PMS unfortunately something a good majority of us ladies have to deal with, but we can actually minimize the symptoms quite significantly. Current medicine tells us that all those ‘uncomfortable’ things we experience like bloating, fatigue, headaches, and emotional irritability comes about from an imbalance in estrogen and progesterone. Two of the main nutrients that help to bring our progesterone levels up are Vitamin B6 and magnesium. “Heal” is going to give you some of that B6 from its spinach content, and ‘Hustle’, our Pumpkin Seed Mylk, has a great source of iron and magnesium, which also helps to boost your mood, and relax your muscles. We put ‘Heartbeet’ in the lineup because it’s a great source of folate, which helps to fight irritability and fatigue. In addition of lemon, beets are a great diuretic that help to fight any fluid retention. Harmonize has both grapefruit and coconut water for potassium to manage fluid levels once again, but just be careful not to be drinking this one every day if you’re on medication as grapefruit can interfere with the effectiveness of some medication. Please consult your physician if feeling unsure.
The importance of gut health has been popping up everywhere, so it comes as no surprise to see that it’s also linked to the health of our lady system. Specific bacteria help to digest and remove excess estrogen in the body, so ensuring you get enough probiotics, like kombucha in your day helps support this removal. Collagen helps to heal the gut lining and fight off inflammation, both of which can intensify PMS symptoms.
