Women can start experiencing peri-menopausal symptoms (such as fatigue, loss of libido, hot flashes, irritability, skin dryness) up to 10 years before their last period 😳
Here are our top picks of how to support your body through this gradual reduction in estrogen and progesterone, manage symptoms and to help avoid early menopause.
- Maca nourishes the pituitary gland (our ‘master gland’) which stimulates the rest of the glands in the body to produce hormones at the correct levels. By optimising your natural hormone levels, the fluctuations that cause peri-menopausal symptoms will flatten out. So many of our #Bursters tell us of the disappearance of their hot flashes and return of their libido once taking our Maca!
- Cinnamon helps maximise estrogen production by reducing blood sugar levels and increasing our sensitivity to insulin. This means we’re not overproducing insulin, which would contribute to lower levels of estrogen.
- Chlorella can help reduce bloating, water retention and gas that are common in peri-menopause. It helps to balance the gut flora for a flatter stomach! Chlorella is also famous for helping the body deal with toxins including hormone-disrupting chemicals such as those found in perfumes, plastics, pesticides, body and haircare products. A study published in the journal PLoS ONE in 2015 linked these chemicals to earlier menopause.
- Turmeric is packed with powerful antioxidants that can reduce the negative effects of hormone deprivation. It can help reduce hot flashes and improve psychological symptoms such as mood swings. Gentle phytoestrogens in Turmeric can help counteract the negative effects of loss of estrogen.

- Chia contains lignans (a type of fiber) that convert in the gut to phytoestrogens that help to raise estrogen levels.
- Spirulina is the hero for fatigue and brain fog thanks to its iron, B Vitamins and high protein content. As we approach the menopause, our muscle mass decreases, so try a serving before and after exercise.
