Moon Time Tea includes 5 ingredients that help with menstrual pain, according to science :
Yarrow: Rich in flavonoids and azulene, yarrow is a plant with antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties. By blocking the production of estrogen, yarrow relieves menstrual pain and stomach aches.
Chamomile: One of the benefits of this flower is that it greatly contributes to reducing digestive disorders. This is particularly useful during the menstrual period. Indeed, many people are confronted with digestive disorders the days preceding their period or during the menstrual flow.
In addition to these benefits that chamomile provides, it is also recommended for cramps, whether of digestive or uterine origin.
Raspberry leaf: Raspberry leaves are essential to fight against menstrual cramps and stomach aches. They are packed with fragarine and flavonoids. These are known to reduce the contractions of the muscles of the uterus.
Lemon balm: lemon balm is particularly effective in combating anxiety and stress. It soothes changing moods, irritability, or anxiety. Very useful when you know that many people are confronted with these symptoms as they approach menstruation. It is a plant that has been used since ancient times. It is also antispasmodic, which reduces uterine contractions and menstrual pain.
Ginger root: Because it has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, it may help with both pain and bloating. A study showed that ginger powder was as effective as anti-inflammatory medication (mefenamic acid and ibuprofen) in relieving symptoms of dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain).
