On days I struggle with heavy flow and crazy cramps, a steaming cup of a drink that contains jaggery comforts me and how. This is all because jaggery contains several essential nutrients like sodium and potassium, proving to be very effective in treating menstrual problems. If you’re experiencing mood swings, cramps, and other symptoms during menstruation, jaggery can do wonders for your period problems. In addition, jaggery is rich in iron and folate, which ensures that a normal level of blood cells is maintained in your body. In fact, this can even increase hemoglobin content in blood, thus preventing weakness due to blood loss during menstruation.
