Frequently Asked Questions

Hormone Imbalance

Q. Which product is right for me – 30 PLUS or BALANCE?
A. NuWoman BALANCE and NuWoman 30 PLUS have the same scientifically researched and highly efficacious ingredients formulated to assist hormonal imbalance. So, whether you are a younger woman struggling with hormonal acne, bouts of Pre-Menstrual issues and maybe feeling out of control while needing a bit of support then BALANCE is designed for you. Or you are a woman in her mid-years finding mood swings, irritability, stress and lack of energy getting in the way of life, then 30 PLUS is designed for you. The only difference is the dosage where BALANCE is recommended as a one a day tablet in the morning for younger women aged 18 years and over. NuWoman 30 PLUS is a twice day formulation am and pm.

Q. Why did you bring out the same product for 30 PLUS and BALANCE
A. Although we say on our NuWoman 30 PLUS pack that its suitable for women of all ages. Our most frequent comment from younger women over the past 20 years has been that they were not yet 30 years old so believed the product wasn’t suitable for them.
