A wonderful time of life when mood swings are as common as afternoon coffee breaks, and your memory decides to play hide-and-seek at the most inconvenient moments. Yes, we're talking about perimenopause, that transitional phase that signals the approach of menopause. If you're in your 40s and wondering whether you're experiencing it, you're not alone.
In a recent study in 2019 by Health & Her, memory loss, joint aches, mood swings and poor sleep are some of the most common symptoms reported by people in their 40s. Surprisingly, the symptoms we often associate with perimenopause, like hot flushes and night sweats, were less commonly reported. This underscores the need for education about perimenopause, as many people may be going through it without realizing it.
So, what can you do to sail through this phase? The answer might just be in your kitchen, and at The Source Bulk Foods, we've got some fantastic healthy options for you.
