Your current hormonal phase

It looks like you've reached the wisdom, serenity and strength of postmenopause! Most of us experience menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, with 52 being the average age. Menopause marks the point of your final period, when the last available egg begins its journey. You'll only know for sure when you've gone without a period for about a year.

From now on, the postmenopause begins, lasting for the rest of your life. It's your body's new normal, with oestrogen and progesterone hormones now permanently low and without significant fluctuations. So much freedom! No more pads, tampons, cramps or unexpected bleeding.

A special case of postmenopause is surgical/induced menopause, such as after a total hysterectomy, oophorectomy or due to hormone-positive cancer diagnoses. It's referred to as "early or premature menopause" when a woman experiences it before the age of 40.

Top Tips

For postmenopause

With decreased oestrogen levels, its protective effects on the cardiovascular system, bones, brain, skin and more, diminish. Just like with a valuable vintage car, your body's demands increase: preventive check-ups, healthy nutrition, exercise and mental balance are now more important than ever! Harness the power of nature to support your body and mind. Plant-based proteins are suitable for strong bones and muscles. Phytoestrogens, anti-inflammatory and antioxidative micronutrients are essential for heart, brain, intestines and the immune system. Follow the Simple 7 nutrition concept and compliment it with Phyto Power to nurture and fortify yourself.

Step by Step

Gradual changes are the most successful. Focus on the most important step first. By the way, our name XbyX is composed of 'XX' for the female chromosomes and 'Step by Step' for the gradual optimisation of nutrition and lifestyle. Quite fitting, isn't it? 😊

Your priority

More Hormonal Balance & Fewer Symptoms

Among the approximately 1,000 hormones, the messengers of our body, there is always something happening. Not only during fluctuations in the monthly cycle. For example, stress hormones like cortisol, rise and fall, influencing oestrogen and progesterone.  Meanwhile, every day melatonin (the sleep hormone) tells your body when it is time to sleep or wake up, by communicating with other hormones. 

An excess of stress, lack of sleep or nutrient deficiencies disrupt this finely tuned communication system. When the delicate balance of hormones is disrupted from its usual rhythm, it affects energy levels, sleep quality, weight and much more. Even our immune function is closely connected to oestrogen. Thus, the immune system also follows a monthly rhythm. We are more susceptible to infections around ovulation and before the start of menstruation. Fascinating, isn't it?

Things get even more interesting later in perimenopause: did you know that there are over 34 symptoms associated with menopause? Considering that hormone receptors are distributed throughout the body (from the brain, skin, gut, vagina to the joints and bones), it's no wonder. Did you also know that nutrition is almost always the first step to making lifestyle changes?

The Postmenopause Set is the perfect support for the natural decline in oestrogen during postmenopause. It combines the concentrated power of phytoestrogens with bioactive ingredients for hormonal balance from menopause onwards. Hormone-free, 100% plant-based, with no additives.

For more well-being

Many symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can be effectively treated through nutrition, stress management, sleep hygiene, exercise, plant-based remedies and micronutrients. A healthy diet improves concentration, sleep, digestion and skin complexion. It also offers the reward of a lower risk of diseases and reduced inflammatory processes.

1. Plant-Rich Diet: Important for nutrients like vitamin C, E, K, B6, B12, magnesium, calcium, zinc and selenium that are necessary for hormonal balance. Include vegetables, plant-based proteins and healthy fats in your diet. Healthy fats are essential for proper hormone function!

Orient yourself towards a Mediterranean diet: fruits, vegetables, plenty of legumes like beans and lentils, olive oil, fish, (fermented) dairy products, few eggs and poultry and minimal red meat. Prepare everything as fresh and vitamin-preserving as possible.

Make sure to regularly consume phytoestrogens, bitter substances, gut-friendly, satiating fibre and probiotics. Studies have shown the effectiveness of all of these for various hormone-related symptoms. When you can, try to avoid sugar, fast carbohydrates, unhealthy fats and alcohol.

2. Cruciferous Vegetables & Spices: Dark, leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower or radishes are a must. They contain compounds like sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol, which support oestrogen balance. What's great about cruciferous vegetables is that they also contain a large amount of bitter substances, important for digestion and nutrient absorption. You can also add plenty of herbs and spices in your cooking. They are rich in antioxidants and fight inflammation.

3. Micronutrients: First, meet your needs through food and then supplement with high-quality supplements where necessary. The body requires vitamins and minerals daily. It can store fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E) but not water-soluble vitamins (Vitamin C, all B vitamins). Among minerals, magnesium, iron and selenium are of great importance. Ideally, have the most important nutrients regularly measured during your medical check-up.

4. Document Your Symptoms: What helps you and what harms you? Listen to your body and recognise the connections between your diet, lifestyle and your symptoms. Prioritise eating and doing what makes you feel best.

5. Reduce Stress: Stress releases cortisol, which can disrupt all sex hormones over time. Reduce stress, for example, through deep breathing. Exercise has a proven impact on reducing stress, depression, anxiety and sleep problems.

Lastly: Avoid processed foods. Cook your meals at home and stay hydrated. Ideally, drink 2-3 litres of water daily and unsweetened herbal teas.
