​In all the articles on our blog, we talk about the importance of nutrition during the period. This is because the most crucial factor in our physical activities and reactions is what we eat and drink.
In other words, if you pay more attention to what you eat and drink during your period, you can significantly reduce your pain.
So what should you watch out for during this time?
One of the most important points is salt consumption. Consuming salt during the period increases water retention in the body. If you say that you cannot reduce salt consumption during this time, our best suggestion would be to flavor the dishes with spices.
The mineral iron, which women generally lack, decreases even more during the period. It is essential to take vitamin C while eating iron-rich foods to facilitate its absorption. For this, you can consume one glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, which is a rich source of vitamin C, or a salad with lots of greens and peppers, especially with meat dishes.
Another mineral that decreases during the period is magnesium. Decreased magnesium is also one of the reasons for the candy crisis. 
Therefore, you can include dark green leafy vegetables rich in magnesium, whole grains, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, bananas, avocados, dried fruits, and legumes in your diet. Moreover, calcium consumed along with magnesium has a relaxing effect on the body. A cocoa banana prepared with warm cinnamon milk is both soothing and satisfying.
