formerly NUBalance™  For Women

… support hormone levels and PMS symptoms.†

– With BioResponse DIM®

PMS Support – Hormone Support for Women is a combination of specific nutrients, including BioResponse DIM® – a natural component derived from indole-3-carbinole and cruciferous vegetables, Chaste Berry extract, magnesium and B vitamins, specially formulated for address the special needs of pre and post-menopausal, healthy women.

Research shows pre and post-menopausal symptoms are associated with high estrogen and low progesterone levels in the luteal phase.

FUNCTIONS

Diindolylmethane (DIM) is one molecule known for the supportive role it plays in stimulating natural detoxification enzymes and supporting normal hormone metabolism – resulting in healthy estrogen levels, help free up testosterone from SHBG without increasing total testosterone levels and aid absorption from our intestinal tract.

Chaste berry extract, or Vitex agnus-castus, is a plant extract with active constituents from the fruit of the Chaste tree that play a role in hormone and neurotransmitter activity and supported PMS symptoms in some women.† PMS symptoms with compounds that have been shown to suppress the release of prolactin.†

Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that is involved in many cellular pathways and neuromuscular activities which effect PMS.

Magnesium may support cramping and bloating.†

B vitamins, especially vitamin B-6, support symptoms of PMS, especially mood and behavioral symptoms.†

Folate, supplied as the bioavailable methylfolate in NUBalance™, is recommended while taking oral contraceptives due to folate interactions.

Iron supplementation is helpful in menstruating women to support the maintenance of healthy iron stores. Ferronyl® is a carbonyl form of iron that is bioavailable and well tolerated.
