Evaluating The Effects Of Vitamin D And Vitamin E Supplement On Premenstrual Syndrome: A Randomized, Double-blind, Controlled Trial

Effect Decrease
Values PMS rating. Mean + SD. Placebo: -2.15 (1.93) Vitamin E: -5.52 (3.31)
Trial Design Randomized trial
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 56
Sex Female
Age Range 13-17, 18-29, 30-44
Notes for this study:
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.
