Pure Encapsulation Zinc 30

🌸According to world-famous, period expert Lara Briden,  Zinc 30 mg at days leading 10 days before your period should reduce menstrual cramps and pain. I can say it works! From her blog:

👉 Reduces inflammation and improves period pain. Zinc has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it relieves period pain. It’s also a key part of the immune-modulating protocol for endometriosis.

👉 It regulates the menstrual cycle. Zinc nourishes ovarian follicles (eggs) and so promotes ovulation.

👉  Tip: Allow three months for it to work because of the “100 days to ovulation” I discuss in Period Repair Manual. 

Blocks excess androgens (testosterone). Zinc is one of several natural androgen blockers that can improve androgen symptoms such as acne and hirsutism (facial hair).

👉  Tip: Zinc will never push testosterone below normal levels.

Clears acne by blocking androgens, killing bacteria, and reducing keratin production.

👉Maintains collagen. Zinc maintains the integrity of collagen in connective tissue and hair, and it’s particularly good for the hair loss associated with thyroid disease.

👉Supports thyroid. Together with iodine and selenium, zinc is essential for the synthesis and activation of the thyroid hormone.  Zinc promotes the thyroid hormone, which, in turn, promotes the better absorption of zinc.

👉Dials down cortisol and the stress response. Zinc supports the hippocampus, which is the part of the brain that dials down the stress response.

👉Zinc deficiency symptoms include:

hair lossdermatitis, impaired immune function, white spots on the fingernails.

🌸 This Zinc Picolinate (30 mg.)  is highly Absorbable Hypoallergenic Great also for Supplement for Immune Support. It is recommended also if you deal with eczema. 

🌸 Pure Encapsulations products are free from wheat, gluten, egg, peanuts, magnesium stearate, hydrogenated fat, artificial sweeteners and colors, and other unnecessary excipients.

Seeking Health HistaminX 

🌷HistaminX by Seeking Health provides a combination of supportive herbal and plant-derived compounds that may work together to support seasonal comfort and a healthy inflammatory response. 

Bioflavonoids quercetin, rutin, and luteolin may play a role in modulating the body’s histamine response. Made with Natural Nettle, Quercetin, Rutin, Bromelain Blend with Broccoli Seed Extract.

Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce cramps, prevents UTIs, and is good for overall hormone health. quercetin helps modulate inflammation and regulate blood sugar, two factors that are essential for balanced hormones and a healthy cycle.

I recommend taking quercetin during the menstrual phase to support healthy estrogen levels and keep inflammation levels low. 

Nettles replenish magnesium in the body which helps reduce PMS, and they are a good source of iron, which can help build up the blood during and after menstruation. 

  • The leaves of stinging nettles support respiratory health, a healthy urinary tract, healthy mucus membranes, and overall well-being.*

  • Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme found in pineapple, helps support a normal inflammatory response, and the body’s healing processes and is sometimes used as a digestive enzyme.

  • Glucoraphanin, a compound found in plants in the genus Brassica (e.g. broccoli and cauliflower), supports healthy detoxification processes, a healthy immune system, and provides mitochondrial support.* 

INGREDIENTS: Stinging Nettle Extract (Urtica dioica)(leaves)(1% silica) 200 mg, Luteolin:Rutin Cocrystal (45% luteolin)(45% rutin) 200 mg, Quercetin (as quercetin dihydrate from Sophora japonica)(bud) 100 mg, Bromelain (2400 GDU/g)(from Ananas comosus)(fruit) 100 mg, Glucoraphanin (from broccoli extract)(Brassica oleracea italica)(seed) 25 mg, Dihydroquercetin (from larch tree extract)(Larix dahurica)(Larix gmelinii)(Larix sibirica ledeb)(Larix cajanderi)(saw logs) 20 mg.

Pure Encapsulations Megnesium Glycinate 

🌷 I have been using this brand for a long time and I can say that I approved of it! It is the cleanest and the Glycicnate form is the most effective around.  It is a brand recommended by Naturopath doctors.

🌷 Highly bioavailable magnesium chelate for sensitive individuals. Magnesium (glycinate) is a highly bioavailable magnesium chelate, which supports the metabolism and utilization of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats for energy. Magnesium (glycinate) helps activate enzymes for physiological functions including cardiac health. Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body.

🌷 In a 15-year study involving almost 5,000 young adults, higher intakes of magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose utilization. Another large cross-sectional study found that magnesium intake was positively associated with bone mineral density in certain subgroups. This vital mineral also helps utilize some vitamins, including vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Magnesium (glycinate) is less likely to cause loose stools than other forms of magnesium.

🌷 Their magnesium Glycinate is amazing as well. Take it every night before sleep.  No fillers and unnecessary additives. Take a look. 

🌷 For acid reflux or GERD, this a Better alternative to Magnesium Citrate since it does contain citric acid.  Gret for period issues and cramps and for workouts.🌷
