If you’re a woman, you know there’s nothing fun about our periods, especially when premenstrual syndrome (PMS) rears its ugly head.
Cramps, bloating, fatigue, mood swings, and massive irritability are things that most of us are forced to deal with on a regular basis. I usually just suffer through PMS like many others, but did you know that the food you eat can make all the difference when it comes to how you feel before and during that time of the month?
You don’t have to let PMS rule your life, because digestive health expert Linda Booth says that these 12 foods will help you get rid of its nasty symptoms.
1. If your cramps are super painful, have some pineapple. It contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps muscles relax.
2. Can’t button your favorite jeans? Drink watermelon juice! Its high water content relieves premenstrual bloating and water retention.
3. Celery is another food that contains a lot of water, so it can also help stop bloating. It’ll keep you hydrated, too.
