Menopause is the cessation of ovarian function. One of the primary jobs of the ovaries is to produce estrogen, and so when a woman transitions through menopause, she loses her estrogen and all of the hormonal rhythms that are foundational to female health. Being that estrogren is anti-inflammatory, and cardio- and neuro-protective, it is also essential to proper immune system functioning. It plays a critical role in the health of the gut microbiome. Virtually every cell in the female body has receptors for estrogen. Consequently, when a woman transitions through menopause, every organ and system in her body suffers.
