5 Best Food to Eat During PMS

5 Best Food to Eat During PMS

It cannot be denied that most of the girls out there will get these tense pains, cramps and mood swings during your period. You can even start a fight with anyone or cry for no apparent reason. Not only that, some gets irritated and depressed easily. All this while, we think why it happens? Truth is that a lot of girls go through it when the time of the month comes and suddenly feels better. Sometimes during PMS, we have a huge appetite. So here are the food and drinks that can be taken during the challenging PMS phase.

  • Rose Tea

Stimulates blood flow. Lift your mood, makes you happier and feel in control. You can get them in rose green tea, rose black tea, rose milk tea or even rose petals. And please guys do not drink this if you have heavy blood flow! It's a big no-no.

  • Orange

Women who consume high amounts of calcium and vitamin D experience less intense PMS symptoms. It’s also good for the skin too. A great natural skin care substitute.

  • Chocolate

Dark chocolate is better because it won't contain as much sugar. Dark chocolate has antioxidants and also is a source of magnesium which reduces mood swings as well as helps to regulate serotonin - the happy hormone! And of course because you're on your period!

  • Banana

Bananas are one of the best sources of potassium and contain B6 and other vitamins which help to boost your mood. Bananas are also known to help with cramps and reduces water retention; bloating as well. Think of them as the happy fruit!

  • Eggs

Start your day with rich proteins like eggs. Eggs give you the energy to lead your day with confidence. Don't forget to eat with whole wheat bread, add some cottage cheese and two ounces of turkey for that delicious taste.
