Vitamin D might just cure your period cramps

 
As soon as those nagging cramps make their debut during that time of the month, most of us go reaching for the pain relievers. No longer, babes! It might just be time to put down that giant cup of coffee and your bottle of Tylenol.  There’s an au natural way to bid those annoyances adieu.


A recent small study
in Italy discovered that all you need is a bit of Vitamin D. Scientists found that a high dose of Vitamin D3 was enough to drop the pain levels of the women involved in the study by 41 percent. Blood tests performed on these women also showed Vitamin D deficiency, leading the experts involved to suggest a link between this deficiency and excruciating period cramps.

 

The recommended daily of D is 600 IU, but researchers are beginning to suspect that it is far too low. The women in the study were given a whopping 300,000 IU! If you’re having crazy period cramps, make an appointment to chat with your doctor. He can test you for Vitamin D deficiency, and may suggest that you start taking a multivitamin or supplement to up your levels.

Fingers crossed this one’s a cure, cuties!
