Do feelings of irritability, depression, breast pain, lower back pain and bloating haunt your life just before your menstruation? Research shows that over 50% of women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) have low levels of magnesium and that other nutrients like zinc, essential fatty acids and B vitamins are often in short supply.

Take action:
Do the following during your "PMS" week: eat fish at least twice during this time; keep your dairy consumption as low as possible; make sure you eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day; avoid eating large amounts of refined sugar; stick to wholewheat alternatives; keep salt intake to a minimum; and never skip meals.
