   A Healthy Diet Menopausal Women – How to Remain Ageless 

   Do you have difficulty sleeping, feel anxious for no reason, suffer from impatience, sudden hot flushes, night sweats or palpitations? If so then you could be experiencing menopause.

In biological terms, the changing secretion of hormones impacts the physical sexual characteristics and health of women. In other words, ageing not affects the body externally it also quietly removes hormones from the body, leading to less regular menstrual cycles and potentially uncomfortable physiological and psychological conditions, until menstruation stops permanently. This transitional period is known as “menopause.”
   Women tend to experience menopause at the age of 40-55. It is during this period that most have what are called “menopausal troubles,” which refers to sudden hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia, depression, emotional instability, poor memory, frequent mictruition, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness or itchiness and urinary tract infections. After menstruation stop the chance of women suffering from osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease also greatly increases. In this context, how to take care of oneself during menopause and after one’s menstruation cycle stops is of considerable importance to women. First, maintaining a balanced diet that includes the six main food groups is very important, particularly the 3 lows and 1 high (low fat, low salt, low sugar, high fiber). Every day one must consume sufficient fruit, vegetables and water, particularly berries such as cranberries. These are excellent for preventing urinary tract infections in women and if taken in conjunction with sufficient exercise allow one to generally feel more comfortable and less stressed. This also promotes the metabolism and also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

     In terms of diet, women experiencing menopause should consume more food with female sex hormones such as hashima. These contain a high level of female sex hormones are rich in nutrients and can be extremely helpful in treating hormone imbalance, which occurs when women lose hormones during menopause, thereby making the change a slightly less painful experience. Hashima is also an excellent beauty care product because it revitalizes cell tissue and promotes the metabolism of skin tissue, enabling skin to remain elastic and permanently youthful looking. At the same time, sources of vegetalitas such as soy products (soy milk, toufu etc), black soy beans, red beans, mung beans, oatmeal and yams, are also excellent sources of food and should be eaten in appropriate amounts as supplements, to replace the hormones women’s bodies are gradually losing. These can help to maintain the immune system, cardiovascular system and maintain bone health, providing clear physiological and psychological health benefits.
   Supplementary calcium is also essential, because once women enter menopause they lose calcium at an alarming rate. In addition, calcium settles the nerves and therefore helps to calm the anxiety that menopause causes in many women. To achieve that outcome, women should drink two 240cc cups of skimmed (low) fat milk a day or eat calcium-rich foods, such as pearl powder, dairy products, cheese, yoghurt, toufu, dried fish, whitebait, sesame etc. It is also a good idea to go for outdoor walks and take in the sun, so that synthetic “sunshine” vitamins can be synthesized in the body. One should also avoid tobacco, alcohol and consume caffeine drinks only in moderation to avoid them reducing calcium absorption. Finally, it is important to remember to always be happy if one wants to remain young, full of energy and beautiful.!
