You don’t have to suffer month after month. Try our simple hacks that work both for quick relief and also to help you get on top of your cycle in the long-term. 🤗
- Yoga poses can nourish the body and calm the mind. Try a supine twist to relieve cramps: lie on your back, arms outstretched, bend knees towards your chest then let them fall gently to one side. Hold for a few breaths, then repeat on the other side.
- True Cinnamon (like ours) has been shown to relieve menstrual cramps and heavy periods! 👏 This is different from Cassia - regularly sold as "cinnamon" in shops - which is cheaper and doesn't have the same effects. Have 1 serving morning and evening in the days running up to and during your period or try ½ serving every 8 hours to keep cramps at bay.
- Turmeric contains an active compound called curcumin that has been found to reduce the negative symptoms of menstrual cycles including mood swings and cramps. Whisk 1-2tsp into a cup of warm almond milk and a dash of maple syrup for relief.
- Maca nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to help normalise hormone levels and bring your menstrual cycle into balance over time🙏 After 1-2 cycles, you should start to notice the difference, however some of our Bursters have had much quicker results. #Tip double the serving size for the 2nd half of your cycle, or throughout your cycle if you need stronger effects!
- Heat patches are super convenient and can be worn discreetly under your clothes. Winner! The warmth relaxes the muscle cramping and helps blood flow around the area to relieve the pain.
- Lavender essential oil has been found in studies to reduce menstrual pain when used for self-massage, and in one study it worked within just 30mins. Simply add a few drops to your massage oil.
- Acupressure works to clear blockages in the Qi or energetic system of Chinese medicine that flows through the body. Try this simple technique: gently squeeze the area between your thumb and forefinger on one hand for 2-3 mins and repeat on the other side.
