Struggling With PMS? THIS Calm Cycle Tea Will Help You

Premenstrual Syndrome is a condition that not everyone is comfortable discussing or feels the need to discuss. Approximately 3 out of 4 women say they have Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) symptoms at some point in their lifetimes, including mild symptoms.

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a more severe form of PMS that affects less than 5% of women of childbearing age. Often, it occurs in women suffering from chronic stress, depression, or a history of postpartum depression. In addition, it can get worse as you approach menopause, which is when you’re approaching your 40s or mid-40s.

Premenstrual syndrome prevalence varies from country to country. Globally, premenstrual syndrome occurs in 47.8% of women. Most PMS in India has ranged from 14.39% to 74.4%. (Based on the latest reports)

That became an utmost need for Luke Coutinho and his team to find a product they could recommend to clients, friends, and family.

To begin with, let’s understand what PMS is and why it is so important to address it. ACOG defines premenstrual syndrome (PMS) as the cyclic occurrence of physical and emotional symptoms that occur five days before menstruation and disappear within four days after menstruation in three consecutive cycles with severe enough effects to interfere with regular activity.

Every woman experience PMS differently. The symptoms can be physical, such as nausea or bloating, or emotional, like sadness or mood swings. In addition, your symptoms may change with time. His client usually mentions the following symptoms, which are a combination of physical and emotional symptoms:

● Anger outbursts
● Feeling depressed (low mood)
● Lack of precision
● A feeling of anxiety
● Irritability
● The feeling of abdominal bloating
● Headache
● Swelling of the extremities
Sexual interest decreases
● Emotional eating

What causes PMS?

It was crucial to understand the root cause of the problem. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is common among women as their bodies undergo several hormonal changes near the start of their cycles. The only weird thing is when the symptoms begin to affect day-to-day life.

The leading cause of PMS symptoms is progesterone – a female hormone. The metabolites of progesterone, allopregnanolone and pregnenolone are potent neuroactive steroids responsible for modulating GABA. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, is essential for controlling stress, anxiety, alertness, and seizures. The progesterone metabolites allopregnanolone and binds with the GABA receptor in the brain. As a result of this binding, the receptor becomes less sensitive to GABA and decreases serotonin levels, resulting in premenstrual syndrome symptoms.

PMS can occur for a variety of reasons. It can be caused by stress at work for many. For others, it can be their age, marital status, excessive coffee intake, or prolonged menstrual cycles. It might surprise you, but even stress like parents’ income can have an impact and cause premenstrual syndrome. Many women take pain killers during or before their cycle, but what you eat will decide how your body feels and how it replenishes during the period cycle.

If not handled at the right time, PMS can negatively impact health-related quality of life, and this is real. Yet, it receives less attention than it deserves, and it is not a single event that comes and goes. It’s a concern women and young girls deal with month on month.

PMS is not the only health issue women need relief from. About half of women suffering from PMS also suffer from another health problem. These other problems may increase in severity during PMS.

Many conditions overlap with PMS, but the most common ones are depression and anxiety. Depression and anxiety symptoms are similar to PMS and may worsen before or during your period.

Gas, cramps, and bloating are some symptoms of IBS. Symptoms of IBS can worsen before your period. PMS cramps are more common in women with bladder pain syndrome. PMS may also exacerbate specific health issues, such as asthma, allergies, and migraines.

To address this root cause, we created a formula with four scientifically studied ingredients to balance this monthly hormonal change and thus help our emotional and physical wellbeing.

Our goal was to develop a product that could be easily incorporated into a person’s everyday life and be easy to consume. For that reason, we developed the idea of creating a loose tea blend.

About Luke Curated: PMS Calm Cycle Tea

Luke Coutinho PMS calm tea

“What are your expectations from tea preparation that can help calm PMS symptoms?”

Luke Coutinho put forth this question to his wife and team to gain their perspective and understanding.

There were two responses, a healthy menstrual cycle and hormonal balance with no mood swings. Using our decade long experience in handling hormonal cases and in-depth knowledge, this is how we began working very closely with Dancing Leaf to create a blend that will be natural, caffeine-free and fit the requirements.

A PMS tea is a trusted confidante and companion that acts as a natural remedy to ease the body of cramps and pain caused by premenstrual syndrome. It aims to provide an entirely natural and calming mechanism to regulate menstruation. With its understated powerhouse of delicate nutrients and wholesome ingredients, this therapeutic tisane is, in fact, a healthy and complementary mixture. Based on the literate survey, a thoughtful combination of ingredients is created to provide you with adequate nutrients to help calm you during stressful times. The soothing and tranquility of chamomile adds a level of ease to a brew otherwise packed with natural wellness and healing properties.

Key Benefits:

It was important to us as a team to develop a product we could all easily incorporate into our daily lives. We thought a warm cup of tea would be a perfect fit! A combination of nutrients used to make the formula is designed to balance hormones, alleviate moods, and promote a healthy menstrual cycle. We’ll discuss each benefit in detail here:

Helps Alleviate Menstrual Pain & Cramps:

Chamomile is widely used to manage and alleviate PMS. Chamomile tea has been shown to have antispasmodic properties, which makes it practical for relieving painful cramps that are caused by menstruation.

Acts As an Anti-Inflammatory Agent:

Many times, you might notice swelling in your body. This could be one of the PMS symptoms, But, why do they even occur? Have you ever wondered? This happens because of an increase in chronic inflammation. During menstruation, the cells that line the uterus, also called endometrial cells, break down and release large amounts of inflammatory prostaglandins. As a result of these chemicals, the uterus’ blood vessels are constricted and the muscle layer contracts, resulting in constipation. Anti-inflammatory foods can promote blood flow and relax your uterus. PMS Calm tea is made using four anti-inflammatory ingredients, and hence 2 cups a day can help keep inflammation at bay.

Helps Reduce Bloating & Water Retention:

The herb chamomile is also regarded as a carminative that helps soothe the stomach and help with gassiness or bloating during the month or even when you don’t have a period. Due to its high antioxidant content, cinnamon can help relieve symptoms of bloating because it is rich in nutrients.

Helps Reduce Anxiety & Stress:

Chamomile tea has also been shown in some studies on humans to alleviate anxiety and irritability caused by PMS. Chamomile is also helpful in reducing stress, anxiety, and tension because Glycine, Apigenin, Luteolin, and flavonoids can stimulate and relax the central nervous system, which may explain why it can also help decrease stress levels and anxiety levels.

Supports Healthy Cycle:

Daily consumption of this tea can result in a healthy menstrual cycle due to the above benefits. Also, those with PCOS can benefit from this since it helps normalize hormones, has a beneficial effect on their menstrual cycle and enhances their general wellbeing.

Completely Caffeine Free:

Intake of caffeine can trigger PMS symptoms, and this is an entirely caffeine-free preparation. Also, it is available in two varieties – loose tea and tea bags, which makes it even more convenient.

Star Ingredients:

Red Raspberry Leaves:

Red Raspberry leaves have been used to treat menstrual cramps for ages. Red raspberry leaves are extremely rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, and are a good source of calcium, iron, and potassium. Studies have shown that drinking red raspberry leaf tea can reduce PMS symptoms. Fragrance, a compound in red raspberry leaves, helps tone and tighten muscles in the pelvic area and reduce the cramping associated with menstruation. That’s not all, 28 grams of red raspberry leaves contain 3.3 mg of iron, and enough iron can combat the anaemia which women with heavy menstrual cycles often experience.

Menstrual cramps, and other PMS symptoms, may be the result of hormonal imbalances. Herbal remedies may help ease PMS symptoms. Chamomile is among the most commonly used herbs in PMS treatment. A cup of Chamomile tea can alleviate menstrual cramps due to its antispasmodic properties. Several compounds in chamomile tea, such as Apigenin, suppress the effects of highly excitatory neurotransmitters and hormones and soothe a stressed sympathetic nervous system.

Furthermore, chamomile tea helps modulate the actions of dopamine and serotonin, helping to relieve depressive symptoms or reduce their impact. The antioxidant properties of chamomile tea also target inflammation within the immune system and inhibit COX, which reduces pain sensation. Thus, chamomile’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties have also proven effective in managing PMS symptoms.

Ceylon Cinnamon:

Not all cinnamon is created equal. In Cassia, there is a compound called coumarin which, in large doses, may be toxic. Studies have shown that Ceylon (“Srilankan”) cinnamon contains less coumarin than Cassia cinnamon. A cup of cinnamon tea may help relieve PMS symptoms and painful menstrual cramps. In addition to reducing bleeding and nausea, it may also reduce vomiting and nausea during menstruation.

Moreover, Ceylon cinnamon is also packed with antioxidants called proanthocyanidins. Other benefits include antimicrobial and antiparasitic activities, digestive health, and blood pressure reduction. A compound in cinnamon, cinnamaldehyde, is responsible for the sweet smell and the flavour of that spice which means it’s a great way to tame sugar cravings that are often experienced by women going through PMS.

Star Anise:

Star anise is one of the essential ingredients of Chinese medicine and is widely regarded to have an antiviral effect. Several compounds in anise seed may reduce hot flashes and even prevent bone degeneration in some women. A study of 72 women with hot flashes conducted over four weeks administered either a placebo or a capsule containing 330mg of anise seed three times a day. Nearly 75% of those taking anise experienced a reduction in the severity and frequency of their hot flashes. Star anise has also been shown to cause menstrual cramps and pain.

It is important to remember that no single product can do wonders for you without a holistic approach. These tips can help you stay healthy over the long haul and may bring relief from PMS symptoms and the PMS Calm Cycle Tea

  • Make sure that you stay active all month long. Exercise can help relieve symptoms such as depression, difficulty concentrating, and fatigue, by boosting happy hormones, aka endorphins.
  • Try to choose healthy food and beverages most of the time. Avoiding foods and drinks that contain caffeine, salt, and sugar before your period may reduce PMS symptoms.

  • Do not smoke; in one large study, women who smoked reported more PMS symptoms and worse PMS symptoms than women who did not smoke. 
  • Eat foods rich in calcium and magnesium, such as yoghurt, leafy green vegetables, nuts and oilseeds.
  • Meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises are some relaxation therapies. Some may also benefit from massage, or a simple chat with friends can act as a relaxation therapy.
