Gut Health in Perimenopause and Menopause

The 4 PS of the good gut health in Perimenopause and menopause!

Are you having gut trouble during your Perimenopause and menopause? What are the best steps to take? One option may be taking probiotics. And, well, there are some good quality products out there. Research is moving at pace to track down the most impactful strains. 

What’s great to know is that everyday foods can supply much of what we need if we approach our daily and weekly diet with the right mindset. There is growing interest and debate around understanding the gut microbiome in both Perimenopause and Menopause. Having just spent a year writing a book about Gut Health, what I have noticed is that even leading experts can disagree on some things! 

As the research continues, we know there are specific things we can do to support the health, diversity, and balance of our microbiome.

The 4 Ps to good gut health have particular relevance in menopause:

Probiotics, eat good bacteria, think kimchi, kefir, live yoghurt, and kombucha.

Prebiotics are fertilisers for your good gut bacteria think – chicory, oats, bananas, asparagus, onions, and garlic are some of the best gut bug feeders.

Phytonutrients are all about eating the whole food rainbow, accessing different nutrients to feed you and your gut bugs.

Phytoestrogens like soya, tofu, and flaxseed support your body as your oestrogen levels dip.
