Anion: A Natural Pain Relief for Dysmenorrhea

“Those days” – code for some excruciating and mind boggling monthly menstrual cramps that take over your entire day. If only we could sleep it away and wake up when it’s all over, but no, it happens when you need to work or have some important things to attend to. A pill, a beer, hell, we tried it all! While the monthly period is a reminder of every woman’s wonderful gift, it’s also one of those things that feels like a curse especially if you’re one of the many who experiences dysmenorrhea.

Dysmenorrhea is the cramping pain in the lower abdomen that usually occurs on the first or second day when your period begins. During menstruation, the excessive level of hormone prostaglandin makes the uterus squeeze hard, blocking the arteries and thus, causing the pain.

During these times, there are a lot of natural remedies that can help ease the pain. There are microwavable heating packs that can warm up the lower abdomen, or we can soak in a warm bath to relieve the cramp. But aside from these remedies that involve heat, there is a pad best for “those days.” Known as negative ions, anion – naturally found in lighting, ocean surf, waterfalls, and mountain air, among other sources – might be the best solution to cramps. This technology infused in pads improves alertness and relaxes people who are in severe pain and relieves menstrual discomfort. 

In the Philippines, Wellgold International Inc. distributes Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins, available in five variants: Panty Liner, Ultra Day Pad, Ultra Day Non-Wing, Ultra Night Pad, and All Night Pad. Each Jeunesse pad made of the softest sterilized cotton comes with an anion strip which helps to alleviate menstrual discomforts like dysmenorrhea and bacteria-causing odor. The product has  specially designed seven layers of protection to ensure comfort during your period.

Unlike your regular pad, Jeunesse Anion balances pH and hormone levels, eliminates unwanted odor, and fights against vaginal irritations and infections. It also stays dry for a longer time, perfect for women on the go.


So if you think you’ve tried it all and still you feel like a beaten up doll during your menstrual cycle, this might be the best time to try Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin and Liners. The product is currently available at Watsons, selected Mercury Drug outlets, SM department stores’ health and beauty section, Robinsons Supermarket, Shopwise, Rustans, Waltermart, Landmark department store, PCX stores, selected LCC Malls in Bicol plus other stores nationwide.
