If you've been suffering from PMS and menstrual cramps, adding a 1 gram capsule of mixed essential fatty acids to your daily diet could help reduce your symptoms say's a group of researcher in Brazil. This is not the first research to link PMS and essential fatty acid (EFA) intake. Since our bodies can only produce fatty acids, (long chain molecules) from the foods we eat, then our bodies will be deficient if our diets are deficient.
Eating eggs, nuts, vegetables and fish daily should help a body produce enough. If not, a dietary supplement of flax oil or fish oils containing omega 3 and omega 6's are a very good way to supplement your EFA production. Essential fatty acids are well known for stabilizing your mood, reducing inflammation and pain, and aiding in the regulation of estrogen and progesterone.
The researchers of this study do not make any recommendation about whether women should increase their intake of essential fatty acids, instead they just say consult with your doctor. Unfortunately most doctors don't have time to keep up with all the new studies and many have no idea that supplements can make a difference. Keep in mind, the study results were more beneficial for women who took the supplement at least three months and for as long as six months to reduce your PMS symptoms.
If you are suffering with menstrual cramps and an irregular cycle, PMS Relief Herb Pac is a faster answer. (Although I still recommend EFA supplementation for many women.) The first time you use our herbs, you will see a noticeable decrease in cramping and pain within 30-60 minutes. Women who suffer severe PMS symptoms should take one packet the day before their menstrual cycle starts and one packet or two packets each day they have painful periods.
We get lots of reports of women who also like to use one packet at the time of ovulation when they tend to get very moody and sometimes irritable. This is a great time to take one packet also. Just drink as a tea and enjoy. It helps calm your mood and take the edge off your stress levels.
Unlike the researchers of this study, we guarantee results!
The study was published in Reproductive Health, Jan 2011.
