Vitamins B1, B6, B12
Help uterine muscles work at their best
B vitamins are critical to the tissues that matter most for pain relief: muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. Researchers even tested vitamin B1 against ibuprofen for period cramps, and concluded it’s just as effective, but safer. (1)
- 7 clinical trials show significant period pain reduction with vitamin B1
- 1,454 women were included in those studies

Antioxidant & uterine oxygenator
Pain scientists think this heavy-hitting antioxidant relieves period cramps by boosting the flow of oxygen to uterine muscles, and calming inflammation that triggers cramps in the first place (1).
- 5 clinical trials show significant period pain reduction with zinc
- 614 women were included in those studies

Calms period cramp-causing inflammation
Ginger prevents period cramps by blocking inflammatory compounds from building up in the uterus (1). Because they work in similar ways, scientists compared ginger to ibuprofen for period pain relief, and concluded it was just as effective (2).
- 6 clinical trials show significant period pain reduction with ginger
- 687 women were included in those studies

Antispasmodic herb for uterine relaxation
Treasured by ancient healers, fenugreek’s cramp-relieving properties are now clinically proven (1). It’s still the most commonly used—and most effective—herb for period cramps among communities who rely solely on natural medicines (2).
- 5 clinical trials show significant period pain reduction with fenugreek
- 341 women were included in these studies

Traditionally important herb for menstrual relief
A go-to for period cramp relief in Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern pain science suggests dong quai regulates the rhythm of the uterine muscles, helping them shed the uterine lining in a controlled, comfortable way. (1,2)

Potent source of anti-inflammatory pigments
Marigolds were sacred to the Aztecs and widely used as pain medicine. Now we know why: research shows its bright orange pigments are powerful antioxidants that help soothe pain and inflammation on the spot (1).

Fast-acting cramp relief*
Painkillers were never designed for period pain, and can cause more problems than they fix. The FDA has warned about their potentially serious side effects (1), especially when taken long-term (2) (like every month for the ~35 years you have a menstrual cycle).
We developed Cramp Aid because we couldn’t find a healthy alternative to painkillers that actually worked. Not everyone is able to quit painkillers cold turkey, but Cramp Aid helps most people reduce their reliance on them. And when it comes to your long-term health, any reduction can make a big difference.

One box of Cramp Aid is enough for 2 cycles for most people, but you may need a full box each cycle if you get intense cramps for 3 days or more. You’ll be able to easily adjust your subscription delivery frequency anytime you need.

test efficacy content product 2
Take 2 easy-to-swallow tablets everyday, all month long, no later than 6 hours before bedtime. Use consistently for best results. If you have a sensitive stomach, take with food.
Needed to make serotonin
Vitamin B6 relieved PMS in so many clinical trials, some scientists think having low B6—and making too little serotonin as a result—is actually the root cause of PMS.
Antioxidant spice with uplifting properties
With science suggesting serotonin-boosting effects, saffron’s time-honored antidepressant benefits are backed by impressive clinical results. In one study it lifted PMS sadness by 50% for most women. In another, it cut sugar cravings by 78%. (1,2)
- 3 clinical trials show significant PMS relief with saffron
- 308 women were included in these studies

Linked to PMS risk in very large studies
The evidence supporting calcium supplements for PMS is so strong (1), even federal health guidelines recommend them (2). One large study showed they reduced PMS mood swings, bloating, cravings, and back pain by nearly half (3).
- 11 clinical trials show significant PMS relief with calcium
- 1,669 women were included in these studies

Stress reliever, critical for hormonal health
Key in regulating stress, sleep, and inflammation, magnesium is a big deal for hormones. It clinically improves PMS moods, migraines, and bloating so dramatically, some scientists point to low magnesium as one of the main root causes of PMS.
Calms inflammation & regulates hormones
Zinc is essential to the metabolism of all hormones, and helps keep them in balance by soothing stress and inflammation. Scientists have linked low zinc to PMS and acne, but find zinc supplements to be highly effective at relieving both.
Adaptogenic herb for mental clarity
Research suggests a strong relationship between stress and PMS (1). Rhodiola is clinically shown to regulate the body’s stress response, and improve mood, memory, and focus in as little as 30 minutes (2).
- 13 clinical trials show significant stress & mood improvement with rhodiola
- 1,260 people were included in these studies

In our survey of users, most people noticed symptoms improve after using Steady Mood for less than one cycle. But consistency pays off. In clinical studies, the efficacy of Steady Mood’s ingredients strengthened over time, and worked best during the third cycle of use (1,2). The stronger your daily ritual, the better the results.

Rhodiola, one ingredient in Steady Mood, has been shown to have energizing effects that can last up to 6 hours. If you're sensitive to adaptogens like rhodiola, we recommend taking Steady Mood no later than 6 hours before bedtime.
Some herbs commonly found in other PMS supplements are known to make birth control pills less effective, especially vitex (also called chasteberry).1 We intentionally left ingredients with well-documented interactions with birth control pills out of Steady Mood’s formula.
Note that any two medicines—whether drug or herbal—can possibly interact if they need to use the same cellular machinery in their metabolism at the same time. If you’re on medication, always tell your doctor about all the supplements you take.

It took until the third month of taking for anything to happen but once it did it felt borderline miraculous. After 20 odd years of crippling pain and nausea I have been functional for 2 cycles now.
I was skeptical this would work and was thinking I would likely need to sign up for medication for PMDD but gave this a go after trying a different natural supplement my Gyno recommended which helped my physical symptoms and not my mood. Like clockwork, I feel short tempered and even irrational rage about 10 days before my period. I’m also a middle aged mom so this is not a good combo. I needed something to help stabilize my mood so I could be normal for more than half the month. Surprisingly, this stuff works for me. I know because I forgot to take it for about a week and it was uncomfortable feeling that impatience and irritation come back full force. One note is to check your vitamin levels so you don’t get too much calcium or iron if combining this with other vitamin supplements. I did that math early on and had to adjust my vitamins. Grateful I found a supplement that works and I can skip visits to the pharmacy .
After the first few weeks of taking Steady Mood I noticed a definite improvement in my mood during that time of the month. My mood was much more even, and my cramps weren't even as bad- definitely re-ordering!
Seems to help
I'm only 1 cycle in, but this definitely seems to help
My daughter has struggled with painful periods since her periods began. Ibuprofen alone does not cut the pain. She doesn’t want to take birth control pills or other prescription meds. She is 19 now and has such severe pain that she is unable to go to school or work the her first 2-3 days of having her period. She took DeLune along with her regular dose of ibuprofen and for the first time ever, she is working less than a day after her period started! I’m so happy that I’m crying! Thank you, DeLune! She has only started using DeLune, but I’m hopeful my daughter can finally live pain free!!
