Cinnamon 

Studies show that cinnamon and its associated antioxidants have potent anti-inflammatory properties, which may help with pain that results from tissue inflammation. 

Vitamin B6 

Studies have shown that taking 50 mg of vitamin B6 daily improved PMS symptoms of depression, irritability and tiredness by 69%. B6 is thought to help with emotional symptoms related to PMS due to its role in creating neurotransmitters that regulate mood. 

Cannabidiol (CBD) What it is and how it can help?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a natural medicine going back thousands  of years. In the modern era, the therapeutic properties of CBD are being rigorously tested by scientists and doctors around the world. More than a simple health fad, increasing evidence suggests CBD and other cannabinoids may hold significant therapeutic value.  A safe and non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids, which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Many people want the purported health benefits of cannabis without the high. As CBD is non-toxic, non-psychogenic, safe and easy to administer as an oil, it is an appealing
option for many interested in the health and wellness market. 

How Does It Work? CBD is legal in the UK and is not classed as a controlled substance

CBD interacts with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main way’s cannabinoids impact us is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” – named because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These endocannabinoids are part of a regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system has significantly advanced our understanding of health and disease. It has major implications for nearly every area of medical science and helps to explain how and why CBD is such a versatile compound. The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes including our mood, energy level, our intestinal health, immune system health, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, pain regulation, stress, hunger, and more. World-class science investigation has shown that the endocannabinoid system is dysregulated in nearly all pathological conditions. It therefore stands to reason that “modulating endocannabinoid system activity may have therapeutic potential in almost all diseases affecting humans,” as scientists with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), suggested in a 2014 publication.
