how to reduce periods pain

For almost all women, periods are the most uncomfortable time. During this time, many women experience pain, bloating, and discomfort. This is because a lot of nutrients are lost during this process, and issues like pain, bloating, and discomfort are common when we don't get enough nutrients in our diet on a regular basis. It could also be due to lack of exercise and following a sedentary lifestyle. 

Nidhi Nahata, a nutritionist, health coach, and the founder of Bangalore's Justbe Resto Café, offers advice on how to manage pain, bloating, and discomfort during your periods.

1. Exercise
