Omega-3s, soy isoflavones, rosemary extract and B-complex vitamins helped reduce symptoms of PMS

Several earlier individual studies found that omega-3s, soy isoflavones, rosemary extract, and B-complex vitamins helped reduce symptoms of PMS.

Doctors wanted to combine the most helpful nutrients in a three-month test to see if results improved. In this study, 29 women, average age 27, took a combination of nutrients and reported changes in levels of 10 common PMS symptoms after three months. The supplement included the omega-3s EPA and DHA, with 84 mg and 39 mg, respectively, 40 mg of soy isoflavones, 100 mg of rosemary extract, 2.8 mg of vitamin B1, 3.2 mg of vitamin B2, and 4 mg of vitamin B6, which participants took twice per day with meals. On average overall after three months, women reported symptoms declined by more than half for anxiety, bloating, breast tenderness, cravings, fatigue, forgetfulness, headache, insomnia, and skin outbreaks.
