Ladies: Check out some effects of consuming red meat during your period

It's hard to predict exactly how women feel during their period. While some women barely have any symptoms, others struggle to get out of bed due to cramps, headaches, pain, and nausea. Many nutritionists and health experts have spent years debating about the benefits and risks of eating red meat. So far, they are advantages and disadvantages. So it's best you consume the red meat in moderation.

Period is one of the most sensitive moments of a woman's life. Most times, the hormonal fluctuations and pains that they experience makes them to be more emotionally sensitive. This is why it is vital for ladies to watch what they eat during their period because it can affect them positively or negatively.

The meat as we know is not really healthy for constant consumption because of the various health effects they cause.

Consuming the red meat during your period specifically affects you in a lot of way . What I am saying in essence is that consumption of red meat can worsen the pains you experience during your period because of the possibility of it causing a spike in the level of prostaglandin in your body. This is why it is advisable that you cut-out down or stay away completely from red meats during your period so as to avoid exacerbation of the ill experiences.

Although red meat produces iron when consumed which can help build your blood, it also produces prostaglandin (which is needed for the contraction of your uterus or womb) which can cause cramps. And the cramps comes with more pains.

In conclusion as a replacement for red meat, its best to consume other healthy foods such as avocado and vegetables that contains iron to help in the replenishment of the blood you loose during your periods.
