The science behind Semaine
Semaine was formulated by one of our cofounders—a biologist from the University of Washington's Medical School. Based on extensive research on our immune response and our periods, Semaine supplements directly target the inflammation that spikes during our menstrual cycles.
Our development team behind Semaine is always reading the latest science journal articles on women’s health and period pain. We distill that information on our science blog so you can get to know your body better than anyone and explain what’s happening at a biological level. Come geek out with us about period science.
Why target inflammation?
Your immune system responds to your natural cycle. It's suppressed during ovulation and inflammation comes roaring back when your period is about to start. People with more period pain tend to have a stronger immune response and this means more inflammation. That’s why all 9 ingredients in Semaine were chosen—to work together to support your immune system and lessen the inflammatory response in your body.
