Menopause is a natural part of life for all women that marks the end of reproductive abilities – it can happen at any age but usually occurs around 45 to 55 years old when oestrogen levels steadily decline.
Every woman will experience menopause in their own unique way and although some women may not be hugely effected, a lot or women encounter uncomfortable symptoms such as:
- Hot flushes
- Low moods and anxiety
- Poor digestive health
- Night sweats
- Reduced sex drive + vaginal dryness
- Impaired with memory and concentration
These menopausal symptoms can begin months before your menopause (this is called the perimenopause) and continue years after your last period.
Aguulp to support your menopause
During and post-menopause, a decline in oestrogen levels can alter the gut microbiome and reduce its diversity – in this time period it’s quite normal to experience digestive health changes, including increased gas, bloating, and irregular bowel movements.
Aguulp for Gut contains a powerful blend of soluble fibre, prebiotics, vitamins and amino-acids. The prebiotics help feed and stimulate the growth of good bacteria in your gut, allowing them to flourish and contribute to normal bowel function and better digestive health.
Skin & bone health
Aguulp for Gut also contains a perfect combination of minerals and vitamins to support the skin and bone health during menopause:
Collagen – Declining hormone levels can affect the production of collagen, one of the most important structural proteins in the skin. In fact, by the time we’re 40 we can start losing up to 1% of our body’s collagen each year. Studies have shown that supplementing 2.5g of collagen per day can lead to significant improvements in wrinkle depth, skin elasticity, and moisture. Aguulp for Gut contains 3g of collagen per sachet.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C is important for maintaining bone density and for the production of collagen. It may also help ease hot flashes, and its antioxidant effect can help reinforce the skin’s defence against external damage.
Vitamin D – Vitamin D help the body absorb calcium and maintain healthy bones during menopause. It also supports heart health, blood sugar regulation and the function of the immune system. On top of this several studies suggest that good levels of vitamin D can reduce the frequency of menopausal hot flushes.
Zinc – Zinc also helps to maintain collagen, bone and tissue health.
Mood & mental function
Brain fog effects ⅔’s of women going through the menopause, this likely related a drop in estorgen levels which can trigger mood changes and impair cognitive function such as focus and memory.
Luckily, Aguulp for Brain is specifically designed to help wipe brain-fog away and improve focus, memory and mood with these powerful ingredients:
L-Tyrosine – In menopausal women L-Tyrosine can help to regulate serotonin and dopamine production, contributing to a more positive mood, mental alertness, and a sense of relaxation.
L-Theanine – L-Theanine can help improve memory, learning, and focus, while enhancing mood because of its effect on the release of relaxation-related neurotransmitters in the brain.
Vitamins B6 – As women age, serotonin levels (the happy hormone) can drop, this may contribute to mood swings and depression. Vitamin B6 plays an important role in the production serotonin.
Vitamin B12 – B12 is essential for optimal cognitive function but as we age our ability to absorb it decreases.
Lemon Balm Extract – This soothing plant extract may help reduce cortisol levels and contribute to a calmer mood and a better night’s sleep during menopause.
And there you have it, two of our best-selling supplements that we hope will help support you through menopause.
