Benefits of Running During Menopause

When you are going through the symptoms of menopause—vaginal dryness, night sweats, hot flashes and painful intercourse—you probably just want to lay in bed all day and do nothing. This, unfortunately, isn’t going to solve any of your symptoms. If you are looking for solutions, there are a few different things you can try.

Supplements, like Femininity, that are high in Omega 7 fatty acids can help symptoms like vaginal dryness. Hormone therapy is another option for dealing with symptoms. The last solution that you can adopt is surprising: running. Running has been proven to help menopausal women with their unpleasant symptoms.

Why Run?

In a 2006 Finnish study by Kirsi Mansikkamaki it was found that, “Physically active women showed higher quality of life, when compared to inactive women.” Another study, called the Melbourne Women’s Midlife Health Project, followed 438 women over eight years. In this study, women who reported exercising every day were 49 percent less likely to report hot flashes during subsequent follow-up appointments.

Physical activity has been shown to have a wide range of neuroendocrine responses in the hypothalamus. Increases in metabolites and norepinephrine occur in response to acute exercise. Exercise also leads to a lower resting heart rate, which can help with the menopausal symptom of a racing heart.

Running is great at relieving stress. This is one symptom that most women feel as they enter menopause. Many of the symptoms are uncomfortable and many women find themselves unprepared to deal with these annoyances. Starting a good exercise routine now with a mix of running and non-aerobic exercise will go a long way toward reducing troublesome menopausal symptoms.

The Time to Start Is Today

If you are currently going through menopause, don’t lose hope that you can find relief from your symptoms. There is a solution out there for you. Start exercising, eat healthy, and start taking a supplement to aid in reducing vaginal dryness, like Femininity™.

Femininity™ is made from Himalayan sea berries and have been tried and tested and found effective. Don’t just try and hide from the world, get out there and run your symptoms away.
