Women’s Health

Understanding women’s unique health needs

At every stage of women’s lives, nutrition and regular exercise are the cornerstones of good health and optimal energy. But certain vitamins and minerals become especially important at particular times of life such us:

  • Pregnancy
  • Ageing, menopause and hormonal changes
  • Demands of family and work or school
  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Medical conditions and medication

These demands can make it difficult for any woman to maintain a healthy diet. Ensuring you have the right nutrition can not only support your mood, boost your energy, and help you maintain a healthy weight, it can also be a huge support through the different stages in a woman’s life.

Women’s sexual health

Why is sexual health important?

Sexual health is an important part of human health and forms a crucial part of our emotional and physical wellbeing.

Usually the emphasis has been placed on physical health, mental health and spiritual health, but feeling confident about your sexual health is also very important. Love, affection and intimacy all play a role in healthy relationships and a fulfilling sex life can improve your sleep quality and reduces stress.

Factors affecting sexual health

There are several factors that can affect your sexual health such as age, general health, how you feel about your relationship, medical conditions and medications.

Are natural supplements useful for sexual health?

Tribulus terrestris is a plant that has shown benefit in women with low sexual desire disorder. It has been reported to improve desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction as well as decreasing pain during sex.

Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, has shown improvements in sex drive in both men and women. It has also shown benefit in people suffering from decreased sex drive due to anti-depressant medication.

Panax ginseng (Asian ginseng) may improve sexual desire in women going through menopause.

Managing menopause

Symptoms associated with menopause

Approximately 75 % of women experience symptoms called vasomotor symptoms which include hot flushes, night sweats, palpitations and migraines. Hot flushes can often last 3 – 4 minutes and occur at unpredictable intervals.

About 60 % of women will experience symptoms that affect the urogenital tract such as vaginal dryness, itchiness, and some may experience pain during sexual intercourse. A decline in libido is also common.

As many as 45 % of women experience symptoms such as anger/irritability, anxiety/tension, depression, sleep disturbance, loss of concentration and loss of self-esteem/confidence.

How MenoXen can relieve symptoms associated with perimenopause/menopause

Menopause causes a reduction in magnesium levels. Supplemental magnesium reduces hot flushes and night sweats in peri-menopausal and menopausal women.

Folic acid and Vitamin E have been shown to be effective in reducing the severity and frequency of hot flushes.

Black cohosh is also effective in reducing the severity and number of hot flushes and improving quality of life. It has also shown improvement in sleeping, fatigue levels and abnormal sweating.

Chaste tree berry (also known as Vitex Agnus-castus) is well known for its benefits in premenstrual syndrome but has also shown benefits in decreasing the number and severity of hot flushes associated with menopause and has also shown improvement in night-time sweating.

Dong quai and wild yam are also traditionally used for hot flushes.

Magnesium has shown benefit in reducing symptoms such as insomnia, tissue dryness, mood swings, anxiety, irritability and water-retention. It has also been associated with an improvement in energy levels which tend to dwindle during menopause.

Black cohosh and chaste tree berry have also shown beneficial effects on mood symptoms associated with menopause. Chaste tree berry has shown improvements in insomnia, anxiety, depression and headache.

L-methionine is also known to improve depressive symptoms in post-menopausal women.

Chaste tree berry (Vitex Agnus-castus) is often recommended for women in perimenopause experiencing irregular menstrual cycles.
