Hormone Replacement Therapy May Lower Women's Risk of Dementia

Research finds that memory loss may be connected to falling estrogen levels

Memory loss associated with age related disorders like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is a serious concern, affecting millions of people across the globe. Researchers are constantly in search of ways to combat these issues, and one group that they’re making incredible headway with is women treated with hormone replacement therapy - a treatment offered at medical spas such as Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center.

Dr. Jill Goldstein of Harvard is the senior author of a revolutionary study recently published in the journal Menopause. The research uncovers new evidence about the relationship between estrogen levels, memory, and menopause. In it, 212 women and men participated in memory measurement activities, initially finding that the women scored higher than the men. Once menopause began, women whose estrogen levels dipped the fastest were most likely to see the effects of memory deficits.   

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has the potential to pull those estrogen levels back up to a status that will help women maintain their memory health through menopause. Of that prospect, Dr. Goldstein said, “It is critical to come back to the question of whether taking HRT early in the menopausal transition will help to maintain intact memory function later in life.”

Though there is more research to be done on how hormone replacement therapy can help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, this finding is encouraging. That’s particularly true given the advancements in HRT over the last two decades that have greatly reduced risks while maintaining positive effects.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy from Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center offers women a safe and proven way to combat the negative effects of menopause. Even more exciting is that research such as this groundbreaking study out of Harvard is constantly uncovering previously unknown benefits of mitigating estrogen loss.
