Heart Disease and Menopause

Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, ChhC, AADP

Heart Disease Is The Leading Cause Of Death For Women In The U.S. , ESPECIALLY AT MENOPAUSE!

Although aging in general has a negative impact on vascular health, it varies between men and women.

In men, there is a gradual decline in vascular flexibility over time, while in women there is a drop during all phases of menopause and a dramatic drop after the final menstrual period. Estrogen receptor signaling is also an important aspect in endothelial function in women, and there is rapid change with both acute and long term loss of estrogen. The loss of testosterone with menopause may also contribute to impaired vascular function in menopause.

Estrogen’s effects on nitrous oxide are independent of chronological age, and is only related to menopausal status. Women who reach menopause at younger ages will have more years of decreased nitrous oxide and increased reactive oxygen species in their vessels.

In studies of vascular function and the impact of estrogen therapy, taking estrogen has a positive impact on vascular health. Additionally, improving and optimizing levels of nitric oxide (different from nitrous oxide), can also help restore functioning to the menopausal body for inflammation, oxidative stress, aging, mood and vascular health.

So, What's The Take Away? Estrogen Hormone Therapy And Testosterone Hormone Therapy For Improving Nitrous Oxide Levels And Food Therapy In The Form Of Beets And Other Foods For Improving Nitric Oxide Levels Improves Vascular Function Throughout All Phases Of Menopause.
