Menopause Supplements to Boost Mood and Improve Sleep – Menopausal symptoms like mood swings and hot flushes are experienced by millions of women every day. Indeed, menopause indications can be so wide ranging that many don’t realise the list of symptoms can reach up to 62, according to a recent survey by Issviva a leading global hygiene and health company headquartered in Sweden.
The solution to unwanted symptoms? It is suggested that tailored menopause vitamins can help people going through the menopause.
Issviva, an online platform and community for peri and menopausal women, has developed a range of NEW supplements, specifically designed to alleviate menopausal symptoms like low mood and tiredness. The supplements contain a combination of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals.
“As a result of the hormonal changes experienced in menopause, many women suffer from low mood and fatigue”, says registerednutritional therapist Charlotte Hunter, who specialises in nutrition for menopausal women. “Fortunately, a healthy diet with good supplements can support the many metabolic pathways responsible for mental and physical well-being, especially when the body needs it the most.”
“Issviva has created something special with its range of supplements”, Charlotte continues. “Rather than a one size fits all menopause product, they focus on two specific areas: Mood and Energy and Sleep. This targeted approach means you can select the right solution for your menopause, whether that’s trouble sleeping or you’re feeling fatigued.”
Better moods ahead
Many menopausal symptoms – including mood changes – are caused by declining oestrogen levels, which can feel a bit like a constant state of PMS.
Irritability and feelings of sadness are very common symptoms of menopause. Meanwhile, anxiety can cause issues with sleep, which can reduce your daily energy levels.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that our bodies can’t produce”, explains Charlotte. “It’s well known for its antioxidant properties and immune boosting potential; however, it’s also vital for optimal energy production and a balanced nervous system. A deficiency in Vitamin A could reduce the body’s energy by around 30 percent, while B Vitamins are helpful when tackling stress and may boost brain chemistry by balancing our neurotransmitters. Like other water-soluble vitamins, we don’t store them, so you need a regular source in your diet. During stressful or uncertain times, like menopause, you might want to top up your levels with a supplement.”
Get energised with Issviva’s Mood & Energy Dailysupplement. Vitamins C, B1, B6, B12 and biotin, all found in the new supplement, contribute to normal psychological function and to normal functioning of the nervous system. Meanwhile, Vitamins C, B2, B6 and B12 contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue – all helping to boost the mind and body.
Take three gummies every morning to experience an increase in your daily energy.
Falling asleep just got easier
Struggling to sleep will be recognised by many going through the menopause as a frequent occurrence. Symptoms like anxiety and depression can make it hard to nod off, while hot flushes and night sweats can disrupt your sleep.
“Sleep disturbance is one of the most debilitating symptoms of menopause”, says Charlotte. “A few nutrients can aid a good night’s sleep alongside good hydration and a balanced diet that includes plenty of protein, fibre, and healthy fats. Ashwagandha has long been used as a remedy to promote ‘inner calm’. Taken in supplementary form, it encourages the body to adapt to emotional, physical, and environmental stressors. Studies have shown that ashwagandha may help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and achieve better quality sleep.”
“Next up, Chamomile is a traditional herb used to aid sleep. As a tea or supplement, chamomile may exert a sedative effect to help you sleep. Finally, B6 is big news in terms of sleep because synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, GABA, melatonin, serotonin, and noradrenalin are entirely dependent on the vitamin. Therefore, even a mild deficiency of B6 will reduce their production, leading to poor sleep, irritability, and stress.”
Issviva’s ZZZZs supplement helps you drift off, and, importantly, stay asleep. The sleep-inducing supplement contains ashwagandha which may help people to fall asleep faster, spend more time asleep, and experience better sleep quality; Vitamin B6 which contributes to normal psychological function and Vitamins B5 contributes to normal mental performance.
Two gummies every evening can help you sleep better.
Both supplements are lactose free, gluten free, free from artificial flavourings and free from preservatives.
