A new study says women who enjoy a diet rich in vitamin B, have less risk of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Researchers found that women who consumed foods like spinach and fortified cereal had about a 25 percent lower risk of PMS. However, they said the same was not true for women who got their vitamin B from supplements.
But researchers cautioned that it's not just taking in B vitamins that does the trick. Rather, it's that women who eat more of the vitamins also have other health habits that have an effect on their PMS.
The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
