Female Age Group 45 - 65

The female body needs additional dietary support during the menopause, which, in western nations, occurs on average at age 51.


As well as the menopause, several other important health issues need consideration, such as bone health, digestive processes, absorption of nutrients and the ability of the immune system to respond to detrimental bacteria, as well as some viruses that can enter the gut.


This is an age of change that affects both mental and physical resources.


Contains one of each of the following:


GTF Chromium / Joint & Bone Support / Zinc and Copper / Omega 3 Fish Oil / Multi Antioxidant with Co-Q10 / Magnesium / Multi-Vitamins and Minerals

The female body needs additional dietary support during the menopause, which, in western nations, occurs on average at age 51. As well as the menopause, several other important health issues need consideration, such as bone health, digestive processes, absorption of nutrients and the ability of the immune system to respond to detrimental bacteria, as well as some viruses that can enter the gut. This is an age of change that affects both mental and physical resources.

It is therefore a time when it is important to recognise and pay diligent attention to dietary needs, taking simple steps such as ensuring that potassium-rich foods are plentiful with cooked vegetables, fruits and raw salads. Potassium helps to balance sodium levels, and reduce this mineral’s potentially less desirable effects on heart function, bone health, mood and emotions, and water retention. 

Both Females and Males of this age group start to lose the full range of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. These beneficial bacteria are very important to the immune system, and comprise almost 90% of the digestive tract’s flora. They are responsible for optimal processing and absorption of healthy food nutrients. They are also responsible for the production of several important vitamins among the vitamin B group of nutrients, as well as vitamin K, a valuable antioxidant that helps protect the liver and boost the immune system. 
Maintaining good bone density is prudent at this age, and women unfortunately become more susceptible to bone loss than men, so there is a need to support bone tissue as much as possible.

Hot flushes are a frequent discomfort during the menopause, affecting up to 75% of women. This age group also experiences a reduction in the elasticity of arteries and other blood vessels, and can become more susceptible to varicose veins. 
Before you start

We recommend that you undertake our Detox Formula which will cleanse your body and aide your guts ability to absorb the nutrients within the Disease formula. It will also help replienish the intestinal tract with healthy flora and enhance your overall health and wellbeing.

Additional Comment

  • As part of a healthy lifestyle, it is well understood that smoking is deleterious to good health.
  • Being aware of appropriate weight management is also well understood. 
  •  Less well discussed in relation to good health, however, is the importance of our feelings and emotions. Lack of self-esteem is so often associated with poor eating and lifestyle habits. All of us have positive aspects to our life, and focusing on these will improve our well-being. 
  •  It is important that attention is paid to the balance between acid-forming and alkali-forming foods. The optimum balance is around 60% alkali-forming and 40% acid-forming. [See Acid-Forming and Alkali-Forming Food Charts and Guidelines on this site].] 
  • Adopt a diet based on organic wholefoods, vegetables, fruits and grains.
  • Raw foods such as salads and fruits should be about 20% of the daily food intake for optimum health benefits.
  • There is benefit in eating in a specific order: fresh ’live’ foods first such as salads to prepare the digestive system. Next follow cooked vegetables, then proteins. Anything starchy should be last. Eating in this order ensures food enters the digestive system in order of digestion time. 
  • Chew foods slowly and thoroughly, as this increases their nutritional benefits, particularly as we get older. 
  • Research has shown that reducing intake of dairy products in later life is beneficial. 
  • It is best to reduce red meat within the diet to occasional intake. As a general guide, the best meat sources are lamb, and with regard to poultry, properly-fed and organically-reared chicken. 
  • White fish are generally the better option. Coastal fish such as mackerel are best reduced, as they tend to contain more of the undesirable toxic pollutants. 
  • As the years progress it is sensible to reduce the total intake of refined sugars.
  • Avoid dehydration - take plenty of fresh water. Good quality still mineral water from a glass container is the superior form; though a good tap filter is also satisfactory. 
    During exercise, the body loses up to 3 litres and it is good to remember that muscles are composed of 70% to 75% water.
    Adequate water intake is known to help reduce the feeling of tiredness and fatigue.
    Increased intake of water can help to reduce weight.
  • Foods cooked in aluminium cookware reduce water’s ability to be used by the body.
  • Avoid high intake of beverages containing caffeine, e.g. excess coffee, artificially sweetened fizzy (carbonated) and still drinks, and soft drinks high in sugars ending in ’-ose’ such as ’sucrose’, ’glucose’ and ’fructose’.
  • Take alcohol only in moderation as it can aggravate negative symptoms. Good quality organic wines can contribute to good health, spirits, beers and lagers less so. Organic red or white wine can be taken, but no more than 1 glass a day is suggested. Spirits should be avoided for a period of at least four months after dietary reform, and beer kept to an absolute minimum. 
  • Take exercise as much as possible out of doors in clean air. Prolonged exercise in air conditioning with artificial lighting should be no more than an hour at one time. 
    Isotonic exercise has been found beneficial in reducing muscle weakness. 
  • Sunlight has a beneficial effect on the whole person, and is also known to alleviate the experience of fatigue that can also occur with extended periods of exposure to artificial lighting. 
    Wearing sunglasses can reduce energy levels, as they block out some beneficial rays that can actually enhance energy. Men should try to avoid pink tinted glasses.
  • Try to obtain cosmetics that are not full of chemicals. There is a saying: "If you can’t eat the ingredient safely, then it may be best not to put it on your skin."
  • Avoid shampoos and soaps containing Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
  • Antiperspirants are usually applied to help reduce body odour. However, these preparations contain aluminium, which actually gets absorbed into the body. This metal is known to produce many undesirable toxic side effects.
  • The enzyme Bromelain, of benefit to women in the 45-65 age group, is found in pineapple, but only when this fruit is ripe. For one month in four throughout the year, the fruit should be eaten including the stalk, as this contains the majority of the bromelain.

Additional Help & Support 
Regular eye tests and dental check ups are advisable. As skin elasticity and general condition tend to decline with age, it is sensible to consider dietary intake more closely. Several of the vitamin B complex group decline as the years progress, as we manufacture less and less within our digestive system. Vitamin D is also known to be in decline for many women.

Q: Why are foodstate supplements in lower dosage?

Ans: It’s because they are much better absorbed used and retained than ordinary supplements. Our Calcium for example is 30mg whereas most inorganic forms are up to 1000mg. Human adults need 30mg per day of food calcium so that is what we provide, rather than 1000mg of inorganic calcium that is very difficult to absorb

 

Q: Can I take foodstate supplements if I am yeast intolerant?

Ans. Absolutely. We use nutritional yeast as a growing medium for several of our products because it is such an effective, nutritionally complete growing medium. There is no hint whatsoever of yeast in the finished product, it is completely removed during manufacture and is entirely safe even for people who are highly yeast intolerant
