What to eat for PMS by Sabeeha Abdullah

● Boost omega 3 intake: omega 3 has been shown to reduce the pain associated with

menstruation. AIm for foods such as: salmon, tuna,flaxseeds, chia seeds and pilchards

● Check iron levels: during menstruation, a woman loses iron and if she has a heavy

period, this may lead to anemia. Try to ensure that you eat iron-rich foods such as:beef,

chicken, fish, spinach, nuts, beans and even dark chocolate

● Magnesium: helps to relax muscles and may ease menstrual pain. Try to include

magnesium-rich foods such as: spinach, broccoli, nuts, whole grains and legumes.

● Calcium rich foods: calcium helps to increase mood and reduce pain associated with

menstruation. Try to include calcium-rich foods such as: milk, yoghurt, cheese and eggs
