Many of us (ladies) expect to feel moody around the same time every month thanks to PMS. Your cat paws will raise up, and you place a “don’t mess with me” sign on your forehead. It only takes one symptom to throw off your whole day. But there are actually a ton of foods that can provide you with healthy nutrients and help alleviate some of your PMS symptoms. Get ready to conquer your symptoms!
What is PMS? Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) has a wide variety of symptoms, including mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression. It’s estimated that as many as 3 of every 4 menstruating women have experienced some form of premenstrual syndrome. (Source: Mayo Clinic)
Some of the foods that help fight PMS are:
Dark chocolate contains substances that create a sense of euphoria. It can help alleviate cramps and give you an emotional kick, too.
This healthy brew may be another stress buster. One study found that folks who drank five cups a day were 20% less likely to get stressed than those who had less than a cup.
Canned Wild Salmon
Research showed that women with the highest intake of calcium and vitamin D are less likely to experience PMS symptoms. Canned wild salmon with edibles bones contains both nutrients.
When you use PMS as an excuse for your emotions, people don’t take your feelings seriously—and neither do you. So, make sure you nourish yourself with healthy nutrients to fight off any PMS symptoms.
