About smooth muscle

There are three types of muscle tissue. One type is skeletal muscle, which is responsible for the movement of the skeleton and organs such as the eye and tongue. Because it may be controlled voluntarily, it is referred to as voluntary muscles. Another type is smooth muscle, which forms the muscular component of tubular (hollow) organs such as in the gastrointestinal tract, the uterus, the bladder and blood vessels. Because this type of muscle is under control of hormones and the autonomic nervous system, it is referred to as involuntary muscle. Contraction (spasm) that is sustained in any kind of muscle is known as cramping

Normal menstruation

Menstruation is the monthly shedding at the lining of a woman's uterus. The stages of the menstrual cycle are triggered by the rise and fall of hormones. The pituitary gland in the brain and the ovaries in the female reproductive tract manufacture and release hormones at certain times during the menstrual cycle. These hormones cause the organs of the reproductive tract to respond. The uterus consists of three layers of tissue. The middle layer forms the bulk of the uterine wall and consists of smooth muscle fibers. The inner layer is a mucous membrane that contains many glands, and it is part of this layer that is shed each month. Prostaglandins are potent substances produced by most cells and have a wide variety of effects on the body. They mimic hormones. Menstruation is just one body process in which they participate.

Some of the features of normal menstruation include:

  • a healthy balance of prostaglandins, which leads for example, to normal contraction of the smooth muscle layer of the uterus and normal blood flow to the uterus
  • a healthy balance of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which means there is less susceptibility to spasms caused by the prostaglandins. Cramps can occur as a consequence of normal menstruation also. a healthy balance of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which means there is less susceptibility to spasms caused by the prostaglandins. Cramps can occur as a consequence of normal menstruation also.

How Cramptex keeps you healthy:

  • Provides relief from discomfort associated with menstruation
    Corydalis, Raspberry Leal, Wild Yam, Cramp Bark and Ginger have been used traditionally to provide relief from discomfort associated with menstruation. Cramp Bark and Wild Yarn rnay do this by assisting the normal activity of the smooth muscle layer of the uterus. Ginger and Corydalis also assist by supporting blood circulation and promoting healthy blood flow to the uteris.
  • Provide antispasmodic activity to ease occasional spasms of other smooth muscle
    In addition to the uterus, Cramp Bark and Wild Yam have been used traditionally to ease occasional spasms in the smooth muscle of other organs such as the lower intestinal tract and bladder. Because the prostate consists of glandular tissue and supporting stoma (dense tibro-elastic connective tissue containing smooth muscle fibers) these herbs may also support healthy function in the prostate.

So, Cramplex can help:

  • provide antispasmodic activity to ease occasional spasms of smooth muscle including those associated with the menstrual cycle
  • provide antispasmodic activity to ease occasional spasms of smooth muscle including those associated with the bowel/lower intestinal tract
  • provide antispasmodic activity to ease occasional spasms of smooth muscle including those associated with the male genitourinary tract
  • provide relief from discomfort associated with menstruation
  • support healthy bowel function
  • provide temporary relief of bowel spasm and constipation
  • promote a natural, healthy balance within the female endocrine system
  • support female reproductive system health
