Hey, that time of the month is really a pain in the a$$, right, ladies? Want to try out something safe and has no side effects? Try out the herbs below, which you can get at any Chinese herbal shops. 

1. Dong Gui (Chinese Angelica or Angelica Sinensis)

    This herb is used to regulate the menstrual cycle and help alleviate menstrual cramps. It has been dubbed as the "female ginseng" due to such abilities. Other benefits of Dong Gui include re-establishing a menstrual cycle after a user stops taking birth control pills; ease PMS and help improve on conditions of anemia; and relieve symptoms of menopause. It is able to alleviate menstrual cramping by relaxing the muscles of the uterus and dilating the blood vessels, due to the coumarin chemicals present in the herb. 

2. Chuan Xiong (Chuanxiong Rhizoma)

    Since the Song Dynasty, Chinese women have used to take this herb in combination with three other herbs: Chinese foxglove, red peony and angelica. Chuan Xiong is combined with these three herbs to make soup as a blood tonic to alleviate PMS, cut down on menstrual pain and improve overall health, especially postpartum health. 

3. Bai Shao (White Peony Root)

    Among its benefits is blood circulation improvement and nourishment. It also inhibits the excessive synthesis of prostaglandins that may lead to an over-active uterus and endometrial pain. The inhibition of prostaglandins is due to the fact that Bai Shao can strengthen the liver, in turn increases the efficiency of protein and fat metabolism, resulting in the inhibition of excessive prostaglandins. 

4. Yi Mu Cao (Chinese Motherwort)

    Apart from treating menstrual problems, the leaves of Yi Mu Cao have been used to clear blood clots that occur in menstrual disorders and after childbirth, as well as improve blood circulation. 

5. Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis Rhizome)

    This herb helps relieve pain and strengthen blood circulation. When used together with Chuan Xiong, it can help relieve body aches and headaches. This herb contains the active chemical di-tetrahydropalmatine (THP), a neuroactive alkaloid with analgesic action that alleviates cramping pain.
