Let’s talk about how to stop period pain or menstrual cramps.

With period cramps, you experience cramping in the lower part of the body. It’s the uterus itself that’s cramping or contracting, which can cause a painful period.

A great way to get instant relief from menstrual cramps is to try stretching. To do this stretch, you need to lay on your stomach and push your hands into the ground straightening your arms and stretching your back.

However, to get to the root cause of the issue and get rid of menstrual cramps, we need to lower a chemical in the body called prostaglandins.

People will typically use ibuprofen to lower prostaglandins. But ibuprofen has side effects. Thankfully, there are natural alternatives you can try to help lower prostaglandins.

The best natural remedies for menstrual cramps:
1. Cinnamon
2. Vitamin D3, calcium, and magnesium
3. Omega-3 fatty acids (cod liver oil)
