Too much of anything can do harm so only use them in moderation and you should definitely check with your primary care provider before starting a supplement because they might interfere with some medications that you're already taking So let's get started, here's what may happen if you put these tips into action today! You might sleep better, experience less hot flashes, have more clarity in your thinking, have more energy, improve your mood and lose weight So here are the 5 supplements that can help with your menopause symptoms This first very important is probiotics Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your gut health
They improve your digestive tract which can help your mood and help you lose weight The second is DHEA Some research has found that taking DHEA supplements can improve libido and reduce hot flashes during menopause It can also be useful for the treatment of depression, weight loss, adrenal and sip insufficiency and, bone density The third is black cohosh
This is especially useful for hot flashes It's been around for a while but don't take it if you have liver problems The fourth is St John's Wort which is especially useful when combines with black cohosh, it can especially improve your mood swings during menopause but consult your your doctor before using it if you're already taking antidepressants And the fifth one is dong quai
