PMS Relief

The Rooby Team

Around 80% of women suffer from hormonal imbalance, which can lead to various PMS symptoms. This happens because hormonal variations in estrogen, progesterone, and androgens affect the regularity and length of the menstrual cycle and your well-being and mood during the cycle. Usually, many women experience various unpleasant symptoms during the second phase of the menstrual cycle, particularly during the Premenstruation phase – i.e. 1-2 weeks before menstruation. The most typical PMS symptoms are:

  • bloating
  • digestive issues
  • breast tenderness
  • headaches
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • mood disorders: irritability, anxiety, depressed mood
  • insomnia

Those symptoms can affect one’s quality of life. However, many women do not take action to fight those symptoms because they think this is just the way menstruation works. But this is not the case. There are several things women can do to decrease PMS symptoms and increase their quality of life: 

  • Get active. Maintain a moderate daily level of physical activities, be that yoga, a 20 minutes walk, or highly intensive interval training – pick and choose what suits you best.
  • Try reducing your stress. Yoga or meditation can help you a lot, as well as running.
  • Prioritise getting enough sleep. This is really the foundation.
  • Eat healthily. Consume lots of fibre, and avoid eating highly processed food to the extent possible.
  • Stay hydrated. Your body needs a lot of water to function correctly.

Here at Rooby, we want to help women eat healthier and get the proper nutrients to help eliminate those nasty PMS symptoms. For example, pumpkin and flax seeds contain healthy fats, lignans, fibre, antioxidants, magnesium, and zinc. Those nutrients help support the estrogen-dominant follicular phase when the ovaries increase estrogen levels in the body. Sunflower and sesame seed supplementation in phase 2 (i.e. after the ovulation) supports progesterone increases in the luteal phase, thanks to lignans, vitamins B1, B6, and E, calcium, selenium, and flavonoids. This can help you maintain the regularity of your cycle and naturally smooth out unpleasant PMS symptoms.

Supporting your organism in its menstrual journey by implementing the rotation of seeds in your diet is known as seed cycling. Many women have used seed cycling for decades, and many nutritionists endorse it as a natural, gentle way to support your organism through a proper diet.

At Rooby, we are always here to support you in your well-being journey; that’s why Rooby Bars are more than a mean to the seed cycle because they contain superfoods and other tasty ingredients, like cacao nibs and dried fruits. If you have any questions, just write us an email at hereforyou@rooby.eu, and we will do our best to answer them!

Follicular Phase

From day 1 to day 14

Follicular Phase

From day 1 to day 14

In the follicular phase (first half of your cycle) estrogen level increases. Nutrients from flax and pumpkin seeds naturally regulate healthy estrogen levels. In particular, lignans of which flax seeds is a great source, help in reducing the breast pain and in clearing the body of excess estrogen. Both flax and pumpkin seeds are also rich in zinc and magnesium which minimize period related cramps and bleeding intensity as well as alleviate PMS symptoms and boost your mood. Flax and pumpkin seeds are also a rich source of healthy fats: omega-3 and omega-6 which are essential for optimal hormone production and your overall health and beauty.

Luteal Phase

Luteal Phase

From day 15 to day 28

Luteal Phase

From day 15 to day 28

In the luteal phase (second half of your cycle after ovulation) progesterone level increases. Nutrients from sesame and sunflower seeds naturally regulate healthy progesterone levels. Lignans present in sesame seeds help in regulating your cycle and detoxifying excess estrogen. By eating the combination of sesame and sunflower seeds you also take advantage of their rich nutrient profile. Vitamin E found in sunflower seeds helps to reduce the menstrual cramps, breast pain and migraine, and together with selenium serve as antioxidants boosting your overall health. Both types of seeds are also high in zinc, magnesium and vitamin B1 which support hormone balance as well.
