Candies Can Have A Positive Impact on Menopausal Women, How is That Possible?
Unlike men, women have a unique experience as they enter a stage of life that is no longer youthful. Typically, they will go through menopause, where they no longer experience menstruation, rendering their reproductive organs incapable of bearing offspring. Most women experience menopause between the ages of 45 and 55 as a natural part of biological aging.
However, according to data from NHS Inform, menopause before the age of 40 is termed premature menopause. Spontaneous (natural) early menopause affects around 5% of the population before the age of 45.
As per the same source, the precise cause of this occurrence is not yet clearly understood. However, in broad terms, there are several reasons leading to early menopause. Factors affecting early menopause, as reported by healthline.com, include genetics, lifestyle, chromosomal issues, autoimmune diseases, and even epilepsy.
Consequently, aging becomes inevitable, and facial skin begins to lose its firmness. This aging process concerns many, especially women in the menopausal phase. This is evident from a Statista study, which shows that a significant number of women between the ages of 40 and 65 believe that menopause affects the quality of their lives.
Apart from premature aging, menopause also results in a decrease in estrogen levels. This typically occurs as women approach or enter menopause. Symptoms include hot flashes around the body, especially in the face, neck, and abdomen, which can disrupt daily activities, both during the day and at night.
To alleviate these symptoms, licorice root, a natural remedy, can be used. According to a journal titled 'Effects of Licorice on Relief and Recurrence of Menopausal Hot Flashes,' licorice roots have been found to reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes. The administration of this safe and affordable herb, which is well-received by menopausal women, along with regular physical activity and the consumption of dairy products, is recommended for alleviating this complication.
Meanwhile, Licorice root, one of the world's oldest herbal remedies, is derived from the root of the licorice plant (Glycyrrhiza glabra). Indigenous to Western Asia and Southern Europe, licorice has been used for centuries to treat various ailments and flavor candies, beverages, and medicines.
During menopause, decreasing estrogen levels leads to uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes. In several studies, menopausal women who were given licorice supplements reported a reduction in the severity and duration of hot flashes.
Consuming licorice root is convenient because it is available in various forms, including candy. To consume it, one can simply chew the candy in their mouth, helping to alleviate symptoms associated with reduced estrogen levels. The formulation used for licorice candy may include sugar, apple juice concentrate, licorice extract, citric acid, cinnamon extract, honeysuckle flavor, and ascorbic acid.
