Aor Fem Ease 60 Veg Capsules:

A Natural Solution for Menstrual Pain.

  • Powerful, natural muscle pain formula
  • Helps relieve menstrual pain and cramping
  • May help reduce menstrual headaches
  • Clinically backed ingredients and doses

Fem Ease™ helps relieve pain associated with menstruation, is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as an analgesic and sedative and is traditionally used in Ayurveda to relieve pain and inflammation.

Many women experience pain before and during their menses that can range from mild to debilitating. Fem Ease was designed as a combination of well-studied and natural ingredients to specifically target both muscle tightness and inflammation, which contribute to menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea). L-Carnitine helps reduce muscle cramping and supports muscle recovery. Ginger reduces muscle pain and cramping related to menstruation, and has even been shown to be as effective as NSAIDs. Curcumin has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation related to menstruation, while magnesium helps relax the muscles. Magnesium and California poppy provide mood support and relaxation effects, which is important since moodiness and higher stress have been linked to greater menstrual pain. 

Fem Ease can be taken several days before and during menstruation, to help relieve the physical symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and dysmenorrhea. For mood support related to PMS, Fem Ease is best used with Fem Calm. Fem Ease can also be used by both men and women to help relax tight neck and back muscles and relieve general inflammation and reduce headache pain. Fem Ease can also benefit athletes and those who experience frequent muscle tension and discomfort for various reasons.

What Causes Painful PMS, and What Can Help? Dysmenorrhea is painful menstrual cramps that stem from the uterus. As many as 25% of women are affected by it, and up to 40% of that portion of women experience pain so severe that it disrupts daily activities, causing them to miss work, school and other activities.

Studies suggest that food, physical activity, stress and lifestyle choices are important factors for a healthy menstrual cycle. The Culprit Prostaglandins are locally acting hormones that act as pro-inflammatory molecules, and they can also make pain receptors more sensitive. The cells lining the uterus produce prostaglandins when an egg is not implanted, and this causes the uterus to contract to shed the lining that has built up over the cycle. A thicker lining is thought to produce more prostaglandins. It is thought that excessive prostaglandin production in the uterus is responsible for causing the cramping, back pain, headaches, nausea and other physical symptoms of PMS. This is what makes anti-inflammatories useful for physical PMS symptoms.

Fem Ease could be useful If you suffer from physical symptoms of PMS like cramps and muscle pain. Fem Ease is formulated with several natural ingredients that, when taken several days before and during menstruation, help relieve menstrual pain, cramps and other physical symptoms of PMS.

California poppy is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a mild sedative or sleep aid and analgesic, effects that are mediated by 5-HTP receptors in the brain which control mood. High levels of stress have been correlated with worsening of the typical symptoms associated with PMS. Therefore, reducing stress by using California poppy may help ease menstrual cramps. The analgesic effects of California poppy also help reduce pain.

Magnesium levels have been reported to be lower in women with primary dysmenorrhea. A human clinical study showed that magnesium is able to relieve premenstrual mood changes. A depressed mood has been linked with increased PMS pain; therefore, supplementing with magnesium may help decrease menstrual pain by relieving mood changes during menstruation. Magnesium also helps muscles relax and is clinically used for chronic pain and muscle spasms. Magnesium glycinate also provides glycine, an amino acid with a calming effect.

In one study on the effect of magnesium or a placebo on women with dysmenorrhea, magnesium had a therapeutic effect on both back pain and lower abdominal pain on the second and the third day of the cycle. In addition, there was a marked reduction in absences from work due to the dysmenorrhea.

In another study, treatment with magnesium versus a placebo started on the 15th day of the cycle and continued till the next menses. Although both treatments reduced pain associated with menstruation, those receiving magnesium had significantly less pain than the placebo group. Magnesium also improved premenstrual complaints, and the number of days the women suffered from menstrual headaches were only reduced in the magnesium group.

Curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory that regulates prostaglandin production, is the most active curcuminoid component of turmeric. Turmeric is a yellow Indian spice used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to relieve pain of menstruation due to blood stasis and in Ayurvedic medicine to help relieve abdominal cramps and intestinal disorders. 1-4 grams per day of dried rhizome has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation, and 3-9 grams per day can be used for menstruation. Thankfully, there is Longvida® curcumin, a cutting edge, highly bioavailable and effective curcumin formula which provides the equivalent of 4 grams of curcumin in just three capsules of Fem Ease.

L-Carnitine is made from the amino acids lysine and methionine; it reduces oxidative stress in the muscles and supports muscle recovery and muscle tissue repair. Inflammation is always accompanied by oxidative stress. L-Carnitine may help mitigate the increased oxidative stress and decreased anti-oxidant levels that have been reported to be associated with primary dysmenorrhea cases. 500 mg of L-carnitine daily for 12 weeks improved muscular symptoms such as muscle weakness, fatigue, and cramps/aches in 66% of the 30 patients studied who were undergoing hemodialysis.

Ginger is known to help prevent nausea and vomiting. However, Ginger has also been shown to be as effective as NSAIDs in treating primary dysmenorrhea. Ginger reduces prostaglandin activity and synthesis, which helps relax the uterus muscles and reduces pain.

In a double-blind comparative clinical trial, 150 participants suffering from primary dysmenorrhea enrolled to take either one of 250 mg of ginger rhizome powder (4:1 extract), 250 mg mefenamic acid or 400 mg ibuprofen four times per day for 3 days. At the end of treatment, the severity of dysmenorrhea significantly decreased in all groups and no significant differences were found between the groups in severity of dysmenorrhea, pain relief, or satisfaction with the treatment. This shows that ginger was as effective in relieving the pain of dysmenorrhea as two NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) commonly used for menstrual pain.

In a placebo-controlled trial, 70 participants took either 1.5 g of ginger rhizome powder or placebo per day for 3 days for primary dysmenorrhea. Ginger reduced menstrual pain significantly more than the placebo.

In another study, 120 participants took either 500 mg of ginger rhizome powder or placebo three times daily. Ginger reduced the severity of pain more than the placebo in both the 3-day and 5-day groups, but it only reduced the duration of pain in the 5-day group. Therefore, taking ginger at least several days before and after menstruation is most beneficial.
