Relieve Menopause Symptoms With Eggs

Relieve Menopause SymptomsWomen can relieve menopause symptoms by eating more eggs. Eggs are high in B vitamins, which play an important role in adrenal gland function to stabilize estrogen and progesterone balance to help reduce the onset of hot flashes. B vitamins are also essential for supporting a healthy nervous system and boosting energy levels.

One large egg contains only 70 calories, 6  grams of protein, about 5 grams of fat. Eggs are rich in varying amounts of essential vitamins and minerals...they are a nutritional powerhouse!

Eggs (an animal protein source) are among many other high quality protein sources that can be added to your meal plan to increase protein intake which is essential for supporting hormonal balance. Eat protein during every meal and snack to restore adrenal function. Plant-based protein sources will be discussed in later blog posts.
