Kick up the calcium Low-fat dairy -- from milk to yogurt, cheese to ice cream -- is an important bone-building and strengthening component to any woman's diet, regardless of your PMS symptoms (or lack thereof). But in fact, because this form of dairy is also high in calcium, it's especially vital for helping you cope. Why? Research from the Mayo Clinic shows that you can reduce up to almost half of all symptoms (including mood swings, depression, and menstrual cramps) of PMS by simply consuming 1200 mg of calcium daily. Because you likely can't consume this much in food, add a supplement to your daily routine -- all month long. Take it in the morning, with food, to avoid headaches or nausea.
