As women, we are always striving for balance. The balance between work and play, family and friends, playdates and date nights, wine and water…you know what we mean. We all know one of the biggest balances we strive for is hormonal balance. Regardless of the stage, we are at in our fertility journey; from regulating our cycles, decreasing stressful menstrual symptoms,
to trying to conceive, finding the balance in our female reproductive cycle can be a challenge.
Fortunately at Pink Stork, we love an obstacle and see these issues as an opportunity to create a perfect solution…in the form of Pink Stork Fertility!
Our Total Fertility support supplement is designed with a blend of organic herbs and natural vitamins combined to regulate the female reproductive cycle. We’ve not only included essential prenatal vitamins such as folate, B-complex, vitamin D, and iron, but we’ve added some of the best herbs to balance your hormones and aid in your ability to conceive. One of our favorite herbs for this process is chaste tree berry extract, that has been used for thousands of years to assist women with menstrual difficulties. It is able to balance progesterone and estrogen levels and helps stimulate the hormones involved during ovulation (1). And another
bonus, it has been shown to significantly reduce the number of PMS symptoms including depression, anxiety, and cravings.
Our next favorite ingredient is Ashwagandha, which is proven to have hormone-balancing effects, improve your energy levels and decrease tension. It has also been shown to calm your mind, balance your mood, and helps your body and mind respond to stress better, which in turn keeps your reproductive organs strong and healthy (2). Ashwagandha has also been
shown to improve the function of your thyroid gland, which is known to directly affect fertility by regulating your reproductive hormones (3). And Ashwagandha’s final bonus? A study showed promising benefits with male infertility. The outcome showed it may be used as empirical therapy for clinical management and treatment of infertility in men (4) #bonus
Another of our favorite ingredients is Shatavari Root. It contains a steroidal saponins compound that is used as an estrogen regulator. Shatavari can help balance your cycle, improve follicular maturity, and stabilize any menstrual irregularities, which all can aid in increasing your chances of getting pregnant (5). With all of these powerful herbs and vitamins, we want to give you the boost your fertility needs and deserves. Life is always a balancing act, but your fertility and hormones do not have to be one of them!
