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 most recommended products when it comes to female hormones, fertility, pregnancy, and menopause.


Multinutrients:

Our updated multinutrient range is now even better than before. They come with improved formulations, ingredients in their most easily absorbed form, recyclable packaging, and with added botanicals for extra antioxidant support.

Methyl Multinutrient - for all-round support, including methylation and hormone balance

This formula contains a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals to support the vital process of methylation and many other key aspects of health such as mental health and wellbeing, energy, hormone balance, fertility, detoxification, immunity, and skin health. Providing highly therapeutic nutrient dosages that are easily absorbed and used by the body, including methylfolate and methyl B12, to bring you a powerful and superior multinutrient.

Suitable for women during childbearing years as well as during and after menopause, especially for those with more active lifestyles or looking to keep up with the demanding pace of life.

Methyl Pregnancy Multinutrient - for conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding

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.

Complexes:

We also have a great range of cleverly formulated complexes, which can be taken in alongside a multinutrient, for more personalised, and targeted support.

Female Balance – botanical complex for women for targeted support

Female Balance is a clinically effective, potent mix of botanical extracts, specifically designed for women. It includes Calcium D Glucarate, 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.

Cysteine Complex – botanical, nutrient and antioxidant complex for men and women

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.

P-5-P Complex – nutrient complex for 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.
