Essential oils may reduce PMS symptoms

Women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS) may benefit from taking a combination of essential oils, new research suggests.
Scientists at the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil enrolled 120 women in a study which looked at the effectiveness of a pill containing essential oils.
The capsules included a combination of gamma linolenic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, other polyunsaturated acids and vitamin E.
Results show that women who took 2g capsules typically reported significant improvements in their symptoms at their three and six-month follow-ups, and there were few complaints of side-effects.
Researcher Edilberto Rocha Filho, whose findings are published in the journal Reproductive Health, commented: ‘The administration of 1 or 2g of essential fatty acids to patients with PMS resulted in a significant decrease in symptom scores.
‘Essential oil capsules can now be said to show much promise as a treatment.’
Nearly all women of child-bearing age have some premenstrual symptoms, which may include fluid retention, abdominal pain, headaches, changes to skin and hair, and weight gain.ADNFCR-554-ID-800345799-ADNFCR
