Menopause affects all women differently. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help keep menopause in check or less overwhelming, as can targeted nutrition. 

Manage the changes of menopause

Menopause hits the average woman at age 51.

If you haven't been taking the supplements that women of all ages should take — like a multivitamin and probiotic — maybe it's time to be proactive? 

Siberian rhubarb addresses some of the more common menopausal discomforts, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, sleep disturbances, exhaustion, vaginal dryness, and more. See our picks for the best support.

The healthier baseline you're able to establish now, the better equipped you'll be to navigate these changes.

Best bone health supplement:

  • Bone Restore with vitamin K2 >> With less estrogen comes lower bone density; the majority of bone loss you'll experience in your lifetime is within the decade that you go through menopause. Bone Restore with vitamin K2 is packed with ingredients that help your bones stay youthful.

Best anti-aging skincare supplement: 

  • Declining levels of estrogen can cause your collagen levels to take a dip. Our new Daily Skin Defense >> helps with hydration, collagen production, and protection against everyday oxidative stress.

Best formula to keep your sex drive alive: 

  • Well, that dip in estrogen doesn't just affect your hair, skin, nails, and bones. It also means you may be less interested in sex — even if you're "in the mood" mentally and emotionally. Enhanced Sex for Women 50+ >> is a best seller for a good reason. 

Best menopause supplement for weight loss: 

  • There's no magic supplement that will melt away menopausal weight, but you will find options that make it easier to stick to your goals. Body Trim and Appetite Control >> uses a clinically studied combination of lemon verbena and hibiscus extracts to help you master your appetite and avoid overeating. 

Best menopause supplement for weight loss and less bloating: 

  • Bloat Relief >> Bloating during menopause can happen due to changes in your gastrointestinal tract, which Bloat Relief addresses.
