Foods That Fight PMS

Are you suffering with premenstrual symptoms? Forty percent of women deal
with PMS so severe that it affects their daily routine. PMS symptoms can
include water retention, bloating as well as tender and/or slightly enlarged
breasts. PMS can even be so severe that they have been used as a legal defense
in murder cases! You can fight PMS by making small changes in your diet. It is
a double win because these foods help other areas of your health as well as
ridding yourself of those troublesome PMS symptoms.

Marvelous Magnesium

Add magnesium to your menu. In addition to reducing PMS symptoms, it helps
reduce water retention and helps to regulate serotonin, a mood balancer found in
the brain. Many food choices with magnesium are probably already in your diet:
peanut butter, brown rice and whole grain bread. Add beans, sunflower seeds,
spinach, wild salmon and cashews to knock out PMS.

Calming Calcium

PMS symptoms can include irritability. Most women know that calcium is
important for bone health, but has been founded to lessen the symptoms of PMS.
The recommended dosage is 1000 to 1200 milligram of calcium supplements on a
daily basis. Supplements are perfect for those with lactose intolerance. Most
women don’t. Remember, calcium is not only found in milk, cheese and yogurt.
It is also in broccoli, kale and white beans. Take control of your PMS symptoms
instead of it controlling you.

Give me an A

Vitamin A, that is. So instrumental for your vision health, skin health and
immune function, Vitamin A is also a warrior against PMS symptoms. Add a wide
variety of foods rich in this needed vitamin: sweet potatoes, carrots,
cantaloupe melons, eggs, apricots, mangos, peas, and broccoli. Eating healthy
has never been so good for you and your PMS!

Health-boosting B

Sometimes vitamins are overlooked as a way to lessen PMS. Whether you take
supplements or eat foods rich in B6, your health will be improved. You can
decrease PMS symptoms simply by eating some of the following foods: breakfast
cereals that are fortified and are whole-grain, garbanzo beans, extra lean beef,
white potatoes with skin, bananas, chicken breast and unsalted pistachio nuts.
Boost your health while working to alleviate your PMS.

Essential E

Vitamin E truly is an essential vitamin for your health, including PMS. In
addition to reducing PMS symptoms, it offers your body so many other benefits.
It has been shown to be effective in decreasing the risk of coronary artery
disease and contributes to an overall healthy circulatory system. So many
pollutants and processed foods leave residue of toxins in your body. Vitamin E
is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes those toxins. Delicious food choices
such as asparagus, avocado, egg, milk, almonds, hazelnuts, seeds and wholegrain
products are loaded with Vitamin E. Vitamin E provides a one-two punch against
coronary disease and PMS symptoms.
PMS can be alleviated through dietary
changes. The foods mentioned are so healthful and delicious. Fight the battle
against PMS symptoms and come out the winner.
