How To Manage Menstrual Cramps
Right around the time a woman is about to have her monthly periods, she may experience mild to severe pain in her lower abdomen. These painful sensations are normally referred to as cramps. Almost all women experience these painful reactions, however, in some women the pain can be very severe and agonizing. 
Just before or during monthly periods, the body produces an inflammatory chemical from the uterus called Prostaglandins. The chemical is partly responsible for the pain that is experienced in the lower abdomen.

Prostagladins are available in different types including; PGE1, PGE2 and PGE3. PGE2 is responsible for cramps while the other two hardly ever have effect except to reduce the inflammatory response to cramps. In order to find a solution to this problem, you must first of all understand what may have caused it. 
Causes of Cramps
Lack of certain nutrients and minerals in the body may lead to severe cramps. A good example of a mineral that may be lacking is Magnesium. This mineral is not available in sufficient quantities within commonly available foods and that is why so many women end up having to go through painful cramps.

While flour and some legumes contain this mineral, the quantity and quality of the mineral normally becomes compromised after the food is processed and packed.
To further understand why this mineral is important, you should know that it is responsible for over three hundred biochemical reactions within the human body. Firstly, it is vital to proper operations of the nerves and muscles. The mineral also helps in keeping the rhythm of the heart steady and ensures all bones develop correctly.

Additionally, magnesium plays a key role in making sure that the human body is immune to various kinds of diseases and infections.
Relief for Cramps
In order to get relief for your cramps, make sure to eat foods that are rich in magnesium and omega-3 fats. Examples of foods that contain magnesium include; whole grains, nuts, vegetables and some legumes.

It is equally a good idea to incorporate certain relief herbs into your diet plan just so you can get the sufficient quality and quantity of magnesium required to effectively give you the benefits mentioned above.
Magnesium can be much more effective if you avoid consuming foods that may compromise its balance within the body system. Avoiding foods that are rich in omega-6 fats or any other junk food can be a prudent idea if you wish to keep your cramps under control.

Next Steps

The next thing you need to do is keep your body fit at all times. This means you should always engage in some form of exercise on a regular basis. Exercises will help your body absorb magnesium much more easily and evenly and this will allow for better development.

A good example of an exercise you can engage in is Yoga. This exercise has very simple techniques and can be practiced by just about anyone. The techniques require very little time and energy and work well with many other effective menstrual relief methods.
