Bust through 30+ menopausal symptoms with my Menopause Supplement Cheatsheet

Apart from the 7 core symptoms that include hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, low moods, brain fog, fatigue and weight gain, menopause can come with another 30+ symptoms. It’s really intense right? But I can help you with all of those.

Why are there so many symptoms?

Oestrogen is the ultimate multitasker: apart from managing energy it boosts collagen and omega 3 production, it’s an anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant, and maintains vaginal health, just to name a few of it’s jobs! So as it declines in menopause, it can cause over 30 symptoms including loose skin, joint pain, dry eyes, vaginal dryness.

No need to suffer through your best years

I have spent almost a decade investigating what oestrogen is up to in our bodies and I’ve compiled a cheatsheet that you can use to identify which supplements can take over oestrogen’s jobs. For example you can use an inexpensive antioxidant to relieve joint pain in about a week, or firm up hair, skin and and nails with a protein powder within a month.

The Menopause Supplement Cheatsheet is included as a bonus with the Menopause Core Nutrition Solution, but you can get it as a stand alone.

No need to suffer through your best years – take advantage of the cheatsheet and get the know-how to bust through all your symptoms.
