Getting through the menopause is often a relief because for many women it's a difficult time, if not a nightmare. Hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes, bone health and heart health, and disturbed sleep. Every woman experiences the menopause differently but most women greet its cessation with relief. However, that isn't usually the end, there's the aftercare to follow!
During the menopause physical changes will have taken place in a woman's body. For instance, the skin becomes thinner. The lack of oestrogen often means vaginal glands don't lubricate as well and this can cause discomfort during sex. As a result the idea of sex may be off-putting. Other concerns with falling oestrogen levels is the unfavourable changes in cholesterol and fat levels in the blood, which may lead to problems in those areas. As oestrogen levels drop, some women, particularly inactive ones, tend to lose bone mass and strength.
It is therefore important to consider taking a good, no, an excellent multivitamin which will provide many of the missing nutrients the changing body needs, one such as Solgar's VM Prime For Women.
The best multivitamin?
Solgar VM-Prime™ for Women is a unique among multivitamins, it's formulated especially for menopausal and post-menopausal women and it is rich in essential nutrients for healthy, strong bones. This multivitamin is helpful to control hot flushes and night sweats and promotes heart health. It's really quite complete and extraordinary in the quality of the ingredients it uses.
Solgar tells us that, "VM Prime For Women is an advanced multiple nutrient formula that is tailored to help address the specific needs of women going through the menopausal transition. Of particular concern to menopausal women is the management of symptoms, bone support and cardiovascular health."
The formulation includes calcium and magnesium, as citrates, which ensures ease of absorption, together with Vitamins D3 and K2. Recent research has highlighted the importance of Vitamin K2 which helps to promote the incorporation of calcium into the bone matrix.
Vitamin D3 helps the uptake of calcium from the digestive system and promotes the transportation of calcium into bones.
Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid help to lower homocysteine levels thereby supporting cardiovascular health as well as offering possible protection against neurodegenerative diseases.
VM Prime For Women also provides soy isoflavones to further support bone health as well as aiding to lessen menopausal concerns such as hot flushes. The addition of 400iu of Vitamin E further supports the management of menopausal symptoms.
Once menstruation ceases, a woman's need for iron diminishes; therefore this supplement is iron-free.
