Metamorphosis!

 

Hi there!

 

According to an older analysis of women’s life in rural
Greece; reportedly they suffered fewer menopausal
symptoms than women in other western countries.

Also they held a more positive frame of mind regarding ageing.

 

We all want to have energy and enthusiasm to enjoy our life.
We all want a high degree of individual freedom.
Although a small percentage of the level of our health
depends on heredity, good and balanced nutrition is the
foundation of Optimal Health.

 

There are lots of recommendations which describe the
benefits of super foods; but it is very hard and confusing
for any woman to decide which foods are the most
suitable for her.

 

After researching the subject of nutrition in detail,
I have concluded that the following — easy to find and
incorporate in our diets,  foods and nutrients — are the
most suitable for women in middle age and above.
