An overwhelming 85% of women have menstrual cycles that include discomfort and disruption – at a minimum.

Do you dread “that time of the month” when it seems like your hormones wreak havoc on your life? Are you too tired to exercise, too uncomfortable to socialize, and in too much pain to even get a good night’s sleep? You are not alone. An overwhelming 85% of women have menstrual cycles that include discomfort and disruption – at a minimum. According to the Mayo Clinic “Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) has a wide variety of signs and symptoms, including mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression. It's estimated that as many as 3 of every 4 menstruating women have experienced some form of premenstrual syndrome.”

Premense-T by LifeSeasons promotes healthy menstrual cycles and hormonal balance, nourishes reproductive tissue, supports tone and circulation. Chaste berry has been used historically to support balanced progesterone levels, promote healthy cycles and may help to ease breast tenderness as well as menstrual cramps. Dong Quai is used to support blood circulation, hormone balance, and normal cycles. Premense-T needs to be taken over a period of at least 2 months before effects will become apparent. This gives the body enough time to help hormones rebalance, so that cramps, breast tenderness, and irritability starts to diminish or become less frequent.

Symptoms tend to recur in a predictable pattern. But the physical and emotional changes you experience with premenstrual syndrome may vary from just slightly noticeable all the way to intense. Managing these symptoms while trying to function in your daily life can be extremely difficult when symptoms are severe. Some women will develop (PMDD) Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder which requires a diagnosis and further treatments, depending on how much it affects their ability to function and manage their emotions. Please consult a doctor if you feel like this may be a condition you may be dealing with.

Premense-T by LifeSeasons can be a great addition to your daily routine coupled with making changes in the way you eat, exercise and approach daily life. Eating smaller, more-frequent meals may reduce bloating and the sensation of fullness. Limiting salt and salty foods to reduce bloating and fluid retention. Eating foods high in complex carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains may also be beneficial. If you can't tolerate dairy products or aren't getting adequate calcium in your diet, a daily calcium supplement may also help. Engaging in at least 30 minutes of brisk walking, cycling, swimming or other aerobic activity most days of the week can help improve your overall health and alleviate certain symptoms, such as fatigue and a depressed mood.
