Eating and PMS

The symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) can be distracting, annoying, and sometimes painful. But luckily there are some things you can do to reduce it, starting with the way you eat specially on the days before and during your period.

Leafy green vegetables

They’re rich in iron and B vitamins, plus their high fiber count also can help with digestive issues.


Foods that are rich in good fats or omega-3s do a body good and are much more filling than chips.

Whole grains

Fiber is another way to help you stay regular during your period - plus when you get enough fiber, it helps combat bloat (another symptom of PMS).

Red meats

Increasing your iron intake during your period can help make up for what’s lost each month.

Fresh fruits

Another great way to power up your digestive system and strengthen your immune system is with antioxidants.
