Why gut health?
Gut health is considered integral to our overall sense of well being, but during perimenopause and menopause, there can be shifts in the bacterial composition of the microbiome (the collection of bacteria that live in your gut) These shifts can be a contributory factor in many of the of the unwanted symptoms of menopause.
However, by focusing on maintaining good gut health during this time can help to support you in alleviating these symptoms, such as ...
- Reduce Hot flushes
- Sleep better
- Protect Bone Density
- Alleviate bloating
- Manage anxiety & brain fog
- Support vaginal health

My name is Debbie, I am co founder of Hot Flush Club , menopause forum and I was suffering from severe bloating , constipation and increasing joint pain . I am so pleased at the relief in such a short space of time from this probiotic capsule and the bonus of better sleep means I will definitely add this to my menopause toolkit .. thank you 🙏
Hot flushes led me to The Better Gut and I haven’t looked back. Still journeying to menopause with a raft of symptoms, hot flushes starting was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I needed more than hrt, which hasn’t helped me much. The Better Gut has been a game changer. Hot flushes have stopped and I feel better in myself. The initial adjustment was disconcerting but stick with it. All levels out in a month or two, now feeling better and more like myself than I have in years. Incredible! Thank you, Jo and team!
I have tried many different approaches through my menapause and this probiotic has made a really different combined with HRT. I generally feel more balanced and myself and I am sure this is a result of better digestion, elimination and therefore regulation of my oestrogen levels. My sleep has improved too which has surprised me tbh. I have been taking HRT for a year and so know it is not the effect of this alone that is making me feel more balanced. I will definitely continue to take these supplements.
I have noticed a difference in my waist line, less bloated. Taking last thing at night but have to sit up for a while to digest the capsule, l do take with lots of water. Had a few urgent bowel movements that have taken me by surprise 😲. Definitely want to continue.
The first and most noticeable symptom was the foggy brain . Probably 2 weeks into the first pack. In the second pack now, I noticed less anxiety pre menstrual.
Some strains of bacteria in probiotics exacerbate my symptoms but Better Gut doesn’t contain these strains and my gut is lovely and calm as a result!
I am now 3 months in and glad I decided to do this length of trial. Feel much calmer, lighter and brighter. Still have a few hot flushes but that could be my central heating as well! Highly recommend and will definitely continue. I am perimenopausal and have had one period during this time with a 4 month gap between bleeds. No pain and much lighter flow. Previous periods have been very heavy and painful. Fingers crossed, this supplement may have helped
I'm halfway through my first packet of the probiotics. My awful anxiety symptoms experienced in morning are definitely eleviated. It also encourages me to eat in the morning when the anxiety is at its worst. I have the pro biotic with porridge. I'll keep on going with my three month course. Thank you
These are definitely the best probiotics I’ve tried. I’ve only been taking them a couple of weeks but I can honestly say they worked overnight to improve my gut and bowel health. I was taking an expensive brand before for at least a year and can’t really say I noticed any benefits, I was beginning to think probiotics were a waste of money. I can’t really comment yet on the improvements to my menopause symptoms, but I will update as I ordered a 3 month supply to give them a proper trial.
My meno symptoms, particularly bloating, have been at bay since starting this product. I’m a firm believer in gut health and want to continue taking this product.
I am 56 and have tried every supplement going to help with troublesome symptoms ! So i saw these on a liz earle live on instagram so decided to give these a try...I have been taking them for around 3 week's now and really happy to say that my sleep , mood and bloating have all started showing signs of improving ! so would definitely recommend trying these to all peri & menopausal women
I will definitely continue with these and will be re ordering.
I've been taking these for 3 week's now and my sleep has improved.. my stomach feels more at ease and less bloated and best of all my heavy mood is lifting ! very happy 😊
Been taking this supplement for 2 months now and symptoms of perimenopause are a lot better. Still having a few hot flushes but everything else has greatly improved
In only 6 weeks of taking The Better Menopause, my hot flushes have reduced significantly. After a surgical menopause after cancer, my hot flushes were one of the most distressing, stubborn and disruptive symptoms. I literally thought they wd never go but they started to improve within 2 weeks of starting. My sleep is also better quality and digestion more stable. Overall this is the best supplement I have tried for my menopause symptoms and I am now recommending it to all my patients, friends and family. Thank you!
I've just completed my first month but already I'm feeling more like me. The tired, foggy brain has disappeared and I am not getting bloated and uncomfortable as much as I was previously. Well worth it, just for that!
This is when your periods stop before the age of 45, naturally or due to surgery or chemotherapy. Right now there are around 110,000 women in the UK living with effects of premature menopause. Maintaining good gut health during this time can help to support your hormonal balance and overall wellbeing, potentially helping to alleviate symptoms and promoting better absorption of essential nutrients.
Typically you can start to experience symptoms of the perimenopause in your early 40s. Often, one of the first symptoms experienced is increased anxiety and a reduced ability to deal with everyday stress. Additionally, interrupted sleep patterns can leave you feeling tired and low. Your gut and brain are in constant communication and so good gut health can support you in your mental health and wellbeing during this time.
Officially menopause is reached when you have not had a period for 12 months. But like everything in menopause your journey is individual and whilst many women might find relief from symptoms at this point, others may find their symptoms can last a little longer as their bodies adjust to the hormonal change that has occurred. A balanced diet, rich in fibre and fermented foods can be beneficial at this stage.
Reaching post menopause is a milestone with its benefits and challenges. Freedom from monthly cycles and the risk of unplanned pregnancy can be liberating - Many can wrestle with physical changes and health concerns. However, through all of these transitions many women find empowerment, viewing this stage as an opportunity for self discovery and rejuvenation, with many discovering a newfound confidence.
