Fem Ease™ is a high-quality supplement that contains powerful nutrients and botanical ingredients that have proven benefits for supporting physical and mental well-being during the menstrual cycle. This premium formula helps enhance muscle comfort when taken several days before and during menstruation.
The ingredients in Fem Ease™ help relieve the discomfort, aches, and cramping of dysmenorrhea. L-carnitine helps reduce muscle cramping and supports muscle recovery. Ginger reduces muscle aches and cramping related to menstruation and has even been shown to be as effective as some drugs that target inflammation.
Curcumin has been shown to provide support for body aches, discomfort, and the body’s inflammatory response related to menstruation, while magnesium helps to relax the muscles. Magnesium and California poppy provide mood support and promote relaxation, which is important since moodiness and higher stress levels have been linked to greater menstrual pain.
Fem Ease™ can also be used by both men and women to relax muscles and relieve general muscle pain, for example, after a workout. Fem Ease™ may be used in combination with Fem Calm to ease the mental-emotional fluctuations that may occur around the menstrual cycle.
Fem Ease™ provides magnesium, L-carnitine, and herbal extracts that may help ease symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle and may help relieve occasional muscle discomfort and tightness.*
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Made without peanuts, dairy, eggs or any animal by-product.
For mild menstrual discomfort, take 3 capsules two to three times daily, 2 days prior to menstruation until 3 days afterward. To help relieve other symptoms, take 3 capsules one to three times daily. Take with food and/or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
Consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, lactating, have a medical condition, or are taking any medication. May cause drowsiness, so exercise caution if operating heavy machinery, driving a motor vehicle, or involved in activities requiring mental alertness. Keep out of reach of children.
