Crankiness, bloating and fatigue are some of the common symptoms of painful periods. Menses can be very uncomfortable, and at times, drain out energy.

Here are a few foods that can help ease period cramps.

Dark chocolates: Eating a small amount of dark chocolate can actually help in easing PMS cramps and bloating as it acts as natural painkiller.

Green Tea: Drinking a cup of green tea can ease cramps as it contains flavanoids and antioxidants which also help boost immunity.

Salmon: Salmon is a rich source of Omega-3 and helps ease inflammation and PMS cramps.

Water: It flushes out all the toxins from the body and also provides fluidity for the flow of blood thereby easing menstrual pain.

Pineapple juice: Pineapples contain an enzyme called Bromelain which relaxes muscle and eases cramps.
