Herbal Supplements

The supplements talked about in this article are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals that can help ensure the body stays healthy; things like diet and exercise (and water intake and sleep) play a huge role in our overall health and wellbeing throughout menopause. Specifically, this research looked at Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and calcium all of which are beneficial for things like bone health, metabolic health, and heart health.

Some of the more unusual ones were PABA - a.k.a. paraminobenzoic acid, which helps energy and overall cellular health, bioflavonoids - which help with blood flow and inflammation, and, in spite of all the internet articles to the contrary, natural soy and flax, which help regulate estrogen.

Interestingly, they also looked at traditional herbal medicines such as wild yams, chaste tree berries, licorice, gentian root and black cohosh. They found that many of these contain compounds which can be beneficial for women in peri-menopause and beyond, though they all have different purposes, and many of these have not been clinically studied.
