How you handle menopause will impact your health for the rest of your life.

Menopause is a big part of every woman’s life, and learning which vitamins can help for menopause symptoms will help you get through this time stronger than ever before. So what vitamins are good for menopause in the UK – we took a look at Vitamin D.

Which vitamins do I need to take during menopause?

During menopause, your body sheds its reproductive abilities and prepares for the new needs you’ll have the rest of your life. You may feel like a different person, which means you might have trouble adapting to your changing needs. Taking Vitamin D, can prevent certain menopausal comorbid conditions. And alongside calcium that prevents postmenopausal osteoporosis Vitamin D could be your new saviour.

Vitamin D during menopause.

Synthesised from sunlight and found in certain foods, Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium and a variety of other bodily processes. This little wonder of a vitamin plays a central role in many body processes and is on the A-list for women during menopause. Studies have linked it to preventing heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, and weight gain.

You may think of Vitamin D as you do other vitamins such as Vitamin C or the B vitamins. Yet Vitamin D is unique in that it functions more like a hormone than a vitamin. And as we know from deficiencies in other hormones such as insulin and thyroid hormone, a hormonal deficiency can cause a multitude of seemingly unrelated problems. It’s important to be aware of your intake of Vitamin D as you approach menopause because research is discovering its role in the prevention of many diseases and conditions that are more common as you age. You may be aware of Vitamin D as a helper for absorbing calcium and building bones. But it is involved in many other processes that protect you from disease and health problems.

Why Vitamin D in particular?

As your body goes through menopause, decreasing levels of oestrogen naturally lower the amount of Vitamin D in your body. Supplementing with Vitamin D during menopause could help with your symptoms.

Calcium during menopause.

Your bones are made from calcium, and you need to keep consuming this essential mineral to maintain optimal bone density. Various factors can reduce your body’s ability to use calcium as you get older. So supplementing can help prevent natural age-related bone loss. With the help of Vitamin D, calcium releases during digestion, and your body then uses these raw materials to build bone tissue. Osteoporosis is one of the most common age-related conditions, but bolstering your calcium levels prior to menopause reduces your risk of osteoporosis.
