How does Menopause cause digestive problems?
Fluctuations in hormones can have a negative effect on our digestive system. This is due to the important role oestrogen has on our cortisol levels. When cortisol levels rise, it results in an increase in blood pressure and blood sugar. This in turn slows down digestion, resulting in digestive problems.
The types of digestive problems experienced can range from bloating and stomach pain to indigestion and constipation.
Tips for managing digestive problems
Some general tips to help with digestive problems are:
Increase the amount of water you drink. It is recommended to drink 2 litres a day.
Eat slowly and eat small
Taking your time to chew your food properly and eating smaller meals helps you to digest food more easily.
Increase your fibre intake
Fibre aids digestion and prevents constipation so try to add some fibre rich foods into your diet such as brown rice, fruit, vegetables and oats.
Take a Supplement
Taking Vitamin B6 and Magnesium can help to reduce fluid retention. Turmeric is also known to ease digestive problems.
Exercising can help the digestive system to work as efficiently as possible so try to incorporate some exercise into your weekly routine. If you’re new to exercise or need some ideas get involved with some great home workouts on Katie Morris’ Fitness Expert Page.
