B Vitamin-Rich Food Linked to Lower Risk of PMS

Women who eat a diet rich in B vitamins, found in foods such as spinach, have less risk of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Those who ate more B vitamin-rich foods had about a quarter lower risk of PMS.

However, this was not true for women who got their B vitamins from supplements.

Reuters reports:

"Severe PMS -- which affects about one in six women -- is sometimes treated with either birth control pills or antidepressants ... Reducing the chance of PMS through diet may be an alternative to some of these treatments, which are expensive and can have side effects".
