We explain how you can best react to the changes in your metabolism.

Every woman knows that menopause will start sooner or later. Nevertheless, this important phase of life always comes as a surprise. We recommend: See the "hot years" as a great opportunity for yourself. Stay "cool" in your midlife and use the impetus to re-orient yourself in your new life. Experience more serenity and self-confidence – live your dreams and re-invent yourself. Everything is possible.

In this phase of life, it is all the more important that you feel comfortable and pay attention to your own needs. A healthy lifestyle will help you with this. With a balanced and nutritious diet that meets your needs and plenty of exercise in everyday life, you are well equipped for this important phase of life.

Menopause – The metabolism in transition

The hormonal change begins between the ages of 40 and 50. In this phase, progesterone levels drop and oestrogen production decreases. This also shows partially caused changes in fat and bone metabolism. Due to the decreasing energy requirement, fewer calories are gradually needed per day. In addition, the important muscle mass decreases. The muscles are gradually converted into fat. This is why many women often find it difficult to keep the weight in balance during menopause. In fact, this affects not only many women, but also men who are struggling with excess pounds at this age.

Now is the time to counteract this, with the right diet and an active everyday life. Those who keep moving daily and maintain muscle strength also protect themselves against osteoporosis.

What typical changes can be felt?

The hormonal changes of women affects the whole body and metabolism. It leads to various physical and mental changes, which many women find very unpleasant. They experience typical complaints such as hot flushes and sweating, mood swings and sleep disorders. Who needs that? During menopause, there are suddenly many new needs that need to be taken into account.
