Not sure 136% of daily recommended zinc is the best idea
The tea tastes nice. I didn't really notice a relief from my cramps with the cramp aid, but I only suffer from cramps sporadically. I suffered from nausea, headaches, and diarrhea while taking these vitamins. These are unusual symptoms for me. I've previously experienced stomach cramps, nausea and vomiting while taking zinc supplements. These daily vitamins include 15 mg of zinc. Each dose of cramp aid contains 8 mg of zinc, so taking these capsules up to 3x/day as recommended during cramp pain along with the vitamins seems to push the limits of how much zinc one should consume in a day. The Mayo Clinic suggests that the recommended daily amount of zinc is 8 milligrams (mg) for women, with 40 mg of zinc a day as the upper limit dose for adults.
Hi Lindsay! De Lune co-founder and Registered Dietitian here :) We’re so sorry Steady Mood didn’t agree with you! Some people can feel off after supplementing with minerals like zinc, calcium, magnesium, or iron if your body isn’t used to taking them regularly. Taking Steady Mood with a meal or snack can minimize this. Taking one tablet in the morning and one in the evening, rather than both at once, can also help ease your body into minerals. While the upper limit for zinc is 40mg a day for women, upper limits are set based on long-term intakes (i.e exceeding the upper limit every day for months or years). You only take Cramp Aid during your period, rather than all month long. Our bodies don’t have a storage system for zinc, so there isn’t any risk of the zinc in Cramp Aid accumulating in your body from one cycle to the next. While you do take Steady Mood all month long, the amount of zinc in Steady Mood is well below the upper limit, and the upper limit is not exceeded even when Steady Mood and the maximum daily dose of Cramp Aid are taken together. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughtful feedback, and for trusting De Lune with your menstrual health. With love & health, Courtney Mayszak, RDN, LDN
