Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and diet – Kelp

As we mentioned in the previous article, PMS is defined as a defective function of the ovaries related to a woman’s menstrual cycle, affects a woman’s physical and emotional state, and sometimes interferes with daily activities as a result of hormonal fluctuation. The syndrome occurs a week or two before menstruation and then subsides when the period begins. In this article, we will discuss how seaweed helps treat PMS.

I. Definition
Seaweeds are algae plants that belong to the Laminariales family and exist only on the clean water shoreline. It contains many nutrients and has been used as food for thousands of years for the people who live on the coast.

II. How Seaweed Affects Women With PMS
1. Vitamins
Kelp contains many vitamins, including vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B12, C, E, and K, which are necessary for the overall health of the body, as we mentioned in the previous article. Remember, for whatever reason, women with PMS are significantly deficient in vitamins.

2. Iodine
a) Thyroid function
Iodine is vital for maintaining the normal function of the thyroid gland. Iodine deficiency increases the risk of hyperthyroidism resulting in a hormonal imbalance that causes fatigue, tiredness and depression and uncontrolled weight loss.
b) Immune system
In addition to increasing the immune system, it protects our body against the formation of free radicals and prevents irregular cell growth, it also stimulates the immune response against infections and inflammations.
c) Nervous system
It also helps to inhibit the estrogen response through upregulation of proteins involved in estrogen metabolism, maintaining adequate levels of estrogen and progesterone, and decreasing the risk of PMS symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance.

3. Alkaili
Alkaili is important to help our body neutralize acid levels because most of our current diet contains a large amount of acid-gene foods, such as meat and eggs, which causes acids to accumulate in the blood and cause nervous tension such as fatigue, anorexia, insomnia, headache, and uncontrolled joint pain.

4. Chlorella
In addition to helping to clean the plague on the arterial wall and making the arterial wall more elastic, chlorella helps improve liver function in carbohydrate and fat and protein metabolism, reducing the risk of hormonal imbalance and fluctuation of insulin for some women with PMS.
