Beverages Fit to Fight Menstrual Cramps

17 November 2020

It’s your period week and if that means you’re feeling less like this 🥳 and more like this 🤢 then you’ll want to dive into this list of beverages that are known for relieving menstrual cramps:

💧 We know, you’ve heard this for, BUT you really should be drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. If water bores you, add mint, cucumber, or a lemon wedge to make it more enjoyable.

🌼  Chamomile tea is best known for its relaxing qualities, but it’s also full of anti-inflammatory substances that inhibit prostaglandinsthese chemicals constrict the blood vessels in the uterus and make the muscle layer contract (aka cramps).

☕ Ginger tea is a great go-to since ginger has a wide range of benefits, including relieving nausea, improving digestion, reducing inflammation, and more. 

🍊Fortified orange juice is a great source of calcium, which is a mineral that gets a lot of attention for bone health, but is also important for proper functioning of your heart, muscles, and nervous system. 

🥛 Milk (soy, almond, or full fat cow’s milk) are all sources of Vitamin D, which fights off those prostaglandins (aka cramp creators) that we mentioned earlier.
