What happens during menopause?
When a woman enters into menopause, the hormones that are produced by the ovaries are no longer being produced. A lack of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone will lead to the symptoms that a woman will experience during menopause. The adrenal glands are another way in which a woman can produce hormones once she has entered perimenopause and menopause, so it is important to support these important glands. Androgens (DHEA and testosterone) are produced by the adrenal glands and it is possible for these hormones to be converted to progesterone and estrogen. Women that have good adrenal function typically will report few symptoms of menopause and tend to experience a smoother transition through this time.
