Since GirlU is an all-natural supplement, its active ingredients are all herbs. Specially selected to fight the toughest PMS symptoms, the herbs in GirlU do a variety of awesome things to get you feeling better and back to your day fast. These herbs have a long history of alleviating symptoms, but this is the first time they’ve been put together into one simple, easy-to-swallow pill that acts in as little as 15 minutes. Best of all, you can personalize your dose so you’re getting just as much as you need based on your body and its natural cycles.

Let’s take a look at the herbs in GirlU and how they work for you to curb cravings, minimize bloating, relieve irritability, and improve focus.

  • Griffonia Seed, which comes from the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, contributes the chemical 5-HTP, known to help raise serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin helps regulate mood and behavior, and 5-HTP has been shown to have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, and appetite. Because this form of 5-HTP is coming from a plant base, there’s less chance of contamination.
  • Green tea is more than just a soothing hot drink. For years, its health benefits have been studied and appreciated, particularly when it comes to mental alertness. Green tea has 2%-4% caffeine, which helps with brain function. Researchers think the power of green tea lies in its polyphenols—chemicals with potent antioxidant properties. It’s also been used historically to treat stomach upsets, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches.
  • Chaste tree berry helps with headaches, irritability, and especially breast tenderness. The herb acts on the pituitary gland to increase progesterone production, which helps regulate your menstrual cycle.
  • Red clover contains a variety of nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C. It also has isoflavones, which are similar to the estrogen your body normally produces. When your estrogen levels aren’t balanced, you can experience more PMS symptoms, so red clover helps your body function as if it has the proper amount of estrogen.
  • Saw palmetto has a variety of active ingredients including fatty acids, plant sterols, and flavonoids. It contains sugars that can help reduce inflammation and strengthen the immune system, and it also functions as a mild diuretic.

When you take GirlU, you’re getting all these herbs to act together to provide you with fast, natural relief. Ready to give it a try? Check out GirlU today!

Does PMS Ruin Marriages? We Think Not.

PMS-MarriageA recent paper put out by Michael R. Gillings claims that PMS can ruin marriages. Problem #1?  The author can’t seem to properly distinguish between PMS (premenstrual syndrome) and PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder), which is like confusing a kitten for a lion.

Eighty percent of women just have PMS - which is a bunch of mild, annoying symptoms. Five to eight percent of women have PMDD, which is a serious and sometimes disabling disorder. He claims that PMS was made to drive off the infertile males and leave us to find fertile males - a typical male explanation. Not only does he assume that all couples are heterosexual, but he always assumes that they are all motivated by childbearing decisions as well.

PMS does not ruin marriages. This, again, reinforces the idea that we turn into crazy women every month. Women are taught to be hush-hush about their periods so they don’t make people uncomfortable. The reality is, we are trying to suffer silently and only have outbursts when it becomes too much. Women are very aware of the PMS stigma and do not want any man to attribute our reactions to this because it gives them a reason to dismiss our feelings.

Not to mention that every woman is affected very differently by PMS. I’m pretty sure if a man felt this way every month, he wouldn’t be too happy either!

While we don’t believe that PMS has any affect on your marriage or relationships, we do believe that it can inconveniently interrupt your life every month. Girl Uninterrupted is about PMS relief that is effective, natural, and discreet – and allows you to live your life without interruption. If you feel you’re your monthly flow is interrupting your life, check out how Girl Uninterrupted can help with your PMS relief.

Why Does PMS Cause Water Weight?

Water Weight During Period

UGH. Do you ever get that balloon-like feeling? PMS and other hormonal changes can really affect how your belly feels. Many women get cramps, headaches, back pain, and more during their periods – but your body changes before your period as well. That uncomfortable bloating around the abdomen, hips, and thighs that we disdainfully refer to as “water weight” is a product of an imbalance of magnesium and potassium in the body. This is due to a change in hormones.

While it may seem like a lot, it is common to gain between 1 to 6 pounds before and during your period. This can happen regardless of how healthy you are. Some women will have a noticeable weight gain, while others don’t. Remember not to panic either way - this is totally normal!

Some girls try diuretics to reduce the bloat, but in the long run, diuretics rob you of important minerals that your body needs to function. Here are a few options to reduce this water weight gain:

  1. Avoiding salty foods will reduce the chances of water retention.
  2. Make sure you’re getting enough calcium.
  3. Keep yourself hydrated. Drinking more water doesn’t mean you are going to gain more water weight!
  4. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies.
  5. Cut back on refined sugars.

While these are great tips, we also just recommend a “roll with it” approach. Help your body out with these tips, but don’t feel bad if you occasionally give into that chocolate bar. Whether it’s yoga pants to the library or a flowy dress to the office, wear something loose and comfy so you don’t feel miserable all day. Plus, remember that the mind tends to blow the actual appearance of bloating waaaaaay out of proportion. You still look great, and the bloating will go away as soon as your period comes!
