Ever wondered what would men do if they had periods? Probably brag about the size of their tampons!
Call it chums, periods, that Time of the Month or Visit from Aunt Flo. PMS blues, freaky cramps, insane mood swings, ovary-acting, and outlandish food cravings are the classic signs of this crimson tide.
Not just periods, but the constant turmoil with hormonal imbalance is what most women deal with. Facial hair, unnatural weight gain, muscle weakness are some problems that millions of women are fighting on the daily - all while pasting an ever bright smile on their faces.

Woman Lying on Couch

Imagine waking up one morning and saying hello to the acne that randomly decided to visit you. Nobody wants to deal with that and we’re extremely positive that the irregularity with which our hormones play games with us, without any warning, makes it all the more worse. But hey, here we are and we don’t do where to go next! Or do we? 
Well, at Akiva, we aim to celebrate this facet of womanhood.
A woman’s body endures many changes all through her life and unfortunately, women are often hushed when they speak about their menstrual and reproductive problems. With changing times, it becomes necessary to eradicate such taboos and help women overcome their health issues, because a healthy woman is the base of a healthy family and she needs her dose of herbal health drinks to stay healthy.

Inspired by Ayurveda and infused with the richness of Ashoka, Shatavari, Acai Berry, and Beetroot, this shot is an ideal remedy for a woman’s holistic health.

Why Ashoka?

Often titled as a woman’s best friend, Ashoka means without sorrow in Sanskrit and just like its name, the herb is known to eliminate the pain and sorrows of a woman by giving her excellent and nourishing health.
Saraca Indica, the vital ingredient found in the bark of Ashoka trees is highly beneficial in treating heavy menstrual periods, uterine bleeding, hormonal imbalance, and maintaining a healthy reproductive system.

Why Shatavari?

Do you know that shat means hundred and vari means husband?
Interestingly, Shatavari means she who has a hundred husbands, which is an apt nickname for a herb that rejuvenates fertility, regulates the menstrual cycle and has exceptional beauty-enhancing properties. It’s also famous for enhancing libido in women and increasing milk flow in breastfeeding mothers.

Why Acai Berry?

Rich in antioxidants, calcium, and iron, Acai berries help to strengthen the uterus lining so that you feel less pain when it starts to contract during your periods.

Why Beetroot?

Beetroot is a powerhouse of iron that speedily depletes in your body when you bleed. It is a great source of calcium, folic acid, beta-carotene, and antioxidants that promote blood flow to the uterus and relieve cramps.
The goodness of these superfoods packed in one vial is the ultimate remedy to a happy and carefree period. Also have some best supplements to boost immune system and you are sorted.

So Ladies, ease your PMSing, cramps, hanger pangs (hungry + angry) with our fabulous shots. Women’s Wellness needs to be paid more attention to, spoken more about and more and more solutions need to be created to ensure that their glorious lives are celebrated and here we are, doing just that.
