“I feel confident and sexy:” Introducing Guud Ambassador, Gabriela

Feeling a little low when you’re on your period is normal. In fact, more than 90% of women experience at least some negative period-related symptoms.

But do you ever feel so bad that even getting out of bed is a challenge? That’s how Guud ambassador Gabriela felt every single month. She got in touch with us and now that she’s in tune with her cycle and taking Guud supplements, she feels better than ever, all month long.

“When I stopped taking the pill, my body was completely disoriented,” she said.

“My period was MIA for a very long time, I lost a lot of hair, my boobs hurt like crazy and I had massive cramps and acne.”

From PMS to Problem-Free

PMS is a collective term used to describe a variety of physical and mental symptoms you might experience around your period. Things like mood swings, sore boobs, intense cravings, cramps, anxiety, acne, headaches, bloating… the list is long (and depressing!). They’re all normal, but normal doesn’t make them suck any less.

For the most part, we’re told to live with these symptoms; that they are just a part of being a woman.

For more extreme symptoms, some women turn to painkillers or start taking the pill but these are not the only options. When you understand the cause of these symptoms, you can start working with your body, instead of against it.

“Guud has completely changed my life,” said Gabriela. “My cycle is now completely normal and natural I don’t have any of the problems I had before. I feel good all month long – confident and sexy - no matter what part of my cycle I’m in It’s honestly amazing.”

Supplements play a big role in helping women like Gabriela feel guud, but we also teach women how to listen to their bodies.

“I am now more in tune with my body than I’ve ever been in my whole life,” she said.

“I listen to what my body needs – rest, activity, nourishing food, self-care, downtime – and I respect those needs I can tell my body is grateful.”

If you have PMS, you might be deficient in magnesium.

Guud Inside is another option. This supplement helps you maintain a healthy heart and brain and is full of healthy fats such as Omega-3 which can help reduce the symptoms of PMS.

Our Omega-3 supplement is also made from algae, and not from fish oil, making it 100% plant-based and sustainable (and good for our vegan friends too!).
