Nutrition for menopause can be something that women can easily neglect, especially if hot flashes, irritability, and the frustration of sudden weight gain are taking over your psyche.

Menopause is difficult to cope with, and the capacity for “coping” can be so large, that many women just simply neglect their nutritional needs.

When women allow menopause to take over their lives, they often deprive themselves of essential nutrients that are needed for their bones, which can affect their post-menopausal health.

Post-menopausal women need to provide their bodies with essential nutrition, so they can have optimal bone health after the mood swings, hot flashes, and sudden weight gain, is all said and done.

In the video below, Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist explains why menopausal women need calcium and vitamin D in their diet to stay healthy.
