How do I use for best results?
The herbs are meant to be taken in the 5-7 days leading up to your cycle, twice per day, 6 full squeezes of the dropper. If your cycle starts without warning, you can still take the herbs! They are most effective when you are able to get ahead of the symptoms, but they still work when you are already experiencing pain/PMS- you just may need to increase your dosage frequency to 3-4x/ day. It is important to finish the entire bottle with each cycle in order to see the most impactful and long-lasting results.
Can I take too much of the herbs?
While the herbs are safe in the prescribed dose, there is always a point of diminishing return with supplements, known as the Tolerable Upper Intake Level. Please do not exceed 40 mL/day (2/3rds of the bottle).
What if my periods are irregular?
Having an irregular cycle can make judging when to take the herbs a bit of a guessing game, but you can start taking them at any sign that your cycle is coming (maybe mood swings, breast tenderness, cramping, etc). You then take them twice per day, 6 full squeezes of the dropper. If your cycle starts without warning, you can still take the herbs! They are most effective when you are able to get ahead of the symptoms, but they still work when you are already experiencing pain/PMS- you just may need to increase your dosage frequency to 3-4x/ day.
What if my period comes late?
If you’ve finished your herbs and your period hasn’t come, the herbs will still have prepared your body for the coming menstruation. Hang tight! If your period is more than 1-1.5 weeks delayed, you may need to order more Cycle Balancer for maximum effectiveness.
What if my period comes early?
If your period comes early, please continue to take your Cycle Balance formula until you have used the entire bottle (and especially while you are still experiencing any cycle-related symptoms). The herbs have been shown to help to relieve your symptoms in the current cycle and also to balance your hormones in preparation for the month to come. We developed the formula strength to be used in its entirety with each cycle, so it is important to use the whole bottle for maximum efficacy and satisfaction.
What if I forget to take a dose or forget to start the herbs one week before my period comes?
That’s ok! We have you take the herbs ahead of menstruation because some of the herbs take time to build up in your body for maximum effectiveness. However, some of the herbs are designed to be effective the moment you start taking them so you will see benefits no matter when you start taking them!
What if my symptoms are more sporadic and don’t come every month?
The herbs are very safe and can act preventively. Many also find that taking the Cycle Balancer allows them to have an easier cycle in general, suffering less from other symptoms such as mood swings and fatigue. If you choose, the Cycle Balancer can be taken only when symptoms occur—however, it is more effective to get ahead of them by taking the Cycle Balancer before symptoms begin every month.
