PMS anyone?
Josh 201604 KWP
WSJ yesterday had an article that indicates research evidence shows that bad PMS may likely be caused by a deficiency of calcium.

The recomendataion for an adult woman is 1000mg of calcium per day. Elderly may require more.

Also, Calcium needs Vitamin D for absorption. If you don't spend time in direct sunlight every couple of days, you should take a vitamin D suppliment.

Also, magnesium is reported to be key in calcium absorption.

Also, iron, such as in spinach and other leafy greens, REDUCES calcium absorption. Since women generally need more iron anyway, it's probably best to stagger calcium intake away from iron/greens, but to keep up any iron rich foods.

Leeks are iron rich too, if you like 'em.

This concludes the broadcast of....

No, I'm not saying you're irratable.

I didn't mean to contradict you.

Please stop beating me.


Er, sorry, I'm sleep deprived. All of that dialogue was made up, though everything from leeks upwards should be true.

If that's ok with you.

If Eiwe wrote this, and I was PMSing, I'd be really irritated still, even if I had calcium and leeks and whatever else you have listed.

And I'd say screw all this food it's time for some chocolate chip cookies instead.

Chocolate - the ultimate period soother.


Chocolate is good almost ANY time.

Especially if it's GOOD chocolate.
