A large part of rebalancing your body for a healthier, and happier menopause means taking supplements for the nutrients that you are now deficient in. You can do a lot with nutrition, if you work with me I teach you that too, but there are so many areas in which you need to take the supplements to relieve the symptoms .
Some of these are affiliate links , these means I do earn a small commission but it doesn't cost you a penny extra, these companies are able to exist by word of mouth from people like me that know, use and love the products. The one's here are what I use, my clients use and I know to be effective.
I designed this Menopause Cooling Cream with over 2 years of testing. It relieves flushes and sweats, promotes a better nights sleep and eases anxiety & itchy skin, the feedback has been amazing!
I've put together a list from one supplier to give you the easiest start to midlife health supplements!
Probiotics for promoting gut health, if you are suffering with allergies and digestive issues, plus if your immunity is impaired, you have liver issues, want to sleep better or would like a supplement to boost your overall menopausal change these supplements have the greatest effect for my clients
Major symptoms in the menopause are anxiety, fatigue and liver associated symptoms like night sweats. These are 3 additional supplements you can add in if you have severe symptoms in these areas

Supplements are a mine field , where do you start if you don't have a clue?
I've put together all the starter supplements in one place, these will start relieving a swathe of symptoms plus build your energy back up:
Multi vitamin- women's health multi vitamin for the menopause transition, plus you require extra Magnesium. Take these 2 supplements anyway, you need them as you're deficient in these nutrients now. High in vitamin B complex for energy and hormone health balance.
Borage/Starflower - Essential fatty acids we can't produce (greater amounts than Evening Primrose)
Omega 3 (vegan) oils - If you don't eat oily fish twice a week (but I suggest you take anyway) and you have brain fog, overwhelm, achy joints and most menopause symptoms get onto your Omega 3 essential fatty acid.
Vitamin C + Bioflavonoids if you're experiencing Hot Flashes, but also helps to promote collagen growth (ie sagging skin) and support immunity.
Ashwaganda if you're anxious, tired but can't relax. Aids a better quality of sleep and calms your adrenal release.
Vitamin D - we can't get enough from the sun, along with Magnesium and Calcium help aid bone strength, also boost Lung strength and immunity.
Rhodiola - a real energy booster, can be taken alongside Ashwaganda, but only if advised.
Phyto-estrogens (soya isoflavones) only take if erractic/scant periods or finished and you have heat symptoms still.
