Orlando, FL — March 02, 2016 — There are many phases and challenges women face throughout their lifetime, and one is menopause. This natural change indicates the end of a woman’s reproductive ability. There are measures women can resort to in order to reduce the negative impact of this natural change.
Turmeric is believed to be beneficial in menopause and post-menopause. While menopause does not require a treatment because it is not a disease, there are ways to fight its symptoms. Fighting these symptoms can be extremely helpful for women who are having difficulties dealing with the change.
Some of measures include Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), blood pressure medications, and antidepressants. These medications and therapies can decrease the risks and symptoms that often takes place during menopause.
“Turmeric is one of the ancient, medicinal spices believed to be extremely therapeutic nowadays,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Turmeric is called “The Golden Goddess” not only because of its color but also for the therapeutic effects it could potentially offer. It contains a chemical compound called curcumin, which is also a phytochemical. This phytochemical contains various therapeutic substances such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.
According to experts, turmeric is a proven phytoestrogen, which is a plant metabolite that has the capacity to modulate the body estrogen activity. Estrogen deficiency often takes place during menopause, and it could lead to various health problems such as vaginal dryness, hot flushes, joint pain, reduced bone density, mood swings, and cardiovascular disease.
Turmeric could replenish the levels of estrogen in the body and reduce menopause symptoms. This spice is also believed to fight muscle soreness and body ache associated with menopause through its anti-inflammatory properties.
The antioxidant activity of turmeric is also thought to be as potent as that of Vitamin C and E. Menopause can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, which are characterized by intense sweating and rapid heartbeat. Turmeric is believed to have estrogen activity and antioxidant activity that fight hot flashes.
“Today, more and more people are using curcumin supplements, especially those with BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract,” added Scott.
During perimenopause, depressive symptoms often develop. These symptoms include stress, sleep disruption, and hot flashes. In animal studies, it was found that turmeric has antidepressant activities.
Turmeric is also believed to fight vaginal infections and post-menopausal complications. It also has the potential ability to boost the immune system by increasing estrogen levels in the body (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
