[YEA] PMS Cure: B-Complex, D3, Magnesium
I have had horrendus PMS for the last 10 years, to the point I was diagnosed with PMDD. I would be 100% normal 3 weeks out of the month, but the week before my period I would hit rock bottom, just like flipping a switch. I would get enraged, ehausted, suicidal. Completely out of my mind. The only thing the doctor offered was various anti-depressives I. E. Prozac, Zoloft, etc.
Recently I noticed some redness in the face and scalp flaking, and attributing this to seborrheic dermatitis/rocasea, started taking some supplements that I read could combat it. I started out with a quality B complex, and 2 days later started taking supplement that had Calcium/Magnesium/D3.
One day I went to the bathroom and found out my period had started. I was absolutely mind-blown; never in my life has it come without a major buildup that would peak with extreme mood swings and end with me in bed, sobbing, exhausted in pain.
-Vitamin B12 1, 000 MG ~Make sure it is in the form of methylcobalamin~
-Folic Acid, 400 mcg
-Biotin, 25 mcg
Mine is sublingual, which is recommended for effective absorption. Took this and the other supplement for 8 days before my period came effortlessly.
