So many symptoms are connected with perimenopause and menopause that we did not list them all in the chart. Some symptoms which may be caused by estrogen dominance, typical of the early phase of perimenopause, include very heavy bleeding or prolonged bleeding at time of menstruation, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) including bloating, depression, breast tenderness, benign breast cysts, fatigue and migraine headaches. As always, check with your doctor, as symptoms such as heavy bleeding and depression may not be signs of perimenopause but due to some serious dysfunction in your body.
In addition to hot flashes, vaginal dryness and depression, many women also experience one or more of the following symptoms: low libido, brain fog, falling hair, dry eyes, dry skin, bone loss, heart palpitations, muscle and joint pain, insomnia, and urinary frequency and urgency. They may also develop Syndrome X, low thyroid function, high blood sugar and high cholesterol. It is important to consult a physician if you have one or more of these symptoms to determine if there is some functional cause other than menopause which is responsible for one of the symptoms listed.
Many women find these peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms clearing up when using a therapeutic quality Maca root concentrate, like Royal Maca®. And since peri-menopause and menopause are not designated as diseases, it is perfectly legal for us to let you know that these symptoms, if they are caused by this normal life cycle change–and your doctor will be able to let you know this–may very well be helped by the use of Royal Maca®.
What Men can do for Andropause Symptoms
Men are often much less aware of their andropause than women are of their menopause. Andropause, or a significant reduction in testosterone, as a result of the aging process in the body, can occur when a man is in his 40’s in some cases or as late as 80 years of age in other exceptional cases. For most men it occurs in their 50’s or 60’s.
Some of the symptoms of andropause are loss of libido, reduced sexual function, brain fog, fatigue, depression, and bone loss. If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, consult your physician to determine the cause. If the cause is andropause, a therapeutic quality Maca root concentrate like Royal Maca® may help reverse these symptoms.
Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) contains the amino acid Arginine that is needed to keep the liver, skin, joints, and muscles healthy. It strengthens the body’s immune system, regulates hormones and blood sugar, and promotes male fertility.
Royal Maca® for Men also contains the mineral zinc, which has been shown to support men’s fertility, potency, sex drive, and long-term sexual health. Zinc is also essential to sperm production.
