Foods High in Magnesium
A great snack to have on hand while your battling PMS is a variety of seeds and nuts — specifically, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and cashews. What these foods have in common is being rich in magnesium, which has been shown to help with bloating and moodiness. Here's the kicker: too much calcium can block the absorption of magnesium into the body, but magnesium is needed to carry calcium to the bones. To counteract this, don't go overboard on your calcium intake, and try to enjoy magnesium-rich foods apart from those that are calcium-rich.
