Menopause is an inevitable part of a woman’s aging process. Menopausal transition, usually begins a few years before last menses. Menopause is when a woman does not have a menstrual period for 12 months. During this hormonal transition a women experiences multiple symptoms like Mood swings and irritability, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sleep problems, memory problems, weight gain and many more. 

During these times maintaining a well rounded and healthy diet is important to control these symptoms. 

Eating foods rich in calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D like fruits, greens, colorful vegetables, and dairy products can help in preventing the symptoms to get worse. 

Consuming omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the intensity of hot flashes and night sweats. Flax seeds and chia seeds are some rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. 

Adding foods containing organic estrogens like Broccoli, cauliflower, dark berries, chickpeas, and soybeans can help mimic estrogen and reduce some menopausal symptoms

Foods with high sugar content or really spicy foods can increase the intensity of hot flashes.
