Menopause, often termed the ‘change of life,’ is a natural part of ageing for women, marking the end of reproductive years. This transition comes with a myriad of symptoms, which may cause discomfort or concern. The good news is, for most women, these symptoms are not permanent and many women have very few or minor symptoms. In this blog, we’ll explore the relationship with gut health as it could be a key player in managing your symptoms better, as research is showing that what you eat may help you reduce your menopausal symptoms.

What are the Signs of Menopause?

The early signs of menopause can be subtle and might start appearing in the late 40s or early 50s. They include:

  • Irregular Periods: The frequency and regularity of periods may change.
  • Hot Flashes: Sudden feelings of warmth, usually in the face, neck, and chest.
  • Night Sweats: Severe hot flashes during the night.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
  • Mood Changes: Including irritability and depression.

Do the Symptoms of Menopause Go Away?

Yes, the symptoms of menopause tend to lessen or disappear over time and the severity and duration of symptoms vary significantly among women. However, it’s often the balance of gut health that could play a role in how women experience menopause symptoms. A well-nourished gut may help in managing hormonal fluctuations, which in turn, might alleviate some of your menopause symptoms.

The Relationship between your Gut and menopause symptoms

We’ve known for a while that there is a gut-brain axis and the gut and the brain talk to each other, and researchers are currently studying how probiotics can help with mental health problems like depression and anxiety, which are common during menopause. There’s also ongoing research looking at how lifestyle, hormones, metabolism, and health are all connected. This field of science is rapidly expanding and holds great promise, making it an exciting area of exploration.

Menopause symptoms and changes in hormone levels can also impact on any gut health issues you might have, like abdominal pain – a symptoms of IBS.

For all women, diet and lifestyle changes can help with symptoms. This can also include taking some targeted dietary supplement products. Your journey through menopause is a personal one. Understanding the connection between gut health and menopause symptoms could provide a pathway to better manage this natural transition.
