May is Women’s Health Month – a time to focus on health concerns specific to women, and to empower women and girls alike to make their own health a priority. In terms of reproductive health, the three key life stages of a woman are typically considered to be menstruation, pregnancy and menopause – and each of these stages comes with their own set of targeted support required to keep things like hormones, mood and physical health in check.
With May also being the time of year we celebrate motherhood with Mother’s Day, there is no better time than now to discuss these three important life cycles and the best supplements for women who want to take charge of their reproductive health.
Read on to learn more about products that focus on PMS support, pregnancy-related supplements like prenatal pills, and natural menopause relief.
PMS and Hormone Support
Futurebiotics PMSHarmony Advanced PMS Complex is a hormone support supplement that helps reduce the symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome).* These symptoms, well-known to menstruating women, can include irritability, mood swings, breast tenderness and cramping – all of which can occur at any time during or close to your period, making it uncomfortable and irritating. This hormone support supplement contains clinically studied nutrients like Chasteberry extract and BioResponse DIM, to help support healthy hormonal balance and offer nutritional PMS support.*
The 100% vegetarian female hormone support capsules also contain a range of helpful vitamins and minerals including vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and more. Adults may take four capsules daily, preferably with meals.
Futurebiotics Certified Organic Folic Acid is a folic acid vitamin crafted to help support healthy prenatal development.* Folic acid is a critical part of prenatal care, often backed by healthcare professionals for use both before and during pregnancy. A B vitamin, folic acid is found naturally in foods like lemons, beans, lentils, dark greens and fortified foods. The folic acid in this prenatal vitamin is derived from organic lemon peels. The certified organic supplement is made from lemons grown on an organic farm without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
Futurebiotics EstroComfort Menopausal Balancing Complex is designed to help manage the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause.* From night sweats to hot flashes, chills and mood swings, women experience a range of symptoms when they become menopausal – that is, once their ovaries begin to lose their ability to produce the hormones that regulate their menstrual cycle. This menopausal supplement includes Red Clover Blossom extract, SoyLife Soy Germ Extract and Black Cohosh root extract, each known to potentially keep the intensity of various menopause symptoms at a healthy level.* It also includes L-Theanine, known to help support stress response and encourage relaxation.*
These natural supplements for menopause are 100% vegetarian. They can be taken by adults twice daily with a meal.
