I am a 40 year old woman who suffers with severe PMS sypmtoms. I have done some research on this condition. From the research that I did it mentions taking the following vitamins and minerals: Calcium 1200-1500mg daily Magnesium-200mg daily Vitamin E-400ius Vitamin D Vitamin B6-100mg daily Evening Primrose Oil-1000mg daily Would it be best to take these vitamins individually, or is there a supplement especially for PMS which consists of all these ingredients? I have done some looking around but cannot seem to find a product like this both by Vital and other suppliers. What else can you recommend? I suffer with both the physical side effects as well as depression and mood swings.
