Once in a blue moon, humanity invents something that changes how we look at the world around us. Sometimes, the way tech changes our views on life are pretty stark—such as how humanity reacted to the invention of the telephone. Other times, the inventions are subtler.
In most cases, the creation of a new invention makes us take pause and realize that our overall quality of life has improved greatly. In no place is this truer than with our health. Medical advances like the invention of blood banks, dietary research, and even the invention of antibiotics have allowed people to live longer, happier lives than ever before.
Unfortunately when it comes to women’s health, the dramatic advances have seemingly been few and far between. But recently, a product came to market that may change how we approach symptoms of PMS, or premenstrual syndrome. Serenol is a supplement that fits the bill as a product that can improve the quality of life for the millions of women across the country who deal with PMS every month. In the past, women who suffered from the emotional symptoms of PMS were told to “just deal with it,” but with Serenol, we’re beginning to see it as an issue that we don’t necessarily have to endure.
What is Serenol?
Serenol is a drug-free supplement shown to alleviate the emotional symptoms of PMS, which specifically include irritability, moodiness, and uneasiness*(1). Seriously, that moody-uneasy-cranky feeling that comes around with your period isn’t just you, it’s a symptom of PMS that you don’t just have to deal with. In fact, women who take Serenol report a marked improvement in the symptoms of irritability, moodiness, and uneasiness that often come in the days before and immediately after the start of your menstrual cycle.
This supplement has been hailed as a truly remarkable change in the world of PMS. Knowing Serenol is available means that women can now potentially prevent the emotional turmoil of PMS. In other words, it could potentially turn PMS from an inescapable moment of suffering to a thing of the past.
How does Serenol work?
Believe it or not, there are no drugs involved in Serenol. Serenol is composed of Chromax® chromium picolinate, purified pollen extract, and Royal Jelly. The purified pollen extract and Royal Jelly work together to help ease many of the emotional symptoms, while Chromax® chromium picolinate is believed to alleviate certain physical symptoms like food cravings and water retention (1). By including this trio of ingredients in a dietary supplement, researchers have been able to create a way to alleviate PMS symptoms that would be otherwise unavoidable.
PMS is a huge quality of life issue among many women.
PMS is a series of symptoms that women experience shortly before the start of their menstrual cycle—as well as for the first couple of days after. These symptoms typically include physical issues like tender breasts, sore muscles, headaches, water retention (bloating), and cravings.
In many cases, physical symptoms are accompanied by emotional symptoms. Depending on the woman, the emotional symptoms can be far more devastating than the physical ones. It’s not unusual to hear of women having mood swings, feeling uneasy, getting a “case of the blues,” or even just feeling nervous over little things during this time of the month.
Around 75 percent of all women will experience some form of PMS symptoms, with around 20 to 40 percent of all women feeling a general sense of discomfort. If you’re part of the group living with this uncomfortability, why not try and make a change?
The ingredients in Serenol don’t fix all the PMS problems you might have, but they do solve lots of them.
Too often, we hear of supplements that have been given a “pie in the sky” type of guarantee—only to have absolutely no data backing it up. This is not the case with the ingredients in Serenol, which have been featured in a multitude of studies.
A double-blind, placebo crossover study illustrates the power of Serenol’s ingredients very well. In this study, people were given a placebo for two months to describe the improvements they found in their PMS. Then, after two months finished, they were given ingredients found in Serenol for two months. These women reported a 70 percent reduction in irritability as well as a very impressive 71 percent reduction in mood swings after taking active treatment (1). Serenol’s ingredients have also been shown to reduce water retention, sleep disturbances, and premenstrual weight gain (1)(3). Impressive? Oh, it gets better!
In a survey of approximately 300 Serenol users, 77 percent of women who took the supplement for three cycles noticed a drop in PMS symptoms. All things considered, it’s unsurprising that over 3,000 doctors suggest Serenol for women who struggle with PMS.
The change in how women are seeing PMS is real.
To fully understand the impact Serenol is making, think about changing what it means to experience PMS. Imagine dreading the way you will inevitably feel for one week a month, month after month. Imagine being terrified of turning “crazy” due to mood swings or irritability that seemingly come out of nowhere when you get your period. Imagine finding out that you no longer have to feel that way, and that you can take control of your life, and feel like yourself again.
It’s a pretty incredible feeling knowing that you can take back control with a product like Serenol, and the results from women taking Serenol truly show it. Needless to say, the way we’re seeing the world of PMS is changing—and Serenol’s to thank for it.
