FOOD TO BOOST YOUR MOOD
How it boosts mood: Research shows that women who experience moodiness from premenstrual syndrome may have an underlying condition where calcium isn’t used properly by the body during times of low estrogen in the menstrual cycle. Consuming at least 1000 mg of calcium each day has been found to effectively alleviate depression and anxiety in women who experience PMS. Plain yogurt is actually one of the most concentrated sources of the mineral at 488 mg calcium per cup. (Nonfat milk has 306 mg per cup.)
Quick Tip: Add non-citrus fruit to get your servings for the day and add ThinStick to control your cravings.
You'll be feeling healthy and happy! :)
