Women Who Enter Menopause Early May Age Faster Than Women In Whom Menopause Arrives Later, Study Suggests.
Here it is in black and white!! This is what we’ve been saying all along. This supports the idea that sex hormones (in this case estrogen) are necessary for all body functions and that decreases in or a lack of the hormone results in accelerated aging of all systems. So alzheimer’s, memory issues, skin wrinkling, hair loss, bone loss, metabolic aging (weight gain, hypertension, heart disease, cholesterol abnormalities, diabetes etc.), sexual aging, loss of sex drive etc etc…. Finally the science is catching up. Who wants to age rapidly?? The sooner hormone supplementation starts the better the reduction in the aging process. Many times this might be years before menopause.
Women need to choose providers that replace hormones carefully in a monitored fashion that mimics normal female hormone production. Popular methods such as creams and pellets are often not the best choices. We can help with this most sensitive time for women.
