Prevent PMS with yogurt
Up to 80 percent of women will struggle with premenstrual syndrome and its uncomfortable symptoms, report Yale
researchers. The reason: Their nervous systems are sensitive to the ups and downs in estrogen and progesterone that occur naturally every month. But snacking on 2 cups of yogurt a day can slash these symptoms by 48 percent, say
researchers at New York ’s Columbia University . “Yogurt is rich in calcium, a mineral that naturally calms the nervous system, preventing painful symptoms even when hormones are in flux,” explains Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a professor of gynecology at Yale University.
The uncomfortable symptoms of PMS and menopause...need I say more? Women deal with
it, but it doesn’t have to be so bad. We can reduce the symptoms naturally by using some diet tips and if needed, herbs and supplements.
To reduce PMS symptoms:
Try taking calcium and magnesium supplements regularly.
Reduce sugar and salt couple days before your cycle.
Increase fish and beans in your diet.
Eat yams-sweet potatoes and dates regularly.
Try royal jelly 2-3 times a week.
Use couple of leafs of dandelion in your salad daily or take it in capsule 2-3 days before your period, stop on the second day.
In severe cases, Evening Primrose oil helps with the symptoms, but it might have side effects such as mild diarrhea if you have sensitive digestive system or migraine, if you’re prone to it.
