September is Menopause Awareness month and I’ll be honest with you and tell you I had no idea there was a menopause awareness month.  I honestly try not to think a lot about menopause. From my mother and friends who have gone through it, it really doesn’t sound like a fun thing to be a part of.  I’m hoping I can put it off for a few more years but at 46, I’m starting to notice a few signs of perimenopause. I won’t get into details but I’ll just say that “that particular time of the month” is considerably less fun than it used to be.  I’m also tired more, periodically cranky, and not sleeping well.  There’s also the 10 pounds that no matter how many celery sticks I eat just will not disappear.  If that’s perimenopause, I’m sure menopause is going to be even more fun.

Menopause Awareness

As I get closer to menopause, I know that it’s even more important to watch my health.   I have always tried to work out and eat healthy and as a woman’s body changes, her fitness routine needs to change too.  The supplements I take to manage my health may need to be adjusted as well to include things that help support the changes my body will go through during menopause.  I have heard a lot about hormones and menopause supplements and it’s left me a bit unsure what to do.   For me, I want to take something that will allow me to manage the symptoms of menopause (including the weight gain).  I want to be certain that it is something that’s safe and effective.

Estroven is multi-symptom menopause relief that helps with hot flashes, night sweats, other symptoms and helps manage weight. Clinically proven SoyIsoflavones plus Black Cohash helps reduce hot flashes and night sweats.  Proprietary Synetrim CQ ingredient balances serotonin to help safely manage weight. Extraven Herbal Weight Blend of naturally sourced ingredients support healthy weight management and contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Many of the ingredients in Estroven have been around for centuries.  I also learned that Estroven does not contain synthetic estrogen. I like knowing that there is a supplement I can take that will help make some of these symptoms easier to handle.


Estroven has teamed up with fitness/personal trainer, Deb Horn, to create an eight week workout plan that has been designed specifically for women. The workout is a low impact cardio workout that incrporates high intensity strength training. Now, I’m all for working out but I am not some huge athlete.  I was a bit worried that this workout plan was going to be really difficult for the average woman who sits at a computer all day.  Thankfully, it’s really quite doable and I can follow it to help fight some of the weight gain caused by changing hormone levels.

The workouts change every week so you aren’t doing the same old thing over and over again. Some days you are doing crunches and planks.  Some days you are walking.  Some days you are using a balance ball.  You even have fun days and rest days in the workout plan.
