No one talks about it seriously, but for many women, emotional PMS symptoms are a major burden. Emotional PMS can,
- Put a strain on your closest relationships,
- Hinder career opportunities,
- Sidetrack your best intentions as a parent, friend and partner
Too many doctors don’t know what scientists now understand about what causes PMS and how to stop it.
Study after study points to the fact that the emotional symptoms of PMS are not caused by hormones.
Female hormone fluctuation determines the timing of emotional PMS symptoms, but doesn’t actually cause the mood swings, irritability, anger, cravings, brain fog and gloominess.
How do scientists know hormones aren’t the cause?
Multiple studies tracking the hormone levels of women who experience severe PMS symptoms and women who experience little to no PMS symptoms show no difference in hormone fluctuations between the two groups.
What causes emotional PMS symptoms?
While women with and without emotional PMS symptoms have the same hormonal profiles, scientists have discovered a stark difference in brain activity at specific times in the menstrual cycle.
In cerebral scans, scientists observe a huge spike in glucose uptake in the brain during the premenstrual phase in women who experience severe emotional PMS symptoms.
In women who don’t experience emotional PMS symptoms, no abnormal glucose spike occurs.
This spike in glucose uptake occurs directly before, and during, the onset of emotional PMS symptoms and occurs only in a specific part of the brain: the cerebellum.
This phenomenon points to the true cause of emotional PMS symptoms a higher energy need in the cerebellum that isn’t being met.
The cerebellum is responsible in part for mood regulation and emotional response. When the cerebellum doesn’t have enough energy to function properly, it can’t control emotions the way it does during the rest of the month.
This is why emotional PMS symptoms are often accompanied with food cravings.
The cerebellum is begging for more energy, and junk food with easily digestible carbohydrates or fats provides the fastest rise in blood glucose levels.
In fact, studies show chocolate bars (a quick digesting form of sugar and fat) provide measurable and immediate relief from emotional PMS symptoms, but only temporarily. When blood sugar crashes after the spike, symptoms returned even worse than before.
Scientists suspect a combination of genetic and environmental factors leave some women less able to keep the cerebellum’s supply of glucose constant and less efficient at turning glucose into energy once it reaches the cerebellum.
During the premenstrual period, the cerebellum needs more energy than it does during the rest of the month. This means that,
- If blood sugar spikes and then crashes, glucose supply to the cerebellum is interrupted and the brain can’t function properly, causing emotional PMS symptoms.
- If brain cells in the cerebellum can’t metabolize glucose into energy fast enough to keep up with higher energy needs, the brain can’t function properly, causing PMS.
So how do you attack the root of the problem and end PMS for good?
Based on this new scientific understanding of PMS, 100 milligrams of oxaloacetate, an over-the-counter nutritional supplement sold under the name Jubilance, was tested in two separate double blind, placebo controlled clinical trials.
Taken daily for one full menstrual cycle, Jubilance was proven to drastically reduce emotional PMS symptoms. In fact, the results were more positive than any other over-the-counter treatment ever tested in a clinical trial. Within one month women taking Jubilance experienced,
- 54% reduction in PMS-related gloominess
- 51% reduction in PMS-related anxiety
- 36% reduction in PMS-related stress
- 18% reduction in PMS-related irritability
How did Jubilance have such a dramatic effect on emotional PMS symptoms? Scientists hypothesize it attacks the root cause of emotional PMS from two fronts:
- By supporting healthy liver function to keep blood sugar levels stable (less severe spikes and crashes), oxaloacetate keeps the cerebellum supplied with the glucose it needs at all times.
- Oxaloacetate, the active ingredient in Jubilance, is part of the Kreb’s cycle. Mitochondria in brain cells utilize the Kreb’s cycle to turn glucose into energy.
By supercharging healthy mitochondrial function in brain cells, Jubilance bolsters the cerebellum’s ability to turn blood sugar into more energy faster. This makes the difference between function and dysfunction during the premenstrual phase when energy is needed most.
Life is hard enough without PMS.
