Sooner or later we will all experience it: Menopause!
Both men and women experience both menopause - although in different ways.
For women: Bit by bit, the ovaries stop working and produce less and less of the female sex hormone estrogen. The consequences: Ovulation and thus menstruation stop.
But that is not all. Menopause comes with a whole series of changes in our bodies. This is because, up to now, the hormones have fulfilled many different tasks. For example, hormones have slowed the loss of bone mass and kept our mucous membranes moist, which affects cholesterol levels.
For men: During climacteric, the body produces less of the male sex hormone testosterone. This begins gradually; menopause can start in men as early as their mid- to late 30s. At that age, the body's production of testosterone decreases by an average of one to 1.2 percent per year. This is why climacteric in men is also known as testosterone deficiency syndrome.
No wonder, that these changes in the body bring with them numerous consequences and side effects.
Very important for any change in our life is to listen to our body and accept that a physical change always requires changes in our health routine.

Blood cells are a very important part of our immune system and should therefore be well supported.
