A total of 12 active ingredients that support the female hormonal balance
A+ Female Balance contains well-selected nutrients that support the female hormonal balance. It is an innovative dietary supplement with a total of 12 active ingredients of, among other things , gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from borage oil and blackcurrant seed oil , yam root , licorice root and a complex of important B vitamins.
Yam has a long history as a medicinal plant among South American Indians and the plant's roots and tubers contain an interesting substance called diosgenin. Diosgenin contains precursors to what the researchers call the "mother hormone" DHEA, which can be converted into several hormones in the body, including our sex hormones. Yam root is also one of the plants that naturally contains the highest concentration of phytonutrients, a substance that is needed for phytoestrogens to work optimally in the body [ 2 , 3 ] .
Licorice root many know only for its use in licorice candies, but not many know that it has traditionally been used specifically by women for its positive properties. However, A+ has captured this in this innovative product. Licorice root contains, among other things, so-called isoflavones which are a subgroup of phytoestrogens and which are found naturally in certain plants and which have estrogen-like effects [ 4 , 5 ] .
B vitamins needed for a wide range of different functions in the body. Among other things, they are needed for the body's metabolism, immune system, nervous system and cell division to function normally, but skin, hair and nails are also dependent on B vitamins [ 1 ] . They are also needed for the body to produce serotonin (the neurotransmitter that makes us feel well-being and joy), reduce stress, promote muscle relaxation and the feeling of calm [ 6 ] . The B vitamins are also very important for our hormone production and for the hormones in the body to function optimally. Many people with PMS problems or other hormonal imbalances have therefore been shown to have an extra large need for B vitamins.
Among other things contributes Vitamin B6 to regulate hormonal activity and to reduce fatigue and exhaustion [ 1 ] .
Biotin contributes to a normal energy-giving metabolism and to a normally functioning nervous system [ 1 ] .
Borage oil and blackcurrant seed oil are both rich in the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) . GLA has been shown in clinical studies to relieve women's pain in connection with PMS [ 7 , 8 ] .
