This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Lumebox, and AquaTru. Women can spend up to 40% of their lives in menopause, and we know that they often experience changes in their mood, cognition, and overall brain health during this time. But these changes aren’t discussed openly or discussed with no helpful solutions, leaving women feeling hopeless, alone, or unsupported. Today’s guest is a brain researcher here to shed light on the changes during this time and what we can do to support women entering this phase.  Today, on the Dhru Purohit Show, Dhru sits down with Dr. Lisa Mosconi to discuss what happens to a woman’s brain when she goes through menopause and the connection to Alzheimer’s disease.
