Combating PMS with Dietary Supplements
PMS is a miserable time of the month for a good many women, and those who are suffering from the condition know that there few things worse than having to deal with the full brunt of PMS symptoms with little that can be done about it. Researchers have identified a number of dietary supplements that hold a lot of promise when it comes to combating PMS symptoms or at the very least their severity. Remember that PMS is a highly individual condition and there really is no way to generalize the way dietary supplements will affect each and every woman dealing with PMS; however, there are some striking similarities in the way they may counteract the condition.
Magnesium is rarely considered when discussing the need for dietary supplementation. It is nonetheless noteworthy that magnesium has been discovered to be a powerful mood equalizer during the time of PMS and even beyond.

Calcium and vitamin D are known to preserve good bone health. Did you know that calcium also has the power of regulating the emotional responses during PMS?

PMS sufferers know that suddenly craving cheese is not an unheard of occurrence.
Vitamin E is known to be useful for the health of skin and body cells, but in addition to these advantages, this vitamin also has the power of keeping moods even. While vitamin E will not make all mood swings go away, it does have the power of greatly reducing the anger in particular that seems to mar relationship interactions during the time of PMS.
Evening primrose oil contains gamma linoleic acid that is thought to be a multi symptom fighter when it comes to dealing with the various manifestations of PMS. Dosage varies greatly, depending on the purity of the product, but overall the standard dose appears to be right around 3 gm per day for the duration of the PMS. Unlike other vitamins and dietary supplements, there is little value to continue taking evening primrose oil once PMS has passed.
