Evaluating The Effects Of Vitamin D And Vitamin E Supplement On Premenstrual Syndrome: A Randomized, Double-blind, Controlled Trial
Notes for this study:
||Symptoms of PMS. Daily Symptom Record. Mean + SD. Placebo: before 35.21 (13.62), after 27.74 (12.38). Vitamin E: before 38.94 (14.29), after 22.82 (11.56).
|Number of Subjects
||13-17, 18-29, 30-44
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 56 women with PMS were allocated to either 100 mg of vitamin E or placebo daily for 4 months. The severity of symptoms was assessed through a Daily Rating Test.
While the vitamin E group saw a somewhat greater improvement in overall symptoms and cravings, depression, water retention, anxiety, and somatic changes, the difference wasn't statistically significant.
