Brain health is important during menopause because women may experience changes in cognitive function, including memory, concentration, and mood. The hormonal changes that occur during menopause, such as a decline in Oestrogen levels, can affect brain function and may contribute to these changes.
Oestrogen plays a key role in maintaining brain health by promoting neuronal growth, enhancing synaptic function, and improving blood flow to the brain. Therefore, a decline in Oestrogen levels during menopause may contribute to cognitive decline, including memory impairment and mood changes, such as anxiety and depression.
In addition to hormonal changes, menopausal women may also experience other factors that can impact brain health, such as sleep disturbances, stress, and lifestyle factors like diet and exercise. Sleep disturbances are common during menopause and can lead to daytime fatigue and cognitive impairment. Stress can also affect brain function and contribute to mood changes and cognitive decline.
The great news is, if we address these changes during the Perimenopause phase, studies show the brain adapts to it’s new norm well!
