Extra Virgin Coconut Oil prevents menstrual cramps!!
I have been taking organic extra virgin coconut oil for about 3 months now to help prevent genital herpes symptoms, and it's been working terrifically! It's the best thing I've tried next to prescription meds. Anyway, in doing this I've also found I haven't had ANY menstrual cramps when I get my period. Usually I get mild to moderate cramps the first day, but not since taking the supplements. I take anywhere from 3-6 per day with food. While I do get some of the other symptoms, they too seem to be milder, all except fatigue, I still get run-down feeling and very tired. But not feeling like I have to take a pain medication is wonderful! Just thought I'd through that out there for anyone who's interested in trying something to help stop their cramps naturally. I haven't found anything online about research in this area for coconut oil, but maybe there should be!
