Also try some of these helpful tips for some of the most common PMS signs:

1) Mood swings:  If you feel especially emotional around your cycle try working out on a regular basis the week leading up to your period.  Exercise releases natural endorphines to lift and help regulate your mood.
2) Painful Cramps: Cut back on caffeine the week before your period.  Caffeine has been linked in causing periods to be more painful and many women who cut back on caffeine significantly report having PMS signs like cramping subside!
3) Headaches: Try adding a Magnesium supplement to your diet.  Magnesium reduces the reaction of nerves that become agitated during the menstrual cycle. These nerve paths control the elements of blood pressure, sleep rhythms, hormone production, and temperature. All of these add to the increase in headaches

1) Evening Primrose Oil: Evening primrose oil is rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid involved in the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.
