How Menstium Works
Several herbs found in Menstium have been used traditionally in Chinese medicine to relieve premenstrual maladies, such as chasteberry. The suppleent also contains the mineral magnesium, which has been scientifically found to reduce symptoms of bloating, breast tenderness, and weight gain during PMS. The ingredient list is rounded off with vitamins like B6, which is also studied to help allay symptoms of PMS.
- Vitamin E (d-Alpha Tocopheryl Succinate) - antioxidant that prevents free radical damage
- Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL) - maintains normal nerve function, creates hemoglobin, breaks down proteins, and balances blood sugar
- Magnesium (Magnesium Oxide) - maintains normal muscle and nerve function, supports a healthy immune system, regulates blood glucose levels, and more vital roles
- Chasteberry Extract (Vitex agnus-castus) (fruit) - phytoestrogenic herb added that also balances emotions and mood before and during menses
- Dong Quai Extract(Angelica sinensis) (root) - phytoestrogen added to help combat cramps, irregular periods, fatigue, and anemia from heavy flow
- Licorice Extract (Glycyrrhiza glabra) (root) - herb that is traditionally used to alleviate pain and cramps characteristic of dysmenorrhea
- L-Theanine - amino acid that helps relax the mind without causing drowsiness
