Premenstrual Syndrome: Plagued with Premenstrual Syndrome? Try Calcium!

By Ashley Green

At last, there's hope for millions of women suffering from Premenstrual Syndrome. Researchers have found that a regular intake of calcium may reduce premenstrual syndrome be as much as 60 per cent.

It's a problem that has baffled doctors and worried women. Symptoms that occur a week or two before a woman's monthly periods. While these symptoms usually disappear after your period starts, PMS or Premenstrual Syndrome often interferes with the women's normal activities at home or work.

Despite ongoing studies, the cause of Premenstrual Syndrome are not yet clear. Of course, some women may be more sensitive than others to changing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. While some believe that stress does not seem to cause Premenstrual Syndrome, it could make it worse. Studies have revealed that Premenstrual Syndrome can affect menstruating women of any age and that Premenstrual Syndrome can affect menstruating women of any age and that Premenstrual Syndrome often includes both physical and emotional symptoms.

Now, the latest on the Premenstrual Syndrome front is that a diet rich in calcium appears to reduce the risk of developing Premenstrual Syndrome by as much as 40 per cent.

Most women experience mild Premenstrual Syndrome, but for about 20 percent, the symptoms can be severe. These symptoms define Premenstrual Syndrome and can interfere with daily activities and relationships, according to a report published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Calcium supplements and Vitamin D, which aid the absorption of calcium are believed to reduce the occurrence and severity of Premenstrual Syndrome. To find out the effect of dietary Calcium on Premenstrual Syndrome, data on women with and without Premenstrual Syndrome was collected. The comparison showed that calcium intake had a profound effect on whether women developed Premenstrual Syndrome. " We found that women with highest intake of Vitamin D and calcium from food sources did have a significantly reduced risk of being diagnosed with Premenstrual Syndrome," Elizabeth Bertone-Johnson of the University Of Massachusetts, said.

The largest result was seen in women who consumed about 1,200 mgs of Calcium and 500 IU of vitamin D per day. "We found the women who consumed four servings per day of skin or low-fat milk, fortified orange juice and low fat dairy foods, had approximately a 40 per cent lower risk of being diagnosed with Premenstrual Syndrome, than women who only consumed these foods about once per week," she said.

Levels of calcium and vitamin D fluctuate across the menstrual cycle, and this might define women with and without Premenstrual Syndrome, she added. The findings should encourage them to eat more foods rich in calcium and vitamin D, she said. What's more, these nutrients have also been associated with other health benefits, such as the reduced of osteoporosis and some cancers.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
