For the symptomatic relief of premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Is Premular right for you? 

For a time each month are you feeling not quite yourself? Perhaps you are less tolerant, angry, and irritable? 

If this is happening before your period starts and you’re feeling back to feeling like your old self again once you begin to menstruate, you may be suffering from Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). And you’re not alone.  It is estimated that 40% of women will be significantly affected by PMS symptoms at some time during their life and up to 7% will suffer severe symptoms The average age of onset is 26 years.1 

But the good news is that with Premular, there’s something you can do about it. 

Premular is an evidence-based natural medicine that is clinically proven to relieve a range of physical and mental PMS symptoms including irritability, anger, bloating, breast fullness, headache and mood and provides increasing and sustained relief over time.1-4 Premular is also well tolerated and its once-a-day dosing makes it convenient to take.

The Premular Difference

Premular contains a specific extract of the Vitex agnus-castus (Chaste tree), the one that has been used in a number of clinical trials. This extract, referred to as Ze 440, is exclusive to Premular, which means Premular is a Vitex agnus-castus product that has demonstrated significant efficacy in clinical trials, including a double-blind placebo controlled study published in the British Medical Journal.2

One recent publication confirmed that the dose used in Premular is the optimal dose for the relief of PMS symptoms.3

Relief of symptoms: Three published Premular clinical trials suggest significant relief in PMS symptoms for women taking Premular over a 3-month period.2,3 And relief that lasts: Premular can provide increasing and sustained relief over time after 3 cycles.

Premular tablets are easy to take and are well tolerated, with millions of doses recommended worldwide. Premular is manufactured in Switzerland according to proven production methods to help ensure you get a consistently reliable medicine, which is the same medicine used in clinical trials. Premular has also been assigned a ‘well established medicinal use status’ a status based on its history, evidence and excellent tolerability.5,6Learn more about Vitex agnus-castus >

Is Premular likely to interact with any medications?

The outcomes of clinical studies for natural medicines may only apply to the exact product that has been examined. 

How long should Premular be taken for?
