10 Superfoods To Eat When You Have Period Cramps

Water: You know drinking water is necessary for your body to function in every way possible, but it also can help you out with all that bloating and cramps. Down as much as you can in a day, and you’ll feel like a new woman.

Dark Chocolate: It’s not unusual to get cravings for chocolate while you’re on your period, but you want to make sure to choose a more healthy option. Dark chocolate will satisfy your craving, help relax your muscles, and keep you happier without consuming the fat and dairy in other types of chocolate.

Pineapple: This summery fruit helps your muscles relax, which will in turn reduce your cramps. It will also help with bloating and can even boost your mood, making you feel happier! You can eat it plain, drink it as a juice or in a smoothie, or grill it for a delicious treat.

Bananas: Have you ever heard that you should eat a banana after exercising to stop muscle cramps from settling in the next day? The same thing is true for menstrual cramps. Eat a banana before or during your cycle to avoid cramps and reduce bloating.

Spinach: Leafy green vegetables are a superfood and one of the things you should always have in your diet. During your period they can help with cramps and be a great source of the calcium you need, as mentioned above. If you hate the taste, try blending it into a smoothie with some fruit and almond milk.

Salmon: This delicious, flavorful fish is stock full of omega-3 and vitamin D, both of which help with PMS symptoms, so make sure you eat this the week before your period. It also has anti-inflammatory effects, keeping your cramps in check and reducing bloating. Add some teriyaki sauce and bon appetit!

Tea: A cup of tea, green tea, or chamomile tea specifically will sooth your mind, body, and soul. Snuggle up with a warm cup after a long day, and ease into its effects.

Low-fat yoghurt: Foods that are rich in calcium will also help reduce the pain of cramps. You’ve now got your breakfast idea for the length of your period. You’re welcome.

Walnuts: Reach for a handful of walnuts for a great snack that’ll keep that omega 3s running through your body. No need to take ibuprofen when you have a bowl of these by your side.

Kale:Green smoothie, anyone? Kale is one of the best plant-based sources of calcium that relieves the pain associated with your period.
