More estrogen when you are young could mean that you will be healthier as you age. Having children younger is a good thing since it permanently changes the rate of apoptosis in the whole body and in organs such as the breasts and heart. So how did you spend your early years, pregnant or on birth control pills. It does matter. Our sex hormones are indications of being alive, we can reproduce, our hearts are healthy, our brains are working and our nervous system is optimal. This begins to fall apart after menopause. And in some cases, even before hitting menopause.
Our sex hormones have an effect on our neurotransmitters so if we lose them what happens to acetylcholine, noradrenalin, adrenalin, serotonin, gluatamate, GABA, histamine to name a few; other substances less talked about that hormones can affect include aspartate, nitric oxide, substance-P, beta endorphin, enkephalin, somatostatin, vasopressin, adenosine triphosphate, prolactin, angiotensin II, oxytocin, gastin, cholecystokinin, thyrotropin, neuropeptide-Y, insulin, glucagon, calcitonin, neurotensin, bradykinin. Dopamine. Besides these there are other neurotransmitters like exitatory amino acids: I-glutmate, I-aspartate, I-cystein, I-homocystein, and inhibitory amino acids like GABA, Glycine, B-alanine, and taurine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=09eVouoCLaw
With natural estrogen replacement, given cyclically, in high, rhythmic doses, brain cells live, calcium loss stops, homocysteine production lowers, C-reactive protein is lower progesterone receptors appear. The benefits of this is less alzheimers and less heart disease, less breast cancer and less autoimmune disease.
