    Hormones can play an incredibly important role in a woman's life. In the fertile years they protect our heart, our circulatory system and our bones. But when we're in our mid-forties, hormone levels start to drop slowly. The protection is thus much less. And this often also causes unpleasant symptoms on a physical, psychological and emotional level.If that the estrogen and progesterone production decreases further, you can also experience menopausal symptoms, with symptoms such as hot flashes, depression, vaginal dryness, insomnia and fatigue. And as everyone understands, these kinds of severe symptoms have a lot of influence on the quality of your life. But this also affects the life expectancy with regard to chronic diseases of our hearts, vessels and bones.

    Fortunately, we see that a healthy lifestyle, with an emphasis on exercise, positively influences these symptoms. So there is plenty of hope! In this book, Cycle experts Dorenda van Dijken and Janneke Wittekoek want to make women aware of their body and health, and especially of what they can do about it themselves when they get older. And you shouldn't just start a more healthy lifestyle when you are fifty, but rather much earlier.Read everything about In 'Hart & Hormonen - Fit de overgang in' you can read all about what you can do from the age of 40 to start this later period as fit as possible, and to age as healthy as possible.
