2. Plant-Based Foods

Research indicates women who consume primarily plant-based meals experience fewer PMS symptoms. A crossover study by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Georgetown University School of Medicine noted participants who followed a low-fat, vegan eating regimen found remarkable relief from PMS. Eating plenty of vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, and seeds is a safe, natural way to obtain bioavailable nutrients that strengthen the reproductive system. Green vegetables contain high amounts of minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium that help calm emotions. These nutrients also reduce spasms. Dark green, leafy plants provide vitamin K, which is necessary to help curtail excess bleeding. These foods are also a source of fiber which helps maintain hormone balance.
