New You Beauty Tip: Pump up your endorphins to look your best while fighting PMS.
For many women, exercising during menstration or while PMS’ing seems like an impossible feat; especially when greasy pizza and elastic band sweat pants seems like the perfect solution. Staying active, regardless of how bloated you feel it is is not only possible but recommended, according to Mayling Kajiya, nutrition expert and founder of all-natural PMS supplement, Girl Uninterrupted. “Your body produces endorphins during exercise and they act as a natural analgesic, which means they help the body naturally relieve pain. This can come in handy if you experience cramps during your time of the month.” Kajiya recommends engaging in activities that you consider “fun” like Zumba or hiking rather than high intensity workouts that feel like a chore on a regular day. To supplement your workout routine eat more egg yolks, red meat, and leafy greens; a diet high in zinc and iron are optimal for feeling your best, gym-ready self.
