Golisan for treating PMS (premenstrual syndrome)

While almost all women, from young to old, have to struggle with nasty menstrual cramps every month – again and again, some also suffer from the premenstrual syndrome, PMS. On average, 2 to 4 women out of 10 are affected by PMS.

PMS is the term used to describe psychological and physical complaints that can occur up to two weeks before the onset of menstruation.

Psychological symptoms of PMS include

  • depressive moods and sleeping problems
  • irritability and mood swings
  • fatigue, exhaustion and lack of drive
  • concentration difficulties

PMS can also be accompanied by physical symptoms, such as

  • headaches
  • abdominal pain and back pain
  • digestive problems and an inflated stomach
  • chest pain, joint pain and muscle pain
  • cravings and weight gain
  • edemas
  • acne

In almost every 10th woman with PMS, the psychological symptoms are so severe that those affected are very limited in their everyday life. Doctors refer to this as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), which must be taken very seriously as it can be a really big burden.

It is most likely the hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle, that are responsible for PMS.

Now, almost everyone is familiar with the PMS symptoms described above (men can also be lethargic, irritable and have mood swings). Doctors therefore need to determine whether women are experiencing the symptoms regularly, that is almost every month in connection with their periods, with the help of a PMS diary.

For PMS self therapy, even teenage girls regularly take ibuprofen to relieve symptoms. Even though doctors would recommend hot baths, walks outside and relaxation exercises. If the PMS gets worse, for example if there is additional stress at work, antidepressants are sometimes even used.

The big problem in PMS therapy is that often there is not enough attention paid to the healing power of nature. However, natural plant extracts such as Golisan Saffron Drops or Golisan Ginger Drops can already provide relief.

And with this practical tip, the medicinal journal Health Letter addresses doctors and health experts. Since the article is German, we here is a translation of it:

Golisan as a tip for health experts in the journal Health Letter

Health Letter is writing:

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) occurs primarily in women over 30 and contributes to irritability. depressive mood swings, edema and pain. What many of the afflicted do not know, nature has 2 effective plant extracts for them: saffron and ginger.

Saffron has a stimulating, mood-lifting and stimulating effect. On the other hand, it has a calming effect and promotes sleep. Responsible for this are the carotenoids crocin and crocetin, which are also responsible for the yellow colour of the saffron extract.

Ginger is the perfect complement to saffron extract: The essential oils of the ginger tuber have long been known in popular medicine because of their analgesic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effect. They help with menstrual pain, digestive problems and nausea (also during pregnancy or in case of travel sickness).

This is further supported by 3 studies:

  1. A study by Hausenblas et al. (2013) shows that saffron has an excellent effect on depression.
  2. Another study by Hosseini et al. (2008) with women between 20 and 40 years of age affected by PMS shows a significant improvement in PMS symptoms after taking saffron extract.
  3. The study by Adib Rad et al. (2018) shows, that menstrual pain can be relieved by ginger alone.

Health Letter’s tip for medical practice therefor is:

“Practical tip
The highly concentrated liquid plant extracts of Golisan are characterized by a special water solubility and bioavailability.

Golisan Ginger Drops and Golisan Saffron Drops are made exclusively from high-quality ginger or saffron from organic farming and contain neither artificial additives nor caffeine or other stimulating substances. The products are supplied in dark glass bottles, which protect the plant extracts from light.”

Last but not least, Health Letter includes the report of a 35-year-old user:

“Once a month I was plagued by such severe menstrual pain that I was repeatedly unable to work. Apart from cramps in my stomach, I became depressed and could not relax at all when lying down in the evening. After several months of treatment with Golisan Ginger Drops and Golisan Saffron Drops, my condition improved noticeably. My concentration and attention increased, I was able to sleep normally again and my mood improved considerably.”

Conclusion: Golisan Saffron and Ginger against PMS

Saffron and ginger are a advantageous alternative treatment compared to more aggressive PMS therapies. You should definitely try this before resorting to synthetic drugs or using herbal preparations that can cause severe side effects and interactions with other substances, such as St. John’s wort.
