Hot flashes impair memory performance

Almost had it - now it's gone

If you’re having difficulty identifying the right word to express yourself clearly or remembering a story correctly, you may blame menopause.

A new study by The North American Menopause Society suggests that physiologic hot flashes are associated with decreased verbal memory.

In this new study, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to reveal exactly how the brain was behaving during a hot flash.

It revealed that the areas of the brain which control storing and retrieval of memories, are affected during physiologic hot flashes.

“This goes some way to explaining the frustrations of menopausal women.” says Walker-Wilson, lead researcher as MindfullyTrim, who was not involved in the study. “There is the sense of being physically out of control, because of the hot flashes. And the even greater worry of being mentally out of control, caused by not being able to remember things.”

An apple a day might help keep bothersome menopause symptoms away

New study finds that higher intakes of certain fruits and vegetables may lessen menopause symptoms, but some actually increase menopausal symptoms.

The consumption of fruits or a Mediterranean-style diet, characterized by a high content of vegetables, fruits, cereals, and nuts, was linked to fewer menopause symptoms and complaints.

However, some fruits and vegetables were shown to have an adverse effect, according to a study published in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

Specifically, citrus fruits seem to increase menopausal symptoms. Also dark green leafy vegetables and yellow vegetable were shown to worsen menopause symptoms.
