The menstrual cycle with PMS
This is not how it has to be. There is a range of vitamins and minerals which can help alleviate these symptoms and improve your general health during the different stages of your cycle.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium deficiency is said to be the main cause of PMS. It reduces inflammation, regulates the stress response, and enhances GABA activity. Magnesium also aids in the manufacture of steroid hormones, including progesterone. It is often not possible to find in food sources.
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that regulates more than 200 different genes in the body. It is essential for both healthy insulin sensitivity and ovulation.
Vitamin B12 and folate work with vitamin C to help the body make new proteins. They are necessary for normal red blood cell and white blood cell formation, repair of tissues and cells, and synthesis of DNA. Both are nutrients that cannot be produced in the body and must be supplied by the diet. Vitamin K and Calcium are important for good bone health that is especially important for preventing osteoporosis. All included in daily vitamin and mineral regimen.
Omega-3 eliminates painful cramps, reduces inflammation, bloating, breast tenderness, symptoms of depression, and anxiety by supporting healthy mood balance and reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
Probiotics promote healthy gut bacteria which escorts estrogen out of the body and mitigates premenstrual symptoms. Can also help by improving digestive function and nutrient absorption
Zinc works by reducing keratin which keeps pores open. Zinc also kills bacteria, reduces inflammation, and lowers androgens
Vitamin B6 aids in reducing anxiety, fatigue, depression, bloating, and most PMS symptoms because it’s essential for the synthesis of both progesterone and GABA. It also reduces inflammation and assists with the healthy detoxification of estrogen.
Supplements can help boost the brain’s GABA levels and treat anxiety, stress, depression, and sleep problems. Helps to calm the mind when it starts to run wild with negative thoughts instantly.
