Throughout your menstrual cycle the key is a balanced diet. This becomes more important during your luteal phase where you might experience cravings resulting from hormonal fluctuations. Try to opt for smaller meals throughout the day, add plenty of fibre and protein to your meals, which will keep you full throughout the day and avoid eating processed food as much as possible. Preparing your meals weekly, stocking up on snacks such as fruits, nuts and yogurt, making sure you drink plenty of water during the day is often. sufficient to ensure you follow a healthy diet.

Hi there, I hope you are well. Here's how you can eat as per each phase of your menstrual cycle. 1) MENSTRUAL PHASE (1-3 -7days)- This is the phase when your endometrial lining is shed and the estrogen and progesterone levels are low. You need to eat foods rich in fibre, protein, good fats , and rich in antioxidants. Pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, kidney beans, bell peppers, red- black grapes, berries are good to consume during this stage. - Follicular phase (3-7 until 12)- During this phase your Estrogen levels are high as there is development of follicles and magnesium levels are low. So, you must include berries, lean meat, lentils, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, avocado, broccoli, citrus fruits, oats,etc. - Ovulatory phase( 12-16)- During this phase there is release of an egg and hence, Estrogen levels are it's peak. Foods rich in fibre can help with increasing Estrogen levels. Salmon, grapes, berries, spinach, lean meat, muskmelon, lentils, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds are great options.

During the menstrual phase, increase your intake of iron-rich foods like green leafy vegetables, lean red meat, lentils, and beans to replace iron lost from bleeding.

In the follicular phase, focus on magnesium-rich foods like pumpkin and flax seeds, lentils, mung beans, broccoli, lettuce, zucchini, avocado, citrus, and pomegranate to help warn off period pain and reduce the effects of estrogen.

What supplements are recommended for menopause?
You would generally need calcium and vitamin d supplements once you hit your 40s. As you grow older your calcium absorption decreases and it is very important to maintain certain calcium levels for your bone and muscle strength. Vitamin d is needed for better absorption of calcium as well as for good mood regulation. Apart from that most other supplements get prescribed based on deficiency.
Menopause means stopping of female hormones, especially Estrogen. Because it is necessary for your vagina as well as your overall health, you can take so many natural Medicines instead of taking just supplements. You may face vaginal dryness, mood swings/ emotional ups and downs and osteoporosis. Also hot flushes irritates most. Just supplements are not sufficient if these symptoms are irritating you. Then Take proper consultation with your doctor. Natural medicines are more useful in my opinion.

I'm facing menopause problem these days.my mood swings are in such a way that I can not control them.
Hi there, I hope you are well. -Facing mood swings during the phase of premenopause and menopause happens to be common due to a decrease in the levels of Estrogen and progesterone. - Your body is undergoing a change and hence, fluctuations in hormone levels can cause mood swings. - However, if your mood swings are getting difficult for you to handle, then, see a doctor, and get necessary blood tests done, if needed. - Also, start by focussing on your diet, getting some movement daily, and also try yoga and meditation ✨✨ I hope this helps.

Are there any dietary supplements you recommend to support my menstrual health based on my individual needs?
Hey there! 🌸 Looking to boost your menstrual health? Consider adding these essentials to your routine: Iron for replenishing lost blood, Vitamin B6 to ease those pesky PMS symptoms, Magnesium for calming those cramps, Omega-3 fatty acids to soothe inflammation, and don't forget Calcium for bone health and mood stability. Your body will thank you for the extra support!

There is no restriction for your diet during your menstrual cycle. Nor are there any foods that you necessarily should eat, except for foods high in iron. Because of the blood loss, there is also some iron loss w/menstruation. Therefore, foods high in iron content can help replace the iron stores that women need. These foods can include dark chocolate in small amounts, molasses, and then green leafy veggies such as spinach, beef, turkey, etc. You can google for a more comprehensive list. Otherwise, no special diet is required.
