Vitamin D May Alleviate Menstrual Cramping


A new systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials observes a significant reduction in women suffering with menstrual cramps following vitamin D supplementation.


When given in doses of 50,000 IU per week over a period of 9 weeks, vitamin D supplements have also been shown to improve premenstrual syndrome (PMS) in adolescents. In a study carried out by researchers in Iran, the treatment was associated with a reduction in the incidence of several symptoms of PMS.

Other natural approaches that have been shown to be helpful in the control of PMS include the use of vitamin B6 or broad-spectrum micronutrient formulas containing vitamins and minerals, magnesium and evening primrose oil.

Vitamin D has also been found helpful in improving regularity in the menstrual cycle. Conversely, a decreased level of vitamin D is associated with a significantly higher likelihood of a woman having an irregular cycle.

In other research, vitamin E supplements have been found effective in relieving symptoms of menstrual migraine.
