Menopausal women may need to repeat information to counter memory loss

As women enter menopause, there is an increased likelihood that they will begin to suffer memory loss. While taking a natural anti-aging supplement may help, women of this age may also want to consider repeating information as they receive it.

A new study, conducted by researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center and the University of Illinois at Chicago, found that between one-third and two-thirds of participating women who were entering or undergoing menopause experienced memory issues of some kind. To help combat these effects, Miriam Weber, neuropsychologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center and head of the study, recommends that women repeat new information out loud, or have the person delivering the information repeat herself. "It will help you hold onto that information longer," said Weber.

On average, women enter into menopause at age 51, but some women will begin experiencing symptoms associated with menopause while still in their early or mid-forties. It is important for women to recognize these symptoms and take action to avoid the more damaging effects. Taking a natural anti-aging supplement may potentially help to combat memory loss, as can memory-strengthening activities, such as repeating information.
