Menopause impacts half the global population yet remains overlooked by both society and scientific research.

For women menopause is a key part of the aging process and research now shows that hormones are very influential in determining biological age (the rate at which your cells are aging and functioning).

Estrogen is thought of as a sex hormone, but estrogen receptors are found on many cell types, meaning estrogen is important for many critical biological functions, including:

      • Supporting cognitive function
      • Supporting cardiovascular function
      • Supporting bone health
      • Support muscle function
      • Supporting energy production and mitochondrial function
      • Regulate circadian rhythms
    •  

As a result, the loss of estrogen during menopause can cause a wide variety of symptoms.

There are now 48 recognised symptoms of menopause, which all begin with key changes at a cellular level

Therefore, maintaining and supporting cellular health should be a priority for those going through perimenopause or menopause.


 

NAD+ is a critical cellular molecule that supports healthy aging. NAD+ levels decline with age, and this is a driver of the cellular aging process. NAD+ has many functions within the cell but the most important are:

  • Cellular energy production- we depend on NAD+ to convert the nutrients in our food into cellular energy
  • Cellular health - NAD+ is responsible for switching on important health and cellular maintenance processes

Increasing NAD+ levels with supplements can increase energy levels and combat fatigue as NAD+ is essential to the production of cellular energy in the mitochondria.
