How Juicing Can Make Menstrual Cramps A Thing Of The Past!
Menstrual cramps are basically contractions of your uterine muscles. During your period certain hormones called prostaglandins are released. These hormones induce muscular contractions to allow shedding of the inner lining of your uterus. This is a natural and necessary process. Unfortunately, they can also trigger painful cramps.
Besides popping pills, there are various natural ways to alleviate your pain, including:
- Ginger (eg. in ginger juice, ginger tea, ginger supplements)
- Turmeric (eg. in turmeric juice, turmeric tea, turmeric supplements, Organifi Gold)
- Heating pads
- Chamomile teas and other herbal teas
- Specific Juices, like pineapple and carrot juice and Aloe Vera juice
Pineapple And Carrot Juice
Pineapple Juice is amazing. It is abundant in bromelain, an enzyme that can help to relax muscle cramps. As a result it can lower pain associated with cramps. Carrot juice has similar benefits in relaxing your cramping muscles and reducing pain. Pineapples and carrots in one juice double the period cramp fighting power!
- Pineapple – 1-2 cups
- Carrots – 2 large ones
Instructions: Remove the skin of the pineapple and cut it into thin slices. Chop the carrots. Toss the ingredients into your juicer and juice.
Aloe Vera Juice With Honey
Aloe Vera is a fantastic plant that is known for its pain relieving properties. Used topically, it can help wounds and cuts. Used internally, it can also aid your digestion, relieve stomach issues and lower pain during menstruation. Adding honey to your juice helps with blood flow and lowers pain in your body.
- Undiluted Aloe Vera juice – 4 oz
- Water – 4 oz
- Honey – 1 tbsp
Instructions: Mix all the ingredients to make one 8-ounce glass of juice and enjoy. You can have this mixture once in the morning and once again in the evening.
