Regular exercise can reduce hot flashes in postmenopausal women

Good news for women using hormones to manage their menopause symptoms, as a study shows that regular exercise can not only help in reducing weight but also control the bothersome symptoms such as hot flashes.

Researchers from the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) found that with regular exercise, postmenopausal women achieved modest and significant reductions in their weight, body mass index and hot flashes were also effectively managed.

The study was published online in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

“Growing evidence indicates that an active lifestyle with regular exercise enhances health, quality of life and fitness in postmenopausal women,” said JoAnn Pinkerton, NAMS executive director.
