Eating Well for PMS

Many women put up with mood swings, weight gain, bloating and tearfulness every month, not realising that these unpleasant symptoms of premenstrual syndrome can be managed with simple diet and lifestyle changes.

Symptoms can be eased by eating more hormone-balancing foods such as:

  • Whole Grains
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Legumes
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables

And minimising hormone-disrupters such as:

  • Sugar
  • Refined Carbohydrates
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol

A multi-vitamin and mineral complex will provide useful nutrients such as Vitamin B, zinc and magnesium.  All of which support hormonal balance.  Many PMS suffers also choose to supplement their diet with herbs such as dong quai, angus castus, black cohosh or milk thistle which have been researched for their role in maintaining good reproductive and hormonal health.
