While it's common knowledge that eating a balanced diet will benefit your overall health, it's especially important to do while going through menopause. Eating certain fruits and vegetables will increase estrogen levels. Women should consider also adding unsaturated fats such as olive oil, fish and avocados to their diets, as well as avoiding trans fats and processed foods. Additionally, adding omega-3s such seafood, nuts, seeds, and plant oils are linked to increased moods and lowers one's risk for depressive symptoms.
