85-90% of all women experience some premenstrual symptoms.
PMS is a sign that the downward flow of the body's vital energy, known as Qi, is compromised. When the descending flow of the Qi has been disrupted at the onset of menses, it's not uncommon to experience pain including head pain or tightening of the jaw. PMS in Traditional Chinese herbalism is called "liver Qi stagnation" which is also a causal issue with moodiness and heightened emotions.
After a woman's menstrual cycle, many women feel depleted due to the loss of blood. The body must restore and rebuild the uterine lining and the follicles that are shed during menses. It is no wonder women who do not nourish their body with nutrient rich foods and herbs experience a lack of energy or low libido, during and after their menstrual cycle.
Before The Flow™ soothes and supports a woman's body before her menstrual cycle. It is an added support to help guard against stagnant liver qi. When the energetic system of the liver is smooth and not stagnant, a woman is far less likely to feel stressed out, impatient, irritable, angry or have the tendency to lash out emotionally at the world. In traditional Chinese herbalism Before The Flow™ tonifies the blood and regulates the menses. When used regularly, this supreme herbal supplement reduces stress and frustration and heightens a woman's sense of well-being.*
