Diet for menopause

Menopause is the period that marks the cessation of your menstrual cycles. A major amount of estrogen is produced by ovaries in body of women. Their adrenal gland and fat tissue also secret the hormone but in small quantities. Consequently, you can experience hormonal imbalance which can lead to other health issues.

Drop in the estrogen can be managed by changing your diet. In fact, many food items such as tofu and soya products contain plant-based estrogen. Eating right can also replenish your calcium reserves which are depleted during the period you undergo menopause. With reduced level of estrogen in blood, women become prone to calcium deficiency.

An improved exposure to sunlight and eating green leafy vegetables which on an average have more calcium compared to milk and get easily digested are some quick fixes.
