Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause is the end of a woman’s fertile years and can be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms as well as an increased risk of various age-related conditions. The primary symptoms of menopause include hot flashes and night sweats. Secondary symptoms can include anxiety, mood swings, depression, loss of libido and vaginal dryness. Due to changes in hormone levels, certain diseases are more prevalent after menopause such as steoporosis, cancer and heart disease.
Many women turn to conventional hormone therapies (HRT) to manage physical difficulties experienced during menopause. Unfortunately some of the therapies and medications have undesirable side effects. Studies have shown that plantbased estrogen-like compounds (phytoestrogens) such as lignans, genistein and 8-prenylnaringenin (8PN) have direct effects on some of the hormonal pathways that are involved in menopausal symptoms.
