Top supplements to support female health
Posted in: Articles

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 multinutrient range is based on high potency, comprehensive formulations, which contain ingredients in their most easily absorbed form, and with added botanicals for extra antioxidant support.

 

Female Multinutrient - for women’s health and hormone balance during childbearing years. 

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. 

 

 

 

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. It also contains lutein, an important antioxidant and pigment, and beta carotene as source of vitamin A.  

 

Menopause Multinutrient - for women’s health and hormone balance during and after menopause. 

 

Menopause Multinutrient is an advanced multivitamin for women’s health during and after menopause, containing vitamin B6 to support female hormones, with magnesium, zinc, green tea and, lycopene.

Complexes:

We also have a great range of cleverly formulated complexes, which can be taken 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 broccoli sprout as a source of sulphoraphane, red clover, providing a natural source of Isoflavones, as well as beetroot, sage, and green tea extract for antioxidant support, and indole-3-carbinol. Suitable for women during and after childbearing age, and a great addition to a multinutrient. 

 

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, 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. 

 

Saw Palmetto Complex – for healthy testosterone levels 

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. 

 

Mega GLA  - for healthy skin 

Our Mega GLA  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.
