If you have scanty periods, just grab a bar and you will have your flow. However, if you don’t wish to have a heavy flow, keep off.

2. Beetroot juice

Beetroots are rich in Iron, Potassium, Vitamin C among others which are all great for your health. All the same, drinking beetroot juice during your periods will worsen the flow.

3. Jaggery
