What does Total Balance Women's Premium do that the standard Total Balance Women's version does not?
It does a lot more. Although it contains the same number and amount of female-specific nutrients it goes much further in supporting all the organs and systems, which in turn provides support against the main causes of aging and helping in the prevention of degenerative conditions.
To illustrate that better the Premium version contains about three times the amount of SAMe and Resveratrol, both important nutrients. It includes Phosphatidyl L-Serine which targets the brain. There are an additional 7 amino acids included, as well as an immunity blend of another five nutrients and additional anthocyanins for eye health.
What is the recommended dosage for Total Balance Women's Premium?
The daily dose is seven tablets a day. This can be split into two or more doses a day but it is still OK to take the full dose in one time. It can be taken with or without food. As the tablets are enteric coated there is no risk of an upset stomach
Why can't you produce a higher potency tablet so that it isn't necessary to take seven tablets per day?
The tablet is already at the highest possible level of potency. The reason why the daily dose rate is so high is that it is not physically possible to get the number of nutrients that your organs and systems need in a lesser number of tablets.
We use the most potent forms of nutrients to get the maximum ‘punch’ per milligram but in order to achieve the objectives for this supplement and those of our customers, we simply cannot reduce the number of tablets.
We accept it can in inconvenient for some people but having the ability to take them all at once without the need for food helps offset that inconvenience.
What if I don't want to take the recommended daily dose?
We strongly recommend that all of our customers take the recommended daily dose whenever possible, as this is required to gain the maximum benefits that we say may be expected from our supplements. If you are not in a position to invest the amount needed to enable you to take the full dose you are better to switch to the Standard version which is about half the cost.
This is because the levels of the vitamin and mineral component in each of the Total Balance range is based on the full daily intake of seven tablets, so if you take less than you would not be getting the optimal dose of Vitamins and minerals
What is the function of the enteric coating on the Total Balance tablets?
The enteric coating on the Total Balance tablets protects some of the sensitive ingredients, such as SAMe, from being be destroyed by the stomach acid. The enteric coating ensures the tablets do not begin dissolving until they enter the small intestine, where the best possible absorption can occur.
Can I take Total Balance Women’s Premium if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
There is some debate with Doctors on this issue. Some believe it is good, others don’t. We suggest erring on the side of caution and discontinue after the first trimester and switch to a specific prenatal supplement. The only product we recommend during this time is our Omega 3/DHA fish oil, which has valuable properties to support both the health of the mother and baby.
Fish oil is highly recommended by many medical professionals during pregnancy and breastfeeding to help support infant brain development, as well as systemic organ growth. It can also play a valuable role in supporting the post-natal mood and brain function of the mother. As the baby draws from the mother's precious stores of DHA, they can easily become depleted, therefore supporting levels with a supplement such as Omega 3/DHA fish oil is very wise.
Is it possible that I could feel any negative effects after I start taking Total Balance Women’s Premium?
It is possible but unlikely. Some people may experience mild detox symptoms such as nausea, or headaches in the first few days of starting Total Balance products. The likelihood of experiencing these effects will depend on your health status, as well as dietary and lifestyle factors. Total Balance Women’s Premium helps to flush toxins which may accumulate in the body due to a diet high in sugar, caffeine, alcohol, as well as smoking or exposure to environmental toxins. If you consume a less than optimal diet or are exposed to other toxins in your daily life you may well experience some mild detox symptoms.
These symptoms should only last for the first few days, during which time we suggest drinking lots of water.
If the symptoms do not pass after one week we suggest reducing the dose by half. Following which, you may then increase the dose again.
Will Total Balance Women's Premium help to lessen my menopausal/PMS symptoms?
Total Balance Women's Premium contains a comprehensive female hormone support blend including ingredients such as Dong Quai, Damiana Leaf Extract and Sarsaparilla Root Extract which may help to address the symptoms experienced during menopause and also assist those women suffering from PMS. These ingredients help regulate hormone levels to minimize hot flushes, insomnia, headaches and mood changes.
Will Total Balance Women’s Premium interfere with prescription medications?
As with all supplements, caution must be taken if you are on medications of any sort. Total Balance Women’s Premium contains ingredients like Gingko Biloba, which help thin the blood, so if you are on blood thinning medication this has to be taken into account. It contains a small amount of Vitamin K which may affect blood clotting as well; if you are taking Coumadin / Warfarin please advise your doctor in case your medication needs to be adjusted.
Very rarely there is an issue although it is always a good idea to allow a 2 or 3 hour gap between taking Total Balance Women’s Premium and your medication.
Nonetheless, we always suggest checking with your doctor before starting this product.
What are the best products to combine with Total Balance Women’s Premium?
We recommend three key foundational products to all of our customers to help support overall health; these are one of the Total Balance range, as well as one of the Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil products, plus Kiwi-Klenz.
