Features of nutrition during the menstrual cycle

The menstrual cycle is a natural process that is characteristic of every woman. The normal menstrual cycle is 21 to 35 days. Often these days are accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen and lower back, exhaustion, aggressiveness. However, with proper nutrition, there is a chance to reduce discomfort.

On days 1-5

At the beginning of menstruation, the level of the hormone progesterone drops significantly. The body begins to renew itself, the membrane recedes, which continuously changes and covers the uterine cavity. Estrogen levels gradually rise.

Features of nutrition. During menstruation, calcium levels decrease . As a result, the metabolism becomes more complicated, the activity of the muscular and nervous systems is disrupted. Due to the lack of this trace element, irritability and leg cramps increase.

To minimize the risks, introduce dairy products into your diet (drink more than 1 glass of milk, eat fatty types of cheese and cottage cheese), do not forget about green vegetables (pay special attention to broccoli, which has a sufficient amount of folic acid , which normalizes estrogen levels and prevents swelling ).

Pain is reduced by foods containing antioxidants: apples, plums, citrus fruits, cabbage, and, naturally, vitamin E—soybeans and vegetable oil. The lack of potassium and magnesium is compensated by bananas, nuts (no more than 100 g per day), potatoes, apricots and watermelons.

You can restore the level of hemoglobin with the help of foods containing iron: seafood, pork and beef liver, buckwheat porridge. This is especially useful for women who suffer from heavy discharge and use intrauterine contraceptives.

Once every six months, you can drink a course of vitamins and minerals to prevent and improve your general condition . When choosing vitamins and minerals , you need to get expert advice.

You should not drink alcoholic beverages – they dilate blood vessels, increasing bleeding.

5th-14th days

Usually, by these days, the bleeding is over, and the level of estrogen in the body reaches a maximum, which means the time for conception. On the 13th day, the level of pituitary hormones, which stimulate the maturation and release of the egg from the ovary, also reaches its peak and on the 14th day ovulation occurs.

During a period of elevated estrogen levels, a woman feels sexy, active, purposeful, even bold and risky.

Features of nutrition. During this period, it is best to start a weight loss program – the body is ready to fight fat. To do this, you need to eat right and reasonably approach physical activity – the effect will be more noticeable. To improve the digestion process, speed up metabolism, you need to consume a large amount of fiber, vegetables and fruits. Porridges “Typhoon” contain the optimal ratio of soluble and insoluble fiber, natural natural prebiotic (inulin from Jerusalem artichoke), flax seeds, pieces of berries and fruits, and are a complete breakfast or a healthy snack between meals. By combining their use with Typhoon Green Coffee or Typhoon teas, you will achieve the desired results much faster.

Take on board products containing zinc: oysters, rabbit meat and beef liver. Also, this microelement is necessary for the synthesis of hormones, including sex hormones.

15-23 days

After ovulation, if the egg is not fertilized, the level of estrogen decreases markedly. The follicle from which the egg is released turns into a gland called the corpus luteum, which secretes progesterone.

These days, there is a chance that neither training nor dieting will bring noticeable results. Fluid begins to linger in the body – swelling appears, bags under the eyes in the morning, weight increases slightly. The skin often becomes more oily, and closer to menstruation, various inflammations and acne may appear. These days, pay special attention to face and body care. Shower gel active lymphatic drainage Typhoon will help get rid of excess fluid and stagnation of toxins in the skin. For facial skin prone to inflammation and acne, 3 in 1 soap Demolan or Stop Demodex soap is suitable , and for sensitive skin prone to redness, Stop Couperose gel is suitable .

Features of nutrition. If you have at least some of the above symptoms during menstruation, fatty foods, smoked meats and pickles should be excluded.

And do not forget that your well-being depends entirely on the products in the diet. Follow the advice on proper nutrition during menstruation, and it will certainly become easier for you to cope with difficulties and pain during critical days. And also do not forget about hygiene these days, Femofit gel and foam for intimate hygiene will be reliable means in this area.
