Women's Health Combo

Staying well is becoming more of a challenge, and it’s hard to know how to prioritize the support and nutrition you provide your body. Our Women’s Health Combo comes complete to supply your body with what it needs every day. That includes support and fuel for immune system health, strong digestive function and hormonal balance. Whether you’re fighting symptoms or just trying to help ensure health and resilience, this powerful combination is formulated specifically for women according to the latest scientific research.

What you get with the Combo:

Super Biotic

Our exclusive probiotic formula reduces and prevents digestive symptoms and more by working to keep your intestinal flora balanced. Our powerful blend of eight different “friendly” microorganisms supplies an incredible 15 billion organisms per dose to calm specific symptoms, including bloating, gas and diarrhea. A large group of recent scientific studies strongly suggests that probiotics can also have positive effects for excess weight loss, mood and allergies.

Super Biotic can help you by:

  • Supporting healthy digestion and promoting regularity.
  • Promoting improvement in people with lactose intolerance.
  • Helping maintain urinary tract health.
  • Reducing bloating and gas.
  • Boosting the body’s natural immune function.

Essential Nutrients

Doctor-formulated just for women to provide pure, high quality supplemental nutrition with optimal absorption and bioavailability, our Essential Nutrients contains 30 vitamins, minerals, and advanced nutrients in superior forms. This formula works to support healthy metabolism, hormonal balance and overall wellness. Taken daily, Essential Nutrients offers excellent support and nutrition for all women.

Essential Nutrients includes:

  • The raw materials our body needs every day for healthy function.
  • Quatrefolic®, a patented, natural form of 5-MTHF, folate’s most usable and active form.
  • Minerals and trace elements in their safest and most bioavailable forms.
  • The foundational ingredients needed to support your endocrine, immune and other vital sytstems.


Our Omega-3s are molecularly distilled to concentrate the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3s provide benefits for the immune system, heart, joints, eyes, skin and emotional well-being, and encourage the production of chemicals that help control inflammation.

Omega-3s can help you by:

  • Working to reduce triglycerides, a risk factor for heart disease.
  • Increasing blood flow throughout the brain and body.
  • Targeting mood swings.
  • Assisting with relief for cramps, nausea, breast sensitivity, irritability and headaches.
  • Supporting good bone health during menopause and beyond.

I started taking supplements when I was going through menopause over 10 years ago. They give me energy and eliminate a lot of the side effects that come with lack of hormones. I am so happy I found Women's Health Network!
