A Future of Better Periods



Taboos about menstruation are about as old as menstruation itself, but in the 21st century, it's time for all that to change. Over 80% of women suffer from uncomfortable symptoms before and during their periods. Until now, the response from the medical community, and society as a whole, has been "Well, that's just part of being a woman, deal with it." 

Viv knows a better way. After years of research, and working with our clinical patients, we developed an effective, all natural line of products to make better periods. Period. We want to start a new conversation about periods. Change is possible. Better periods are possible. We envision a world without period shame, anxiety, and suffering.

It took us nearly 20 years, but after hundreds of hours of research, thousands of clinical patients, and a whole ton of blood, sweat, and tampons, but we've built the perfect period supplements. Whatever Aunt Flo throws at ya — cramps, pms, breast tenderness, cravings, digestive problems, headaches, fatigue — we got your back.

All natural, ultra easy,
all better.

Just all natural, effective period relief. No biggie.

Our story

Viv Wellness was founded with a simple mission: Better Periods. Period. We were sick and tired of doctors telling women that PMS and cramps were just par for the course and there wasn't anything they could do about it expect pop some drugs. We brought together a team of both natural and traditional women's health experts  with 20+ years of clinical experience and told them to fix it. Viv has combined years of clinical experience with the best peer reviewed medical research to develop our effective, safe, and all natural formulas.
