Bone health and menopause
Losing estrogen during menopause increases the rate of calcium loss from our bones, which can increase the risk of osteoporosis. A balanced diet full of healthy nutrients helps to keep our bones healthy. Calcium is an essential nutrient required for strong and healthy bones. Chia seeds contain over 600mg of calcium per 100g, which is about 5 times more calcium than regular cow’s milk.
Keeping your heart healthy
Menopause can increase the risk of developing heart disease, so it’s important to tailor your diet to protect your heart health. Healthy unsaturated fats from cold-pressed oils, nuts and seeds are perfect additions to your diet during menopause. Almonds contain healthy monounsaturated fats and fibre to keep your heart healthy. Thanks to their fibre content and healthy fats, almonds have been linked to reduced cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure.
