Do you have any tips for managing menstral symptoms?

If you are in menses and experiencing symptoms like cramping, breast tenderness and other physical symptoms, you may want to consider a couple of supplements.

The first is krill oil, which Dr. Jade views as almost a female-specific essential fat. It’s good for men too, but it seems to have an especially nice effect on women. There’s a nice study on PMS and krill oil consumption showing that women who take krill oil suffer from fewer symptoms. He recommends trying one to three grams of krill oil daily. This may help allay some of your menstrual symptoms.

He also likes the compound Vitex. Its common name is chaste berry. Between 400 and 800 milligrams per day is a really nice hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis promoter. It balances the hypothalamus and can allay some of your symptoms. Note that it takes about four to eight weeks to begin seeing the effects of Vitex.
