Seriously. I have tried everything. I am a 37 year old woman who has had PMDD since puberty … to the point of it severely affecting my life. Lost jobs, relationships, ect. Marea has lifted that cloud and allowed me to be a happy, successful, energetic woman who is no longer a monster two and a half weeks a month. Thank you so much!
Okay, I waited my full cycle to share my review of this, because I didn't want to give anyone false hope. For a little context, I suffer from PMS, but also Pre Menstrual Exacerbation, which means that my existing mental health disorders get SIGNIFICANTLY worse during my period and in the week before and after it. I haven't been able to find a solution.
Now, I want to emphasize that I was already taking most of the vitamins and minerals that are found in the Marea mix. I honestly just wanted an easier (and better tasting) way to take them than downing a bunch of pills every day, so I bought the powder. I started taking it about 2 weeks before my period, and as it approached, so did my characteristic fear about how I was going to feel. But the strangest thing happened: I got closer and closer to my period, and I felt...fine. It wasn't until the day before I started bleeding that I began to feel some of the negative psychological symptoms that I typically experience, but even those seemed less heavy and less "sticky," if you will. Like it was easier than normal to get myself out of that difficult mental and emotional state.
The second test came as my period came to an end. It's not talked about much, but I find that for me (and many of my friends), some of the worst mental and emotional symptoms can happen as my period is leaving rather than when it's coming. Again, I had one day where I was just irritable and not a happy camper. I took some CBD and called it a night as soon as I could. I felt fine when I woke up in the morning, and I've felt fine since.
I honestly don't understand why Marea works, when the supplements I was taking didn't. But whatever (good) witchcraft they're doing, I'm 100% on board. I'm really hoping that these results continue, because if they do, it'll be life changing. I'm about to sign up for a membership as soon as I finish this review.
I also think it's important to note that I'm not on birth control or SSRI's.
Thank you Marea!
Have menstruated twice since starting this Elixir, and WOW! Have tried every tincture in the book, modified my diet, researched cycle syncing, and all along all I had to do was try Marea. Expensive but SO worth it- cramps barely noticeable, no headaches, my mood is way more manageable, and my energy level is up! And, always an option to delay your subscription renewal if you aren’t having the Elixir every single day. Tastes like lemonade, good hot or cold (but to be honest would drink it even if it tasted like dirt for these benefits).
This product is fantastic!!! It has certainly been a game-changer for me and the PMS ELIXIR has significantly reduced my PMDD symptoms (someone who has struggled with PMDD since her early teens). Overcoming hormonal disorders can feel extremely isolating so I am extremely grateful for the Marea team, platform, and community for it's well-rounded product and mission to empower women. There's a profound comfort in knowing that we're in a time when this type of awareness & product are available to the women of this world. THANK YOU.❤
I’ve been suffering from PMDD and peri menopause for several years. I’ve been so, so tired. This has given me more energy and hope! I tell all my friends about it. Extra bonus, no more swallowing all those vitamins. Can I get an Amen? Thank you, Marea!
I went from 10 days of intense depression and irritability that kept from my work to 2 days of mild irritability before my period. When I noticed I felt happy a week before my period this month, I was amazed.
Marea is life changing. I feel more like myself than I have in months!
The week before every period I have it’s like I tuen from Jekyll to Hyde. I have mad PMDD symptoms and at 30 I thought I would just need to accept how things are. I have tried numerous prescribed medications and at home concoctions to help my mood. With just 2 weeks of using Marea I could already see improvement in my mood during PMS. I had almost forgotten I was about to get my period because of how smooth my mood felt. While I am still waiting for further results since I just started Marea, I can’t recommend it enough. I look forward to seeing continued results with this product!
I was in a really bad way. PMDD was literally ruining my life. My first PMDD episode was when I was getting my first period after twins at 41. It was 1.5 years of hellish PMDD cycles that eventually caused my divorce, created a mean bitchy mommy and teacher, monthly rage episodes that eventually culminated into monthly suicidal ideation out of despair. All of which were very uncharacteristic prior to my diagnosis. After 2 years of living like this with little help from doctors, I saw no hope and was ready to check myself into mental health rehab just to stop PMDD from killing me and stop hurting the people around me. Then I happened to hear a PMDD podcast talking about Marea and that it wasn’t developed by someone who also had PMDD, I was intrigued! I had read all the books on PMDD and knew ALL the supplements you should take to treat PMDD but it was so much to remember with late diagnosed ADHD and peri menopause starting. I couldn’t remember what supplements to take, when or how, or how frequent. So I thought why not give it a try, I’d do anything to feel normal again. I took it as suggested (daily for month and half after dinner or bedtime snack) and it changed my monthly hell cycles to something close to a more normal PMS cycle. When I stopped taking it due to a diarrhea episode all my PMDD symptoms came back!
Now I’m back on it almost daily but I tapper back on my good days (the follicular phase) and save it for when I really need it (during the luteal phase).
It has been life changing. It’s too late for my marriage but it has given me hope for the future and that PMDD doesn’t have to kill everything good in life. Thank-you for making it easier. I just wish I could something like this in Canada and get it covered my insurance.
Bought after one of the worst PMDD months I’ve ever had in my life. Started taking immediately after my last period, and this months period snuck up on me because I didn’t have a single symptom. Not even hormonal breakouts. Literally took a pregnancy test because I was confused. The only downside is the taste. I literally gag while taking this!!! I cannot stand the taste for the life of me. Even my fiancé had a hard time swallowing it. It is pretty pricey as well. I take vitamins for another womanly issue which is shipped monthly at $25/mo, on top of this, is a lot. While it did help, I’m getting my IUD taken out soon, so I may not continue with it.
Already wrote a review about how obsessed I am with this product (it’s been a complete game changer for my monthly PMS) but HAD to write a second review because apparently it’s also an acne elixir?! My acne really cleared up after 6 weeks of taking Marea, thought it might have been a coincidence but then I was away for a month without my Marea and surpriseee my acne came back. So excited to get back on my daily Marea routine and clear this sh*t up!
I have taken this for a little over a month and have noticed my bloating gone, my energy is so much better along with my mood! My husband is happy about my mood!! I will say that I still have cramps but nothing like I use to have! My cramps were untouchable where midol wouldn't touch them and I could hardly sleep but now my cramps are very manageable and come and go during my cycle rather than hang on the whole time!! I have seen a huge change and am very excited to see if it continues to decrease my cramps the longer I am on it!
I have severe mood swings the few days before my period. It can feel like I am incapable of a positive thought. i have been using Marea for two months. This time my mood was much improved. I was able to handle my emotions and even workout before my period. It is such a relief! I'm so happy to have found Marea!
I look forward to having my elixir every morning! It tastes good and I feel like I have been less moody! I’m not even sure where I am In my cycle and I usually can tell due to all my terrible symptoms.
I’ve been taking Marea’s PMS Elixir for about a year now, and although I haven’t really seen much change in my cramps or bloating (I have very very severe PMDD with mainly physical symptoms) I’ve Definitely seen a change in my mood and energy! I used to lay on the couch and cry for days straight, now I’m able to at least function, even during my “two weeks of terror.” And I like knowing I’m getting all of my vitamins without a bunch of herbal supplements in addition (a lot of PMS supps on the market include a ton of herbs that wreak havoc on my hormones) hoping y’all start making bulk packaging (like a giant tub) to lower cost and waste from the individual wrapping in the future if possible!
I’ve been taken Marea for several weeks daily and I have definitely noticed an improvement in my overall health and regularity. The taste is good and an enjoyable addition to my daily routine. The convenience of a packet is nice to bring easily to work to take with water at lunch time. I look forward to seeing the long term benefits. I definitely feel like this past month has been an improvement in overall mood and symptoms.
I've been using Marea for almost 3 months. I used to have bad mood swings, feel down, and experience physical discomfort during PMS. My symptoms are almost completely gone now! It's crazy (pun intended)!
Marea makes me feel seen. I've often had my PMS symptoms dismissed or even made fun of in the past. With Marea, I feel like I belong to a community that understands me. On top of that, it's absolutely delicious and easy to take!
My 16yo daughter has been using Marea daily for three months. She has noticed a huge difference in her cramps, but most notably in her mood and PMDD symptoms the week before her period. We are so grateful!!
I’ve tried so many pms supplements with minimal to no results. This supplement takes my pms symptoms from about 9 days to only 2 days. I didn’t bloat, have breast tenderness, or nearly as much irritability. I felt more energized and like my “normal” self. I have also been exercising and trying my best to eat healthy. I think all of these things together have made a big difference!
I love Marea Wellness! The elixir is a tasty way to make sure I’m getting all the vitamins I need for proper hormone function with out choking down pills - ha! I love being able to drink it and actually enjoy my vitamin routine. Definitely going to recommend it to all my female clients. Bye bye PMS!
I loved this at first but it gave me indigestion and stomach aches and loose bowel movements. I haven’t been able to take it recently because of that and nausea from it, unfortunately.
Hi Ari, we are so sorry to hear that you are experiencing discomfort. We are going to reach out to you via email to see if we can provide further support.
I loved it for my pms symptoms and anxiety! I will say I noticed I started to struggle to sleep and my naturopath doctor siad it was likely from the very high levels on b6! I know lots of people like the energy boost but it made me not able to sleep. I would love a mix without so many b vitamins for energy! I am very very sensitive to caffeine so I guess I’m more sensitive to the affects of b6 too?
i started taking Marea a few months ago when a friend forwarded me an insta ad and thought if nothing else I would appreciate the branding. I did AND I realized that this was a solution i didn't know existed and am SO GLAD i do now! I was diagnosed with PMDD a few years ago and was "taking" all the recommended supplements but skipping doses often bc i hate swallowing all those pills and it was tough on my stomach. With Marea i only have to add iron and few others -- and i actually enjoy drinking it. Bonus! I feel more balanced and evened out (even in luteal hell week) and overall just lighter. Not "cured" but hopeful, which is a big win. I am so grateful for the care put into the product and the awareness marea is bringing to PMDD/PME -- I highly recommend for anyone looking for a natural way to start feeling a little better more and more each day.
I’ve been keeping it consistent maybe missed 5 days total in my first month. I have to say flo gummies helped with my cramps a lot more, since going off then I’m hurting worse 😟 going to keep trying marea for awhile because I like the taste and want it to work!
I'm in my third month of taking Marea, and for the last 2 months, my period has snuck up on me. I usually know it's coming bc I'm cranky and miserable, but lately, that's been less of a marker. That's huge! I also like that Marea creates a reason for me to have a glass of water first thing in the morning. I'm a fan!
I have noticed such a difference in my PMS symptoms after just a couple months of the PMS elixir! When I drink it consistently, my period symptoms are almost nonexistent. Last month I forgot to bring my elixir with me on vacation and had terrible cramps and headaches during my period, but this month after staying consistent I haven't had any symptoms. Truly a game-changer!
Lila, I am so excited to hear that you are noticing improvements with consistency! Cheers to healthier, happier cycles ahead!
