Menopause, the 10 symptoms to recognize it

A diet rich in legumes and fish can help postpone menopause for at least three years.

A scientific research reveals that, once again, links nutrition to changes in our body. The age at which menopause is reached is essential for women's health, if it arrives too soon it could lead to serious problems, such as osteoporosis or cardiovascular disease. Research conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Leeds has shown that a diet based on legumes and fish rich in omega3, is able to slow down entry into this new phase of women's lives.

On the contrary, a diet based mainly on refined carbohydrates, such as pasta or rice, can accelerate the arrival of menopause by a year and a half. The research, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, was conducted by analyzing information on 14,000 women in the UK. The results allowed to establish that over 900 women between the ages of 40 and 65 entered menopause at 51 years of age. Scientists have also identified the correlation between the appearance of this condition and a particular type of diet.

Going deeper into the question they discovered how some foods are useful for slowing the arrival of menopause. In particular, fatty fish, such as anchovies, salmon, mackerel, and legumes, including peas and beans. These foods are rich in zinc and vitamin B6.

"The age at which menopause begins can have serious health implications for some women – explained Janet Cade, author of the study and nutritional epidemiology scholar -. A clear understanding of how the diet affects the onset of natural menopause will be very useful for those who may already be at risk or have a family history of some complications related to menopause. "

"This study – added Yashvee Dunneram, of the School of Food Science and Nutrition – is the first to investigate the links between individual nutrients and a wide variety of food groups and age at natural menopause in a large cohort of British women . But further studies are needed to improve understanding of how this could have an impact on health and well-being ".
