Iron Intake By Women May Help Protect Against PMS



At University of Massachusetts Amherst and Harvard, a clinical trial with 3,000 women evaluated whether mineral intake could affect symptoms of PMS.

Women who consumed higher intakes of non-hem iron, the form found in plant foods, were 30 to 40 percent less likely to suffer from PMS.

Supplements from The AIM Companies high in iron include: BarleyLife, BarleyLife Xtra, RediBeets and CoCoa LeafGreens.

Note: The study at Harvard also suggested diets high in vitamin B, from food sources, helped reduce the incidence of PMS and will help reduce fatigue during this time.

Peak Endurance is a great source of vitamin B, as well as daily intake of FloraFood.

FloraFood also helps to facilitate absorption of vitamin B.
