 Premenstrual syndrome is defined as faulty function of the ovaries related to the women's menstrual cycle, effected over 70% to 90% of women in the US and lesser for women in Southeast Asia because of difference in living style and social structure. The syndrome also interferes women's physical and emotional states, and daily activities as a result of hormone fluctuation and occurs one to two weeks before menstruation and then declines when the period starts.

1. Is artificial sweetener safe?
We are made to believe no calories sweetener promoted control weigh(1) and misled in believing that sweetener is better than sugar, Unfortunately, consumption sweetener was associated to weigh gain  in the study of a sample of 22,231 adults(2)
 In fact, it is not true. Sugar helps to provide energy for our body need, over consumption is the problem while sweetener contains aspartame, the substance causes more harm than good to our body including brain(4) and heart(3) and symptoms of pre menstrual syndrome such as depression, mood change(4) and anxiety(5).

2. Serotonin
Artificial sweetener depresses the nervous system(9) in fighting against stress resulting in less levels of serotonin(7) being produced leading to mood swing and depression(4).

3. Amino acids
Amino acids are important for liver in protein metabolism(8). Artificial sweetener contains high levels of aspartic and phenylalanine  over 150 times sweeter than sugar, taking artificial sweetener may cause over dose of such amino acids(10) resulting in increasing the risk of nervous tension leading to memory lose, mood swing, depression and symptoms of PMS(4).

4. Methanol
 When digest, methanol in the sweetener converts to formaldehyde(13) which is toxic to our body resulting in unbalancing the protein metabolism of the brain(12) leading to symptoms of PMS such as mood swing, depression(4) and anxiety(5). if it is over dose.

5. Addictive
The chemical aspartame is so addictive. It is wise to stop taking artificial sweetener slowly or ask your doctor for help. Abruptly stop taking aspartame may cause withdrawal symptoms(13).

6. Obesity and metabolic syndrome
Long term consumption of non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS), particularly aspartame in perigestational period has shown to predispose offspring to develop obesity and metabolic syndrome later in life(6).
