Fennel Seeds for PMT


I've been drinking a lot of Fennel seed tea recently as I move in the luteal phase of my cycle. Studies have found that fennel has an estrogenic effect, which means that it mimics the effects of estrogen which is particularly good when the progesterone kicks in and we need to find some hormonal balance. Fennel has numerous health benefits for PMT symptoms and can work for painful periods because they have anti-inflammatory and muscle calming properties. The antispasmodic and phytoestrogenic properties of fennel seeds help relax the muscles in the uterus relieving cramping. These little gems also help to release muscle tension, soothe inflammation, ease aches and pains, soothing the cramps and working as a mild analgesic compound. They can also lift your mood and beat bloating and indigestion which are other symptoms accompanying menstrual cycle.
