American healthcare company Nannocare has launched a pad infused with technology that naturally relieves menstrual cramps.
The company believes the pads and pantyliners offer women a holistic alternative to drugs and medication. Though its trademarked Nannogenic technology is new to American consumers, aspects of it have been widely practiced by Eastern medical practitioners for hundreds of years.
A recent study by YouGov found 42 per cent of women experience pain during their monthly menstrual cycle which is so debilitating that it regularly interferes with their ability to do work.
Nannocare says it set out to present women with a safe alternative to drugs or medication which may aid in naturally relieving menstrual discomfort. Nannocare’s proprietary NannoPad contains Nannogenic technology which is engineered using natural fibres containing organically occurring earth elements broken into nanno particles. These nanno particles naturally and safely work with the body to emit a molecular vibrational energy which may increase blood flow. Through increasing microcirculation within the body, more than 75 per cent of women tested via the company’s in-house study found NannoPad relieved pain from menstrual cramps.
The study, of 244 women using the pads over two months found that the Nannogenic technology also purifies the area around the pad from bacteria which has been proven to decrease odour.
The NannoPad products are made from hypoallergenic, ultra-absorbent 100 per cent-certified organic cotton. Nannocare’s product range has been tested in house through surveying the results of 244 participants that used the NannoPad over a 2-month time period. All Nannocare products are produced by an accredited FDA approved manufacturer and have been tested for safety by university labs.
Nannocare says that to achieve optimum results, women should begin using the NannoPad system in the week leading up to their period.
NannoPad Pantyliners, for women experiencing their lightest flow, are sold in 18-unit packs for US$7. NannoPad Regulars, for mid-range flow, are sold in 20-unit packs for $12, while NannoPad Supers, for those experiencing a heavy flow, are sold in 20-unit packs for $14. The NannoPad multi-pack, containing 18 pantyliners, 12 regular pads and six super pads, are sold at $19.
Nannocare products can be purchased online through the company’s website and users can opt in to Nannocare’s customisable monthly subscription service.
