PMS Defense is a special formulation of powerful female herbs designed to ease menstrual chaos, relieve water retention, and support the liver's hormone regulation function. It contains chaste tree berry, blue cohosh, ginger root and dandelion root.
Chaste tree berry, also known as chasteberry or vitex berry, is widely used in Europe. It is a powerful aid in dealing with PMS, a cluster of symptoms that includes abdominal cramps, breast pain, fluid retention, and emotional distress. PMS affects 75% of menstruating women and symptoms may range from mild to extreme. As a tonic herb, chaste tree berry influences body processes back to “center”, regardless of the direction of the imbalance.
Blue cohosh is a traditional North American herbal remedy. It has been used to stimulate menses and alleviate menstrual cramps. Native Chippewa Americans used this herb to ease cramping pain during labor. To this day, it remains a popular, all-natural way to ease menstrual cramps and muscular tension. It also helps to reduce bloating and water retention. Pregnant women should not take blue cohosh.
Ginger root, a tropical perennial growing to a height of two feet, is the most widely used and cultivated herb in the world. Billions of people use it daily as food and medicine. Records of its medicinal and economic importance can be traced back 5,000 years in Greek literature. As testimony to its value, in the Middle Ages, one pound of ginger was approximately equal to the price of a sheep. Fifth-century Chinese sailors used ginger as a life-saving source of vitamin C on long voyages, years before British physician Dr. James Lind discovered that limes could prevent scurvy. Ginger is a major herb in traditional systems of medicine including Ayurveda, Chinese, Japanese, and Unani. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginger is known as jiang, meaning "to defend". It is used either fresh or dried in nearly two thirds of all herbal formulas. Ginger contains at least 100 chemical constituents. Gingerols and shogoals are the chemical components responsible for ginger´s hot zing. Ginger root is a systemic tonic, immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory and circulatory agent. Its herbal action helps to relieve abdominal cramps and stimulates menstruation.
Dandelion root is the quintessential liver herb. The liver is responsible for hundreds of functions that affect the entire body. It manufactures, processes, and regulates a variety of hormones and directs others to perform their proper function in other parts of the body. In women, the liver plays a key role in regulating reproductive hormones, primarily estrogens. One way in which it does this is by producing bile, which breaks down excess hormones. Human and animal studies show that dandelion root helps the body increase the production and flow of bile, which helps to keep estrogen and other hormones at healthy levels. Imbalances in the ratio between estrogen and progesterone are linked to PMS. Supporting healthy liver funciton is essential to hormone balance.
