More magnesium

Amy recommends adding more of it to our diets around our period to lessen the symptoms. ‘Magnesium helps to regulate nerve and muscle functioning, and therefore an increase in magnesium-rich foods and help to relax your muscles. Magnesium can be found in many foods including fish and nuts, as well as leafy greens. It’s been found to alleviate PMS depression, nausea and constipation, too!’
