Struggle with anxiety, anger and/or the blues during your premenstrual week as estrogen plummets?
Try taking 50 mg. to 100 mg. of vitamin B6 daily. A review of nine studies in the British Medical Journal reveals that women who did just this were significantly less likely to be anxious, depressed and irritable during the week leading up to their period.
Though more research is needed to explain why, one theory is that B6 helps the brain churn out chemicals that balance mood.
