A diet rich in calcium and vitamin D is not only an excellent way to protect you against osteoporosis, but also decreases the risk of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) in women.
Milk and dairy products, tofu and soybean products, cabbage, broccoli, kale, spinach, fish and sardines and sesame seeds are excellent sources of calcium.
According to A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia, “Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) refers to a wide range of physical or emotional symptoms that typically occur about 5 to 11 days before a woman starts her monthly menstrual cycle. The symptoms usually stop when menstruation begins, or shortly thereafter.”
