Estrogen in older women.
Menopause is associated with a relatively abrupt decline in the ovarian production of estrogen that results in a state of estrogen deficiency. This estrogen deficiency state is associated with an accelerated expression of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, urogenital atrophy, dermal ageing, an increased expression of colorectal cancer, an alteration in the expression of breast cancer that results in more malignant forms of the disease, and the loss of neurons from the brain that is associated with a more rapid decline in cognitive function, balance, and an earlier expression of Alzheimer's disease. Macular degeneration and cataract formation may be additional consequences of the estrogen deficiency state. Thus the estrogen deficiency state may be characterized as a state of accelerated ageing. The abrupt transition from the reproductive state of multiple estrogen-dependent neural systems within the brain may affect their function as manifested by the typical menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, mood changes, sleep disturbance, and cognitive impairment. This transition may trigger a cascade of events that contributes to the acceleration of brain ageing and the expression of neurodegenerative processes as Alzheimer's disease. This article discusses the use of estrogen to prevent these age-related changes.
Boron which is in this body oil is a mineral that is found in food such as nuts and the environment. People take boron supplements as medicine.
Boron is used for boron deficiency, menstrual cramps, and vaginal yeast infections. It is sometimes used for athletic performance, osteoarthritis, weak or brittle bones (osteoporosis), and other conditions.
How does it work?
Boron seems to affect the way the body handles other minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It also seems to increase estrogen levels in older (post-menopausal) women and healthy men. estrogen is thought to be helpful in maintaining healthy bones and mental function. Boric acid, a common form of boron, can kill the yeast that causes vaginal infections. Boron may have antioxidant effects.
