Natural Cures for PMS?
Be Careful

If you are looking for natural cures for PMS, you know that there are a lot of new products hitting the market with claims to relieve the discomforts of premenstrual syndrome.

PMS Symptoms


From the aches and pains to the puffy face and bloated belly, there are a lot of symptoms for these products to target. Then you have the natural or organic dietary supplements that claim to take the edge off of your crankiness or kiss your cramps goodbye. While there are some natural products that can help many women with the discomforts of PMS, you do have to be careful about what you put in your body.

Know Your Stuff

No matter how promising a product seems to be or how many of your friends may be taking a product, you have to do your research before buying into it. This means researching all active ingredients in the product so you know exactly what you are consuming and what side effects may come along with that consumption. Even natural, organic, and pure supplements can have side effects, and some of those side effects can be severe.

Some supplements and natural products may interact negatively with prescription medications and other supplements. Natural supplements come from nature and can have a powerful effect on the body. In fact, you take these supplements because you want them to have an impact on your body. You just want to make sure the impact is a positive one that helps you without causing further pain or additional problems.

Some PMS supplements and herbs may interact with one another, so you have to do research into those potential interactions when taking natural cures for PMS for your symptoms.

If you are uncertain about potential side effects, interactions, or other product safety issues, ask your doctor or a pharmacist before consuming the product or mixing two products.

Consider the Dose

“The more the better” does not always apply to supplements and other products marketed as natural cures for PMS. Many supplements and medications are safe in reasonable doses, but they may become dangerous when consumed in higher doses. Some natural ingredients can cause permanent bodily damage or even death when consumed in high dosages over time.

Follow package instructions in terms of dosage and frequency of use for all medications, supplements, and other products designated for premenstrual syndrome symptoms.

What PMS?

There have been some studies that suggest the negative premenstrual syndrome symptoms many women experience are not tied as closely to the menstrual cycle as we all believe. The cramping that you feel just before starting your period is real and you may have other symptoms within a couple weeks of our menstrual cycle starting as well, but these studies may be onto something.

What if it is simpler than we think?

Taking krill oil on a regular basis and maintaining a positive outlook may noticeably improve your PMS symptoms and your overall health. We know it does help to keep a positive mindset and talk yourself into doing things like going for a walk or relaxing in a hot tub when you do not feel well. Eating a healthy diet, consuming adequate amounts of water, and relieving stress during this phase of your cycle can work wonders as well. You may need fewer pain medications if you simply supplement with high-quality krill oil and focus on a healthy lifestyle.
