What is menopause?

Menopause is the body’s way of winding down your fertility. As a general guide most women start to experience changes from their early 40’s and on average perimenopause lasts from 5 - 10 years and menopause begins once periods completely stop.

Approximately 80% of women going through menopause experience some symptoms, which typically continue for around four years after the last period. But for approximately 10% of women, symptoms can last for up to 12 years. The type of symptoms experienced may be dependent on factors such as stress, sleep, exercise and your diet.


Perimenopause is the first rise in a hormone called the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). This hormone controls egg development in the ovary and rises due to the shortage of eggs in the ovary. This is the early phase of the menopause process.

Perimenopause can begin from the age of 35, however it more commonly begins at 45. The FSH levels rise in the pituitary gland which is the hormone control centre, so the more rested you are the better your body will be able to deal with this change.

When dealing with symptoms of perimenopause, diet is very important. The more rested and healthy you are, the better your hormone control centre and other organs will adapt to the hormonal changes.

Vitamin D is essential as the reduction in oestrogen means there can be bone density loss. Vitamin D aids calcium absorption which helps to strengthen the bones. Supplements like Cleanmarine MenoMin contain both essential fats and Vitamin D.

During perimenopause and menopause, sleep is affected as hormones control muscle relaxation. As there is a hormone imbalance, this affects sleep and as a result activates the adrenaline system, which also increases sweating.

To manage your symptoms naturally, get plenty of rest and take natural supplements such as Cleanmarine MenoMin.
