About Zinc and Menopause

Menopause, also known as climacteric, is the time in a woman's life when her menstrual periods stop and she is no longer able to have children. It is said to have occurred when a woman has not had a period for a year. This typically occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. Menopause occurs in all women.1

Zinc, in commerce also spelter, is a chemical element with symbol Zn and atomic number 30. It is the first element of group 12 of the periodic table. In some respects zinc is chemically similar to magnesium: its ion is of similar size and its only common oxidation state is +2. Zinc is the 24th most abundant element in Earth's crust and has five stable isotopes. The most common zinc ore is sphalerite (zinc blende), a zinc sulfide mineral. The largest mineable amounts are found in Australia, Asia, and the United States. Zinc production includes froth flotation of the ore, roasting, and final extraction using electricity (electrowinning).2

There have been 33,385 reported side effects for Zinc in the US. The 5 most reported: Nausea, Dyspnoea, Anosmia, Diarrhoea, Ageusia.

The average price we found for Zinc products was $10.74. The lowest price we found was $10.74

What researchers say about Zinc as Menopause treatment

Researchers report:

  • We measured the effect of calcium carbonate and hydroxyapatite on whole-body retention of [Zinc]-65 in 11 and iron-59 in 13 healthy, [Menopause] women.1
  • Serum concentrations of magnesium, [Zinc] and copper were measured in [Menopause] women with osteoporosis (n = 40), osteopenia (n = 40) or normal bone mineral density (n = 40) as classified on the basis of the T-score of the femur neck and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry results.2
  • The Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found low iron and [Zinc] intakes and low serum ferritin in many [Menopause] women....Therefore food frequency history, serum ferritin, plasma [Zinc], plasma [Zinc] disappearance, and [Zinc] turnover rate were measured in healthy [Menopause] women.3
