Women's Health

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

Essential Multi with Iron:
 
More energy, sharper brain function, better mood, stronger immune system, better digestion. These are reasons to add a multivitamin supplement to your health regimen, and for most women of childbearing age, that supplement should include iron. Essential Multi with Iron takes ordinary multivitamin supplements to the next level by using pharmaceutical grade nutrients in bioavailable forms. It features a proprietary blend of highly potent herbal extracts rarely found in the diet. It’s a great way to make sure you’ve established a solid foundation for vibrant health.

Estro Balance:

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.

Dynamic Hormone Balance:
 
Proper estrogen balance is key for healthy mood, well-being, energy levels, and many bodily functions. When estrogen is too low or too high, a variety of health issues can manifest. Dynamic Hormone Balance is a protein drink powder specially formulated with evidence-based ingredients that support healthy estrogen balance and endocrine function. Naturally flavored without gluten, added sugar, or artificial sweeteners, this formula provides herbal extracts, bioactive micronutrients, lignans, isoflavones, and antioxidants that have been shown in clinical settings to help balance estrogen levels.
Menopause Support:
 
Following the reproductive years, women’s bodies change dramatically, with alterations in various body parts from blood vessels to the brain. Mood, memory, sleep, and energy can all be affected. Keeping hormones balanced is as important during this life phase as it ever was. This formula uses five herbs—including ashwagandha and black cohosh root—that can be especially beneficial in supporting hormone balance, blood vessels, stress response, moods, and cognition.
Liposomal DHEA:
 
DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a natural hormone produced by the adrenal gland. Since peak production of this hormone occurs between the ages of 20 and 24, it’s sometimes called the “youth hormone.” It’s used by the body to make sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone. Taking a DHEA supplement can help you maintain your vitality as you age so you can continue to enjoy an active lifestyle. The liposomal spray formula allows your body to absorb the ingredients while avoiding the digestive tract.

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.

Osteo Renew:
 
Bone health is a major concern for postmenopausal women because declining estrogen levels can cause increased pro-inflammatory cytokines which in turn lead to thinner bones. Osteo Renew supports healthy bone metabolism and supports healthy inflammatory markers in the body with a blend of vitamin D, Vitamin K1, xanthohumol from hops extract, and berberine. Xanthohumol contains phytoestrogen compounds with estrogen-like activities on bone metabolism. Xanthohumol has been shown to protect bones by preventing the breakdown of bones during menopause. Berberine is a powerful anti-inflammatory that interferes with inflammation that thins bones.

Prenatal:

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.
