21 Dec Boost premenstrual happiness with omega-3s
Bothered by PMS symptoms, such as breast tenderness, headache and bloating? Try taking two grams of omega-3 fatty acids daily. In a study in the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine, female volunteers who did just this were happier, calmer and more focused after 45 days and experienced a reduction in breast tenderness, fewer headaches and less bloating after 90 days. While it takes three cycles for the full effects to kick in, the improvement in premenstrual symptoms is certainly worth waiting for. You can find omega-3 fatty acids at health food stores and online at Amazon.com.
