Cramps, bloating, mood swings, food cravings, fatigue...the list of symptoms that come with your monthly cycle goes on and on. 85% of women experience premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some women are affected by one symptom while others suffer from multiple. It’s time to take control of your hormones! We’re here to help you tackle your PMS symptoms with BINTO and other home remedies.
Adjust Your Diet
Eating a well balanced and wholesome diet will help with your PMS symptoms. Sticking to a diet is especially important after ovulation, leading up to your period and during your period. Here’s some diet tips and tricks to relieve your symptoms:
- Try eating foods that are high in calcium and vitamin D. This includes whole milk, full-fat greek yogurt (we like grass-fed), and egg yolks. These kinds of foods have proven to help reduce anxiety and depression symptoms.
- Make sure you are eating whole grains, fruits and vegetables. These can help with your PMS symptoms if you eat them the week leading up to your period. Whole grains can also be a good replacement for those sugary food cravings, which cause mood swings.
- Don’t skip meals. While you may not feel like eating a meal due to bloating, skipping the meal is actually going to make the symptoms worse. Eat regular meals with snacks mixed in throughout the day.
Take a Women’s Daily Vitamin
By taking a multivitamin you can not only fill the holes in your diet but also reduce stress levels. Being stressed can make your other PMS symptoms even worse. Here at BINTO, our expert formulated multivitamin includes magnesium, which is known for reducing stress and other mood changes.
Catch Some ZZZs
Fatigue is a common symptom that comes with PMS. If your body is telling you that you are more tired than usual, try to get more sleep. You’ll feel more rejuvenated in the morning and decrease your stress levels. Some women experience insomnia with PMS. Try working out during the day. It will trigger stages of deeper sleep at night.
Cut the Caffeine
You might love your cup of coffee in the morning, possibly to get rid of the fatigue that comes with PMS. But, drinking caffeine could worsen your other PMS symptoms. Studies have linked caffeine intake with irritability and breast tenderness. If you still want a hot beverage in the morning, try an herbal tea or hot water with lemon instead. They have been shown to reduce mood swings and cramping.
Try a Probiotic
We want your cycle to go as smoothly as possible. That's why we have created a daily probiotic that helps your PMS symptoms. Stress, anxiety and depression can all be minimized by taking a probiotic. And, as a bonus, it helps with unwanted bloating.
