A study found in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that Vitamin E can significantly reduce the pain of menstrual cramps.
Menstrual cramping is caused by an access build up of substances called prostaglandins. Vitamin E fortunately, can assist in blocking prostaglandin from forming thus easing the pain of menstrual cramping.
The studied was carried out in high schools with students between the ages of 16 and 18 reporting mild to severe pain during menstruation.
Half of the students were given Vitamin E tablets in the days leading up and after menstruation, whilst the other group was given a placebo.
The results after 2 months proved that Vitamin E significantly decreased pain during menstruation as those given the Vitamin E described drastic improvements.
