Fruits and veggies can do wonders for your body, and leafy greens are no exception! Incorporating these vegetables into your diet is an easy, accessible lifestyle change and can have numerous benefits for not only your PMS symptoms, but overall health.

Dark leafy greens

Leafy greens contain a lot of great minerals and nutrients that can ease your PMS symptoms and help you meet your nutrition requirements for the day. They are rich in iron, magnesium, and calcium, which are important minerals that boost your energy, reduce irritability, and build bone strength. They also contain great antioxidants and vitamins like vitamin A, B, C, and E which support your immune health and gut health, and stimulate good digestion. Incorporating them into your daily diet can also help you gain omega 3-fatty acids, which support heart health as well as potentially reducing PMS symptoms.

Spinach, kale, collard greens, and swiss chard are all great examples of leafy greens that can be easily incorporated into smoothies, salads, sandwiches, and more!Dark leafy greens

Cruciferous vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts can also function as great remedies for PMS symptoms! Containing compounds called indoles, cruciferous vegetables can break down estrogen and allow for more efficient metabolism. This can help keep you hormones balanced and improve your gut and liver health too! In general, eating a variety of vegetables can help diversify your gut microbiome and thus reduce PMS symptoms such as bloating, cramps, or constipation.
