Hap­pier Hor­mones

This ir­re­sistible combo is per­fect as a pick-me-up on days when PMS has you down. The gin­ger helps re­lieve men­strual pain and cramps, and the oats are high in zinc and mag­ne­sium, which can also help pre­vent and ease cramps. Ba­nanas are loaded with vi­ta­min B6, which lessens cramp­ing, and they are also high in potas­sium, which re­duces water re­ten­tion and bloat­ing.
