Are you experiencing unexplained bodily changes? Perimenopause might be the underlying cause!
Do you have less energy and gain weight more easily than before? Do you feel irritable and stressed for no reason? Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate? These are all signs that you're in perimenopause. But don’t worry, it's completely normal in your forties.
What is Perimenopause?
Perimenopause comes knocking at our doors around four to ten years before the menopause makes its grand entrance. The menopause is, as you know, our last period. Perimenopause usually starts in our forties, but some women experience subtle systems as early as the age of 35. During perimenopause, you still have your period but they might start to become more and more irregular.
Due to gradual hormonal changes, you may experience typical early menopausal symptoms during perimenopause. These include:
#1 Fatigue and Exhaustion
Feeling like your get-up-and-go has done just that - literally got up and left you? Hormonal changes take a toll on your body. Now is the time to give your body VIP treatment by fueling it with all the essential vitamins, minerals and proteins it needs. XbyX Peri Balance supports your hormone balance during perimenopause and is best paired with XbyX Daily Energy, the protein-packed superfood shake that provides you with a healthy nutritional foundation.
#2 Trouble Sleeping
Tossing and turning instead of catching those zzz's? Blame it on the hormones. Improper nutrition, hormonal changes and pesky night sweats can disrupt your beauty sleep. But fear not as we have a nifty trick up our sleeve. For a quick fix, sip on a refreshing glass of ice-cold, unsweetened, 100% pure sour, cherry juice about 30 minutes before bedtime. Sour cherry juice is rich in sleep-promoting melatonin and also boasts anti-inflammatory properties. For an extra dose of serenity, consider adding ashwagandha (which XbyX Take It Easy contains) to your bedtime routine. Ashwagandha is a plant extract, also known as the “sleeping berry”, that is like a gentle lullaby for your mind.
#3 Mood Swings & Irritability
Feeling like you're riding an emotional rollercoaster and snapping at everyone in sight? Those fluctuating hormones can turn even the calmest water into a stormy sea. In this case, vital nutrients and adaptogens like ashwagandha in XbyX Take It Easy can give you the support you need to feel balanced and help bring back your cool.
#4 Weight Woes
Changes in our metabolism makes shedding those extra pounds or maintaining our ideal weight trickier than ever. To counteract these unwanted effects, it's time to embrace the power of protein. Make sure you’re giving your body a steady supply at every meal. Our XbyX Daily Energy - Protein Superfood Shake XbyX Daily Energy - Protein Superfood Shake has your protein needs covered, helping you fend off muscle loss and keep a healthy weight. It also promotes strong bones.
#5 Forgetfulness & Brain Fog
Have you ever found your keys in the fridge? Yup, our hormones also play funny tricks on our memories. During perimenopause forgetfulness is more common than ever. Choline, Vitamin B, omega-3s, minerals and the dynamic duo of ginseng and lion's mane mushroom found in XbyX Think Clearly are here to help keep your cognitive function, mental clarity, focus and concentration in top form.
Solutions for Your Well-Being
As you can see, there’s a lot you can do to alleviate perimenopausal symptoms and actively support your body during the hormonal changes that occur at the onset of menopause. The first and most important step is always making sure you’re getting the right nutrition and the correct nutrient supply. Studies show that this positively influences our well-being during menopause.
