Here are five natural things you can take to get rid of bothersome PMS mood swings.
Herbs for Menstrual Mood Swings
It turns out herbs work well for preventing PMS mood swings. For example, cat’s claw has been shown to be effective. In some cultures, people who are depressed sleep with it under their pillow and they report waking up and feeling better. If depression is part of your PMS mood swings take two 500 mg capsules of cat’s claw twice a day.
Another herb that is effective for controlling moodiness is red raspberry leaf. Just add one or two tea bags containing this herb to a cup of boiling water and drink away.
2. Vitamins for PMS Mood Swings
B Vitamins are the most important vitamins to get to keep your feeling calm and content. Look for a B Complex that contains vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, biotin, folic acid, inositol and choline.
3. Minerals to Take for Mood Swings During Period
When it comes to minerals that help prevent mood swings, you should start with calcium. It benefits the nervous system and if you deficient in calcium it can cause mood swings. Take 500 mg of calcium citrate two times per day. Also eat more dairy and other calcium rich foods.
Another important mineral to take to alleviate mood swings is magnesium. If you are deficient in magnesium it can cause irritability and mood swings.
Many supplements include both calcium and magnesium; look for one that has a 2:1 ration of calcium to magnesium. So if it has 500 mg of calcium it should have 250 of magnesium.
Flowers? That’s right, flowers can also help you balance your mood. Look for a flower remedy that is picked in bloom, soaked for hours in a large vat and then distilled. Put a few drops of the flower solution under your tongue for best effect. Within a few minutes of taking the flower remedy you should feel calmer. Common flowers that are used for this treatment come from the Cherry Plum, the Elm tree and the Beech plant.

There is no faster or easier way to get vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, red raspberry leaf and chaste berry.
