This year I’ve really struggled with peri-menopausal symptoms. Well that’s what I think they are, or maybe its just life stresses and strains. Some of the worst symptoms have been poor sleep the next day, feel exhausted and anxious. Changes in my period, either lighter, heavier longer or shorter honestly I don’t know whats going to happen from one day to the next. Weight gain and mood changes like I’ve never experienced before, but different to normal hormonal ones, the best way I can describe it is an impending feeling of doom, real fear. I may sound dramatic but it’s honestly been quite a hard year. Life’s good, it’s just I’ve noticed lots of changes. For the last 30 days I’ve been taking Zenflore, one a day, they live on my desk so I don’t forget!
I do take a couple of other supplements, and have been for some time, ones that have been recommended to me over the years, and I recently – just over a month ago actually added Zenflore to my routine. I’ve been noticing some really positive differences since I started to take it, so thought I would share with you what I’ve noticed, as maybe you have similar symptoms.
Zenflore is a combination of a unique live culture 1714 Serenitas™ bacterial culture, with specially selected vitamins. Zenflore says it’s the complete support for your mind and body during busy and demanding times, helping combat stress related fatigue. This isn’t something marketed as far as I know at peri-menopausal person however some of the things I’ve been feeling and symptoms I have, have definitely improved, so I wanted to shout out about it.
Do I feel the quality of my sleep has improved?
This had been the thing I’ve noticed the most. At around the two-week stage of taking Zenflore I started to sleep all the way through the night to 7am (hurrah) and 10 days or so ago, my sleep has been deeper and I feel more rested when I wake. This alone would make this worth my continuing to take Zenflore, as I do think my lack of sleep has impacted me in so many ways, so I can’t tell you how much more ‘at peace’ I feel.
Changes to my hair and skin?
I can definitely see a difference in my hair – Amanda 47 (eek)
As regular readers will know I love trying out new beauty products, and with winter coming I’ve had to up my regime as my skin suffers this time of year. I haven’t seen any significant changes to my skin, but I have to my hair. I went to have my hair done last week, and my hairdresser even noticed a difference. She said it was is much better condition, and felt much thicker to her. She did ask me if I’d changed anything to my routine, and the only thing I’ve done really is add this supplement. She said to keep taking it, as it obviously suits me.
Am I less stressed, or tired?
The 1714-SerenitasTM culture was discovered and developed by PrecisionBiotics®, in partnership with scientists and clinicians from one of the world’s leading centres of research on the microbiome and the gut-brain axis. 1714-Serenitas has been clinically studied in people with everyday stress and has been shown to reduce the levels of our stress hormone, cortisol1. Clinical studies have also shown that this natural live bacteria increases the activity in the parts of the brain correlated with an improved ability to handle stress1. The B vitamins in Zenflore help support your energy and vitality.*
I do feel less stressed, and I’ve actually been put in a couple of quite stressful situations recently, and I have taken a deep breath and really coped with them well. It’s only now I am writing this I have sat back and thought about it. Usually those things would really effect my sleep, energy and anxiousness, and I’ve been absolutely fine.
I weighed myself this morning, and I’ve lost four lbs, over the last 30 days. I know it’s not much, but could show a bit of an influence in lots of things, like stress and mood eating, which I know I do. Zenflore does say that it can affect your appetite too, so maybe it’s that.
So overall, adding this as a supplement to my daily routine has definitely made an impact I feel rested, like I’ve been away on holiday would be the best way I could describe it. It seems such a positive impact, for what is an easy thing to take each day.
Zenflore is available to buy HERE, for £28.50 for a 30 day supply.
