      Hi hun

      Vitamin E

      This is an important vitamin to consider at the menopause. Over many years clinical studies have shown its effect on reducing hot flushes. Vitamin E is also helpful for vaginal dryness and one study showed that just 400iu taken daily for between 1 and 4 months helped 50 percent of the women given supplemental vitamin E.

      Although most women fear breast cancer, our biggest killer is heart disease. There is now such a wealth of information on the beneficial effects of nutrition on heart disease and unfortunately HRT has been shown to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. A study published in the Lancet showed that 2000 patients with arteriosclerosis (fatty deposits in the arteries) had a 75 percent reduction in their risk of heart attack when given vitamin E. At the time, researchers claimed that vitamin E was even more effective than aspirin in reducing heart attacks

      Lots of changes take place in a woman’s body during menopause.

      Sudden drops in the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone result in the ending of menstrual cycles, and leads to changes in woman's physical and behavioral patterns. Women are more vulnerable to conditions like high blood cholesterol, depression, and muscle and joint pains.

      They also have increased risks of weight gain, diabetes and certain types of cancer.

      Because of these adverse effects of menopause, women beyond the age of reproduction years need to be much more attentive to their body’s welfare; taking supplementary nutrition, especially the B-vitamins, can effectively alleviate their post menopausal symptoms and protect women from heart diseases and cancer.

      The following are the 6 reasons why women should take 1 vitamin B-complex every day during menopause:

      look for a quality mega 100mg B complex that has at least 100mg of B6 in it.

      Jarrows B12 5000mcg Cherry Flavour ' red label' the best strength for menopausal symtoms and boosting energy ..

       B-Vitamins Prevent Weight Gain

      Women after menopause have significantly slower metabolic rates than younger women.

      All members of B class vitamins participate in cell metabolism and energy production.

      Increased intake of vitamin B's can improve the body’s ability to convert carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy, so that less is stored as fat.

       B-Vitamins Decrease Cancer Risks

      Menopause does not cause cancer.

      However, certain cancers, like breast cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer, are much more prevalent in women past their reproductive age. Vitamin B's are involved in the replication and synthesis of DNA and RNA. Sufficient intake of these vitamins can prevent cell mutation and protect women from these cancers.

      Vitamin B6 Prevents Cholesterol Coagulation and Maintains Blood Vessel Integrity

      Vitamin B6 controls homocysteine concentration in blood.

      Homocysteines are the “glue” that causes cholesterol to stick together and form plaque deposits.

      Increased intake of Vitamin B6 can reduce blood homocysteine level and prevent cholesterol coagulation and plaque formation.

      Taking an extra vitamin B6 significantly lowers women's blood vessels exposure to lesions and inflammations.

      menopausal women should consider at least 100mg of B6 daily
