of perimenopause and onwards.

Vitamins C and D

Both these vitamins are vital to our overall health and play a crucial part in maintaining well being and although they’re not a treatment for perimenopause they can become a casualty with all the hormonal changes taking place.

Vitamin C helps support the immune system, promotes collagen production and has great antioxident properties – every face moisturiser I use has to contain vitamin C as it keeps spots at bay. You should be able to get enough Vitamin C through your daily diet if you include enough fruit and vegetables, especially oranges, broccoli, strawberries and peppers.

Vitamin D is a key player in keeping your bones strong and helping with calcium absorption and bone mineralization,  as we age we are at an increased risk of osteoporosis. It also assists with moderating immune responses and regulating our moods. 
Being outdoors and sunshine is the easiest way of getting your daily dose, but we don’t get enough of this, in the UK during the winter months.  Thankfully we can increase vitamin D levels with seafood, oily fish, egg yolks and mushrooms.
