Take fish oil supplements
Fish oil supplements, which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, offer a number of benefits for several systems including your heart and brain. But did you know they can also relieve period cramps? One study evaluated the pain reduction in two groups of women: one group received fish oil supplements every day of their cycle, and the other group just took ibuprofen the moment pain began. The group that took the fish oil saw much greater pain reduction than that which took the ibuprofen.
