For Margaret Josephs, wellness is a top priority. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member recently opened up about her hormone replacement journey in the May issue of New You.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

“I am very concerned with health,” Margaret explained to the publication. “I am constantly taking care of myself.” To do so, she has cut “a lot of dairy” from her diet and goes for walks, rides a Peloton, and engages in exercise. Although Margaret has a healthy and active lifestyle, she noted, “When you become a woman of a certain age, you have to do other things.”

One of the “other things” Margaret started doing is taking OmegaXL, an omega-3 supplement. While she said the capsules have “really changed everything,” another medication has made her feel “so much better.”

“What has truly improved my life is hormone replacement,” Margaret revealed. “Many women for years weren’t doing hormone replacement, and they were fearful of cancer. However, after going through menopause, just the beginning of it, within the first two months of having hot flashes, brain fog, moodiness, and several other symptoms, I said, ‘This is not for me.’ There’s no reason women have to suffer.”

Her solution: “I immediately went and did my research and got hormone pellets, which has taken care of me,” she said. “I felt so much better!”
