Nutritional Support for every stage of a woman’s life …

Whether you are a mom or a career woman or both, most women face health challenges related to unbalanced and fluctuating hormones, which then lead to PMS and mood swings along with health issues.  Plus demanding schedules often require enormous amounts of energy and stamina. For proactive/preventative steps, a few suggestions: (1) Eat real food – veggies, complex fruits, and healthy protein (but get sugars/carbs out); (2) Drink lots of water; (3) Make time for exercise; (4) Increase relaxing activities; (5) Reduce stress; (6) Reduce toxins that can have estrogen effects on the body.  In addition, the following nutrients offer nutritional support for women in these areas.
