Menopause: The Science Behind the Symptoms

There are 48 recognised symptoms of the menopause, but do you know why they occur?

What is happening at a cellular level to cause these changes?

While estrogen is commonly known as a sex hormone, it also regulates many other important functions.

Estrogen receptors are found on the surface of many cells including in the brain, muscle, immune cells, and the mitochondria (which produce cellular energy).

These cells work optimally with high levels of estrogen, causing a wide range of consequences when levels drastically decline during menopause.

Dr Nichola Conlon was invited to share her scientific knowledge surrounding the menopause as part of the ‘Menopause: Continuing the Conversation’ programme, a collaboration with the British Menopause Society and ITN business.

Dr Conlon explains the Science Behind The Symptoms and what the latest science says can benefit those experiencing the menopause:

Menopause: The science behind the symptoms

NAD+ is an exciting new area of research for menopause – offering a solution for some of the most common menopause symptoms including:



Both NAD+ and estrogen contribute to mitochondrial function and normal energy production. During menopause, levels of these molecules become low leading to reduced energy production.

By increasing NAD+ energy production is increased.

Brain fog

Estrogen is important for optimal brain function and energy production in brain cells. NAD+ is also critical for energy production and supporting brain health.

By increasing your NAD+ levels you can increase cellular energy levels and support your brain.

Accelerated biological aging

Hormones are important in regulating biological age (the rate at which cells are aging and functioning), with recent studies showing that peri/menopause can accelerate aging and rapidly increase a woman’s biological age.

NAD+ is known to promote youthful cellular function and reverse biological age.

Nuchido Time+ A Whole System Approach to NAD+ Boosting


NAD+ supplements can help!

Nuchido TIME+ is a new, science-backed approach to increasing cellular NAD+ levels.

Created by a team of scientists, Nuchido Time+ has been carefully formulated with a combination of ingredients that restore the cell’s natural ability to make and recycle NAD+.

“I just wanted to report on my first month of using Nuchido TIME+. Very positive – energy levels good, cognitive performance noticeably improved especially concentration, creativity, short term memory, reaction speed, also some health benefits including lower inflammation (join pain in right hip almost completely gone) and some minor skin issues cleared up.”
