Raise your hand if you’re sick and tired of PMS!
At Canna Relief, it’s not uncommon for customers to ask us how to relieve cramping, fatigue, mood swings and other PMS-related symptoms. So here are a few supplements to consider to help with PMS and improve your quality of life:
- Nature’s Bounty Gentle Iron Plus (90 capsules): Did you know that heavy periods can cause anemia? This occurs when your body doesn’t have the proper amount of red blood cells to provide your tissues with oxygen. In turn, this lowers your iron levels. So start replenishing your iron stores with these iron capsules, which also support immune function and reduce free radicals. Each capsule contains 28mg of iron, as well as vitamin C, folate and B12.
- Nature’s Way Wild Yam Root (100 capsules): Can’t get out of bed because of cramps? Then check out this natural supplement. Wild yam root is traditionally used as an herbal remedy for relieving abdominal and menstrual pain. Bonus: it’s also a natural anti-inflammatory traditionally used for sore joints! Each capsule contains 425mg of wild yam root; take two capsules three times a day with food.
- Joova Hormone Balance Topical Cream (50g): This hormone balance cream for women is suitable for PMS and menopausal symptoms! Just apply a pea-size amount of cream in the crease of your elbow or wrist three times a day. It’s known to help alleviate symptoms such as breast pain and tightness, constipation, diarrhea, hot flashes, and cramping. For topical use only.
- Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil (60 softgels): Containing hemp seed oil, these capsules are an easy way to boost your intake of omegas. (And no refrigeration required!) PMS sufferers may want to consider upgrading their amount of omega-3s. According to one study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine, “It appears that omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the psychiatric symptoms of PMS including depression, nervousness, anxiety, and lack of concentration and may also reduce the somatic symptoms of PMS including bloating, headache and breast tenderness.”
