This stuff is the shit. If you're not interested in taking OTC pain medication to ease your period pains, cramp bark works wonders, you can barely taste it when taking a shot of it AND it works really fast. I can safetly say it works faster than any medication I've taken.
You can apparently buy capsules of the stuff, which I guess works just as well from what I hear. It just takes a little longer to digest.
I have this stuff: Click!
It is wonderful. You drop about 1/2 tsp in a shot glass of water and down it. It kind of has a very, very vague taste of liquorice. From what I understand, cramp bark qualms the uterus' contractions when it is shedding the uterine lining, so it's some pretty wonderful stuff. I would recommend this to anyone that doesn't like taking pain medication (I didn't). Yes!
