Luteinizing Hormone can Affect Postmenopausal Health

Luteinizing hormone (LH) is produced in the pituitary gland and stimulates the production of estrogens and androgens. With age, LH levels rise in both men and women, potentially affecting cognition and even increasing the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Moreover, in postmenopausal women, higher LH levels are linked to lower lean body mass and accelerated bone loss, especially during the menopausal transition. However, low LH in postmenopausal women might increase the risk of metabolic syndrome.

Various interventions, including physical activity, resistance training, and ashwagandha supplementation, have shown the potential to influence LH levels and alleviate some related symptoms.
