VIT B1 & MAGNESIUM MAY BOTH HELP REDUCE THE PAIN OF DYSMENORRHEA

Dysmenorrhoea is a very common complaint that refers to painful menstrual cramps in the uterus. When the pain is associated with a recognised condition such as endometriosis, it is called secondary dysmenorrhoea. Primary dysmenorrhoea refers to pain of an unknown cause. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or the contraceptive pill have been used but more women are looking for non-drug therapies, including herbal and dietary treatments. The review of trials found some evidence that Vitamin B1 and magnesium help reduce pain but more research is needed. —Cochrane Jan 2009¬†
