Water - benefits for menopausal women

Updated: Sep 4, 2022


Why is water so important during the menopause?


Our bodies are made up of 75% water, so it's extremely important to stay hydrated at all times.


Loss of oestrogen


The menopause is caused by declining levels of hormones, including oestrogen. One of the things ostrogen does is to help keep us hydrated and unfortunately the menopause causes our bodies to lose the ability to retain water.


So now is most definitely the time to drink more water!


Here are some reasons...


Joints ~ dehydration can cause joint inflammation and pain.


Skin ~ dehydration can cause itchy and wrinkly skin!


Mood Swings/Stress ~ dehydration can cause mood swings, anxiety/panic attacks, palpitations.


Headaches ~ menopause headaches are real, so keeping hydrated is a must


Memory ~ dehydration can affect brain function and can cause brain fog


Constipation/bloating ~ drink plenty of water to keep things moving


Hot Flushes ~ dehydration can affect the nervous system, which triggers hot flushes. Hot flushes can make you sweat, dehydrating you even further, so you need to replenish that water.


Fatigue ~ water can increase your energy levels


You've read this and you already know that water is good for you, but for some reason drinking water is so hard for us to do. But try it for two weeks and see if you can feel the difference. And just think, what else in life is this good for you and is totally FREE!


TIPS


Try filling a couple of litre bottles up and say you will get through them by the end of the day.


Add natural lemon juice for taste.


Drink room temperature water as very cold water is not good for digestion.


Have boiled water (cooled) and lemon juice first thing in the morning. Its fantastic for your digestive system
