How you can improve your of perimenopause or menopause journey


Millions of women across the world enter perimenopause and menopause daily and each woman’s journey and experience is different and unique. Some women experience very little symptoms while others have extreme symptoms and require medications or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to help them feel better.


Regardless of your symptoms or experience, there are some foundational (e.g., supplements, diet & nutrition, selfcare rituals, daily essential oils protocol) things that you can do to enhance your journey. In this blog, I am providing a list of supplements that can help to support hormone balancing and alleviate certain symptoms.


Supplements/herbs that support Hormonal Balance


While food is the best way to get your nutrients, let's face it, living a fast paced world and most of us are always on the go, we often do not get all the nutrients we need from the foods we eat and therefore supplementation is a great compliment to good nutrition.


Vitamin C boosts progesterone in perimenopausal women and therefore helps to reduce symptoms. Recommended dosage: about 750 mg/daily.


Vitamin D3 is sometimes referred to as a hormone instead of a vitamin which helps to detoxify your liver and also increases dopamine and serotonin which helps to balance mood issues Recommended dosage: 2000 IU daily.


Vitamin E is shown to reduce hot flashes in several studies. Recommended dosage: 40-400 IU daily.


Magnesium is shown to boost energy, improve mood and reduce hot flashes. Recommended dosage: 300 mg daily. Sometimes the symptoms of magnesium deficiency are mistaken for PMS in the form of cramps, heavy flow, migraines.


Digestive Enzymes are similar to probiotics in that they keep your gut healthy, which helps to support your brain health and balance your hormones.


Probiotics balances the levels of microorganisms in the gut and reduces the numbers of harmful bacteria. They also seem to boost the body's immune system and help to balance hormones. Recommended dosage:10-25 billion colony forming units (CFU) daily.


DI-indolemethane or DIM shown in research to lower excess estrogen. It can be found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, brussels, etc. However, the best way to ensure that you are consuming an adequate amount, you can take it in a capsule. Recommended dosage:200mg/daily.
