Menopause is a natural transition in a woman's life that can be accompanied by many physical and emotional changes. Many women seek out vitamins to help ease the transition. While there are varying opinions on what vitamin is best for menopause, some of the most commonly recommended vitamins include vitamin D, Omega-3 fatty acids, and B vitamins.
Vitamin D is essential for maintaining strong bones and muscle health during menopause. Studies have shown that women who experience hot flashes and night sweats due to menopause may benefit from taking additional vitamin D supplements. The recommended daily intake of Vitamin D for adults is 600 IU - 800 IU per day. Women who take hormone replacement therapy (HRT) require more Vitamin D, so it's important to consult your doctor if you're choosing this option. Additionally, getting regular exposure to sunlight is an excellent way to naturally boost your vitamin D levels.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are known to reduce inflammation in the body which helps keep hormones balanced during menopause. It’s especially beneficial for those experiencing joint pain or other symptoms associated with hormone imbalance such as mood swings and depression. The American Heart Association recommends two servings of fish per week plus a supplement containing at least 500 milligrams of EPA and DHA combined, the two types of omega-3 found in fish oil supplements after consulting your doctor about dosage recommendations.
B Vitamins are essential for helping the body manage stress levels and maintain a healthy nervous system during menopause. B Complex supplements provide all eight of the necessary B vitamins and studies have found them helpful in reducing anxiety as well as managing hot flashes and night sweats due to hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause. A typical daily dose should contain between 10 mg-50 mg spread across these 8 essential B Vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and cobalamine (B12).
