I’m an herbalist - and in this videonull I’m not talking about herbs AT ALL. Because while im not a big fan of supplements.. there are a few I feel are totally worth it and really important during menopause. To find out which ones made the cut.. just stick around.
HI IM Dana LaVoie, Acupuncturist, Herbalist, & founder of menopause basics - and in today i want to share with you the supplements I think are most important during menopause.
These are key building blocks your body needs to be able to navigate the hormonal changes while keeping symptoms to a minimum.
#1 Vitamin D. This “vitamin” is also a hormone! weird right?? But without enough vitamin D you’re prone to worsening hot flashes, nights sweats and insomnia in addition to being more likely to get colds and flus, more likely to get cancer, and much more likely to experience mood swings, anxiety or depression. I did a whole video on Vitamin D - so check that out for all the details on how much to take.
#2 Healthy fats including Omega 3s. Hormones are made of fats. During menopause your hormones are changing fast.. and your body is trying to keep up and keep things in balance. without enough healthy fats as building blocks.. there’s just not much chance of success. So oily fish like wild caught salmon, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, olive oil, nuts & seeds - and especially flax seeds - should be a regular part of your diet.. and if they’re not - consider an Omega 3 supplement.
#3 Minerals: Magnesium, Iodine, and Calcium. I think we need to supplement with the more than vitamins!! I could talk for a long time on the importance of each of thse.. and trace minerals like zinc and selenium are important too… consider a good multi mineral supplement or make sure you’re getting enough of all of these in your diet.
