5 Major Menopause Symptoms

Menopause.

For some women, this word signifies relief from the monthly menstrual cramps, the hassle of pads and PMS.

For many others, however - this signals a long, roller-coaster ride of hot flashes, weight gain, bloating, joint pain and chronic fatigue…

In this article, we will share:

  1. The science behind 5 major menopause symptoms
  2. The natural solutions to ease these symptoms

And it begins with...

Menopause Symptom #1: Hot Flashes

Did you know that more than 67% of women complain about hot flashes during menopause?

And hot flashes can also creep up on you at night in the form of night sweats.

The intensity and frequency of the hot flashes episodes differ from lady to lady - it might be very serious for some, while others might not get them at all.

Hot flashes occur due to an imbalance in our brain’s transmitters as we age. (1)

These transmitters manage the body’s internal thermostat.

And when they go haywire, it can cause hot flashes and chills.

This means that by targeting the brain transmitter’s imbalance, we can get relief from hot flashes.

Studies show that Curcumin manages various neurotransmitter levels in the brain…

AND is able to protect the brain from degenerating…

Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties! (2) 

This is why we’ve added Curcumin to Provitalize —  a “Hot Flashes Relief” solution that can help ease hot flashes, night sweats, as well as combating other Menopausal symptoms. 

 

Menopause Symptom #2: Weight Gain

Even ladies who have never had issues with their weight before menopause might have noticed that they are gaining some weight once menopause hits!

Studies indicate that the drastic decrease in estrogen levels during menopause may lower metabolic rate (3) -- the rate at which the body “burns” fat for energy.

Also, women tend to be more tired/lethargic during menopause (4) — this may influence frequency and intensity of exercise… which eventually leads to weight gain.

Whatever the case, menopausal weight gain make many ladies feel “terrible every single day”:

Thankfully, there is a natural solution to managing weight gain during menopause….

It’sProbiotics!

Everyone knows probiotics are good for digestion...

But did you know that certain probiotic strains may actually support reduction in unwanted weight gain during menopause?

L. Gasseri is a rare probiotic found in small amounts in fermented foods like Puba (a Brazilian staple)...

And a study of 210 people in Japan showed an average 8.5% positive impact on weight after 12 weeks of consuming L.Gasseri (5)...

The best part?

They didn't make any drastic changes to their lifestyles or diets.

From this, it seems that L.Gasseri may be the answer to support reduction in weight gain during menopause...

Which is why we've added it intoProvitalize - our leading probiotic supplement - which has helped thousands of ladies worldwide to keep unwanted weight gain at bay.

Menopause Symptom #3: Bloating

The third symptom that many ladies have noticed is a bulging pregnant-looking stomach caused by bloating.

Which, unfortunately, is quite common during perimenopause and menopause.

But why does it happen?

Studies suggest that falling levels of estrogen during menopause is the root cause of bloating.

Declining estrogen levels can affect the digestive process,  slowing everything down… and it can also affect carbohydrate metabolism - making it more difficult to digest starches and sugars… (6)

Which can often lead to long-term bloating for many ladies.

However, studies also point to a solution...

A study done on participants with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) found that there was reduced abdominal bloating after 4 weeks of treatment with a probiotic supplement containing B.Lactis. (7)

The findings were promising… which is why we added B.Lactis into our leading probiotic supplement, Provitalize.

So that ladies worldwide can enjoy a slimmer silhouette and the feeling of easily slipping into their pair of slim-fit jeans. :)

Menopause Symptom #4: Fatigue

Menopause can be quite draining.

There are some days where ladies  just want to crawl into bed at 7pm… No mood to do anything…

In fact, it can feel like you’ve been hit by a truck!

And it’s a very real problem.

Based on the Office on Women’s Health 2019 survey, 1 MILLION Americans grapple with chronic fatigue on a daily basis.

Most of them mention that they “honestly can’t remember what it’s like to feel energised and not tired”.

Thankfully, there’s a natural solution — called Cordyceps.

It’s been used since the 15th Century in traditional remedies to help fight off fatigue.

Now, athletes also take Cordyceps in order to improve their endurance and performance - they are able to perform at their best when they do not tire easily! (8)

That’s why we added this wonderful herb to inergyPLUS - our flagship “energy booster” product.

So that ladies can finally have the energy to do what they love with the people they love - even during menopause…

And that really warms our hearts :) 

Menopause Symptom #5: Joint Pain

As we age and enter menopause, our inflammation level increases. (9)

When levels increase beyond the “healthy” level and period of inflammation and hits chronic inflammation…

Body pain, especially in the joints sets in… 

But you might have noticed more symptoms - skin rashes, low energy, poor digestion like bloating, abdominal pain and constipation…

And if left unchecked, it can make day-to-day life quite frustrating.

For many women with these symptoms, they simply don’t know what to do.

So they just deal with it by…. well… not dealing with it.

If only they knew there’s a natural & highly-effective way to alleviate inflammation.

It’s called curcumin — the most active compound found within the turmeric root.

Rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, curcumin is a popular go-to option to fight inflammation and support healthy joints.

Research suggests curcumin works by reducing certain inflammation-promoting enzymes in the body. (10)

On top of that, it also helps reduce and neutralize free radicals (unstable particles which damage and destroy cells). (11)

Yes, curcumin is one of nature’s best remedies for inflammation.

Which is why we’ve added curcumin into Provitalize — our flagship probiotic supplement - so that women can effectively & naturally ease joint pain.

With relief from joint pain, these women can now go about their daily lives without any pain or hassle…

Just like how they did in their 20s :)
