Did you know?
During menopause, the level of estrogen in a woman’s body naturally decreases.
Nitric oxide, a compound in our bodies, works to expand blood vessels for better blood flow.
Nitric oxide is heavily dependent on estrogen production. When estrogen levels decrease, our arteries don’t fully dilate and our blood needs to pump harder to circulate the body, which can help lead to increases in blood pressure.
