Menstrual Relief ...From Discovery to Product Development

Dr. Susan Thys-Jacobs is a practicing endocrinologist and leading expert in Premenstrual
Syndrome (PMS) research. For over 20 years, she has worked passionately and extensively
to solve this pressing medical problem.  She has consistently been committed to proving
that women need not suffer with monthly menstrual symptoms.

In the early 1980s, she noticed the similarities between menstrual cycle symptoms
and those symptoms exhibited by people with dramatic calcium deficiency. She was
lucky. New methods for testing vitamin and mineral levels in the blood had just been
introduced which allowed her to test her theory – that menstrual cycle symptoms
were simply a nutrient deficiency in the body.

Her early investigations were positive and her discovery generated immediate
interest from large pharmaceutical companies. In partnership with one of those
companies, Dr. Thys-Jacobs conducted the largest ever study of the effect of calcium
on PMS. It demonstrated conclusively that calcium can indeed relieve PMS.

Replacing the calcium alone reduces PMS symptoms by 50%. Additional studies have since shown that replenishing the body’s vitamin D at the same time (which helps the body absorb calcium) reduces symptoms by 90-100%.

After years of continued research, Dr. Thys-Jacobs introduced Premcal in 2004 as the solution to painful PMS symptoms.  She continued, however, to explore ways to obtain even better results.

Finally in 2013, she developed and launched a new and improved product, EZY Period, as the perfect natural solution to an age old dilemma.

“I’ve been treating menstrual cycle symptoms for many years, and it’s great to finally be able to offer EZY Period as the simple solution for the millions of women who think that suffering is a normal part of their monthly cycle,” said Dr. Thys-Jacobs.  “I’ve helped hundreds of women see life-changing results, but that’s not enough – I’ll know that we have succeeded when all women don’t even realize that they are getting their period.”

Today, Dr. Susan Thys-Jacobs serves as the Executive Vice President and Scientific Advisor to EZY Period and Premcal.
