Caffeine and Menopause

October 13, 2014

Did you know that there is a link between caffeine and symptoms in post menopausal women?  As many as 85% of women experience hot flashes during menopause.   In a recent study, researchers found that women who used caffeine had significantly greater symptom scores for hot flashes and night sweats when compared to women who did not use caffeine, suggesting that decreasing caffeine use might result in decreased symptoms. Further research is warranted.
