Research on OPC and Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)



PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME

During the premenstrual period women can be confronted with a wide variety of psychological and physical symptoms that are classified as PMS. In general scientists agree that these symptoms occur because of an increased sensibility of the body to the normal physiological variations in the oestrogen and progesterone levels. The most common symptoms are painful, swollen breasts, a bloated stomach, a puffy face, undefined pelvic pain, weight-gain, functional disturbances in the legs, irritation, depression and headaches.1



19872- The effect of 200mg of OPC per day was tested on one hundred and sixty-five patients suffering from one of more PMS complaints during the second half of the cycle. In sixty percent of the women the physical disorders disappeared after two cycles, in eighty percent of the women the physical disorders disappeared after four cycles.

Of the women suffering from physiological PMS symptoms, half reported that these problems also disappeared after the fourth cycle. In addition, OPC also appeared to take effective action against menstrual problems (dysmenorrhoea), which disappeared in sixty-six percent of the women after the fourth cycle.2
