🧠 Understand the role of magnesium

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a key role in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, including the regulation of PMS symptoms. It can help relieve cramps, balance mood swings, and reduce water retention.

🥦 Eat a diet rich in magnesium.

Try to incorporate magnesium-rich foods into your diet. These include dark leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, whole grains, bananas, and dark chocolate. For example, you could have a spinach salad with almonds and whole grain croutons for lunch.

💊 Consider dietary supplements.

If you're having trouble getting enough magnesium through your diet, you might consider a supplement. There are several forms of magnesium, including magnesium citrate and magnesium glycinate, each of which may have different benefits. It's best to consult a doctor or pharmacist to find out which form is best for you.

🧘‍♀️ Try relaxation exercises

Magnesium is known to help relax muscles. You can maximize this effect by incorporating relaxation exercises like yoga or meditation into your routine. For example, try a gentle yoga sequence before bed to relax your muscles and increase your magnesium levels.

🛀 Use magnesium oil or baths

Magnesium can also be applied topically by applying magnesium oil to your skin or taking a magnesium bath. This can be especially helpful if you suffer from severe cramps. Simply add a cup of magnesium flakes to a warm bath and relax for 20 minutes.

📝 Keep a symptom diary

It can be helpful to keep a symptom diary to see how your menstrual symptoms change over time. Note when you take magnesium and how you feel afterward. This can help you identify patterns and adjust your magnesium intake accordingly.
