Perimenopause alternatives

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Women attempting to manage the period before menopause should consider vitamin E for hot flashes and vitamin D/calcium for osteoporosis, according to a report in latest Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association. The review of perimenopause treatments, part of an ongoing women's health series in the journal, notes many women do not get enough vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. Authored by Edyta Frackiewicz and Neal Cutler, California Clinical Trials (Beverly Hills), the review also recommends pharmacists help women choose smoking cessation therapies, since quitting can help alleviate perimenopause symptoms. Phytoestrogen intake through soy also is highlighted, although the authors note supplements may be more attractive than food sources, due to large (45 g/day) recommended intakes
