Turmeric May Be an Alternative for Easing Menopause Symptoms
Orlando, FL -- (SBWire) -- 09/20/2016 --Menstrual cramps, pregnancy, and menopause – these are the phases of life that many women experience. Menopause is a natural part of the life for a woman who is between 45 and 55. There may be undesirable consequences of undergoing menopause. The good news is that there are also alternatives believed to be helpful for menopausal women.
Turmeric may be an alternative in easing menopause symptoms. This ancient spice has been a popular natural alternative in fighting a range of conditions for thousands of years. Many of its potential benefits are believed to come from its phytochemical called curcumin.
"Today, curcumin supplements are widely available in the international market," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Menopause takes place when the ovaries cease to produce progesterone and estrogen. This natural phase that many women go through also indicates a decline in fertility. When the estrogen production in the ovaries slows down and stops, it may also trigger menstruation to stop eventually. Menstrual periods often become irregular before they stop. In addition to not having menstrual periods, menopause may also cause other symptoms.
Some of these symptoms are depression, anxiety, dry eyes, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, flatulence, hair loss, hot flashes, and forgetfulness. There are also those who experience mood changes, night sweats, indigestion, lower libido, sore breasts, vaginal changes, wrinkles, and weight gain.
It is also important to note that menopause may potentially increase the risk of breast cancer and chronic conditions such as osteoporosis. Menopause and post-menopausal periods are also associated with a higher risk of heart disease.
Hormones are kept balanced when the adrenal glands produce sufficient levels of testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone during menopause when the ovaries cease to produce them. However, there are factors that cause hormonal imbalances such as unhealthy body weight, stress, and environmental chemicals that act like the body's estrogen.
According to research, turmeric has the potential to keep the hormones balanced in many ways. This spice is believed to be an estrogen agonist, and it may aid in the maintenance or improvement of the ratio of beneficial estrogen metabolites.
Turmeric is believed to promote the levels and activity of healthy estrogen. It also has the potential to stave off the menopause symptoms linked with the loss of estrogen.
Turmeric also contains vitamin C and E, which are thought to help stimulate the adrenal glands in producing hormones. Vitamin C is also believed to have anti-osteoporosis effects.
Turmeric may be consumed through curcumin supplementation. Some of the more notable curcumin supplements contain a black pepper extract called piperine, which may increase curcumin's absorption inside the body.
