Are you someone that gets the “feeling” that it is going to rain, or the weather is changing because your aches and joint pains flair up? Have you noticed that the aches and pains are more of an issue than before? Decreased levels of estrogen and thyroid could be why!
Estrogen and thyroid at the correct levels help to reduce inflammation. As the hormone levels decline, inflammation may increase causing discomfort and menopause-related arthritis.
Supplements can also help if you are having aches and pains that are caused by inflammation. Fish oil and turmeric are the top chooses. Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which is vital to good health. Daily dose recommended for adults is 1-1.5 grams of active DHA and EPA . Turmeric is another great source to help with decreasing inflammation with a recommended dose of 100-500mg per day for adults.
