ELASTICITY AND

BOOST SKIN ELASTICITY AND FIRMNESS WITH A HEALTHY DIET

After having seen together how healthy diet can help you during post-menopause, let's see how you can boost skin firmness. There's a strong correlation between skin collagen loss and oestrogens deficiency due to menopause. 30% of skin collagen is lost in the first five years of post-menopause. This doesn't mean you are powerless.

HOW TO BOOST COLLAGEN AND HYALURONIC ACID SYNTHESIS WITH NUTRITION?

We have all noticed it; slackness of facial skin is a direct menopause consequence. Wrinkles are more visible, and skin loses elasticity. But some specific food intake can reduce these unwanted effects.

  1. Collagen is made of different amino acids, but Glycine, Proline and Lysine are the ones we find in higher proportion. They will increase collagen dermal synthesis and prevent skin ageing. You will find them in animal proteins such as dairy products, eggs, or seafood but also in vegetables like quinoa and mushrooms.
  2. Closely related to the skin barrier function, Omega 3 will also guard you from dryness, inflammation, itchy skin or even sun damage. You can find it in salmon, nuts, trout or flax seed, canola oil or soybean.
  3. Vitamin C is fundamental for collagen synthesis. You will find it in all citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, or mandarins, but also in great quantity into kiwis, strawberries, or other green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach.
  4. Rich sources in Vitamin D eating fatty fish like trout or white mushrooms, will prevent you from skin dryness and will stimulate cellular proliferation of your skin.
  5. There is a close association between sugar and some food processing methods with skin ageing. Their mechanisms are related to skin Advanced Glycation End products (AGESs) and their accumulation fasten the ageing of your skin. Choose the right carbohydrates!
    • Prefer whole grains and low sugar food.
    • Avoid fried, grilled or baked food and prefer boiled, steamed or raw food
  6. Minerals like copper, silicon, manganese, iron are also needed for collagen synthesis. Find them in liver, oysters, spinach, legumes and red meat. As anti-nutrient (mostly found into vegetables) reduce the absorption of minerals, you can deactivate their effect by soaking or boiling the food before eating.

Nature offers endless culinary possibilities and as much as so many different pleasures. Post-menopause doesn't have to be a bad time. It is a new stage in your life, an opportunity to rediscover yourself. Never forget: The more you eat healthy food, the more you'll be healthy, the more you will go through menopause confident and happy.

CHOOSE
AN ADAPTED DIET
AT POST-MENOPAUSE

ADAPTED DIET AT POST-MENOPAUSE

WHAT IS POST-MENOPAUSE?

Changes observed before menopause will now vary in terms of the severity, the intensity or the frequency and must be apprehended over a much longer period of time. Fortunately, adopting an appropriate diet will prevent you from weight-gain and decreased muscular mass, but also from long-term consequences such as bone loss density and heart diseases.

WHY ADAPTED DIET AT POST-MENOPAUSE?

During post-menopause, the body use energy differently - and because we're all different, our body will respond its own way to menopause effects. But let's start with universal tips that suits each one of us in order to prevent you from unwanted gain-weight

  • Eat healthy and organic foods at each meal:
    • Try to eat at least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables.
    • Mainly found into fishes, fruits and vegetables we know that vitamins C, D, K as well as calcium are recommended for proper maintenance of bone health.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine and choose foods that are low in added sugars, saturated fats and sodium.
  • Make water your best ally by drinking at least 1,5L per day.
  • Practice daily physical exercises.

By adopting these habits, you will be able to reach a healthy weight. This is also the best way to drastically reduce the increased risks of heart diseases and bone loss during post-menopause. Decreases in estrogen production both increase bone resorption and decrease calcium absorption. You can easily prevent you from bone loss and osteoporosis consequences by fulfilling your calcium and vitamin D daily needs. Dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese, along with fortified juices, green leafy vegetables and canned fish will be your best ally. Lignans such as flax seeds, broccolis or cashew nuts will also reduce the rapid rate of bone loss during the first years of post-menopause.

Last but not least; be physically active in your day-to-day life.

First It helps to maintain healthy weight and thus decreases heart diseases risks. Second, it keeps your bone strong - and third, it makes you feel good.

HOW TO BOOST SKIN NUTRITION WITH OMEGA 3?

Modern Western diet has increased Omega 6 intakes. But Omega 6 needs to be well balanced with Omega 3 so both lipids can express their full benefits on your skin.

Closely related to the skin epidermal barrier function, membrane structure, internal environment balance, and damage repair, Omega 3 will guard you from dryness, inflammation, itchy skin or sun damage.

You can find the 500mg Omega 3 dose you need daily mainly in oil fish, salmon, eggs or canned fish. If you are vegetarian, you'll find them in flax seeds, chia seeds, soybean or walnuts.

Notice that Omega 3 will not only help you fight your skin ageing, but it will also help you to lower cardiovascular diseases risks as much as coronary heart diseases.

THRIVING IN POST-MENOPAUSE WITH A HOLISTIC HEALTH PRACTICE

WHAT IS POST-MENOPAUSE?

Post-menopause is the period of time starting a year after the last menstrual period. At this stage, the ovaries have stopped releasing eggs and producing most of their estrogen.

Symptoms experienced before menopause will now vary in terms of the severity, the intensity or the frequency. For some of you they may ease, while for others they could be felt more strongly. It even happens that symptom never experienced before menopause, suddenly appear during this new phase in which you enter. The main difference between peri-menopause and post-menopause is that the second one will last your entire life. Therefore, changes on your body must be understood over a much longer period of time. Whether to prevent from short, medium or long-term consequences thorough and regular consultations with a competent physician are essential to safely and confidently face this new passage of your life, which is completely natural.

SHORT-TERM CONSEQUENCES

Short-term consequences are usually, but not always, those you experienced during peri-menopause. Night sweats, hot flashes, sleep trouble or loss of libido during this phase, are unpredictable and will continue to affect you differently from time to time. In some cases, non-pharmacological treatments (healthy diet, exercise, herbals, cessation of alcohol and tobacco etc.) might not be enough. In this case, a talk with your practitioner may lead you to choose Hormonal Replacement Therapy (HRT), which can be very helpful for some of you.

MIDDLE-TERM CONSEQUENCES

  • Fat distribution

To compensate for the loss of estrogen produced by the ovaries, the body stimulates adrenal glands, which increase the fatty tissue from which oestrogens is produced. This is why we often observe a distribution of fat especially in the abdominal and buttocks area. Don’t panic, a healthy, varied and proportionate diet will help your body to adapt to these changes so you will feel better and healthier.

  • Genitourinary disorders

Loss of oestrogens sometimes leads to vulvovaginal atrophy with consequences such as vaginal dryness and discomfort, frequent and sudden urges to urinate, and even sometimes to stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine during moments of physical activity). Vaginal flora could also be affected by these changes and thus increase the risks to contract mycosis, vaginosis or lichen planus. Fortunately, specific exercises and dermatological treatments can prevent from all these effects. In most of the cases good prevention and regular follow-up will give all the tools you need.

  • Skin ageing and disorders

30% of skin collagen is lost during the first five postmenopausal years. This will directly affect your skin, hair and nails. However, you can boost the smoothness and hydration of your skin by improving your intake of foods rich in vitamin E, D and omega 3. You can also exercise as much as you can and give yourself a treat with beauty care that drastically reduces these changes.

LONG-TERM CONSEQUENCES

  • Musculoskeletal problems

Musculoskeletal symptoms characterized by backache, fractures from minor trauma, decreased height and mobility are common due to osteoporosis. Nowadays, osteoporosis is easy to prevent. Frequent physical exercise along with a proper intake of calcium and vitamin D can avoid most of risks. In case this is not enough, some very specific treatments still exist.

  • Cardiovascular diseases

Oestrogens play a decisive role into the protection of the heart and all the cardiovascular system. As their level decreases, risks of higher blood pressure, bad cholesterol and stroke increase. The best way to prevent yourself from these risks is having a healthy diet, regular exercise and giving up bad habits such as tobacco and alcohol.

For each symptom there is a solution - whether pharmacological or not. And because each of you is unique, these solutions will depend completely on your specific needs and your will. Whatever the choice you make, it has to be individualized - and this is what you’ll figure out with the continued guidance and support of your practitioner.
