These Are The Best Vegetarian Sources of Iron

Studies have focused on women’s nutrition and PMS symptoms over a period of 10 years. Women who consumed plenty of plants rich in iron were 33 percents less prone to PMS symptoms compared to women who rarely consumed these foods that are rich in iron.

Also, the presence of zinc in the body was an important factor in alleviating the symptoms of PMS.

“A research has shown that a number of minerals are important for the menstrual cycle and PMS”, said a professor of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Elizabeth Bertone-Johnson and also added that it is very important for women to have a balanced nutrition.
