DYSMENORRHEA is a severe, painful cramps during menstruation associated with nausea/vomiting, urinary frequency and strong or prolonged contractions of the muscular wall of the uterus.
Studies revealed that women with dysmenorrhea produce and excrete more prostaglandins than those who don’t have dysmenorrhea. This abnormal pain is related to ovulation, the reason why oral contraceptives relieve the symptoms.
Surprisingly, women taking tea made from the bark and wood of Philippine Narra tree (Pterocarpus indicus Willd) for their diabetes are also afforded relief from the painful hypogastric cramps or dysmenorrhea. The flavonoids or polyphenolics present in Narra tea is the reason for the relief of pain during the menstrual period.
Since 2002, many dysmenorrhea sufferers have already been helped by Narra tea. The beneficial health effects can be felt in your next monthly period such as the disappearance of the discomfort and pain.
