Natural Remedies

I have a painful menstrual cycle. What can I do?

The phytonutrients in ginger can act as potent inhibitors of prostaglandins, substances that are involved with inflammation. In fact, studies have found that ginger can be just as effective as ibuprofen, acetaminophen and caffeine for pain related to menstruation.

Of course, ginger doesn’t carry the same side effects as medications do. It can even support your digestion.

Ginger seems to be an even more effective remedy for menstrual cramps if you have it at the beginning of your period.
