Do you suffer from excruciating monthly cramps? Try this…

 

Severe uterine cramps can be absolutely unbearable to women who suffer from them. The agony it causes can make having a period a horrifying experience. Unfortunately, if you are a woman that struggles with such pain, you are probably met with dismissive comments when you try to convey what you go through each cycle. In addition, you might not know where to ask for help, or might even be embarrassed to do so. If nothing works for you, or you have to take four extra-strength painkiller pills every few hours just to make Aunt Flow tolerable, have hope: Mother Nature has some effective cures, and you can gain their benefits in our Cramp Soother tincture and capsules.

 

You might be skeptical. After all, even Midol, which is formulated specifically for this purpose, might not do anything for you. But while you may not get full relief of all your symptoms, Cramp Soother can help make your periods a lot less debilitating.

 

First, let’s look at why cramps happen. Hormone-like substances called prostaglandins cause the uterus to contract, and an excess of these hormones can cause extreme pain that can radiate through the back and thighs. Most effective cramp relief formulas, including Cramp Soother, help by relaxing the uterus. Here is some information about the herbs in this formula.   

 

Black Haw: Have you ever wondered how women used to relieve cramps centuries ago? This remarkable bark has been used for centuries for its powerful anti-spasmodic properties. Black haw contains a number of compounds that relax the uterus. It has been used for centuries to treat uterine cramping and post-partum uterine spasms, as well as prevent miscarriage.

 

Cramp Bark: This bark does exactly what it says it does: it helps to relieve cramps. It is in the same genus as black haw, and these two herbs are often used together for menstrual pain relief.

 

Raspberry Leaf: This herb contains a compound called fragarine that helps to tone the uterus. Like black haw and cramp bark, raspberry leaf contains tannins that strengthen the uterus. It also helps with making periods more regular and negating symptoms of heavy bleeding.  

 

Ginger: What would we do without ginger? This incredible root increases circulation, relieves constricted blood flow, and helps to relieve inflammation. It also aids in delivering all the other amazing herbs in this formula to the uterus.

 

Valerian: You might associate this herb with restful sleep, but valerian is a helpful anti-spasmodic herb. Studies have found that valerian dramatically reduces pain in the first three days of menstruation. And you don’t need to take much of it! Valerian is a safe and effective choice.  

 

As you can see, this is one powerhouse formula! If you’re curious, give Cramp Soother a try, and send us your feedback! We love hearing from you. Here’s to happy, painless periods!
