It’s a subject that we don’t like to talk about much, but for many women, it crops up regularly.
Monthly in fact.
But there is good news for women for whom this topic is more than just a matter-of-fact issue.
A 10 year study, released by the University of Massachusetts, examined the dietary habits of women, has has discovered that women who regularly consume green leafy vegetables are less likely to suffer from the symptoms of PMS than those who did not.
They speculate that it is the combination of iron and zinc found in green leafy vegetables and dried beans that makes a difference.
While the first instinct might be to reach for a supplement table, other medical practitioners are sounding a word of caution.
Clinical nutritionist Samantha Heller, at the NYU Center for Musculoskeletal Care, agreed. “It’s important to speak with your physician before supplementing with any minerals,” she said. “Too much iron can cause serious problems, and supplementing with something like zinc can knock your copper balance off. There’s a delicate balance in the body, and women need to be very thoughtful before they start using supplements.”
