This week on the blog we have been looking at the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) and women hormone balance. We have seen that the OCP has broad effects across women’s body systems, with nutrient levels being the main consequence.

We recommend additional 
B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, manganese, magnesium, zinc, vitamin E and selenium, on top of your normal daily requirements for hormone support while on the OCP. 

We have put together this Simple Chocolate Smoothie recipe that is 
high in magnesium to support boosting your magnesium status. Magnesium deficiency or low magnesium status is associated with many things; anything from unstable mood to muscle tension. This is because magnesium controls over three hundred enzymes within your body.

Cacao is a nutritional powerhouse offering a rich source of 
magnesium, antioxidants and potassium. Magnesium has been shown to reduce PMS symptoms such as anxiety, irritability and water retention. Increase the magnesium in this smoothie by choosing to add almond butter.

This smoothie also contains 
BePure EstroClear, an active daily detoxifier, scientifically formulated to support you in living with healthier, balanced hormones. BePure EstroClear if full of powerful natural ingredients that support up-regulating the detoxification system through the second phase of the liver.
