Friday, 04 Feb 2011 12:19 PM

Every woman will experience menopause at some point in her life, but it commonly occurs when women reach their late 40s or early 50s. Menopause literally means the end of the menstrual cycle. This condition occurs when a woman is no longer able to produce eggs.
Women nearing the age of menopause should take adequate vitamins  and supplements to ensure the right hormonal balance of the two most important hormones — estrogen and progesterone.

During the onset of menopause, a woman may experience several symptoms including mood swings, depression, hot flashes, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, weight gain, etc. These issues should be addressed immediately through proper diet and medication.

 Menopause symptoms can be treated by antidepressants, Gabapentin (anti-seizure medicines), or blood pressure medicines.

Antidepressants are used on patients exhibiting severe symptoms of depression. Gabapentin is considered to be as efficient as estrogen and helps reduce the frequency of hot flashes. Blood pressure medicines are used to combat mood swings.

There are also many herbal supplements that are beneficial for treating the symptoms of menopause including black cohosh, turmeric, red clove, and green tea. Some of the best supplements for menopause are readily available at homes and stores.
Before deciding on the best supplements for menopause it is best to seek medical advice.
Symptoms of menopause can be tiring and overwhelming. Seeking proper medical advice, choosing the right supplement for menopause, and working out a strict diet regimen will help fight these symptoms.
