    Helping to Relieve Menstrual Cramps

    The ingredients in PM X have been specifically chosen to help reduce specific pain-inducing compounds, including the COX-2 enzyme, that are created during the menstrual cycle leading to painful cramps. Using a multi-ingredient approach for multi-symptom relief, PM X works to reduce PMS symptoms that can seriously hamper your daily activities. With trusted botanicals like Hops (Perluxan™) to reduce pain, Black Haw to help relax uterine muscles, and Chaste Berry to balance hormones, you will find relief when you need it.

    The synergistic action of the patented ingredient, botanicals, and vitamins lets your body better manage and deal with the monthly changes that occur, helping the body to relax, be less irritable, help balance moods and get the pain relief you need.

    PMS doesn’t stand for Please Make it Stop…

    PMS has been the target of jokes for centuries, but for 75 percent of women, the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome are no joke; they threaten relationships, work life, and well-being.

    You may think that these symptoms are an inevitable part of your feminine cycle. But there are ways to ease the arrival of your “monthly friend” so that you aren’t dreading her visit next month. Whether you experience abdominal pain and bloating, headaches and nausea, or mood swings and irritability, you can reduce them naturally, without prescriptions or pain-relieving NSAIDs.

    PM X includes six essential botanically-derived ingredients:

    1. Hops extract (Perluxan™) is a powerful pain reducer that acts quickly (often offering relief within two hours) without the side effects of drug-based menstrual pain relievers.
    2. Black Haw relieves menstrual cramps because it contains a chemical that relaxes the uterus. It is also an effective diuretic to reduce bloating. 
    3. Chaste Berry plays a role in treating menstrual-related irritability and bloating by balancing hormones; in Europe, it is recommended more than any other herb for PMS.
    4. Turmeric has several potent compounds that reduce symptoms including pain, cramps, moodiness and anxiety.
    5. Vitamin B1 may prevent and ease PMS symptoms of moodiness.
    6. Vitamin B6 has been shown to help regulate periods, reduce bloating, and curb cravings.

    Hops: Commonly known as a beer making ingredient, Hops also has a medicinal extract that is effective to reduce pain due to its alpha acids. Research shows that Hops works with the body’s pathways responsible for inflammation, affecting “markers” associated with pain including prostaglandin E2, COX--2, and interlukein-1. Hops extract is also an antioxidant, meaning it fights free radicals that cause premature aging. Enerex uses the patented Perluxan™ for its Hops Extract that contains 30% humulone and strobiles, its active ingredients.

    Black Haw (Viburnum prunifolium): The Black Haw shrub’s bark has been used to treat feminine reproductive issues for over a century. Natural chemicals including Coumarins, Salicin and l-Methyl-2 are thought to be the reason that it is effective as an anti-spasmodic, tension-reducing sedative, uterus relaxant, and diuretic. (It’s also used for false labour pains and uterine spasms after childbirth.)

    Chaste Berry (Vitex agnus-castus): Although it contains no hormones, this herb stimulates luteinizing hormone which, in turn, signals the ovaries to make more progesterone. PMS symptoms like irritability, depression and bloating are partially caused by insufficient progesterone produced in the weeks prior to menstruation. Chaste Berry (and its active ingredient, agnuside) helps normalize the ratio of progesterone to estrogen, providing relief.

    Turmeric: In its whole form, the spice Turmeric helps to maintain healthy estrogen levels. Its therapeutic chemicals also work individually to relieve symptoms: curcumin reduces pain, and effects neurotransmitters to enhance mood and reduce anxiety; eugenol is a pain-relieving anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant; caffeic and cinnamic acids reduce cramping.

    Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCl): Studies have found a lower risk of PMS symptoms in women with high intakes of B vitamins because they help to make the brain neurotransmitters involved in relieving PMS symptoms. (Am J Clin Nutrition, 2011; 93(5): 1080–1086.) B1, thiamine, helps to convert glucose to energy, and can affect energy levels and mood during PMS. B6, pyridoxine, aids in regulating irregular blood flow; and it may also reduce fluid retention, irritability, breast pain, and sugar cravings.

    Remember that menstruation is not a disorder or “design flaw.” Dietary and lifestyle changes, relaxation techniques, detox therapies, and natural supplements can work wonders for its symptoms.
