What Helps Period Pain?
Period pain affects more than 80% of those who menstruate at some point in their lives. These menstrual cramps, which are often accompanied by irritability, headaches, bloating and insomnia, can range in severity from a mild annoyance to completely debilitating. There are a range of natural options you can try to help deal with period pain (or dysmenorrhea to give it its medical name). From a soak in a hot bath, holding a hot water bottle on the stomach or gentle exercise to meditation, there are many potential solutions that all have varying success rates. But did you know you can now also help tackle period pain by drinking tea? What if pain relief for periods was as simple as boiling up the kettle and popping a teabag in a cup?
How can drinking tea give pain relief for periods?
We're not talking about any old cup of tea here. This is herbal menstrual tea, which harnesses the healing powers of some of the earth's most potent natural solutions. Moon Tea by Biddie is a 100% natural hand blended whole leaf tea in tea bags- and it is winning five-star reviews from users. These tea bags promise to help tackle the painful cramping which often comes in the first few days of a period. Not only that, but it also aims to tackle other associated symptoms including PMS and anxiety, while regulating any hormonal imbalances caused by your period.
Overall, it aims to act as a uterine tonic and restore a sense of calm and balance during that time of the month. These all-natural tea bags contain a special blend of hibiscus, rosehip, rose petals, ginger, chamomile, raspberry leaves and dandelion leaves. These help to give your body a boost of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and D. These also boast analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties to help deal with the pain of your monthly cycle.

Helping people everywhere have a more positive period experience
Biddie, the company behind Moon Tea, believes more needs to be done to raise awareness of menstrual health in the UK. That is why £1 from every pack of Moon Tea bought is going to the Bloody Good Period campaign, which is working to help achieve more positive period, pain-free period experiences.
