What vitamins do I need to take to prepare for menopause?

Answer: The multivitamin that makes the most sense for you is the Over50MV™ formula from dotFIT. We manufacture several formulas of multivitamins and minerals for different ages and activity levels. Menopause is triggered by a failure of the ovaries, which happens at an average age of a little over 50 years. We approach the menopause-nutrient issue with age in mind, since there are more changes with age than with menopause. Menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes, changes in libido and vaginal dryness are not relieved by any vitamins or minerals.  However, osteoporosis is more common with aging especially after menopause, so we recommend calcium and vitamin D to minimizing bone loss.
