Let’s talk about menopause and the best food for menopause symptoms.
The adrenal glands make all of the same hormones that the ovaries make. During menopause, the function of the ovaries decreases, but the adrenals can act as a backup and start making these hormones.
It’s not actually normal for women to experience symptoms or signs of menopause. The hormones that are created by the adrenals stem from a certain raw material: cholesterol. The problem is that people are told to avoid cholesterol at all costs.
Cholesterol is required to make sex hormones, adrenal hormones, fat-soluble vitamins, and bile salts—and it’s also essential to support the brain.
Cholesterol only comes from animal products, and 80% of the cholesterol that feeds the adrenals is LDL cholesterol. Cutting cholesterol out of the diet can potentially lead to a cascade of health issues, including menopause symptoms.
Olive oil is great, but it doesn’t provide cholesterol. The #1 food for menopause symptoms is butter. Cooking with high-quality grass-fed butter, or even putting it in your coffee, may help relieve symptoms of menopause.
It’s important to remember that as you increase your dietary fat, you need to reduce your carbohydrate intake. If you keep your carbs low, you can consume higher amounts of fat. Taking vitamin D and bile salts may also be beneficial to help your body digest the fat.
