The most common recommendation in western medicine is to take an over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen, naproxen or acetaminophen which I’ve personally never been a fan of. The constant digestion of said medication each month, for the duration that you’ve had your cycle since puberty can cause damage to your liver and other major organs like your heart. I’ve always tried to limit my consumption of pills or just go without all together and focus on natural remedies like a heating pad, tea, and aromatherapy. Our new product is rooted in Chinese Medicine, tested through centuries of use.
In a 2008 report, scientists sized up 39 studies and concluded that Chinese herbs may alleviate menstrual pain more effectively than over-the-counter pain medications. Most study participants were given formulas containing five or six herbs. So lets dive into the power of natural remedies like herbal tea, shall we?
Red dates and longan tea is a one of the most common confinement drinks. Dried longan is ‘warm’ and extremely beneficial to the heart and kidneys. Combined with the superpower of red dates in nourishing the blood, this drink is brewed to revitalize overall body and health wellness. Besides being a delicious tea, it is also good for skin complexion – so ladies, drink up!
Red dates can help protect the liver, lower cholesterol levels and boost the immunity system while goji berries are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, help reduce blood glucose, and high in protein and fiber. This tea also nourishes blood, promotes energy, balances mood and spirit, beautifies the skin, and delays aging. It is exactly what you need to increase the health and circulation of blood, get glowing skin, and reap anti-aging properties. A rich source of iron and phosphorous, red dates help regulate blood circulation and increase blood flow. It’s also been proven to have calming effects on the brain and nervous system, helping to relieve the anxiety that goes hand in hand with PMS.
Ginger As an interesting fact, the reason ginger works so well for nausea is because it actually binds to a receptor known as the HT3 receptor (3) (which stops the nausea signal to the brain). If you’re someone who gets nauseous before your period, than this tea is definitely right for you. Ginger’s powerful anti-inflammatory effects have been shown in research studies to reduce menstrual pain & nausea as effectively as the drugs mefenamic acid and ibuprofen. The less pain the less bloating, that’s for sure! Its antioxidant properties is an added bonus in preventing heart disease and aging.
Goji berries are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help boost the immune system and protect the body against harmful bacteria and viruses.
Rose in the tea is made from the petals and buds of the rose bush. It's naturally caffeine-free, a good source of hydration, rich in antioxidants, and will help relieve menstrual pain.
