The experience of menopause varies from person to person. There are a wide range of symptoms that can last for as little as a few months for some extremely lucky people, to over a decade for others. One factor that impacts almost everyone that goes through menopause is the negative effect that it can have on one’s immune system. Menopause triggers responses in the body that can make you vulnerable to outside invaders, and you can feel even worse from falling ill in addition to menopausal symptoms.
How does it work?
While it might not seem like menopause should or could weaken the immune system, it can in some folks. Part of menopause is the changing of hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone. The imbalance and changing levels of hormones can weaken the body’s response to outside factors, including attacks from invaders that will make you feel under the weather. The body maintains a sensitive balance that enables it to function at optimal levels, and even a natural change like menopause can throw the body into a downward spiral that makes you feel vulnerable and unwell.
Symptoms of menopause
Hot flashes are the most legendary of all menopausal symptoms, and perhaps one of the most uncomfortable. The worst aspects of menopause don’t end there, though. A range of symptoms can occur, including:
- Weight gain
- Change of appetite
- Low energy
- Low libido
- Night sweats
- Insomnia or trouble sleeping
- Increased stress or “mood swings” from hormonal imbalance
All of these symptoms, either alone or combined, can contribute to a weakened immune system and immune response.
ImmPower’s key ingredient is active hexose correlated compound, or AHCC. AHCC is made from a hybridized mushroom extract that supports Natural Killer (NK) cell activity. Menopause wreaks havoc on the body, causing it to be more vulnerable to outside invaders to the immune and other bodily systems. By boosting NK Cell activity, the body will be better able to fight off any problems related to menopause or menopausal factors.
Sleep is also an important factor in fighting off foreign invaders. The body restores and recharges itself during sleep, and if you can’t fall asleep or get enough restful sleep, you are less likely to be able to fight off outside invaders that want to attack your immunity.
