PMS premenstrual syndrome natural remedies for relief of PMS symptoms
What is PMS?
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) appears to be related to fluctuations of hormone levels in your body. This hormonal roller coaster can cause symptoms of severe irritability, mood swings, water retention (bloating), breast tenderness, food cravings, headaches, cramps and a host of other symptoms.
Some women may be more sensitive than others to changing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. Stress does not seem to cause PMS, but may make it worse. PMS can affect menstruating women of any age.
PMS generally occurs between 7 to 10 days before your period, peaks 2 days before the period starts, and then fades away on the first day of period. PMS is often most severe between the ages of 30 and 45.
To help with PMS relief, exercise regularly, get enough sleep and avoid sugary foods and soft drinks and any food or drink with high fructose corn syrup. There is evidence that calcium may decrease many PMS symptoms.
According to the British Medical Journal, doses of vitamin B6 up to 100 milligrams daily were significantly better than placebo in relieving overall premenstrual symptoms and in relieving depression associated with premenstrual syndrome. BMJ, 5/22/99: 318:1375-1381.
When the most severe symptoms, mood, or physical symptoms are dealt with, the other symptoms are often less intense. Thus, a woman who is treated for PMS depression may experience fewer physical symptoms.
Premenstrual-type symptoms may become worse in the perimenopausal period (in the late 40s.) However, menopause often brings the end of PMS. It is possible to stop PMS symptoms using PMS remedies.

Research shows that B-6 vitamins are very helpful for both control of PMS symptoms and morning sickness during the first stage of pregnancy.
Researchers in the UK looked at the results of previously conducted trials. In total, they looked at nine studies that involved nearly 1,000 women. The women took either vitamin B6 or a dummy pill.
Analysis of the various findings showed that B6 was twice as effective as the placebo in relieving pre-menstrual syndrome.
The investigators, led by Dr Katrina Wyatt, said: "Results suggest that doses of vitamin B6 up to 100 mg per day are likely to be of benefit in treating pre-menstrual symptoms and pre-menstrual depression."
Vitamin B6 also helps maintain your blood glucose (sugar) within a normal range. When caloric intake is low your body needs vitamin B6 to help convert stored carbohydrate or other nutrients to glucose to maintain normal blood sugar levels.
Vitamin B6 is needed for the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are required for normal nerve cell communication.
A deficiency of vitamin B6, folic acid, or vitamin B12 may increase your level of homocysteine, an amino acid normally found in your blood. There is evidence that an elevated homocysteine level is an independent risk factor for heart disease and stroke. The evidence suggests that high levels of homocysteine may damage coronary arteries.
