The Best And Worst Foods for Your Period


Relieve menstrual cramps by knowing what healing foods to eat and what to avoid.

Between the bloating, cramps, and mood swings, “this time of the month” can be really miserable for many women. Sometimes PMS, also called PMS, can take up to a full week for a period to start, and in extreme cases, “Aunt Flo” can come to town for another 7-10 days.

Lifestyle factors can help relieve discomfort during this time. This positive change can occur through dietary changes and nutritional needs.

Good menstrual foods are rich in nutrients and help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. While sugar cravings may increase around this time of the month, planning a little ahead can help you stick to a proper menstrual plan, and your cycle will improve a little each time. These are the best foods to turn to when the cramps start to hold.
