How Biofem PMS Works
Biofem PMS contains standardized botanical extracts, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are designed to support healthy menstruation when taken during the luteal phase – second half – of the menstrual cycle and into the first few days of menstruation, or as prescribed by your doctor. By promoting healthy hormonal levels, PMS symptoms of mood swings, sleep problems, fatigue, breast tenderness, bloating, cramps, cravings, and more can be alleviated.

- Negative reviews are not present on Amazon, possibly due to there being only two reviews online.
