Vitamin Supplements for Perimenopause and Menopause

Identifying Perimenopause and Menopause

As the baby boomers continue to grow older more and more women will need to know the importance of taking Vitamin Supplements for Perimenopause and Menopause. However, every woman should know about these vitamin supplements prior to beginning this phase of her life. According to the WebMD perimenopause can start in a woman as early as 30 and in rare cases even earlier. Therefore, it is important for women to get an early start on being educated to know their bodies well enough to recognize signs or symptoms that might be remedied and or eased with the assistance of a good vitamin supplement regimen.

From what I’ve read it seems the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are similar and both can be caused by an imbalance of hormones especially estrogen. Perimenopause can start with some or all of the following symptoms:


Additional Menopause Symptoms

According to the WebMD menopause begins a year after a woman has had her last menstrual period. The individual may still suffer from some or all of the symptoms of perimenopause in addition to having some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Joint and muscle aches and pains
  • Racing heart

Perimenopause Symptoms

  • Tenderness of the Breast
  • Worsening of premenstrual syndrome and or irregular periods
  • Decreased sex drive (libido) or discomfort during sex due to vaginal dryness
  • Fatigue and or difficulty sleeping
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Urinary urgency (having to pee more frequently) or urine leakage when coughing or sneezing
  • Begin to gradually put on extra pounds
  • Begin noticing dry hair and or skin
  • Begin losing bone density


Dr. Oz’s Views on Vitamins

The article titled Critical Vitamins for Every Woman on Dr. Oz’s website clears up the basic vitamins that every man and woman should be taking regardless of age.  These vitamins are:

A Multivitamin - Consisting of the vitamins A, B, C, D, and E that preferably can be taken twice a day. Once in the morning and one in the evening in order for nutrients to be utilize by the body throughout the day rather than all at once.

An Additional Dosage of Vitamin D – Because it promotes absorption of calcium, increases bone health, helps to fight some forms of cancer, and assists in reducing inflammation.

And Omega 3’s -  Every woman should be taking a 1000 mgs  and every man should be taking 600 mgs of Omega 3’s daily as a supplement to keep your brain, heart, and eyes in a healthy condition.   For more information on the power of Omega 3’s be sure to read

Symptoms of Perimenopause and Menopause

Insomnia and more...

Supplements for the Symptoms

Let me begin by saying ladies there are plenty of natural and medical treatments available to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause. Do not feel that you are trapped into a life of nothing but misery for the next ten years or more. Personally, I’m slowly getting to be at an age that perimenopause is attempting to ease in however; it is my intention to fight, fight, fight by trying everything necessary that is a natural based supplement to get relief. For me I think to have a mild case of insomnia every now and then.

So let’s examine some of the symptoms of perimenopause and or menopause and some of the vitamins supplements, herbs, and etc. that can assist in decreasing the discomfort one might be having:

Decreased sex drive (libido) or discomfort during sex due to vaginal dryness – For vaginal dryness vitamin E can help restore elasticity. Kegel exercises should be done to help in elasticity as well as build up the muscles of the pelvic floor to assist in controlling the bladder. Using water-based lubricants during sex can also minimize discomfort related to vaginal dryness. For more information on restoring the libido I suggest that you take a look at websites I am providing below and purchase the books. Each of these doctors specializes in assisting women in the perimenopause and menopause years to have a good sex life.

Fatigue and or difficulty sleeping (Insomnia) - Vitamin B6 is helpful because it produces serotonin; avoiding alcohol, no caffeine before bedtime, exercising during the day, taking some “me time” and relaxing before going to bed (i.e. taking a bath, meditate) and sleeping in a very dark room with no distractions (television, computer, etc) can help. Natural treatments for insomnia include the sedative herbs: dong quai, hops, melatonin, passionflower, and valerian. I can say that the valerian and the melatonin have worked for me.

Mood swings and or Depression - Vitamin B complex, magnesium, and exercise can help minimize these perimenopausal and or menopausal symptoms. St. John’s wort, is an herb that can help to provide a sense of well-being during these times. I have used this herb during the times of the loss of my loved ones; and it really seemed to help ease the depression during this time.

Hot Flashes and Night Sweats...

Hot flashes and or night sweats – Start by watching your diet by avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods. Dress in light layers of clothing or sleep in the nude; along with bedding that can you can cover up with or kick off with ease when you begin to feel warm. Also try doing some deep breathing exercises prior to going to sleep.

Irritability, a racing heart, and or anxiety - Vitamin B again can assist in boosting your nervous system. Using lavender as an aromatherapy can be beneficial by providing a calming effect. Try doing yoga or tai chi exercises along with meditation can help to relieve anxiety. The herbal remedies consist of passion flower, and valerian to assist in providing a calming and relaxing effect on the nervous system.

Dry hair and or skin – Vitamin E, the mineral zinc, flaxseed oil can help to restore your hair and skin back to a healthy appearance. Zinc in pill form is usually combined with magnesium or found within multi-vitamins it is also found in poultry, dairy, red meat, oysters and whole grains.

Gradual weight gain - Lifestyle changes and hormonal changes can control to an average weight gain of one pound per year during the perimenopause years thus resulting in a 10 to 15 pound gain by the time a woman reaches menopause. This is the time that an individual must step up eating healthy by decreasing dietary fat intake and increasing regular exercise routines.

Begin to lose bone density - To help restore bone density the vitamin/ mineral supplement of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D can help. Bone density naturally begins to deteriorate after age 30 due to reduced estrogen levels.

There are three other herbal treatments that are debated on by doctors and experts as to whether or not they are effective and or if they should be used in alleviating menopause symptoms:

  • Black cohosh: Black cohosh is believed to have the ability to have estrogenic activity. And in believe to be a herb that can relief a lot of menopausal symptoms such as to alleviate depression and assist in mood swings, anxiety and irritability, hot flashes and night sweats.

  • Phytoestrogens: Can be found in foods such as red clover, yogurt, lentils, spinach, sprouts, and fruits. This is composed of natural compounds similar to estrogen that helps to alleviate a variety of menopausal symptoms.
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) - Is also debated however is gain in popularity over the years. HRT can be administered orally (in pill form), vaginally (as a cream), or transdermally (in patch form). It is supposed to minimize the symptoms because it replaces female hormones produced by the ovaries. It is said to assist in decreasing hot flashes and night sweats, and reduce vaginal dryness. Many experts believe as well as debate that HRT can also help prevent osteoporosis, colon cancer, macular degeneration (vision loss caused by aging) and may delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Conclusion

I hope you have found Vitamin Supplements for Perimenopause and Menopause symptoms to be both helpful and informative. Please remember however if you want to give any of the herbal supplements a try; I suggest that you seek an experienced herbalist and or doctor prior to mixing any alternative medicines with the drugs (prescription or herbal) you are presently taking. And as always comments are always welcome.

@Nell Rose - Thanks so much Nell for stopping by and sharing your experience with flushes due to a thyroid condition. This to me shows the importance of taking vitamin supplements for perimenopause and menopause as well as other issues that may arise.

It just goes to show that as women we really need to research and find out what is going on with our bodies; rather than just enduring the discomfort and feeling unhappy. Thanks for sharing. :)

When we`re mere slips of things, we tend not to think about such things as vitamin supplements. But as we get older - especially around menopause - it is essential to give our body all of the nutrient it needs.

@shareitt - I agree shareitt, that it is very important for women to stop being the nurturers of everyone else, long enough to take care of ourselves.

Many times we are the last individual in the family to receive the benefits of a being nurtured. However, if we are to be great caretakers; we have to take care of our own bodies. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. :)

@alexandroaruthk - Aahhhhh thanks for the compliment! Yes, I was glad to do this hub because there are preventive measures (taking vitamins and being knowledgeably aware of changes within our bodies) that we all can be using regardless of what age we are now.

@bskinny - I agree bskinny, that women do worry about this phase of life, however thank goodness that women are talking about it more and sharing ideas of what works so that we all can become more knowledgeable when that time comes.

richardheft profile image

richardheft 6 years ago from Stratford, CT

It's a very informative article but you did not cover long-term dietary trends. I was a licensed Acupuncture Physician and Nutritional Counselor (FL 1992- 2002). I was also owner, operator of a small health food store, Food and Thought, Hollywood, FL (1984- 2001) which allowed me teh privilage of questioning and coudnsleing my customers (50- 80 per day), amny of whom were women.

No offense against modern medicine, they are often too quick to misdiagnose and mislabel symptoms. Many symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause can bne explained by blood deficiency vai long-term low protein, low fat and high carbohydarte diets. Please read teh followiung article, excerpted from my look. Also the number one supplement menopausal women, who shopped at my store, bought and raved about was progesterone cream.

The body balances hot (energy) and cold (blood, water). Hot flashes are temporary flashes of heat, suggesting deficiency. Long-term low protein, low fat (soft dairy, nuts, seeds, beans) and high carbohydrate (salads, tropical fruits, juices, smoothies, cold drinks, sugar, etc.) diets in the extreme, tend to decrease, thin the blood. Blood (nutrients) is strenthening, cooling, moistening, etc., which in turn, counters, controls excess energy, heat.

Blood deficiency cannot control heat, energy, allowing it to temporarily escape, flash out of control (blood, water not controlling fire).

Long-term blood, protein and fat deficiency tends to cause menopausal hot flashes, in addition to the following symptoms: fatigue, pain, poor circulation, joint and muscle aches, thin and dry skin, hair and nails, osteoporosis, racing heart, irritability, depression, decreasing sex drive, vaginal dryness, insomnia, night sweats, etc.

The answer to blood deficiency is diet. Supplements and herbs, which you have cited (B vitamins, fish liver oils, black cohosh, etc.) can help but not overcome the negative effects of poor diet nor prevent future symptoms, diseases, complications from occuring. Supplements supplement but do not repalce diet which is why many physicians (mainstream and alternative), pharmaceutical companies and hospitals stay in business as they have a never ending supply of sick people.

Are the centrum multivitamins any good for this?


Money Glitch profile image

Money Glitch 6 years ago from Texas Author

Hi edguider, Over the years, I tried a lot of brands of vitamins; personally, I am not a fan of centrum vitamins. However, if an individual is not taking any vitamins: I took the approach that "some" type of multi-vitamin would be better than "none at all."

If I recall correctly Dr. Oz's thoughts are that vitamins can be inexpensive as long as they are bought from a reputable source.

When I'm making a decision about a vitamin supplement, I usually try to use the entire bottle before assessing whether or not I like it. In other words does it make me feel better? Of course keep in mind that what works for one individual may not work for another. Hope this helps, thanks for stopping by. :)


edguider profile image

edguider 6 years ago

Thanks Glitch, going to do some more homework on multi-vitamins, was looking up centrum and they have some bad reviews :(


Money Glitch profile image

Money Glitch 6 years ago from Texas Author

You're welcome, edguider, just keep in mind that when researching vitamins and other natural alternatives that according to the seller of the product "it will make you walk on the moon."

But, according to doctors and prescription drug companies, "they all are no good." So, I try to make a decision based somewhere within the middle of the two opinions; since both of them tend to be bias for self promoting reasons. Thanks for stopping by again! :)

Hi MoneyGlitch, I agree. It is very important for us to be educated about the complications that menopause brings along. What I would like to add is that a good nutritious diet coupled with the appropriate supplements can curb hot flashes, mood swings and night sweats. I went the herbal way to alleviate these symptoms and have no regrets. Femestra, a herbal/natural supplement contains Rice Bran Oil which helped alleviate my hot flashes and obnoxious mood swings. I am thankful to Femestra and would be pleased to share the link www.femestra.com http://www.femestra.com/

Hi Melanie, I have not placed a supplement in apple vinegar cider. I'm guessing that such an experiment would be done to depict how one's stomach acids reacts to the supplement; in which case would greatly vary depending on the supplement. Thanks for stopping by. :)

30 year of age are too early to feel the Perimenopause. But nowadays i believe that it is. Woman should be aware on this, for them to know the risk of it.

Very interesting hub, thanks for the great read.

Very informative hub. I'm glad you put in a proviso about herbal supplements as some people overdose thinking that the more they take the better it will be for them, but just because it's natural doesn't mean it isn't harmful.

Drinking carrot and beetroot juice is also an excellent supplement for menopause.

Having been forced into surgical menopause I found this article helpful. I gave up alcohol and caffeine and added omega 3 and think that helped a little. I just need to get back into a consistent exercise routine which will also help with the bone density and hopefully reduce the hot flashes even more.
