The Best Supplements for Hormone Balance
If you're at the start of your hormone balance journey, you may be wondering... what are the best supplements for hormone balance?
Karagan, the founder of S'moo had the same question as she navigated her PCOS symptoms and after years of trial and error, and research... she found the best supplements for hormone balance that were highly studied and recommended by doctors, naturopaths and reproductive specialists.
Those same supplements have since became Ovary Good by S'moo, our best selling Hormone Balance Powder which makes it easier to take all of these supplements in one easy scoop.
What is Ovary Good by S'moo?

Ovary Good contains 7 vitamins, minerals and herbs that are all highly studied and recommended for hormone balance, and PCOS. In this blog, we'll be going over each vitamin, mineral and herb in Ovary Good by S'moo and how it can help you in your hormone balance journey.

So, how can one product help with so many things?
It’s because when your body has a hormone imbalance, your body starts producing too much or too little of these powerful hormones. This can create a natural disaster inside you and cause many unwanted symptoms.
Symptoms vary from woman to woman but overall hormone imbalances can cause a snowball effect that is hard to get a hold of. We're so happy that S'moo has helped so many women, however results may vary person to person. Not one natural supplement is the right fit for everyone and it's important to discuss with your doctor or naturopath before starting any new supplement regimen.
What supplement is good for balancing hormones?
All of the following ingredients can help with multiple symptoms but it’s the unique dose and combination of Vitamins, Minerals and Herbs in S’moo that help so many women every day.
Let's breakdown the 7 vitamins, minerals and herbs:
One of my favorite ingredients that helps promote normal hormone levels and regular menstrual cycles is Inositol. It also helps how the body processes and uses insulin which can be beneficial for women with PCOS who commonly struggle with insulin resistance.
What is Insulin Resistance?
You’re going to hear a lot about insulin in this blog, so what is it? Insulin is a hormone that regulates the absorption of sugar (glucose) by cells. If your body is over producing insulin, more glucose is able to enter your cells but your cells can get more glucose than they need. Glucose that your cells don’t use becomes fat.
A driving condition that leads to multiple PCOS symptoms is high insulin. This is because high insulin not only can cause weight gain but also cause the ovaries to make excess testosterone and impair ovulation. Which is why, besides having Inositol in S’moo to help with insulin, you’ll see a few more ingredients mentioned in this blog to help regulate insulin because rebalancing your insulin can cure many symptoms.
NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine)
Another helpful ingredient to help improve insulin levels and insulin sensitivity is NAC supplementation. NAC helps to reduce menstrual irregularity, abnormal hair growth (hirsutism), and cholesterol.
Some studies also show improved ovulation and pregnancy rates as well as improving egg and embryo quality, which makes sense because having a balanced insulin level that isn’t over producing will bring back a more regular cycle. Which is why NAC is great for increasing your fertility.
Suffering from infertility and depression? Ashwagandha may help with symptoms like irregular period, infertility, depression, weight gain, and insomnia by restoring hormonal balance. It lowers cortisol (stress hormone) and testosterone. It makes the body use up insulin and lowers fat. It also fights cell damage by boosting immunity. Taken with other herbs, it induces ovulation, regularizes periods, and relieves period pain.
Magnesium is one of the body’s electrolytes, which are minerals that carry an electric charge when dissolved into the bloodstream. It’s amazing how many people actually aren’t getting enough magnesium because it’s needed for over 300 body reactions and functions. S’moo has Magnesium Citrate used to improve insulin sensitivity, fight fatigue & stress, improve heart health, fight symptoms of depression and promotes better sleep. “Magnesium is a mineral that our bodies rely on to feel fit, healthy and full of vitality,” nutritionist Fiona Tuck.
This next one is a chemical compound often used as a nutritional supplement to treat type 2 diabetes and reduce insulin resistance. Chromium Picolinate is a trace mineral that enhances the function of insulin, it does this by increasing the sensitivity of the insulin receptor. We picked this ingredient for S’moo for all the women suffering from PCOS. It’s important because when PCOS is left untreated, 40% of women will develop type 2 diabetes, not to mention have difficulty avoiding weight gain.
Vitamin D3 has been shown to play a role in egg quality, egg development, and overall fertility. Vitamin D has also been associated with reducing androgen levels, improving overall mood, and lowering inflammation.
You can check out a longer blog on Vitamin D here.
Zinc Gluconate may help improve PMS symptoms, fertility, hair loss, acne prone skin and reduce inflammation. Cholesterol and glucose metabolism, as well as fertility are all affected by Zinc. Zinc plays a very important role in your body’s production, storage, and use of insulin.
Check out our blog on Zinc here.
Here is a quick recap of the supplements in Ovary Good and the best Hormone Balance supplements:
Inositol: May help promote normal hormone levels and regular menstrual cycles.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC): May help improve insulin levels and insulin sensitivity.
Magnesium Citrate: May improve insulin sensitivity, fight fatigue & stress, improve heart health, fight symptoms of depression and promotes better sleep.
