Description of Monthly Comfort (PMS Relief) 42 tabs from Source Naturals
Monthly Comfort Bio-Aligned Formula
Eighty percent of women experience physiological and emotional changes during
the premenstrual period. Up to 40% of these women experience challenges to their
well-being. Monthly Comfort is a Bio-Aligned Formula that addresses multiple
systems related to premenstrual changes: hormone balance, the liver and detoxification,
the brain and nervous system, the musculoskeletal system, and blood sugar regulation.
Monthly Comfort PMS Relief Formula
- Brain & Nervous System
Certain nutrients are essential for proper functioning of the nervous system,
including synthesis of neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that can affect
mood. The body requires phenylalanine for production of the neurotransmitters
epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. Taurine is another amino acid; it
functions as a calming neurotransmitter.
- Blood Sugar Regulation
Many women experience cravings for chocolate and carbohydrates prior to menses.
Balanced blood sugar levels are important for maintaining an even mood and
high energy levels and for reducing stress on the adrenal glands. Chromium,
a constituent of Glucose Tolerance Factor, assists insulin in transporting
glucose in the cells.
- Musculoskeletal System
Some nutrients have a relaxing effect on the nervous system, bringing ease
and comfort to muscles. Some herbs also affect the musculoskeletal system
in this way. Relaxation of the physical body and emotional wellbeing are interconnected,
so that influencing one system benefits the related system as well.
- Hormone Balance
Hormonal balance during monthly cycles is important. Chasteberry is believed
to have a regulatory effect on the female hormonal system through its action
on the pituitary gland. It has been shown to increase comfort levels in women
with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Dong quai comes from Traditional Chinese
Medicine, where it is used to build blood and promote circulation. Black cohosh
contains phytoestrogens and is also used in TCM to improve blood circulation
and to regulate and ease the menstrual cycle.
- Liver & Detoxification
One of the vital functions of the liver is the activation and breakdown of
hormones. Some holistic practitioners believe that liver function may play
a role in PMS. They theorize that a liver burdened by toxins from the environment,
food and drugs may not metabolize hormones properly, leading to imbalances
that cause discomfort. Herbs and nutrients are included to cleanse and detoxify
the liver and support liver function.
