About The Herbs In Perfect Period
The Five Herbs in the Perfect Period.® Formula
Catnip (Nepeta cataria):
Its calming qualities promote relaxation, which may boost mood and reduce anxiety, restlessness, and nervousness. Several Native American tribes used Catnip to support immune function and for relaxing muscle spasms and cramps.
Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex agnus-castus):
Chaste Tree Berry has been used to treat menstrual cycle problems, premenstrual syndrome, and menopause. Chaste tree berries may help stimulate progesterone, a female hormone that increases about 2 weeks before menstruation.
Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis):
Dong Quai is used to help balance hormones. It’s a mainstay of Eastern herbal medicine, and Dong Quai (specifically, the root) is rich in compounds with anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulating effects.
Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca):
Motherwort is used to regulate menstruation, to bring on delayed periods, and can reduce smooth muscle cramping - particularly menstrual cramps.
Common Ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia):
Ragweed is said to have many medicinal benefits, including use as a homeopathic remedy to reduce symptoms of ragweed allergy.
Some traditional medicinal uses of Common Ragweed:
It's been used for menstrual issues (by Native American women), as an astringent (to reduce moisture, or to stop bleeding from a cut, etc.), as an antiseptic (antibacterial), and as a febrifuge (or fever reducer). It has also been used as a liver cleanse.
*A note about Ragweed:
Some may be concerned when they see Common Ragweed as an ingredient. We want you to know that this plant is harvested well before pollination, to avoid any potential reaction to the pollen.
Why Choose to use Herbs?
Medicinal plants, also called medicinal herbs, have been used to treat health complaints for thousands of years across many cultures and civilizations, and their use continues to this day.
There are many good reasons for using herbs, including:
- They are natural, rather than synthetic/chemical, and as such usually carry far fewer (if any) of the side effects commonly listed among pharmaceuticals.
- An herb (as a liquid extract - a tincture) contains needed compounds of the whole plant, and is more effective than in pill or capsule form.
- Herbal Tinctures (liquid extracts) allow for more flexibility in the volume used, as a person can more easily adjust the amount used according to their own body’s response.
We have observed over the years that this specific, original blend of herbs, as we have formulated, offers unique support for balancing a woman’s hormones.
