The discomfort women experience during PMS occurs due to the hormonal fluctuations of estrogen and progesterone that take place in the female body throughout the menstrual cycle. Symptoms of PMS can be tamed with various methods. One of the most essential is a rationalization of nutrition.

These foods should be included in the diet during PMS:

  1. Vegetables and fruits rich in fiber (broccoli, spinach, tomatoes).
  2. Whole grain cereals rich in cellulose and B vitamins and contain a sufficient amount of complex carbohydrates.  
  3. Foods with calcium (sesame, basil, almonds, soybeans, beans) able to ease PMS symptoms.
  4. Vitamin D (mushrooms, greens, vegetable oils).
  5. Drinking a sufficient amount of water  
  6. Green tea with chamomile  
  7. Honey  
  8. Sources of zinc (chickpeas, lentils)  
  9. A little piece of dark chocolate for mood elevation.
