How a Mediterranean diet can support menopausal women

Menopause nutritionist Charlotte Hunter details how the diet can be beneficial for those going through menopause. "The Mediterranean diet may hold the key to alleviating menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and insomnia, but its benefits extend far beyond that by protecting heart health, bone density, and brain function," Charlotte explains. "By including a variety of plant-based foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, coupled with olive oil, dairy, and lean meat, the Mediterranean diet also offers protection against inflammation and oxidative stress."
