Menopause represents a time for change in nutritional requirements. For example good iron levels previously required are now far less important and women need worry less about getting plenty of iron from their diet. However maintaining a healthy bone density with appropriate nutrition becomes increasingly important as falling oestrogen levels increases the risk of bone-density loss.

Optimal levels of calcium, magnesium and other minerals are needed to ensure healthy bones. Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K and plant-derived phyto-nutrients are also important. Foods rich in the plant phyto-oestrogens such as pulses, beans and soya are believed to assist in maintaining the hormonal balance. Weight-bearing exercise, such as regularly walking, is important for bone density.
