Dealing With the Symptoms of PMS

In reading a recent article about nutrition deficiencies and how these can cause irregularities for menstruating women, I figured this would be an interesting share for your knowledge and I would love to hear your feedback.

The question has been asked (time and again) regarding how taking healthy meal replacements can impact women’s menstrual cycles.  You know all about the hormones raging at this time of the month; and also 2 weeks into the month.  Don’t we ever get a break before we hit menopause?  Puh-leeze!!!



I wanted to share wether there are benefits of taking healthy supplements, such as Shakeology, during the month’s hormonal rampage?  (don’t you like how I make it seem like a “monster”? it kinda is!)  Will the right amount of nutrition taken in daily help our bodies to adjust and function properly (or at least more pleasurably?)…

Let’s back up to being nutritionally deficient and what that means to our daily being; let alone when our bodies are taxed with hormones, stress, fatigue and life.  Our eating habits have a direct correlation to our bodies’ hormones and body compositions; which basically alter our monthly cycles.  This means that it can be shortened or lengthened in time and intensity.  Exercise also plays a vital role in this issue.

When we are nutritionally deficient, it simply means that our bodies are not balanced and on the verge of being unhealthy.  Most of us don’t realize this fact and do nothing to help alleviate the issues.  How many of your family and friends tell you that the right kind of nutrition can help to activate the proper function of our body?  Did you know that our systems will continue to drop?  Think of your nutrition storages as “empty” when your body is at a loss of certain (or in most cases, many) nutrients.  This only adds more irregularities and hormone related issues during our cycles every month. (guys, if you’ve made it this far into this post, I applaud you for your sympathy)  There are numerous studies that support vitamin and mineral deficiencies in our bodies that can cause severe menstrual symptoms.  (and you thought you were alone?)
There are more and more women who have been taking Shakeology to boost their health and weight loss efforts.  It’s a misconception that this is just a “meal replacement shake” or “weight loss shake”.  In all honesty, many times it starts off with these simple goals but proves to help in more ways than expected.  There is a growing number of pregnant and breastfeeding women who have continued on with their Shakeology intake, with the growing recommendations from their obstetricians and pediatricians.  This is showing to safely and effectively boost their health and fitness, while bridging the gaps in nutritional deficiencies.  A healthy diet that consists of the basic nutrients will resolve period irregularities.  Shakeology can help to overcome many health related issues due to it’s complete nutrient abilities.
Here is the breakdown of the essential ingredients from Shakeology and how it might (or might not) ward off the negative effects and symptoms of your monthly cycle.

Here are some of the essential nutrients in Shakeology that have the power to treat abnormalities related to your periods.

For your monthly cramps:  BILBERRY

Shakeology includes the extracts from Bilberry, a shrub closely related to the blueberry plant, which is rich in antioxidant flavanoids. This blue fruit is great to regulate blood circulation, keep the urinary track in a good condition, fight diarrhea and help to treat menstrual cramps.

To help regulate your hormones: VITAMIN D3

Shakeology is a great source of Vitamin D treatment to regulate the hormones. A number of women who are suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome and are not menstruating properly can return to a normal period cycle by adding additional Vitamin D source in their diets.

For overall PMS help:  TRYPTOPHAN

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid for the human diet that is found in Shakeology. This ingredient is claimed to offer several benefits including fighting off depression, overcoming the PMS symptoms and to enhance performance. Tryptophan builds proteins in the body and helps to keep away the depression and anxiety you face during severe PMS.

To help Post-menopausal symptoms:  MANGANESE

Shakeology ingredients contain manganese, a powerful antioxidant that is essential in lessening the spinal bone loss – a common problem for women who suffer from Osteoporosis, and a common condition after menopause.

What does it all mean?

Shakeology is a complete “healthy potion” for you. Derived from whole-food sources, Shakeology caters to daily vitamins and mineral counts, and delivers super food nutrients to your body which ensure optimal health, inside and outside. You can drink Shakeology to fight off a number of defects, get relief from them, and optimize your system to enjoy better health. It is important to note that although Shakeology has a complete nutritional dense profile that helps in overcoming a number of health related issues;  there are no scientific/medical studies yet that prove whether it regulates periods or impacts the cycles in a negative way.
