Is it THAT time of the month where you go berserk with mood swings, food cravings, migraines and cramps? 


Being a lady is special but no, you do not feel  at all special when PMS pays you a visit at that special time of the month. It is like all hell break loose and tempers are short. And you just dont know why sadness creeps in too.

Here are some help to alleviate the devil:

Eat:

Broccoli

Broccoli has a
high content of  calcium and fibre which is a great combination for PMS-buster. Studies have shown that women who eats the most calcium are the least likely to suffer from PMS. Women should consume 1000 mg of calcium per day.

In addition, broccoli’s high levels of fiber will ease bloating and gets rid of discomfort that makes you cranky. It also gets rid of puffiness.


Norwegian Salmon

Norwegian Salmon is high in Omega-3,  fatty acids that are mood boosters which rival antidepressants. Its content of Vitamin D an important vitamin that helps calcium binding in the body. It is one of the top foods for preventing PMS symptoms completely.

Bananas

Women frequently complains of insomnia and trouble sleeping during their period. Inadequate or interrupted sleep makes their mood worse as they are tired.  Lack of sleep makes women more prone to pain, so their cramps will be worse.

Bananas contain a sleep aid hormone called melatonin which helps you get a good night sleep. Furthermore, the properties of pottassium in bananas helps to prevent nightly cramps.


Water


Water retention is a big problem when it comes to PMS. You feel bloated and everything seems puffy and clothes feel tight. Cut out as much salt as possible and drink lots of water (yes! You heard it right! Drink lots of water instead of not drinking water).

Spinach and Kale 


Kale and kale is a beautiful duo. All of the dark green leafy vegetables are high in Vitamin A, and that helps with PMS skin problems - particularly breakouts and pimples.

Pumpkin Seeds

Bad headaches pre and during menstruation? Magnesium in pumpkin seeds relaxes blood vessels and help with  headaches before and your period.










 Lean Meats

Turkey and beef are filled with iron and Vitamin B 12. Iron and  B12 gives you the energy to fight fatigue experienced during your menstruation.



Yours always in health, beauty and happiness

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
