Essential fatty acids may help relieve PMS symptoms.

Researchers at a Brazilian university found that taking a dietary supplement containing fatty acids significantly reduced PMS symptoms.

The study did find that the women who took the supplements for six months saw a bigger benefit than those who only took them for three months.

The study appears in the current Reproductive Health Journal.
