Menopause is the complete shutting down of the female reproductive system. The normal age range for the occurrence of menopause is somewhere between the age of 45 and 55. After menopause, women are more likely to have heart disease, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, etc.

A lack of estrogen in post-menopausal women prevents the absorption and utilization of calcium. Moringa as the richest source of calcium aids in reducing the effect caused by low estrogen level.
