Understanding your body and providing nourishment tailored to your female cycle can significantly benefit your overall well-being. While menstruating, it is common to crave comforting foods due to a reduction in estrogen and serotonin levels.

It is also worth noting that indulging in high-quality dark chocolate can offer solace during this time.
