Menopause

CB1 and Hormone Therapy

Stethoscope on note book with Menopause words as medical concept

Hormone replacement therapy is used to reduce some of the symptoms of menopause. Although it can reduce problems like osteoporosis, hot flashes and depression, hormonal treatments come with risks including an increased likelihood of stroke and heart attack. Among those who use hormone therapy, scientists tend to believe there is a «critical window» where hormone replacement can reduce depression and the worsening memory associated with menopause. A new study from researchers in Xi’an, China, indicates that activating CB1 may prolong this window.
