Calcium and PMS

Doctors have given women yet another reason to

get plenty of calcium - it helps relieve the symptoms of premenstrual

syndrome, or PMS. A report published Wednesday in the American

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology says women who take calcium

supplements report a 50% decrease in their symptoms. Researchers

surveyed 720 women between the ages of 18 and 45. They picked out 466

who said they had moderate to severe premenstrual symptoms on

regular basis. Half were given 1,200 milligrams of calcium per day

and half were given a dummy pill. Three months later, women who took

the calcium supplements reported a 48% drop in overall PMS symptoms.

(Don't take Tums or other forms of calcium carbonate, as we can't

metabolize it; go for a good chelated brand with magnesium.)

Don't forget about this if you are feeling awful.
