The Science Behind XO Jacqui

As women enter perimenopause and menopause, maintaining muscle mass and bone density becomes increasingly important. Experts often highlight the role of diet in managing the physiological changes during this time. Dr. Jane Smith, a leading endocrinologist specializing in women’s health, advises, “Incorporating high-quality protein and vital nutrients into your diet can significantly influence your overall health during menopause.” This approach is at the heart of XO Jacqui, which is formulated with science-backed ingredients to support women’s health.

Understanding the Ingredients of XO Jacqui Protein Powder

Brown Rice Protein: Ideal for maintaining lean muscle and supporting metabolic health, brown rice protein is a gentle, allergen-friendly option that aids muscle recovery and growth. Its high fiber content also helps manage blood sugar levels, crucial for hormonal balance during menopause.

Chasteberry: Traditionally used for hormonal support, Chasteberry is thought to help regulate estrogen and progesterone levels, easing menopause symptoms such as mood swings and hormonal fluctuations. Our Cacao Wild Yam and Blueberry Pomegranate both contain Chasteberry. Our Vanilla Greens does not for hormone sensitive women.

Monk Fruit: As a natural sweetener, monk fruit offers a healthy alternative to refined sugars, which can exacerbate hormonal imbalances and contribute to weight gain during menopause. It provides the sweetness you crave without the negative effects of sugar.

Kale: Rich in calcium and antioxidants, kale supports bone health and provides vital nutrients to help combat oxidative stress, which increases during menopause.

Sea Moss: This marine ingredient is packed with over 90 essential minerals and vitamins, supporting thyroid function due to its high iodine content, crucial for women as they age.

Blueberries and Pomegranate: Both fruits are high in antioxidants and phytoestrogens, beneficial for heart health and maintaining hormonal balance. They also promote brain health, combating the cognitive decline some women experience during menopause.

Wild Yam: Often used in natural hormone replacement formulations, wild yam contains diosgenin, which can help in managing estrogen levels, aiding in both PMS and menopause relief.

Cacao: Beyond its rich flavor, cacao is a powerhouse of magnesium and flavonoids, known for boosting mood and protecting cardiovascular health, which can be of particular concern during menopause.

Balancing Protein Intake

While protein is essential, too much in one sitting can strain our digestive system, which becomes more sensitive during menopause. Dr. Anna Lee, a gastroenterologist, notes, “Women in menopause should aim for balanced meals that provide sufficient protein without overwhelming the digestive tract. About 20-30 grams per meal is ideal, depending on individual health needs.”

Reducing sugar and artificial ingredients is critical. These substances can disrupt hormonal balance and exacerbate menopause symptoms. XO Jacqui’s commitment to natural ingredients supports a healthy dietary pattern that minimizes these risks.
