Top Supplements To Support Female Health And Hormone Balance

We often find that many women query how to support their hormones, whether this is for conception, menopause, or due to a specific symptom or condition.
We want you to be able to understand your requirements, and help you to pick the right product to meet your own individual needs. Here, we introduce you to some of our newly updated products, as well as some of the older classics that we are still fond of.
We have recently updated our multinutrient range, making them even better than they were before. They now come with improved formulations, ingredients in their most easily absorbed form, recyclable packaging, and with added botanicals for extra antioxidant support.
Replacing our FemForte Multi, this updated formula contains a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals, specifically formulated to support women of reproductive age. With high levels of biotin, zinc, and vitamins A and C for hair, skin, and nail health, as well as supporting fertility and immunity. It also contains therapeutic levels of B vitamins, including methylcobalamin and methylfolate, and vitamin B6 for hormonal support. As well as all of this, it has the further added benefit of rosemary and green tea extract, for additional antioxidant support, and a gentle, highly absorbable form of iron for energy and cognitive function.
It is our favourite and best multinutrient to support women’s needs from the pre-conceptual stage to nourish the body and support fertility, all the way through pregnancy and breastfeeding. It provides a comprehensive range of nutrients, in particular optimum levels of iron, zinc, lutein, choline and folate. We are using the biologically active form of folate – methylfolate, which is three times more easily absorbed by the body than folic acid, at the recommended dose of 400 micrograms. Improved formula with added lutein and beta carotene as source of vitamin A.
Uniquely formulated to support women both peri- and post-menopause, this new Menopause Multinutrient provides all of the key vitamins and minerals to support a healthy transition. Replacing our FemGuard, this product now also contains methylcobalamin and methylfolate, for added methylation support. As well as vitamins A and C for immune support, it contains green tea extract, lycopene, and higher levels of vitamin E for more targeted hormonal support. It also has higher levels of bone supportive nutrients which are crucial during this time, including vitamins D3 and K2, magnesium, calcium, and boron.
Replacing our FemForte Balance, our new Female Balance is a clinically effective, potent mix of botanical extracts. The improved formula now includes sage and Calcium D Glucarate. It also contains high levels of red clover, providing a natural source of Isoflavones, as well as beetroot, sage, and green tea extract for antioxidant support, and broccoli extract as a source of sulphoraphane and indole-3-carbinol. Suitable for women during and after childbearing age, and a great addition to a multinutrient.
Our classic and highly recommended Cysteine Complex is a specialist combination of amino acids, antioxidants, and plant extracts. It contains broccoli and broccoli sprouts, which are sources of micronutrients and plant chemicals, including sulphoraphanes, glucoraphanins, and indole-3-carbinol, as well as molybdenum, to support sulphite metabolism. In addition to this, it contains N-acetyl cysteine, an amino acid important for the formation of the powerful antioxidant and liver supportive compound, glutathione peroxidase, and pomegranate, a rich source of polyphenols, including ellagic acid. It is a great complex for both men and women, especially if they are exposed to high toxic load, and particularly xenoestrogens – chemicals found in plastics, tap water, cosmetics etc., which can interfere with normal hormone balance.
Another favourite, the P-5-P Complex is a combination of vitamin B6 in the form most easily absorbed by the body, pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P), with cofactors zinc, magnesium and vitamin B2. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity and normal functioning of the nervous system, whilst vitamin B2 can support energy, contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Additionally, this product contains a great dose of zinc for the maintenance of healthy hair, skin, and nails. This product can be used on its own to support hormone balance, or in addition to a multinutrient if you require higher dosages of those nutrients.
Our newly reformulated Saw Palmetto Complex provides a synergistic blend of botanicals, including saw palmetto, with zinc, lycopene, l-arginine, l-carnitine, panax ginseng, and nettle root. Saw palmetto may be particularly useful for men's health, but can also be used to support women’s health if they need to support their testosterone levels. With added antioxidant support from lycopene, nettle root, and zinc, which contributes to normal fertility, reproduction and the maintenance of normal testosterone levels. A great addition alongside both female multinutrients, depending on your needs.
Our Mega GLA Complex provides a high dose of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an important omega-6 fatty acid, derived from borage oil (also known as starflower). GLA contributes to the maintenance of the normal structure, elasticity and appearance of the skin. It also contains vitamin E for additional antioxidant support. It provides 180mg of GLA per one capsule. You can take 1 capsule for daily support, or 2-3 if you’d like a higher dose.
