Say Goodbye to PMS - Double Wood Supplements

Laura Walko |

Mother Nature’s gift. If only it were something more enjoyable like a massage certificate, or useful like a thermal coffee cup, or joyful like a bouquet of flowers. But no. If this gift came with a receipt, it would truly be the most returned gift of all time. Your monthly period. It cares nothing for how it makes you feel, or what you have going on in your life. With such unpleasant side effects, the timing is never good. But there’s hope! Your monthly visit doesn’t have to run your life. Keep reading for tips and tricks to end the suffering for good. PERIOD.
PMS, also known as premenstrual syndromes, is defined as the time period between ovulation and menstruation when women can experience a series of unpleasant symptoms. Symptoms can range from fatigue, headaches, mood swings, acne, irritability, bloating, trouble sleeping, anxiety, cravings, muscle cramps, and nausea. PMS is common and unfortunately many of its side effects are painful and hard to ignore. According to the Mayo Clinic it is estimated that as many as 3 out of 4 women have experienced some form of PMS. And yet still, it’s hard to definitively say what causes PMS in the first place. It is believed fluctuations in estrogen as well as serotonin could have an impact. (Mayo Clinic Feb 2022) An even more hindering form of PMS is known as PMDD (premenstrual dysmorphic disorder) and can affect as many 3 million women per year (Mayo Clinic Dec 2022). Although symptoms are similar, these symptoms are far more severe and can seriously impact day to day life. 
Like with any other health related problem, the best way to improve symptoms is to take good care of yourself. Getting adequate sleep, eating healthy foods, drinking plenty of water, exercising, and avoiding drugs and alcohol are all important suggestions to follow any time of the month. Keeping allegiance to your well- being can have a positive impact, apparent as quickly as your next cycle. To make a serious impact, supplements can also help. Magnesium Acetyl - Taurate is a fantastic novel form of Magnesium, clinically proven to improve PMS symptoms and help reduce stress. This magnesium blend has a higher absorption rate than other forms, delivering higher amounts of magnesium and taurine to the brain. When taken daily, this can not only improve PMS symptoms, but also support stress levels and improve sleep.
As an avid Magnesium Acetyl- Taurate user, I can say from personal experience, it greatly diminishes PMS symptoms starting with your first cycle. I don't even realize my monthly cycle is approaching because I have virtually no systems. Truly one of my favorite Double Wood products.
