Supplements that are particularly useful for women going through the menopause can help protect against some of the dangers of oestrogen deficiency and help to relieve some of the more unpleasant symptoms. They include nutritional therapies, vitamins, essential fatty acids, minerals and amino acids.
If you want to protect against osteoporosis have a look for the special formulations for bones that contain calcium and vitamin D together with other minerals.
A good multivitamin supplement can also help to maintain healthy levels of all body nutrients to ensure that everything works as it should. Vitamin B6 has been recommended for women that had pre-menstrual syndrome and is also useful for women going through the menopause, remember that the two conditions are caused by the same hormone, oestrogen.
Essential fatty acids can be obtained from starflower and evening primrose oil supplements.
