Hormonal health and wellness is often overlooked when we discuss ways to improve our well-being. Which is a shame, because hormones play a much more instrumental role than people realise – affecting everything from our mood and metabolism to our reproduction and cell development.
The supplements in this section help you maintain hormonal balance. Our Nascent Iodine, for instance, contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function, while A Man’s Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal blood testosterone levels.
Traditionally the role of iodine in the biological functioning of the body was focused on its ability to maintain the normal functioning of the thyroid gland. This was particularly the regulation of metabolism and the production of T3 and T4 hormones. As the understanding of iodine continued however, it is now understood that the responsibility of iodine in the body exceeds what people thought initially by quite a significant amount.
A high-quality fish oil for women, B-Hada III supplies the benefits of both pharmaceutical-grade GLA and EPA/DHA. The concentrated omega oil formulation is also enriched with organic sea buckthorn oil. Its GLA content, meanwhile, is far higher than in most other borage oil products, meaning you can take a lesser dose to achieve the same benefit. One pack contains 30 capsules.
A Man’s Zinc is a bio-available zinc supplement that provides you with a great way to support the health of your prostate, while also increasing immune function. Over the past decade, scientific research has increasingly highlighted the important role that zinc can play in the maintenance of prostate health; both in terms of protecting cellular DNA from oxidative damage, and in terms of improving the strength and stability of individual prostate cells.

The protein-rich powder is perfect for sprinkling over porridge or soup or blended into a smoothie.
