Essential Nutrients For Beautiful Skin

Perimenopausal and menopausal women require some specific nutrients to maintain optimum health. Even if a woman eats a wide variety of healthy foods during this time, she may still be missing some essential nutrients. The reason is because her body has shifted and the nutrients she believes she needs may not address the symptoms of perimenopause or menopause.
