Why Use Hormone Balance? 

Throughout every menstrual cycle, females experience a variety of hormonal changes that can impact emotional and physical health.  

For women with PMS, falling levels of estrogen during the second half of their cycle can cause a drop in ‘the happy hormone’ serotonin. This, along with changes in progesterone levels can bring on a variety of symptoms including mood swings, depression, bloating and more. For women with PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome, raised levels of testosterone can cause greater hormonal imbalances throughout each month.  

Nutrition and diet can also play a part in these hormonal changes and this is where supplements can help. Recent studies have indicated that zinc supplementation has a positive effect on PCOS symptoms, including insulin resistance and lipid balance. (6) In addition, research on vitamin B6 deficiency suggests that this nutrient can improve mood and general emotional health during episodes of PMS. 7 

Meeting your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals is essential to healthy hormone production. Myvitamins Hormone Balance is a simple, vegetarian-friendly way to support your wellbeing from within every single day.
