FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

Calcium supplementation has been found to be effective in the reduction of psychological symptoms of premenstrual symptoms, including sadness, mood swings, and anxiety.

Fast Fact

Magnesium helps to ease the symptoms of PMS by reducing cramps and relaxing the uterus.

Fast Fact

Does myo-inositol help with PMS? Myo-inositol is a naturally occurring, nutrient-like substance that has been studied in a variety of mood and behavioural disorders. A recent study in women with pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) found that supplementation with 2g myo-inositol daily was able to significantly reduce symptoms.

Fast Fact

Interestingly, levels of zinc are noticeably lower in women exhibiting PMS symptoms than those who don’t. Studies have shown that supplementing zinc in the latter 2 weeks of your menstrual cycle could be enormously beneficial for PMS.

Fast Fact

Magnesium is essential for the brain’s dopaminergic synthesis. Dopamine imbalance can affect mood and can lead to overwhelming anxiety (Li 2001). Previous studies have reported decreased circulating magnesium concentrations during the luteal phase among women with PMS, suggesting that magnesium deficiency may be a key factor in the aetiology of PMS (Posaci 1994; Rosenstein 1994).

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects millions of women around the world and is known as the most important disorder in women. It has been estimated that 80-90% of women experience the symptoms of PMS at reproductive age.

INGREDIENTS

Vitamin B6

Pyridoxine HCL

Bioavalablity

Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) is important for normal brain development and for keeping the nervous system and immune system healthy.

Magnesium with Vitamin B6 is a complementary formula that plays a significant role in supporting the maintenance of good health.* Magnesium is a critical mineral needed for hundreds of essential jobs inside your body. Vitamin B6 supports nervous system health and energy metabolism.

Feminine

Zinc

Zinc Glycinate

Cortisol Support

Zinc plays a significant role with respect to the stress response. Prolonged stress can deplete zinc levels. Proper maintenance of zinc status can help to stabilize serum cortisol levels over time, and zinc intake has been shown to temporarily inhibit cortisol secretions. Zinc is also an essential cofactor for serotonin synthesis which positively influences mood.

Feminine

Myo -Inositol

Myo -Inositol

Neuroprotection

Myo-Inositol is a metabolite present in high levels in the brain. It is important for brain cell function given its involvement in the synthesis of cell membrane phospholipids which are protective barriers for brain cells. Myo-Inositol is also an important signaling molecule which allows neurotransmitters to function. Supplementation with Myo-Inositol may support mood during stressful situations.

Feminine

GABA

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid

Stress Modulator

GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system. When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect. This can help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear.

Feminine

B-Vitamins

B-Vitamin Complex

Stress Resilience

Vitamin B6  has been found to relieve a broad range of PMS symtoms including moodiness, irritability, bloating and anxiety. 

B12, like other B vitamins, is needed to make red blood cells. This is critical for replenishing blood during your period, especially if you have heavier flow.

Feminine

Magnesium

Magnesium Chelate

Cramp Support

Magnesium helps to ease the symptoms of PMS by reducing cramps and relaxing the uterus.  According to a recent literature review, magnesium is an evidence-based treatment for PMS. Some researchers propose that it may work by calming the nervous system and by “normalizing the actions of different hormones (mainly progesterone) on the central nervous system”.  

Feminine

Calcium

Calcium Chelate

Serotonin Support

Calcium supplementation has been found to be effective in the reduction of psychological symptoms of premenstrual symptoms, including sadness, mood swings and anxiety.

 

Studies suggest that calcium deficiency during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle can exacerbate PMS symptoms by causing depression, hallucination, and restlessness. Moreover, women who have diets rich in vitamin D and calcium are at a lower risk of developing PMS compared to other women.

 

In a recent study, researchers found that women with PMS who took a 500 milligram (mg) calcium supplement twice a day for three months had significantly reduced levels of fatigue, appetite changes, and depression than women who took a placebo.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

PMS or premenstrual syndrome is a group of symptoms that affects up to 75% of girls and women who have regular menstrual cycles. The telltale symptoms are both physical including bloating, weight gain, breast pain, joint or muscle pain, sleep disturbances and changes in appetite as well as some psychological side effects like anger, irritability, confusion, loss of control, and difficulty in concentrating (1,2). In short, a lot of unpleasant symptoms for a teen who already has so much to deal with physically and emotionally.

 

The reason why some women get PMS symptoms, while others don’t isn’t currently known and although there are so many women who struggle with these symptoms every month, the research behind trying to figure out how to solve these problems is lacking (1).

 

At Bioteen, we decided to dig into the research that is available to create a supplement that can support your teen during this time and provide some much needed relief and this is how we created Bioteen’s Premenstra.

 

Let’s have a look at how Premenstra™ works:

 

Hormonal regulation

As the menstrual cycle is governed by hormones and an exaggerated hormonal response may be implicated in more severe PMS symptoms, it makes sense to do our best to regulate them. One of the most profound effects that hormones can have is on your teen’s emotions. Luckily there are a few nutrients that have been shown to have a calming and uplifting effect, including magnesium, calcium and myo-inositol.

 

Starting with magnesium, while we know that it is an essential cofactor for more than 300 biological processes, it has also been found to normalize the action that certain hormones, like progesterone, have on the central nervous system and in doing this helps to calm it down (3).

 

Calcium on the other hand, is involved in the production of the neurotransmitter’s serotonin (your feel good neurotransmitter) and dopamine (your reward seeking neurotransmitter) both of which are needed for mood regulation. Some research suggests that magnesium and calcium levels are often lower in women who suffer from PMS and hypothesize that correcting these deficiencies will have a knock-on effect on mood (4). In fact, other research shows that calcium supplementation is associated with up to almost a 50% reduction in PMS symptom score, especially related to mood swings, depression, tension, anxiety, anger and crying spells (5). So, it seems like calcium isn’t just needed for strong bones!

 

Muscle relaxation

Painful cramping is next up on the list of horrible symptoms, with some women experiencing such extreme pain that they find it difficult to continue with daily tasks. These painful cramps may happen because when the muscular outer layer of the uterus experiences hyper contractility and because of the constriction of certain blood vessels. Calcium supplementation has been shown to help with this and may reduce neuromuscular irritability and vascular reactivity (4). In addition to this, magnesium also helps to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus meaning that there is potentially less cramping and pain (3).

Anti-inflammatory

After ovulation there is a buildup of omega-6 fatty acids in the cell membranes. Before the period begins, progesterone levels drop and the omega 6 fatty acids are released. This release triggers a cascade of inflammatory molecules in the uterus which triggers an inflammatory response which leads to cramping as well as other systemic symptoms like period related bloating, headaches, depressed mood, irritability and reduced levels of alertness (3, 6, 7).

 

To help combat this inflammation we have included magnesium and vitamin B6. Magnesium helps to reduce the amount of these inflammatory molecules released (specifically one called prostaglandins) and in doing this it helps to manage cramps and pain (3) and vitamin B6 acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing the inflammatory molecules that are released. Interestingly, vitamin B6 has been shown to specifically target psychological symptoms caused by inflammation (alone and as part of a multivitamin complex) (6, 7). In addition to all this, vitamin B6 has also been shown to enhance the efficacy of both magnesium (8) and calcium (4), making it an incredibly versatile and helpful vitamin.

 

The bottom line

All in all, if your teen suffers from PMS symptoms there are ways that you can help. By providing sufficient doses of these effective nutrients Bioteen’s Premenstra helps to naturally target more than one pathway that results in PMS symptoms. When PMS symptoms are under control, your teen will feel better and potentially have a more positive outlook on life. This may lead to a knock-on effect on their relationships, school work and even sports performance.
