  • B Vitamin Deficiencies Can Mimic Symptoms of Menopause
    Of all the vitamins your body needs, the B vitamins come in at the top of the list. And a deficiency in either B12 or B9, also known as folic acid, can increase hot flashes and even mimic them in non-menopausal women. If you’re experiencing night sweats or hot flashes, you may get some relief by increasing your folic acid intake. Inadequate B12 levels may also cause you to feel more rundown than normal. B12 keeps your nervous system functioning properly, is used to make red blood cells and DNA, and is one of many B vitamins that fights the fatigue that women often refer to as “brain fog” around menopause. Most of the time, your body gets what it needs from food, but during perimenopause you may struggle to meet all of your vitamin and mineral requirements. Taking a supplement can help plug the nutritional gap.
