Genestra Femagen PMS Capsules
Vegan-friendly multi-mineral formula
• For relief of symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome
Femagen PMS Capsules contain a blend of vitamins, minerals and herbs that help relieve symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Approximately 30-80% of women experience mild to moderate PMS symptoms each month.1 PMS symptoms may result from elevated levels of estrogen or decreased levels of vitamins and minerals.1 Chasteberry improves hormonal balance by increasing the release of luteinizing hormone, which stimulates progesterone release and ultimately decreases estrogen secretion.1 In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 67 women with PMS, daily supplementation with chasteberry extract for three months significantly improved water retention and psychological symptoms associated with PMS, including irritability, bloating, and breast tenderness.2 Beta-carotene is a provitamin A carotenoid pigment naturally found in plants.3 B vitamins help mediate hundreds of enzymatic reactions, including the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.4 Niacin and thiamine help to provide substrates for energy production in the Krebs cycle, while vitamin B12 and folate are involved in the formation of red blood cells through their role in DNA synthesis.4
