Dealing with breast pain is no laughing matter. Once you realize you are not alone in your pain, you can learn to navigate the symptoms and find ways to get comfort. However, the breast tenderness, discomfort and inconvenience of it all, is no picnic!
Hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and prolactin can spike during monthly cycles. This, in combination with iodine deficiency, can disrupt the natural life and death cycle of breast cells. Too many breast cells in the mix can cause some major discomfort, including (but not limited to) breast tenderness, aches, heaviness, and swelling.
Women who suffer from monthly hormonal related breast pain turn to Violet, a daily iodine supplement that has been proven to reduce monthly breast pain*. Clinical trials show that 74% of women experienced significant improvement in their breast discomfort after taking Violet for 60 days.
There are other things that can work to increase your breast health and REDUCE breast pain: lymphatic drainage, wearing the correct bras, and taking time to care for yourself (we will be talking more about self care next month).
Fibrocystic breast disease is also a culprit of breast pain. It is a benign condition characterized by lumpy, painful breasts and palpable fibrosis. It commonly affects women of reproductive age, but it can also occur during menopause, especially in women taking estrogens.
Research has shown that iodine supplementation is helpful for women suffering from fibrocystic breast disease.
A trace element that is naturally present in some foods, Iodine is added to some types of salt, and is available as a dietary supplement. It is an important and essential component of the thyroid hormones and a lack of Iodine can contribute to annoying breast pain.
An Iodine deficiency can cause breast pain and the associated tenderness and swelling. Although we have made great strides to increase iodine intake across the world, there can still be situations where a woman could need additional iodine:
Violet is designed to remove cyclical breast pain from the equation by treating the cause instead of the symptoms. Our patented OTC formula combines two types of iodine to help restore the natural balance – Iodine and Selenium. The unique molecular iodine structure targets breast tissue to reduce swelling. Not only can this first-of-its-kind formula alleviate breast discomfort, but it has also been shown to promote overall breast health.
