While some menstrual cramps are mild, some are severely painful that they can obstruct hinder a woman from performing his regular activities for several days. Sambong helps in reliving menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea by stimulating blood flow thereby helping women in releasing the molecular compounds called prostaglandins, which causes the uterus to contract and constrict the blood supply that causes the menstrual cramps.
