What's Fish got to do with PMS?

Fish Oil SupplementsNaturopaths and nutritionists have an array of nutritional, herbal and homoeopathic remedies at their fingertips to help women manage the often distressing symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Among these remedies, Fish Oil has been shown in a clinical trial to be particularly useful.

Clinical Trial finds Fish Oil effective for PMS

This trial involved 124 eligible women receiving either a placebo or 2 grams of fish oil per day. The severity of the symptoms was noted before the start of the trial and after 1.5 months and then 3 months of starting the trial for both groups of women. The group that received the fish oil reported greater improvements in the following range of symptoms compared to the placebo group:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Nervousness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Bloating
  • Headache
  • Breast tenderness
The results improved with increased duration of treatment. This study means we can add premenstrual syndrome to the already impressive list of complaints that fish oil has been shown to be useful for helping to manage.
