PMS

You’re a rhythmic, creative creature. Everything in your body, and the world around, works in cycles – from the seasons, to the moon, to your menstrual cycle. With our all natural tincture, treat the root cause of PMS and get back to your flow.

A healthy period should be free of mood swings, sugar cravings, cramps and IBS. At ANP, we support healthy menstrual cycles so you can quit PMS-ing, for good. These symptoms shouldn’t be dismissed as ‘women’s issues’. Treat the root cause of PMS and find your balance. Our PMS tincture may support:

  • Mood swings (sadness & anger)
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Fluid retention
  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Bloating
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Anxiety

Have you ever given a name to your monthly flow? If you have, is the name less like Aunt Flo and maybe something more like The Angry Red Sea? By naming it, we try to express the reality of the physical and emotional changes we experience each month… changes which are often distressing and unpleasant. But your monthly period shouldn’t make you feel like a different person. PMS is defined as a collection of mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression.

As your 5th vital sign, It provides feedback that indicates your overall health and wellbeing. A healthy menstrual cycle should arrive and go with ease. However, about 90% worldwide experience negative physical and emotional changes during the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle because of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS is your body’s way of communicating that your hormones are unbalanced. At ANP we stand for sustainable health care solutions. That’s why we target the root.

  • 90% of menstruators experience PMS every month
  • PMS symptoms are so common they are often considered ‘normal’
  • About 40% of women worldwide are diagnosed with PMS
  • 4–8% of women suffer a more serious form called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • A normal menstrual cycle should arrive without PMS symptoms and without pain

Use tincture drops twice daily all month long – 10 drops in juice or water morning and night. For optimal results, place directly under the tongue.

Take tincture daily across the entire month, not just whilst menstruating or experiencing a flare up of symptoms.

Key Ingredients

PMS tincture is firmly rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and infused with the knowledge of modern science.

Referred to as the female ginseng due to its benefits associated with women’s menstrual issues, this traditional Chinese herbal medicine has a long history of use in China, Korea and Japan. Also known as Dong Quai or Angelica Sinensis, it has been used for invigorating blood circulation and uterine blood flow for over 2000 years. It’s been shown to promote anti-spasmodic activity of the uterine muscles, relieving cramps and dysmenorrhea (period pain). Current literature states some efficacy for PMS symptoms when used in TCM multi herbal formulas.*

Herbs of special interest to women

 

This essential herb, also known as Nutgrass Rhizome or Cyperus rotundus L, helps to regulate menstrual blood flow and improve ovarian function, alleviating pain as it helps to circulate the blood. Studies have revealed that Xiang-Fu has neuroprotective effects.*

White Peony Root in Traditional Chinese Medicine helps to regulate blood flow, relieving period pain and muscle cramps. In PMS, inflammation has been explored as being a source of discomfort for women. Studies have found White Peony to have anti-inflammatory properties, inhibiting inflammatory mediators such as PGE2 (Prostaglandins). PMS is closely related to changes in oestrogen that impacts the regulation of emotions which in turn impacts regulation of serotonin neurons in the nervous system. The main ingredient of Paeonia lactiflora has a sedative effect, can improve learning and memory and regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (flight, fight or freeze). It’s also been shown to have anti-anxiety and anti-depression properties. Peony used in combination with this formula stabilises moods.*

Sometimes known as Bupleurum, this traditional medicinal herb is the most commonly used in Chinese medicine, primarily because it has a soothing and protective action on the liver. It delivers restorative benefits to your flow, with anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. It also relieves pain, normalises bowel function and has a slight tranquilising effect. Bupleurum also has a number of direct hormonal effects. A unique active ingredient called saikosaponin increases cortisol, which helps the body deal more effectively with stress. Cortisol also reduces muscle pain and headaches, and is necessary for the production of progesterone, the ‘calming’ female hormone. Saikosaponin has been shown to directly mimic the effect of progesterone.*
