The menopause is a natural process that occurs in women at the end of their fertile period. It is usually experienced around the age of 50, but it can also start earlier, around the age of 40. Hereditary factors, lifestyle, and medical conditions can all contribute to when menopause begins. Menopause typically lasts for an average of two to six years and marks the beginning of a new phase of life for women. It is accompanied by hormonal fluctuations and can bring uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, irritability, dry skin, joint pain, and decreased libido.
Healthy nutrition and regular physical activity are important to manage these complaints. In addition, Ergomax offers a range of supplements and natural remedies that can help alleviate symptoms and support the female body during menopause. This allows women to stay full of energy and well-being during this life stage.

Causes & Symptoms
From the moment a woman begins to menstruate, an average of once a month, ovulation occurs. To regulate this menstrual cycle, the hormones FSH and LH are secreted by the pituitary gland, which are responsible for maturing the egg and triggering ovulation. The ovaries, in turn, produce progesterone and estrogen, which ensure that an egg matures and that the uterine lining prepares for the potential implantation of a fertilized egg. Menopause occurs when a woman's supply of eggs is nearly depleted. As a result, the ovaries gradually produce less progesterone and estrogen, while the production of the hormones FSH and LH increases. This shift has a significant impact on the female body since estrogen and progesterone are also involved in various other processes and bodily functions. These changes in the hormonal balance occur in different phases, and it can take 6 to 10 years for the transition to be completed. During this period, various physical discomforts can be experienced to varying degrees.
Natural Menopause Supplements
Menopausal symptoms can vary greatly from one woman to another. While some women go through menopause with ease, others may suffer from its effects for many years. Fortunately, there are several ways to support your body during this period and alleviate discomfort. Ergomax offers various natural supplements that have been carefully selected. These include multivitamin tablets from MegaFood, which are made from natural ingredients and specifically designed for women in this age group, LauriShield skin lotions that contribute to healthy skin, and Doctor's Best Menopause Formula, which is specifically designed to support menopausal symptoms.
Vitamins, Menopause & Hormones
Menopause places significant demands on your body, so it's advisable to ensure you get an adequate intake of vitamins and minerals to provide extra support. Vitamin A is important during menopause because it helps your immune system and cell division processes and contributes to healthy hair, nails, skin, bones, and teeth. Vitamin B6 is also essential as it supports protein metabolism, the formation of red blood cells, your natural energy production, and helps regulate hormone activity. During menopause, you may also experience high blood pressure. Folic acid, also known as folate or vitamin B11, contributes to normal blood formation. Additionally, vitamin B12, C, D, and E are important during menopause to provide extra support for your bones, immune system, natural energy, muscles, and cells.
Tips for Managing Menopausal Symptoms
In addition to ensuring an adequate intake of vitamins and minerals, there are other steps you can take to support your body and mind during this stage of life. It's always important, but particularly during this life phase, to listen to your body carefully. Menopausal symptoms are not always immediately recognized or taken seriously, so stay alert to unusual physical or mental changes, and discuss them with your doctor if necessary. Furthermore, take good care of your body with a healthy diet that is not high in sugars. Stabilizing your blood sugar levels can have a positive effect on the number of hot flashes you may experience. Hot flashes are caused by an adrenaline surge, and regular physical activity helps your body break down this substance more quickly. In addition to a healthy, balanced eating pattern, eating foods rich in tryptophan is recommended during this period. Tryptophan is converted by your body into the happiness hormone serotonin, a substance that is produced less during menopause and has a significant impact on mood and gut flora. Foods rich in tryptophan include eggs, bananas, lentils, grains, dates, sunflower seeds, and nuts.
