Q & A
Health Q & A’s

Question: Both my girlfriend and I are going through menopause right now and while she seems to be handling it fine, I’m going crazy! My mood is so bad all the time and I get irritated by the slightest thing. Also, I’m feeling tired, headachy and get some really severe hot flashes. I’ve been asking around about the best non-prescription meds to take and they all seem pretty expensive. I’m on a tight budget. Would a cheaper brand like Estroven Extra would be just as effective?

Answer: When looking for any type of non-prescription meds it is always worth asking a health care practitioner for advice and also educating yourself in regards to the best, most effective ingredients to use. In the case of Estroven Extra, which is readily available at health and drug stores, even though it is reasonably priced ($19.99 for 28 capsules), it does contain some helpful ingredients designed to reduce menopausal symptoms. The major active ingredients in the proprietary blend are the clinically studied Black Cohosh and soy isoflavones, plant compounds which include genisten, particularly effective in decreasing the severity of hot flashes. In addition to these are other ingredients that benefit women of menopausal age (usually between 35-45 years old) such as calcium to maintain bone density, B vitamins to improve the mood and two blends of herbs for energy and calmness.

Although most women would prefer not to have to take anything at all, using a herbal preparation such as this can be a lot less risky that taking Hormone Replacement pills, which add synthetic estrogens to the system. However, because this brand also contains many other useful ingredients, it can be taken in addition to HRT if necessary. Even though the product itself is not known to cause side effects, it is recommended that you talk to your doctor first if you are currently taking another form of meds.

With the vast array of menopausal symptom relief products i.e. Estroven available today, many are quite effective in reducing those symptoms that plague women. It is important to use these products according to all the guidelines that come with the product in order to achieve maximum results.

You should research your product of choice prior to purchase to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.

Tips on Entering Smoothly into Menopause

  • Exercise regularly. It raises the metabolism, helps with depression and anxiety and controls weight. Any weight bearing exercise will help to maintain a healthy bone calcium content and reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • Eat a diet that is rich in vegetables, fruits and essential fatty acids. Cold water fish, including salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna and herring, are all good sources. Essential fatty acids help to support the nervous system which may be important for memory and brain function. Additionally they act as anti-inflammatories and maintain healthy skin. Try to include soy in the diet too as it supports estrogen regulation in the system.
  • Nuts and seeds should be added to the diet as a good source of fiber, protein and fatty acids. Flax seeds in particular are an important source of healthy anti-inflammatory fats that also regulate estrogen
  • Avoid high levels of sugar, alcohol, caffeine and over-processed foods. Quitting smoking will help reduce hot flashes and night sweats
  • Balance in the body helps to keep it healthy. Make sure to nurture your mind to keep it quick, your body to maintain physical well-being and your spiritual and emotional life to remain positive and healthy
