*Hormone therapy doesn’t prevent Alzheimer’s disease in much as it reduces greatly the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. There are studies that show that if you take estradiol and progesterone at least 10 years before the onset of any symptoms of Alzheimer’s, you can reduce your risk by as much as 85%.
*Other things, of course, play a role including fish oil, staying active, staying healthy, exercise but the hormones play a significant role. Another hormone that plays a significant role in the reduction of the risk of Alzheimer’s is testosterone. Testosterone has been shown in both men and women to prevent the formation of amyloid plaque in your brain. That also helps prevent Alzheimer’s.
Needless to say, that the use of hormones gives you a better quality of life so you’re also more likely to exercise and to participate in life.
