Why did the BalanceRX Formulation Change?


Why did the BalanceRX formulation change?

Short Answer:

We recently re-formulated BalanceRX to make it a more effective supplement with new ingredients to support MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING in addition to its original intention of supporting hormone balance. 

The original BalanceRX formula was developed in 2019. Our philosophy at the time was to have a very wide ingredient base and include as many research-backed ingredients as possible into one supplement to support women’s hormonal health.

Although that original guiding philosophy was good, we’ve advanced the formula and made it even more focused by increasing the dose of the most effective ingredients and eliminating many of the smaller players to focus the formula.

Longer Answer:

Here’s a summary of the changes:

  • In total, we’ve reduced herbs contained in BalanceRX from 9 to 6 (current total). 
  • We’ve reduced capsule size from 4 caps (old formula) to 3 caps (new formula).
  • With this new focused formula, we’ve been able to increase the amount of the most effective ingredients (E.g. Vitex agnus is the safest, most effective hormone balancing herb in BalanceRX; with this new formula, we increased the amount of Vitex by an additional 50mg). 
  • In the new BalanceRX formula, we added the following to support MENTAL HEALTH and ANXIETY REDUCTION: L-Theanine, Magnesium, Chamomile, Lemon Balm Extract – all of these supplements safely provide a natural calming effect on the brain & body, balance key neurotransmitters, reduce anxiety, and support mental wellbeing which is essential to good health.
  • By removing some of the less effective ingredients, we were able to make space for some exciting new ingredients like Rhubarb Root, which is research proven to reduce hot flashes and improve peri/menopausal symptoms at a very low dose… and Saffron Extract, which is a natural, gentle appetite regulator, has great anti-inflammatory effects, and has been research shown to reduce PMS symptoms such as irritability, headaches, cravings, and pain.
  • We removed herbs like St. John’s Wort Extract – which although useful in some cases for increasing serotonin – also interacts with many prescription medications making it unsuitable for many women.
  • We also added a new, powerful form of calcium called Calcium D-Glucarate that not only promotes strong bones but actually improves estrogen metabolism for women 40+. This was a very elegant change in the formula, as the previous formula had a lower dose of Calcium phosphate, which is a type of calcium that does not have these hormone-benefitting properties.
  • We got rid of the B-complex, folate, B12, Vitamin E, and Vitamin D as most women get all of these vitamins already from food and other supplements. We did not want BalanceRX to have redundancy with other products you may be taking. All of these vitamins are also included inside our Fit Mother Super Fuel.
  • We added some Vitamin C as it works synergistically with the blend and has broad effects on immune function, collagen production, and stress-reduction.

We are excited about these new changes! This is, by far, the best version of BalanceRX to date. This new formula packs all the hormone-balancing power as the old formula – with the added benefits for MENTAL WELLBEING & STRESS REDUCTION. 

The mind and body as completely interconnected, so we want this BalanceRX product to support women’s wellbeing on all levels.
