When it’s that time of month, and you’re feeling down, you want fast relief guaranteed to get you back to your life ASAP.   GirlU goes above and beyond to give you that relief. If you’re wondering what makes us different from the rest, you’ll want to take a gander at these reasons we take pride in what we offer:

  • Simple, stylish, discrete packaging. GirlU comes in a cute, easy-to-open compact that you can carry with you wherever you go and access right away—not like those bulky bottles the other gals use.
  • Convenient quantities. A one-month supply means eight tablets—great for giving GirlU a try without having to commit to 30-180 pills all at once, like many other PMS medications.
  • Choose your dosage. You know your body better than anyone else, and GirlU lets you take only what you need to feel better fast. GirlU goes to work within 15 minutes and lasts up to 12 hours. You can take it when you need it, as long as you need it. Depending on your unique needs, that could mean just 4-8 tablets per full menstrual cycle. Our competitors often want you to take a pill every 4 hours, sometimes for an entire month. What a hassle!
  • All-natural ingredients. The proprietary blend of Griffonia Seed Extract, Green Tea Extract, Red Clover, Chaste Tree Berry, and Saw Palmetto go straight to work on your serotonin receptors, enhancing mood and promoting relaxation without drowsiness.
  • Made in the USA. GirlU is made in a lab with over 40 years of experience crafting the best nutritional supplements, with GMP certifications from both NSF International and NPA. Bonus: GirlU is organic, too!

Our goal is to make you feel better naturally and quickly, so you can get back to your amazing life. Try GirlU today and enjoy the natural difference!

Girl Uninterrupted Launches New Look

Girl Uninterrupted's new look

Girl Uninterrupted is now available from Amazon.

On September 17, Girl Uninterrupted officially debuted its new look, along with its Amazon.com page, where it’s available for purchase.

Produced by Magpie, LLC, a wellness company founded by women for women, Girl Uninterrupted is an all-natural supplement designed to work quickly to relieve symptoms associated with menstruation, like cramps, bloating, and irritability. It contains five herbal ingredients:

  • Griffonia seed extract, a natural source of 5-HTP, an amino acid that affects serotonin receptors in the brain and allows for a sense of relaxation without fatigue;
  • Green tea extract, which contains antioxidants and relieves bloating by working as a light diuretic;
  • A blend of red clover, chaste tree berry, and saw palmetto, each of which support estrogen in the body and help balance female hormones.

A lifelong health enthusiast with a Plant-Based Nutrition Certification from Cornell, Magpie, LLC founder Mayling Kajiya wanted to create a supplement to deal with the symptoms of PMS without using acetaminophen and caffeine.

“For a syndrome that affects almost every woman at some point in her life, it’s about time for a product that doesn’t just numb the discomfort of PMS with the same medicine one would take to get rid of a headache or sore throat, but rather, one that provides relief in a safe, effective way by using all-natural ingredients,” said Kajiya.

Girl Uninterrupted is for women who can’t afford to have their lives interrupted by PMS symptoms every month.

Available on Amazon.com, Girl Uninterrupted is sold in a 1-month supply package of eight tablets for $14.99 and a 3-month supply of 24 tablets for $24.99.

What to Wear on Your Period

Clothing examples for what to wear on your period

Try these styles when you want to look office-ready but aren't feeling up to the usual wardrobe.

When That Time of the Month hits, there are definitely mornings when you just want to stay in bed and not have to worry about what to wear. Unfortunately, you probably still have to go to work or school—even if you’re feeling bloated and cranky and nothing seems to fit right. Has all hope of decent office attire run screaming out the door?

No way! There are plenty of ways to be both comfortable and chic enough for the daily grind—even when you’re not feeling your best. Here are a few fashion ideas for days when you want to look good but also give yourself an extra bit of TLC:

  • Dressy shorts. If your workplace allows it, a nice pair of shorts made of comfortable material—and an elastic waistband!—can be just the ticket. Darker colors at about knee-length will make you feel both sleek and comfortable.
  • Cashmere sweaters. Any shirt made of soft, flowing material that’s still dressy enough for work or school will keep you soothed and also looking great. If you’re worried about bloating around your belly, try a top with drapes or ruffles.
  • Shift dress. The style is simple and clean, and the lack of waist means no definition, particularly where you least want it!
  • Maxi skirt. Flowy and loose, these skirts come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all conveniently covering your legs while still allowing a full range of movement.
  • Oversized cardigan. If you can’t stay in bed, at least take your blanket with you! Larger cardigans feel comfy and bathrobe-like while still looking professional.
  • Jeggings. If you’re going for the clean-cut jeans look but your usual denim just isn’t happening, try jeggings—the classic look of jeans, but with the feel of stretch pants. Just make sure you don’t get them too tight!
  • Tunic top. From a t-shirt style to more of a sweater, a tunic top generally has a round, flattering neckline and little to no collar, making it a stylish and comfortable option.
  • Comfortable shoes. Leave the six-inch heels for another time! When you’re suffering from cramps and other period-related effects, you definitely don’t want aching, too! Instead of making your feet suffer, too, pamper them with flats or dressy clogs.

Just because you’re dealing with your period doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel great, even when you’re out in public! Aim for looser fits in comfortable styles to ensure your office attire won’t suffer—and you won’t, either.

Guilt-Free Smoothie for PMS

Did you ever think your blender could help alleviate PMS discomfort?   There is some science behind these ingredients, but this GirlU smoothie is not only enjoyable but also incredibly healthy.  PMS is a challenge, but at GirlU we like to find natural and plant based solutions!  Here are a few of the ingredients and the reason why they are important for lessening PMS symptoms.

Main Ingredients:

  • Bananas are sweet and creamy when blended and they have a high potassium content that can help reverse the water retention often associated with PMS.
  • Cocoa powder is rich in anti-oxidants, but we put it in the smoothie as a healthy alternative for sweet and chocolaty cravings.
  • Maca powder is rich with vitamin C, D and E and is used for making those cramps, body pain and mood swings less painful and annoying.  Maca Root is a “superfood” that most people have not discovered yet, but it definitely enhances your energy level so it’s best consumed early in the day.

Here’s a #GirlUTip, for frosty, refreshing results, use frozen bananas. The easiest thing to do is to peel a banana, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer so it is ready to go.  The last thing you want to do is wrestle the peel off when you are already in a bad mood!

Throw all of your ingredients in the blender and then sit back, drink up and enjoy!

International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, the day to celebrate women’s accomplishments, and what better way than to celebrate how Girl UNinterrupted came to be!

Mayling Kajiya began Girl UNinterrupted because her eldest sister constantly called to complain about her PMS and she wanted very much to help her sister. With a background in nutrition, fitness and movement, Mayling studied the ways amino acids worked and found an all-natural formula that worked! Using an essential amino acid - l-trytophan, Mayling was able to create a natural pain relief pill.

Girl UNinterrupted is more than just the pill itself. We are a company for women to SHARE their knowledge and learn from each other. We are here to connect women that are facing common challenges. We are here to motivate each other and to build a community.

With that said about our accomplishments we’d like to take this moment to challenge you!

This week’s assignment:

Take time to reflect your accomplishments this year and thank the strong women around you.
