As you’ve gotten older, maybe you’ve noticed a “little extra” around your middle. It could be—but isn’t always the case—that your hormones are changing, just like you are, and that any excess weight is settling comfortably around your waist instead of your thighs or hips. That mid-body location could create health risks for you like heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes or certain types of cancer.
A study published earlier this year from both a Canadian university and the Mayo Clinic found that certain proteins and enzymes are more active in post-menopausal women. Specifically, the authors reported that proteins stimulated by lower estrogen levels may in turn cause your fat cells to retain even more fat. Adding insult to injury, this happens as your body’s fat-burning rate slows down.
That sounds like double trouble, but no need to panic, for you have control over more than you think. I’d like to suggest you consider Estroven Weight Management formula, with multi-symptom menopause relief, especially if you’ve considered weight-control medications and decided their side effects aren’t for you. And if you’re on the fence about hormones because of conflicting scientific evidence, this product may help relieve menopause symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats, along with weight gain.
Full disclosure: I have not taken Estroven Weight Management because I don’t have menopause symptoms and I don’t have a problem with weight control. You, however, might also consider Estroven’s full line of products for multi-symptom menopause relief.
When estrogen declines
Estroven Weight Management is different from other non-menopausal weight management products because it is specifically formulated to address the effects associated with the decline of estrogen, says the company. “The product has been developed with ingredients from nature to provide safe, multi-symptom relief with demonstrated efficacy.” Estroven Weight Management is the number one pharmacist-recommended menopause brand based on the latest Pharmacy Times over-the-counter survey.
The product does not contain any synthetic estrogen, but it does contain, says Estroven:
- Synetrim® CQ, a proprietary, all-natural botanical extract of Cissus quadrangularis that’s clinically-proven to balance declining serotonin neurotransmitter levels
- Clinically proven soy isoflavones, plus the herb black cohosh help reduce hot flashes and night sweats. Isoflavones come from soy, obviously, and our bodies change them to phytoestrogens that mimic estrogen. Black cohosh is an herb that also mimics estrogen.
- Estroven Herbal Weight Blend of naturally-sourced ingredients supports healthy weight management and contribute to a healthy lifestyle
Not surprisingly, the most frequent recommendation for post-menopausal weight gain is for you to get moving. Estroven Weight Management has developed a really strong program especially for users of its product that features an easy-to-follow, comprehensive training schedule from veteran trainer Deb Horn. She thinks, as do I, that training should be time-efficient, goal-oriented and fun.
Your body’s changing, so change up your routine, says Horn, and you can leave elastic-waistband pants in the closet.
Let me know if you embark on this plan. I’d love to hear about your results.
