I am nearly 80 years of age and glad I found something that works, when my Dr found that my 'numbers' were in the range of a normal thyroid.

I work with a Hormone Wellness Dr. and she sells her own supplements. When I began taking the Essential Nutrients she was so impressed she suggested I continue with them.

The product really works...It took a couple of weeks to feel the difference but WOW it certainly helps...One draw back though on the capsules...they can get stuck if you don't have enough fluid...wish they could be made smaller

All women starting to deal with hormonal issues should be on a multivitamin. It is crucial. You will find this product safe, natural and no aftertaste. I do and have recommended this website and have tried most of the product. The guidance by phone is amazing and the articles are very informative. If you have questions, like I did, call. I have never been disappointed with the expert by phone or the product. Thank you for being available for us and to us.
