Managing our health is absolutely essential during the menopause transition and beyond, when aging and hormonal changes increase our risk of disease. Osteoporosis affects one in three women over 50 years old, and cardiovascular diseases and stroke result in the deaths of one in three women every year. Toss in hot flashes, weight gain, night sweats, sleep disturbances, forgetfulness, itchy skin, and mood changes, and the change of life can become a nightmare.
It is imperative for us to maintain healthy lifestyle habits during this time, so we can keep our cholesterol, high blood pressure, and blood sugar in check, and not compromise our fitness and well being. As an avid student of research on women’s health, I realized that we could greatly benefit from a tasty shake that would give us all the daily nutrients we need once we enter menopause. My Menopause and Beyond Life Stage Shake® provides just the right amount of plant-based protein, vitamins and minerals. It’s delicious, and it’s low calorie!
Every single ingredient that goes into creating Life Stage Shake®, including antioxidants, omega-3s and probiotics, contributes to helping our bodies combat the effects of aging and hormonal fluctuations, such as hot flashes; declining muscle and bone mass; increased cholesterol and triglyceride levels, blood sugar, and blood pressure; mood changes; dry skin; macular degeneration, and cataracts.
The Menopause and Beyond Life Stage Shake® also can curb hunger and cravings. How great is that!
