Mindfulness and Meditation Drive Growth in the Menstrual Cramps Treatment Market

Menstrual cramps are caused due to elevated levels of prostaglandins in the uterus leading to excessive contraction of the uterine muscles. Popular menstrual cramps treatment products include creams, supplements, and painkillers. Creams work by providing heating that relaxes cramped muscles while supplements provide vitamins and herbs that help reduce cramp intensity. Painkillers minimize pain through analgesics. With rising awareness of adverse effects of painkillers, more women are adopting natural remedies like meditation and mindfulness.
