Reduce Cortisol Levels

When it comes to PMS symptoms, the key is to do things that naturally raise your progesterone level. One of the things you can do is reduce your cortisol levels. Cortisol is your stress hormone and when stress becomes a chronic issue; your body will stop producing cortisol on its own. Your body will then call on progesterone to make more cortisol. This cycle then causes depletion in progesterone leading to PMS symptoms.”
