The premenstrual syndrome or PMS is the combination of physical and/or emotional complaints that occur in the period just before the menstruation or during the second half of the menstrual cycle in women.
Women with PMS suffer from physical symptoms such as sensitive breasts, bloating, headache, lower back pain and nausea. Possible emotional symptoms are mood swings, a gloomy feeling, depression, irritability and anxiety. The cause of PMS is still unclear, but an increased sensitivity to normal hormonal fluctuations is likely to play a role.
There is no medication for the treatment of premenstrual syndrome. Exercise and a healthy diet can alleviate symptoms for most women. At Optiphar you can find dietary supplements that can also help to reduce the symptoms of PMS. These supplements often contain natural ingredients such as vitamin B6, evening primrose oil, calcium, St. John's wort or ginkgo biloba. High-quality brands that we offer include Tilman Pre-ms and Bioradix Fytoleum Femme Pro.
