3 Daily Essentials During Menopause

Maintaining good health doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes, incorporating a few daily essentials into your routine can make a significant impact. Here are the top three daily essentials during menopause: Dandelion (Taraxacum Officinale) in homeopathic form or tincture, fish oils, and flaxseeds. Let’s explore the specific benefits of each and how they contribute to overall health and well-being.

 



Dandelion Tincture

When aiming to make small changes with a big impact, dandelion tincture is an excellent choice. This potent natural remedy supports the body’s detox pathways, particularly aiding kidney, liver, and gallbladder function. Dandelion neutralizes toxins and free radicals, protecting liver cells from damage. It also helps reduce inflammation, which is beneficial for those with inflammatory conditions like rheumatism and osteoarthritis. The liver is responsible for processing hormones like oestrogen so it’s hugely important to have a high functioning liver during menopause.

Fish Oils

Fish oils are renowned for their ability to support brain health and combat brain fog, thanks to their high content of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Studies show that consuming high ratios of DHA can help alleviate depression, mood swings, poor memory, and cognitive decline. Incorporating high-quality fish oils into your diet can be a game-changer for mental clarity and emotional stability.

Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are a powerhouse of nutrients and are particularly beneficial for women undergoing menopausal transitions. They contain phytoestrogenic agents, which mimic estrogen in the body, helping to raise estrogen levels and mitigate symptoms like hot flushes, fatigue, and mood changes. A 2013 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that plant lignans in flaxseeds significantly reduced the frequency of hot flushes in postmenopausal women, with even low doses resulting in a 44% decrease in hot flushes.

To reap the benefits, aim for around 40 grams of flaxseeds daily. You can easily incorporate ground flaxseeds into smoothies, porridge, yogurt, salads, or home baking.

By including these three daily essentials—dandelion tincture, good quality fish oils, and flaxseeds—in your routine, you can support your body’s detox pathways, enhance brain health, and manage menopausal symptoms more effectively. Small changes Daily can lead to significant improvements in your overall health and well-being.
