Menopause is the period in a woman’s life characterized by glandular changes that involve the end of the menstrual cycle and her reproductive years.

Menopause is usually determined by decreased production of female sex hormones when the woman is between the ages of 42 and 52.
A poor diet, lack of exercise and stress can aggravate the symptoms and discomfort of menopause. Some women are affected by severe nervous symptoms and become irritable, excitable or depressed.

Vitamin E is particularly important during menopause. The B vitamins, in particular pantothenic acid and PA-BA, relieve nervous irritability. Vitamin C associated with bioflavonoids strengthens capillaries.

The calcium-phosphorus balance should be carefully maintained during the years of maturity and an increase in protein and a reduction in carbohydrates is also recommended.

An adequate intake of vitamin D, iron and magnesium is also important.
