Embrace your journey with Menopause

Embrace your journey with Menopause

Menopause is a natural phase in every woman's life and while this transition is a part of life, it can come with a range of symptoms that can be challenging to navigate.

October is Menopause Awareness Month and is the perfect time to shed light on this significant life stage, to encourage and help women manage the symptoms of menopause effectively. Committed to supporting women's health and well-being, we'll discuss some common menopause symptoms and the products to help you embrace his new phase of life.

What is menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process, marking the end of a woman's reproductive years and typically occurring in the late 40s to early 50s, although the exact timing can vary widely from person to person. During this phase, a woman's ovaries gradually reduce their production of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone, leading to the ending of menstruation and fertility. The phase can bring about a range of physical and emotional changes, caused by the hormonal fluctuations which can include symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and changes in bone density.

While menopause signifies the end of one life stage, it also opens the door to a new chapter in a woman's life and it’s so important to recognise the changes. Some may seek for support, whether through lifestyle adjustments, medical treatments, or various products designed to alleviate symptoms and promote overall well-being. It’s is a natural part of the female life cycle, so don’t feel ashamed about it! Know that with the right knowledge and resources, women can navigate it with confidence and grace.

Supplements are designed to address specific menopausal symptoms like energy levels, mood swings, and bone health concerns. These supplements can help balance hormones, promote bone strength, and aid discomfort, contributing to improved overall well-being.

Menopause and skin

Women of menopausal age often notice dramatic changes in their skin. Oestrogen
plays a critical role in many skin functions such as collagen production. Studies show that women’s skin loses about 30% of its collagen during the first five years of menopause. After that, the decline is more gradual. Women lose about 2% of their collagen ever year for the next 20 years. Along with accelerated skin ageing, it’s
common for skin to become very dry, itchy and sensitive.

Intuisse & Active NAD+ for DNA repair

You may have heard of NAD+, a coenzyme involved in various metabolic processes in the body, including energy production and DNA repair, which is beneficial during menopause as women may experience fatigue and reduced energy levels.

Some research suggests that NAD+ precursors like nicotinamide riboside (NR) may have a positive impact on mood and cognitive function. Menopause can be accompanied by mood swings and cognitive changes, and NAD+ support might provide some relief.

In caring for the skin, NAD+ is crucial for DNA repair and cellular function so is great for improving skin elasticity, as well as strengthening the skin barrier. It also acts as
an antioxidant, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and environmental damage.

Intuisse is a skincare brand that harnesses Active NAD+, the breakthrough skincare molecule that penetrates deep into the cells to supplement the body’s own natural NAD+ levels and delay cell ageing.

Intuisse preserves healthy cells and delays the ageing process naturally with ground-breaking liposomal technology to deliver pharma-grade Active NAD+ deep into the skin.
