i found this article today and thought that it would be very helpful to my mut sisters. i, of course, am perimenopausal so i'm always looking for tips on how to keep my self regulated with diet and exercise. this way i can avoid having to take medication as i go through this "change of life". my guess is the earlier you start these regimes the better you'll be when you reach my age! i hope this helps!

great article ! i will just add iron, helps for the production of red blood cells. you can find it in red meat, spirulina (great weed found as a food supplement, contains vitamins and other nutrients), spinach, lentils.

magnesium also acts against stress ^^.
