Throughout the stages of a woman’s life, her body undergoes many changes. Balancing estrogen and other hormones is essential to feeling your best no matter what stage of life you’re in now.
Women face some health challenges that affect them to a greater degree than they affect men—such as osteopenia and osteoporosis—plus conditions that affect both men and women.
Among people with chronic health conditions, women are much more likely than men to use Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
Perhaps traditional Western medicine doesn’t provide the answers they’re looking for, or perhaps they appreciate the way CAM can be tailored to their individual situations.
If you’re a woman, you probably have A LOT on your plate. About 80% of women make the health care decisions for their families.
That means you have to keep yourself as healthy as possible so you have the stamina to oversee the health of those who depend on you – including yourself!
When your digestion, immune system, and blood sugar levels function at their best, you’ll have more energy to devote to the people and pursuits that give your life meaning.
With this in mind, we’ve chosen a few supplements that we think are especially valuable for women at different life stages, and some that lay a strong foundation for general health or help balance hormones at any life stage.
We’re rooting for you!
Care for your body, then care for others with these strategic formulas
Balancing estrogen and its various forms is complex, but it’s essential for women to feel their best. Estro Balance contains highly bioavailable forms of folate, DIM, and lignans, compounds that, according to scientific studies, can optimize hormone levels. DIM (a byproduct of indole-3-carbonol) stimulates the body’s natural detoxifying enzymes, and lignans are phytoestrogens—plant-derived estrogen-like compounds that have many proven health benefits.
Bone Support Prime:
Up to 70% of the U.S. population is at risk of calcium deficiency. Especially in older women, calcium deficiency can significantly increase the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures, so getting enough calcium every day is increasingly important as we age. It’s important to take a form of calcium that your body can use to build and maintain your bone density. Bone Support Prime contains microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (the best calcium for bones) plus phosphorus, vitamin D, and ipriflavone—nutrients that work in synergy to help your body use the calcium to build bone and suppress bone resorption.
Your body goes through nine months of change during pregnancy. During that time, your nutritional requirements change, too. You need more vitamins and minerals to help your baby develop. A high quality vitamin and mineral supplement such as Prenatal helps you, the mom-to-be, sustain your own health during pregnancy and minimize some risks for baby in the womb as well as later in life. The Prenatal formula also includes 2’-FL (fucosyllactose) and vitamin B6. Clinical studies show that taking 2’-FL supplements during pregnancy may support the child’s cognitive abilities and promote a healthy gut microbiota for the mother.
