As well as collagen, it’s also vital to support our nervous system and sleep cycles as these are often impacted too. Using key minerals; such as Magnesium and Zinc, vitamins; such as Vitamin C and botanicals; such as cacao, ashwagandha and reishi, we can support the menopause in a holistic way. You’ll find these core ingredients across our blends.
Perimenopause and menopause is a challenging time for women, both physically and mentally. During this phase, our bodies need different nutrients at different levels on a day-to-day basis due to the fluctuations in hormone production leading to an array of symptoms. Ensuring your body gets what it needs in abundance is key to making those difficult days a bit easier.
During the first five years of the menopause, it is thought that women lose 30% of their skin’s collagen and continue to lose 2% of their collagen annually after that. Women may also experience hair loss which can be distressing as collagen makes up 70% of the skin that contains the hair root. Supporting and protecting collagen is vital for all skin renewal and future-proofing rituals. Taking True Collagen or our Vegan Collagyn during this time supports your body in maintaining its collagen levels, preventing some of the unwanted effects of the menopause.
