The menopause market was largely untapped up until recently. With more brands now focused on women's health, the global women’s health market size is expected to reach $56.8 billion by 2027, according to a report by Grand View Research.
The stigma around menopause is fading various expos showcase a number of products geared toward this demographic.
During this menopausal transition, which lasts about seven years, the body's production of estrogen and progesterone varies greatly. Bones become less dense, making women more vulnerable to fractures and the body begins to use energy differently, fat cells change, and women may gain weight more easily.
To help smooth the transition and ease hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, and mood changes, there are a number of options. Here are a few you can expect to come across at the Natural Products Expo West next week:
