Brain fog is real & a frustrating symptom of menopause for some women.
60% of middle-aged women report difficulty concentrating with memory issues spiking in peri-menopause.
Research suggests that foggy thinking can be related to fluctuating hormones, but the good news is, there are some things we can do to reduce brain fog.
We have what’s called a ‘gut brain axis’ which actually links the gut to the brain & this effects both mood & memory.
1. Improving nutrition is the first step to improving brain fog. Increase foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids & reduce low quality processed foods.
2. Improve sleep quality as best you can.
3. Including exercise 3-4 times a week will also help.
If brain fog issues persist, it’s worthwhile ruling out other health issues with your doctor.
