How Hormones Affect Your Memory

How Hormones Affect Memory

Forgetfulness and cognitive decline are some of the most commonly reported symptoms of menopause. In fact, perimenopausal women were 1.4 times as likely to report forgetfulness compared to pre­menopausal women. But why?

Your estrogen levels have a direct impact on your brain’s neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. These neurotransmitters help modulate your mood, your cognitive function (thinking and memory) and enable you to manage stress.

In menopause, estrogen levels decline and the brain’s neurotransmitters become out of balance, leading to mood disorders, brain fog, and short-term memory issues. However, with the use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, AgeRejuvenation is able to reestablish hormonal balance and improve your quality of life!

Individual results vary by patient. Ask your AgeRejuvenation practitioner about your specific health concerns.
