas, indigestion and loose stools.
Especially useful for women under a lot of stress and anxiety.
She didn’t know it at the time, but grandma was onto something big.
Twice a week, we would have tempeh as a side dish for dinner.
It’s basically fermented tofu made of soybeans.
She had it when she went to Indonesia for holiday and got the entire family hooked when she came back.
Little did she know, tempeh was a dish that was rich in PHYTOESTROGENS - a natural precursor that encourages natural estrogen production in the body.
For those experiencing bad mood swings and lacking the drive to stay intimate in their relationships, phytoestrogens are a must for your diet.
Curcumin is also a popular phytoestrogen that nutritionists recommend.
And while grandma’s little habits had an amazingly positive impact on her health, we just didn’t think it was practical for ladies our age to lug around:
... In their handbags 😂
The good news is that we’ve created an all-natural probiotic that helps soothe inflammation, nourished the gut and contains a powerful phytoestrogen (moringa leaf).
If you know anyone who needs help with bloating, weight gain and hot flashes:
Provitalize Probiotics might be that natural solution they're looking for to manage menopausal symptoms!

Back then, because meat was expensive, we only got to eat them several times a month.
In order to have enough protein in the diet, grandma would make often lentil soups.
Lentil soups are a type of plant-based food called legumes and are among the best plant-based sources of protein. They are also highly nutritious, cheap and widely available.
Legumes are also a rich source of healthy fibers.
Besides supporting healthy digestion and regular bowel movement, these fibers often act as “prebiotic” or food for the good gut bacteria and probiotics.
Another side benefit of taking more prebiotics is it helps to reduce stress and support quality sleep at night. Great for menopausal women who need more help getting good sleep.
If you find it difficult to take more fiber and prebiotics, Previtalize can help :)
Speaking of good sleep, back in the day there was no social media, smartphones, and Netflix.
Once nighttime arrives, there wasn’t much else to do except late-night TV commercials and sleep.
So it’s common to get to bed by 10-11pm.
Whenever we visited Grandma, it can get really boring at night!
But the upside is we tend to get to bed earlier and have much more sleep.
Nowadays there are so many devices, games, apps, and TV shows keeping us up at night.
We tend to sleep much later than we should and end up getting less sleep than we need.
This is why having good sleep every day is especially important for menopausal women.
If you find it difficult to fall asleep or if hot flashes/night sweats keep you awake at night, you may want to give inergySLEEP a try.
Most of the time we already know that eating, drinking and sleeping right can do wonders to our health, weight, and lives.
But the lack of discipline and energy often prevent us from doing these things.
