Estrogen

Estrogen is the female sex hormone. Before menopause, the ovaries produce estrogen. Low levels of estrogen have been linked to osteoporosis, arteriosclerosis, declining cognitive function and increased risk for Alzheimer's disease. Estrogen replacement therapy has been shown to decrease incidences of osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis, improve cognitive function and increase life span.

Estrogen's anti-aging benefits may include a decrease in osteoporosis, decrease in heart attacks and strokes, improved memory and cognitive function, reduced risk and slowing of Alzheimer's reversal of thinning of skin and drying of mucous membranes and increased life span.

A study reported in 1997 in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that post-menopausal women using estrogen experience as much as a 50 percent reduction in osteoporosis, heart attack, stroke, reversal of thinning of the skin and mucous membrane, significant reduction and possibly reversals in Alzheimer's disease and extended life span.

Side Effects and Contraindications: Conflicting information exists as to whether estrogen replacement therapy increases the risk of breast cancer, but some researchers indicate that combined estrogen-progestin therapy may eliminate this risk.

Similarly, some studies indicate an increase in risk of developing endometrial cancer when using estrogen replacement. Again, it seems that co-administration of progestin may decrease this risk.
