Vitamin E could help ease the pain of menstrual cramps, recent study findings suggest.

High levels of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins have been implicated in dysmenorrhea, or painful menstruation.

Because vitamin E can help block prostaglandin formation, researchers decided to test the vitamin as a treatment for dysmenorrhea.

The researchers studied 100 high school students aged 16 to 18 who reported experiencing mild, moderate or severe pain during menstruation. Half of the students took five vitamin E tablets per day for 2 days before and 3 days after they began menstruating, while the other half, the comparison group, took five inactive placebo tablets.

At the 2-month follow-up, individuals in both the vitamin E group and the comparison group reported experiencing less menstrual pain than they did at the start of the study. Students in the vitamin E group, however, reported slightly less pain than those in the comparison group.
