Nutrition ?: Adding coconut oil and flax seed to your daily diet will have no effect from your age (46 ) or on the onset of menopause. Although the average for menopause is 54 or so, statistically, menses may not be regular over 40, as the ovaries require more stimulation to ovulate, which delays periods accordingly.
