Exercise can reduce the amount and intensity of hot flushes experienced during the menopause, according to a study published today in The Journal of Physiology.

Exercise that makes you hot, sweaty and fitter reduced the severity of hot flushes by minimising the symptoms that occur during a hot flush, such as the amount of sweating and elevations in skin, as well as blood flow in the brain. In contrast, the women who remained sedentary reported very little differences in hot flush severity.
