"Others have already reported that calcium supplements appear to ease PMS, but the new research suggests both calcium and vitamin D might reduce PMS risk in the first place.
"In the current study, after adjusting for factors like the woman's age, how many children she had and whether she smoked, the researchers found the women with the highest intake of vitamin D and calcium were significantly less likely to have PMS.
"Scientist Elizabeth Bertine-Johnson said: "We observed a significantly lower risk of developing PMS in women with high intakes of vitamin D and calcium from food sources, equivalent to about four servings per day of skim or low-fat milk, fortified orange juice or low-fat diary foods such as yoghurt."
"The amounts consumed were slightly above the current recommended daily amounts in the UK, which are 800 milligrams of calcium and 5 micrograms of vitamin D. "
