It seems that menopause is one of those topics that most people would rather gloss over and ignore. But the fact is that, as a woman, all of us will go through menopause at some point, barring any medical reason to the contrary, and we will all go through the discomforts of a changing body, too. Rather than hide away and suffer the changes alone, I firmly believe that being upfront, unashamed, and tackling menopause head on – together – is the way to go.
While I am still on the early end of menopause, I have noticed the signs of perimenopause for several years already. I’ve noticed a drastic change in the way my body reacts – to exercise, to foods, and to hormones. Although waking up with a sweaty back every night is annoying, my most difficult change so far has been my weight gain and changing body. Sometimes I don’t even recognize my own body.
When I was contacted by Estroven recently to write about their new weight management formula, I was intrigued. I know that a big chunk of my weight issue is hormone-related (the other big chunk is, of course, the fact that I spend most of my day sitting at the computer), and I thought it was worth looking into. Here’s what I found out:
As you enter menopause, estrogen levels in your body decrease, which is why many women unexpectedly find their weight more difficult to manage and jeans more difficult to fasten. According to Dr. Shari Brasner, “Estrogen influences energy expenditure as well as food intake, and as levels of this hormone decline, processes in the body that regulate weight also change resulting in a sudden shift in weight. Those processes affected involve insulin, leptin, ghrelin, neuropeptide Y and serotonin.”
New Estroven Weight Management is specially formulated to address the physical changes associated with menopause and to deliver on its core benefit of helping perimenopausal and menopausal women manage their weight. That’s because it’s Synetrim® CQ ingredient – a proprietary, all-natural botanical extract of Cissus quadrangularis – is clinically-proven to balance declining serotonin levels.
NEW Estroven Weight Management with clinically-proven Synetrim® CQ goes beyond relieving hot flashes and night sweats to help you safely manage your weight.

I couldn’t use this but my mother sure could. She is having some issues and would like to manage her weight better.

I too would love to get my weight under control. After my hysterectomy 1 year ago, I have consistently gained! And any help with night sweats is welcome here!

I am almost 50 and need to lose weight. I am the perfect candidate
I’d like to give this to my mom.
Really getting serious about losing some of this weight I’ve accumulated over the past few years. It’s so easy to put on, but tough to take off!

Getting “old” is fun, right?
