What nutrients do post menopausal women need?

Nutrients to Make You Boom in the Boomer Years

Recently, people have been saying, "40 is the new 30." Indeed, the 40-year-old women, and even the 50 and 60-year old are far more vibrant and energetic than the women of the generation before them. Why is this? Part of the reason has to do with exercise. The other part is probably based on the fact that in the past two decades, women are becoming far savvier about nutrition. To keep up with the booming beauty trend, here are some of the nutrients that should be an essential part of your diet:

  • Calcium: The recommended amount of calcium that post-menopausal women require to maintain bone strength is between 1,200 and 1,500 milligrams a day
  • Vitamin E: About 200-600iu per day of Vitamin E can help many menopausal problems such as hot flushes, night sweats, palpitations and vaginal dryness.
  • Vitamin C: When combined with hesperidin, 1, 000 mg. of Vitamin C is useful for preventing flushing and other circulatory problems.
