Natural Estrogen May Improve Cognition for Alzheimer's Disease Patients

Good morning, everyone! A little "brain food" for this morning's post.

Check out this article from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's website. A small study done at UW has shown that women with mild to moderate cognitive impairment from Alzheimer's Disease may benefit from wearing an estradiol patch (most often known as Climera or Vivelle Dot) for a period of three months. The findings indicate that natural estradiol (not to be confused with Premarin or Prempro, which are drugs and not natural) may have protective effects on the brain. That's good news for those of us who are hormonally balanced!

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July-----be safe, make memories! Hot as hell here in NC, time for me to head down to the pool for a workout before the crowds get there.
