Nutrients to reduce PMS

Premenstrual syndrome includes a pool of symptoms. For example, abdominal cramps can be reduced by B vitamins B1, B3 and B6.

Magnesium relaxes the muscles, which counteracts cramps in the uterus. Magnesium also reduces the need for painkillers and improves sugar metabolism.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLS) is an omega-6 fatty acid that can alleviate abdominal cramps.

St. John's wort tea and oil has an antidepressant effect due to its influence on certain neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline. It has a wound- and blood-cleansing effect and can also reduce the pain of migraines.

Chamomile flowers, cinquefoil, lady's mantle, monk's pepper, lemon balm, black cohosh and yarrow all have an antispasmodic effect.

Vitamin E is said to reduce breast tenderness. Zinc, manganese and chromium regulate the sugar metabolism in the event of cravings.

L-tryptophan is an amino acid that reduces tension and is the precursor to serotonin, which is responsible for a good mood and sleep. In addition, the molecule 5-HTP can be taken as an intermediate stage before the messenger substance serotonin.

Calcium is also said to help against depressive moods.

The enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD for short) contained in melon is found in almost all cells in the body and protects the cell from destruction by oxidative stress / free radicals.

I look forward to an exchange!

Best regards
