Ginger root is the world’s most commonly used medicinal herb & it has tons of health benefits. It can help lower blood sugar levels, which can improve your ability to lose weight and decrease bloat. Ginger also contains substances known as gingerols that reduce and eliminate inflammation and turn off pain-causing compounds in the body. Ginger is also a well-researched remedy to relieve nausea.
Chamomile contains antispasmodic qualities that help relieve muscles spasms, making it an excellent choice for dealing with painful menstrual cramps. Drinking the tea also reduces the feelings of irritability and anger, which often accompany PMS.
White Willow bark contains the natural compounds that are found in the popular pain reliever, Aspirin. In fact, aspirins original ingredients were derived from this very tree. White willow bark is a great herb for relieving all types of pain, including pain caused by PMS. Whether you experience cramps, back pain, or headaches, this bark is sure to knock the pain right out. But beware – if you’re allergic to aspirin, do not use this herb, as it contains the same active compounds.
Cramp Bark’s name comes from its traditional use of relieving menstrual cramps. It also acts as a powerful aid to reduce high blood pressure.
Cinnamon has been proven effective for menstrual pain, reduces menstrual flow and may help induce a cycle in women with PCOS. It has also been proven effective for infertility. Cinnamon contains a natural chemical called cinnamaldehyde, which studies show increases the hormone progesterone and decreases testosterone production in women, helping to balance hormones. Studies also show cinnamon greatly reduces insulin resistance.
Siberian Ginseng helps eliminate fatigue, supports the immune system, improve memory and mental alertness, and reduce insomnia. Research also shows that ginseng can improve anxiety and depression caused by stress as well as inflammatory diseases. As an all-around bonus, it can also increase sex drive.
Licorice Root, Do oily skin and breakouts plague you as part of your PMS symptoms? It might be due to testosterone. Licorice can help because it blocks the production of those androgens (predominantly male hormones) that cause your pimples to show up everywhere! Licorice root has a long history in Chinese medicine to fight microbes and viruses. It also increases energy and decreases inflammation. Note: Do not take this herb if you have high blood pressure.
Stinging Nettle, cleanses your liver and enhances the liver’s ability to process estrogen more effectively, which reduces PMS symptoms. As a diuretic, nettle increases the secretion and flow of urine, helping with fluid retention, bloating and bladder infections. High in calcium and magnesium, this herb also cleanses and detoxifies the system of harmful toxins that may be affecting fertility.
Peppermint helps aid the relief of numerous PMS and menopausal symptoms. It has been used in treating irritable bowel syndrome, breastfeeding discomfort, heartburn, migraines, tension headache and to reduce muscle spasms & cramps
