Orlando, FL — July 1, 2015 — There are women who go through their period without any trouble at all. However, there are also those who experience unbearable pain from menstrual cramps. While there are pain relief drugs available, the use of these medications is not encouraged due to the side effects they cause. Nowadays, women who suffer from dysmenorrhea are turning to natural alternatives.
Turmeric has become a popular natural remedy for menstrual cramps. To suffer from dysmenorrhea is a form of torture, mainly because it usually causes so much pain that women become incapacitated and unable to function or continue their routines.
“Many people use turmeric powder when preparing dishes or beverages, while others just simply take advantage of curcumin supplements,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Turmeric is not just popularized by its blood thinning properties, but also its anti-inflammatory substances. There are certain ways that it can potentially help women go through their period without suffering from too much pain.
During menstruation, there is usually an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, both of which are female hormones. This imbalance often leads to the buildup and shedding of the uterine lining, which results in excessive bleeding. Menstrual cramps often take place, and when they do, sufferers turn to pain relief drugs.
According to experts, turmeric can potentially work in the same way as pain relief drugs, and the advantage is that it does not cause side effects. This ancient, medicinal spice is believed to inhibit prostaglandin synthesis. Prostaglandins contribute to pain and inflammation by stimulating uterine contractions. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can do a lot of healing effects on the menstrual cycle.
The increase in the popularity of natural alternatives such as turmeric is influenced by the need for many people to achieve relief from pain and inflammation without suffering from side effects. Many of the pain relievers available nowadays are associated with side effects that can jeopardize long-term health.
Many individuals with arthritis who often suffer from pain and inflammation are turning to natural alternatives such as turmeric, instead of using pain relievers. They have reported some significant improvements not just in their pain, but also their mobility.
Today, many women are drinking turmeric tea, but there are also those who use curcumin supplements. Curcumin is turmeric’s key ingredient, and is believed to offer a variety of health benefits.
Curcumin supplements that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine are very popular nowadays. Curcumin has low bioavailability, and when it is combined with BioPerine, there is an increase in its absorption inside the body (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
