Does lunapatch cause allergic reactions?

How does it work?
It’s simple. Lunapatch contains elemental magnesium which corrodes and gives off solvated electrons which neutralize free radicals. By doing so, this targets a source of pain and reduces pain in a localized area. In studies women go into oxidative stress for 2/3 of their menstrual cycle. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23915183 https://www.researchgate.net/publication/255691692_Analysis_of_oxidative_stress_during_the_menstrual_cycle
