Menopause begins with a marked change in a woman’s neuroendocrine system. In fact, that change takes place in the very “backbone” of the neuroendocrine system. That change leads to closure of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis.
A functioning hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis serves as the chief means by which the brain can communicate with the endocrine glands. In a pre-menopausal woman, the hypothalamus produces GNRH, which stimulates the pituitary gland to put out FSH and LH. The FSH and LH cause the woman’s ovaries to produce estrogen.
Upon the onset of menopause, a woman’s hypothalamus ceases to send out GNRH. Her pituitary no longer releases FSH and LH. Her ovaries stop producing estrogen. A woman often feels the effects of these neuroendocrine changes. She starts to get an occasional migraine headache.
A menopausal woman can avoid painful migraines by taking Amberen. Unlike the supplements used to treat menopausal symptoms, Amberen pills do not need to be swallowed on a daily basis. The woman who has chosen to use Amberen must ingest the Amberen capsules during two intermittent periods of the year. Each of those periods is three months long.
More than forty years of research have pointed to what extent the use of Amberen offers advantages over the use of traditional supplements. Amberen prevents the hypothalamus from mimicking the diminished function that is associated with an aging neuroendocrine system.. The woman who elects to use Amberen can maintain an optimal hormonal balance.
