Brain fog in Menopause
As we age, our circulation slows down resulting in less oxygen being circulated to our body and brain. As our oestrogen levels decline the neurotransmitters slow down leaving our brains no longer working in the way they used to.
The good news is that there are ways in which we can stimulate our brains to improve cognitive function, as well as supplements that can also support it.
Top tips for dealing with brain fog
When you can’t concentrate, everything is more difficult and you can easily become frustrated. Below are our top tips for how to manage brain fog:
Take the pressure off and make lists and notes to job your memory of upcoming tasks and events.
Foods that may help
Boost your brain function with foods rich in vitamin C, B and B12.
Foods rich in vitamin C such as berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc). Dried figs are a concentrated source of iron which when eaten regularly is thought to help with brain fog and also gives your energy levels a boost too.
Good food sources for vitamin B6 and B12 are tuna, salmon, chicken, and eggs.
B vitamins, and in particular B6 and B12, are especially important for cognitive function during the menopause years. View our full range of vitamins and supplements here.
Exercise your mind
Stimulating your brain is key to cognitive function. Try taking up a new hobby, or doing something that is different to what you normally do.
Try making time for some self-care and take time out to relax and give your brain a rest. This could take the form of having a relaxing bath, going to a sauna, meditating or some other form of mindfulness.
When we are sleep deprived, we’re unable to operate properly. Focusing on getting a restful night’s sleep can really make a difference to how you feel the following day. Adopting a bedtime routine really promotes a good night’s sleep by getting both your mind, and body, ready for sleep.
The Menodelight Sleep Ritual Trial pack can help you adopt a relaxing bedtime routine and can be found here.
