What Is Premenstrual Syndrome and What Causes It?
PMS refers to physical and psychological symptoms that typically occur between 7 and 14 days before a woman's period starts and can last through her period. Those symptoms include headache, mood swings, irritability, bloating, cramps, sadness, indigestion, carb cravings, breast tenderness and pain, and sleep problems.
Every woman is different. Most, but not all, have experienced PMS symptoms to some degree, at some point. However, not all get the same symptoms, and those symptoms range in severity between women, and even from month to month. About 75% of menstruating women have some symptoms of PMS occasionally, while 5% report symptoms that are severe enough to mess up most of their month.
We have developed a proprietary product at Kadence Naturals that is an all-natural all herbal supplement for PMS called Women's Health. Women’s Health is designed to assist women with the issues associated with PMS. The ingredients of Women's Health include Cramp Bark.
Research from in vitro studies reveals that Cramp Bark can block the spasms of smooth muscle. Therefore, it is not surprising that one of Cramp Bark’s most well-known uses as a traditional herbal remedy is for menstrual cramps that can accompany PMS. It has been known to help soothe even severe cramping that is associated with nausea, vomiting, and sweaty chills.
Feverfew is also an ingredient in Women’s Health. Feverfew is a traditional herb remedy commonly used to prevent headaches and migraines as well as treat arthritis and digestive issues.
Shake well before each use.
A tincture is simply a liquid extract of an herb(s) that you take by mouth. The nice thing about tinctures is they concentrate the useful chemical constituents and medicinal properties of the plant material into a liquid (usually alcohol, vegetable glycerin or apple cider vinegar). Kadence Naturals uses organic grain alcohol in our Tinctures. Tinctures are often more effective than over the counter or prescription medications without the nasty side effects.
Tinctures are best taken on an empty stomach. This gives the herb(s) a chance to get into your system undeterred. Everyone's body is different. 1-2 droppers initially is more than adequate, from there you can adjust up or down.
A single squeeze is considered one dropperful of tincture. No matter how long your dropper is one squeeze will usually provide the same amount of tincture since the bulb on the dropper is the same size. Squeeze the dropper to release a dose under your tongue. The tincture will enter your system most effectively if taken under the tongue. The tincture will taste very strong. Try to hold it under your tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. If the taste is too much you may take a sip of juice or water to rid the taste. You can also add the Tincture to your juice or water as well as swallow it.
