Bloating, depression, irritability and mood swings… if you, or someone you know, suffers from severe Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), you know how quickly it can turn from Dr. Jekyll to Ms. “Everyone Hide.” PMS is more than a monthly nuisance — for some the symptoms can become so debilitating that they can interfere with work and even your relationships.
If your monthlies are driving you mad, scientists from the Middle East say they have uncovered a sweet solution that could erase your PMS symptoms for good in just 8 weeks!
Imagine, your “PMS” could be “MIA” by your next cycle and you won’t need to touch a prescription drug to reap these amazing results.
Iranian researchers presented their eye-opening study at the recent European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology meeting, where they announced that fennel, a popular Mediterranean flower, may hold the key to banishing your most stubborn PMS symptoms forever!
Researchers asked a group of women suffering from severe PMS to spend eight weeks taking fennel-seed drops. Another group of women engaged in an exercise program throughout their menstrual cycle, while a third control group did nothing.
While the exercise group was able to ease some of their stubborn PMS symptoms, their results couldn’t hold a candle to the fast and complete relief experienced by the gals taking regular fennel supplements.
In just eight short weeks, the women who consumed fennel felt less depressed, had an easier time doing their jobs, and had less difficulty getting along with others. Fennel is packed with phytoestrogens, and researchers believe it may help correct some of the hormonal imbalances that can leave you feeling frustrated and miserable for days at a time.
Of course, if you’ve been reading this e-letter for a while, you’re no stranger to fennel. We’ve told you about how this powerful natural cure with a sweet licorice taste can soothe stomachaches, and it’s also used around the world to improve everything from eyesight to blood pressure.
The best part about fennel extract is that you can pick it up at any health food store, and a healthy dose may only run you about 25 cents a day.
Some may call menstruation “the curse,” but believe me, friend, it doesn’t need to be. Give this safe, affordable solution a try, and see if you can give PMS the B-O-O-T for good.
