Let’s get talking about the menopause…
When you think of a menopausal woman, Lorraine Keane is hardly likely to be the first person to spring to mind!
But this week, the TV presenter revealed that she had been suffering from hormonal symptoms which were related to the peri or early menopoause but dismissed the symptoms because of her age.
Like a lot of women Lorraine, who is brand ambassador for Cleanmarine’s MenoMin for Women range, said she has had issues with her hormones over the years.
Speaking at the launch of the new range, she said: “I think a lot of women just accept that they feel the way they do. They ignore the symptoms and also think it’s something that happens to much older women, so it can’t be an issue for them”.
Some of the symptoms of peri menopause are:
- Hot flashes.
- Breast tenderness.
- Worse premenstrual syndrome.
- Lower sex drive.
- Irregular periods.
- Vaginal dryness; discomfort during sex.
Keane is keen to get women talking and stop the stigma around age and discussing the menopause in whispered tones. “It’s time to get over the silly embarrassment and be open about how we are feeling health-wise so that we can address the symptoms. I’ve really noticed the difference”.
Keane launched MenoMin this week, a natural supplement which contains a blend of Omega 3 Krill Oil, B-Vitamins, folate, biotin, soy and Vitamin D3, which is said to target the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Over 70% women on the supplement reported a reduction in hot flushes and 66% noticed a significant improvement in sexual desire.
