10. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Menopause causes many women to experience increased dryness. This change is likely due to a decrease in estrogen. Drink at least 8-12 glasses of H2O to help with these symptoms. Because of the excessive sweating brought on by night sweats and hot flashes, menopausal women have a higher chance of losing water and becoming dehydrated. The more hydrated you are, the less likely you will suffer from night sweats and hot flashes.
Bloating that can occur with hormonal changes associated can also be reduced by drinking enough water. Water can help prevent or minimize weight gain by helping to feel full. Drink at least 17 oz of water 30 minutes before a meal. This healthy habit may lead you to consume fewer calories during the meal. Water can also increase your metabolism slightly.
Not to mention, dehydration can cause joint inflammation and pain, mood swings, memory issues, headaches, constipation, and fatigue. Water is critical for menopausal women to hydrate cells, moisturize skin, and eliminate toxins from the body. It’s best just to ensure you keep yourself regularly hydrated during this time with this liquid oxygen. Adequate water intake is essential in aiding in minimizing dryness symptoms and helping with weight loss among other health complications associated with dehydration. Water is vital during menopause, so drink up!
