How period pain works
How it starts
Hormonal fluctuations at the start of menstruation trigger inflammatory compounds to build up in the uterus.
How period pain works
These inflammatory compounds make uterine muscles tightly contract.
How period pain works
Lack of Oxygen = Cramps
Uterine muscles contract so powerfully, they can close off blood vessels that supply oxygen. This leads to period pain.
Created by menstrual health experts, Cramp Aid contains herbs and nutrients that target period pain at the source.
Vitamins B1, B6, and B12 are key players in muscle contraction, nerve signaling, and hormonal regulation. Research shows they can help address a range of period symptoms and help restore important nutrition lost in menstrual blood.*
Zinc’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may help boost blood flow to the uterus, preventing the cut-off of oxygen to uterine muscles and the painful cramps that follow.*
Research suggests ginger inhibits the inflammatory compounds that cause period pain in the first place. Studies show ginger to be as effective at reducing period pain as conventional painkillers like ibuprofen, but with fewer side effects.*
Calendula flowers are commonly known as marigolds. Backed by ancient wisdom and modern science, pain researchers think calendula’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties are responsible for its ability to ease period cramps.*
Dong quai contains a number of compounds thought to promote antispasmodic activity.* Studies show it can help the uterus relax and contract in a normal, rhythmic fashion, helping to regulate flow and shed the uterine lining comfortably.*
Fenugreek is one of the oldest known herbal medicines. It’s used all over the world for various menstrual difficulties, like relieving cramping, controlling flow, and regulating cycle timing.*
Backed by research
We created our anti-cramp formula using the best peer-reviewed menstrual health research. We consider randomized, double-blind, placebo trials to be the gold standard.

I was having REALLY bad cramps to the point of considering going to urgent care. Ever since I've been taking Cramp Aid, my period has changed drastically. I still get a little bit of cramps but it's very bareable. My mood is even better during my period too with these pills. I usually start to get cramps about a week before so I start taking it about once a day. And once my period starts, I take it 3 times a day. It might take a few periods to fully feel the effects. The first time I tried it, I felt a drastic difference and my cramps were less but I still had to take advil. Now, I don't take any pain medication at all during my period! This is coming from someone who used to take pain medication that worked and after a while, it stopped working.
amazing! My cramps usually leave me unable to move, throwing up, and/or passing out. I'm not able to take normal painkillers so I got desperate and decided to give De Lune a go and IT WORKS! I only need 2 rounds on the first day of my cycle and I'm pretty much good for the rest of the cycle! (I take plain ginger capsules for my less severe cramps) I still have lower back cramps that leave me bed ridden on day 1, but as for the uterus cramps, they no longer have me passing out or throwing up!! I am so happy with this product. please never stop making Cramp Aid!!!
I used the cramp aid for the first time and i still had horrible cramps i hope that it works the next time i try it.
I have to say, I am very impressed!! I noticed that not only did I not experience any major cramps, but I had energy! Which made it possible to go about my day. Very grateful to the development and availability of this product. Xo
Best second decision on my period experience. First was dumping tampons and using the Ruby Cup. I used to Midol Extreme because it was the only drug that would help the day go a bit better. Then it didn't work so much and I wanted to stop using harmful drugs and go on a more natural medicine diet. That's when I found DeLune! It works much better. To describe my pains are: intense cramps in front and back of lower abdomen, sharp intense pains that make tears appear, and the feeling of a boba bead popping inside you where your embryos are located. (that was with taking Midol) So I stopped that and now I don't have the popping feeling or the sharp pains. I do still get the usual cramps and lower back pain. Only Con is that this make me burp and it tastes like Thanksgiving. Not a bad thing.
