Eat these 6 foods to fight PMS symptoms

It’s true! Cashew alleviates PMS symptoms in several ways.

Here are six women should add to their diet during that of the month.

  • Avocados

Get your groove on during that time of the month by adding avocado to your diet. If you are experiencing bloating, cravings and muscle cramps twist up your diet with avocado.

Avocado also contains four grams of protein, higher than other fruits, and is filled with vitamin K, different kinds of vitamin B (B-9, B-6, and B-5), vitamin C, and vitamin E-12. The potassium in avocado helps protect against muscle cramps, and it boosts feelings of satiety.

  • Dark Chocolate

You’ve probably been educated about the numerous health benefits you derive from eating dark chocolate. Well, ladies, the super food is good for you during that time of the month. PMS is usually associated with an increase in stress, which increases cortisol levels. That’s where dark chocolate is helpful.

Dark chocolate contains antioxidants that trigger the walls of your blood vessels to relax, lowering blood pressure and improving circulation.

  • Cashews

It’s true! Cashew alleviates PMS symptoms in several ways. Cashews are a great source of magnesium, providing 44 percent of our daily requirement in just a half of a cup. Cashews are also high in calcium, another important nutrient to help with PMS.

  • Bananas

Bananas are rich in potassium, which can help relieve menstrual cramps before and during a menstrual cycle. Potassium is also good for mood.

Bananas also have melatonin, which aids sleep and regulates our body’s natural rhythms, as well as iron, which can help fight the fatigue associated with PMS.

  • Salmon

Take it from us. Fat is good for your body when you’re having your period. Fatty acids found in salmons, olive, and almond help to ease pain during that time of the month.

Salmon is rich in the B vitamins like vitamin B6 that reduces irritability and tenderness of the breast and vitamin B12 boost energy.
