Feel good again: Herbal supplements for PMS

Are you seeking a way out of severe PMS symptoms? If your daily dose of evening primrose oil doesn’t seem to be enough for you, you can also find relief in herbal supplements. Many believers of these herbs are strong advocates of their efficacy but it’s important to note that natural remedies such as those mentioned in this article will take some time to be effective — at least six months. What these herbs seek to do is to normalize and rebalance your body.

Chaste berry (Vitex agnus-castus).As a hormonal balancer, this herb regulates the production of hormones in your body.

Pasque flower (Anemone pulsatilla). Highly toxic as a flower, it is only used as a treatment in its dried form which soothes abdominal pain.

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is known for its wound-healing properties and it also reduces heavy bleeding during menstruation.

Sage (Salvia officinalis), red clover (Trifolium pratense), blue cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides) and black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) enhances the body’s natural supply as they are they contain chemical precursors of oestrogen. Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) also performs the same function but it curiously does not have any ostrogen precursor properties.

Wild yam (Dioscorea villosa) encourages the production of progesterone and is the only known herb that can do so. This Mexican plant was initially used in the manufacture of contraceptive pills. The advantage of wild yam is that it doesn’t raise sebum levels.

Red raspberry (Rubus ideaus) is a gentle herb that normalizes blood flow and reduces painful menstrual cramps.

Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale) and burdock (Arctium lappa) are tonics that help improve liver function, which in turn, aid in eliminating unwanted hormones from the body.
