3. Vitamin E
When combined with vitamin B complex, as mentioned above, vitamin E can alleviate more menopause symptoms than just the hot flashes. During menopause, free radicals increase and vitamin E can fight back to alleviate their harmful effects. As an antioxidant, vitamin E can aid with other symptoms of menopause including fatigue, sleeping problems, dizzy spells, feeling short of breath, and heart palpitations.
Eating more broccoli and avocado will increase your vitamin E intake, as well as eating more of certain nuts such as almonds and hazelnuts. Vegetable oils are good sources as well, and they also provide healthy fats. If you can’t get enough from eating real food for whatever reason, supplements are also available at most supermarkets and health food stores. However, you should talk to your doctor before you start taking any supplements just to make sure that it will be appropriate for you as there can be side effects.
