PMS Relief

Premenstrual syndrome is a set of physical and emotional symptoms that relate to a woman's menstrual cycle. Many women (of child-bearing age) experience physical symptoms such as as breast tenderness and feeling bloated - yet these symptoms are consistent with healthy ovulatory function. The emotional symptoms reported are mainly irritability, tension and unhappiness. PMS appears as a pattern of emotional and physical symptoms occurring during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and described by sufferers as being of "sufficient severity to interfere with some aspects of life".

PMS Info

Premenstrual syndrome  is a set of physical and emotional symptoms that relate to a woman's menstrual cycle. Many women (of child-bearing age) experience physical symptoms such as breast tenderness and feeling bloated - yet these symptoms are consistent with healthy ovulatory function. The emotional symptoms reported are mainly irritability, tension and unhappiness. PMS appears as a pattern of emotional and physical symptoms occurring during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and described by sufferers as being of "sufficient severity to interfere with some aspects of life". 

PMS is sometimes referred to as premenstrual tension or PMT

Emotional and physical symptoms of PMS vary from woman to woman, yet each woman's pattern of symptoms is predictable, and occurs during the ten days prior to menstruation, and finishes either shortly before or shortly after the beginning of menstrual flow.

More than 200 different symptoms have been associated with PMS so it is very difficult establishing a diagnosis. Other emotional symptoms include stress, anxiety, insomnia, headache, fatigue, mood swings, increased emotional sensitivity, and changes in libido. 

Exact symptoms and intensity vary from woman to woman, and even from cycle to cycle. Most women with premenstrual syndrome experience only a few of the possible symptoms, in a relatively predictable pattern.

Each woman with PMS has her own personal pattern of symptoms. 

There are natural health products which may help alleviate some symptoms of PMS.

5-hydroxytryptophan, the direct precursor to serotonin, may help relieve symptoms by increasing the serotonin production. It is the intermediate step between tryptophan and serotonin.

Supplementing with fatty acids can maximize the production of anti-inflammatory hormone messengers (prostaglandins E1 and E3) while suppressing pro-inflammatory hormones. Clinical studies with omega-3 fatty acids reduced some symptoms associated with PMS, including physical symptoms like cramps. Fish oil is a good source of omega-3 and also flax seed oil, from linseed, as it contains a lot of alpha-linolenic acid which the body converts to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) - which is what omega-3 is metabolised as. 

Ginkgo biloba may be effective at reducing symptoms of anxiety and headaches. Vitamin E may also confer benefits as it is a powerful antioxidant and scavenges free radicals, hereby protecting the integrity of your cell membranes.

Theanine, an amino acid found in most teas, can decrease the effects of PMS. In some studies sufferers reported effects that were comparable to “having a massage” or “taking a hot bath”. 

Supplementing with Vitamin B6, zinc and magnesium can also alleviate the symptoms associated with PMS.

  • amazing stuff

    star

    I switched to liquid magnesium as I have digestive issues. This is yummy and works great. Best sleeps and great for pain relief. I used magnesium for nerve relaxant after a spinal surgery and feel that it helped immensely in my recovery.. However- SHAKE WELL - and I mean bang it upside down on a bench as it can accumulate in the bottom of the bottle.

  • Does help with PMS

    star

    I have been on and off this supplement and there is a clear difference when I stop. It eradicates the physical premenstrual symptoms (like sore breasts) and helps with mood and irritability.
