Life Choice – Balanced Female
Throughout history, women have been regarded as complex creatures indeed, and that complexity extends to their body chemistry, too. Life Choice Balanced Female is a special formulation intended to help women ensure the inner balance that results in overall feelings of running like a well-oiled machine. We have combined the finest ingredients, from the traditional to the modern, in a synergistic formula with one goal in mind: to balance the female body for its optimal sense of well-being.
This nutrient-rich formula includes the following:
L-Arginine: Helps support a modest improvement in exercise capacity in individuals with stable cardiovascular disease. Studies suggest that sexual maturity may be delayed by its deficiency. Arginine is found in seminal fluid, and is also involved in the functioning of a variety of enzymes and hormones.
Black Cohosh: This herb is widely relied upon for relief of hot flashes, menstrual cramps, and morning sickness. It is also useful in cardiovascular and circulatory disorders.
Dong Quai: This ancient Chinese secret increases the effects of ovarian and testicular hormones, and is useful in relieving hot flashes, menopausal symptoms, PMS, and vaginal dryness.

It is an energy tonic, a remedy for sexual and hormonal problems, and is known as ‘a sexuality tonic”. Soy Isoflavone non-GMO: Life Choices non-GMO Soy Isoflavones are plant-derived compounds which mimic estrogen activity, making them popular as a natural way to reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, and for other health benefits.
Licorice root: Well-known for its multiple benefits, licorice root promotes adrenal gland function, and creates estrogen- and progesterone-like effects, as well as improving the quality of mucus, and lengthening intestinal cell life.
Red Clover: The health benefits of red clover extend especially to women undergoing menopause, in terms of alleviating symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings. It is also used as a blood and liver purifier and is a traditional treatment for asthma, pertussis, cancer, and gout. Today red clover is often used as an alternative hormone replacement therapy, for high cholesterol, and the prevention of osteoporosis. Despite a lack of high-quality human studies supporting the use of this herb for any medical condition, red clover remains a popular supplement.
Methylcobalamin (B-12): Methylcobalamin is a co-enzyme, which is a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B-12. Reports suggest that it helps reduce neurotoxicity and excess glutamate levels, resulting in the lessening of fatigue, stabilization of mood, and improvement of memory.
Folic Acid: Widely regarded as a brain food, folic acid helps with depression and anxiety. Women taking oral contraceptives should be aware that these medications may increase the need for folic acid. Supplementation is known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken daily, both prior to becoming pregnant and during early pregnancy. Folic acid helps to form red blood cells and prevents folate deficiency.
Rosemary Leaf: In herbal medicine rosemary is reported to help improve memory, relieve muscle pain and stimulate the circulatory and nervous systems. Useful for stimulating the immune system and improving digestion, rosemary leaf contains anti-inflammatory compounds, and is traditionally used to help reduce the severity of asthma attacks and relieving bronchial congestion.
Muira Puama Bark: Bearing the self-explanatory nickname of potency wood, the bark of this small tree from the Brazilian Amazon is suggested for use in improving the psychological and physical aspects of libido and sexual function in both men and women, as well as for menstrual cramps and PMS.

Those having menstrual irregularities can take red raspberry tea to help regulate their menstrual cycle, and reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

It is known for its effectiveness in the treatment of menstrual disorders, PMS, menopausal symptoms such as breast tenderness, hot flashes and mood swings, infertility, and decreased milk production in lactating women.
False Unicorn Root: A traditional herbal remedy used by Native American women to deter miscarriage, false unicorn root is still widely used to treat a variety of problems unique to the female reproductive system.
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (B-6): The active form of Vitamin B-6, P5P is involved in more bodily functions than any other single nutrient, and affects both our physical and mental health. P5P is recommended for many purposes, and is of special value to women. It is used in herbal medicine to help relieve premenstrual symptoms, and give relief from menopausal symptoms and menstrual pain. It acts as a calmative to ease nervous tension and help the body to handle stress. It helps soothe muscle and joint pain associated with rheumatic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and/or fibrositis, as well as pain of neuralgia, such as sciatica. And a minimum of 6 months supplementation with P5P will help to reduce loss of bone mineral density (BMD) in post-menopausal women, when combined with adequate amounts of both calcium and Vitamin D.
