Check out the sister protocol post called Everyone’s Daily Supplement Protocol. If you’re under 35 with perfect hormone balance head there. PLEASE consult your health provider before taking any supplements.
These Women’s Twice Daily Essential Packets are what I take myself, and what I recommend for women over 35, as well as women under 35 with hormone imbalances (PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, painful periods, estrogen dominance, and perimenopause).
These packets are a super convenient way for women to get their daily essential nutrients in two easy packets (with the exception of vitamin D – you may need even more, see this post). No need to count, sort, or measure. All the basics are included, in bio-available forms, each batch tested by a 3rd party lab for ingredient quality. In addition, these include FemGuard, a special herbal supplement to support your hormones. The manufacturer Designs For Health does not use plastic bottles or let products sit too long in storage or at high temperatures (ahem, Amazon).
Here’s what each packet contains:
1. Twice-Daily Multi™ (1)
Twice-Daily Multi™ meets my criteria for a top-notch multi, with:
- Bioavailable forms of B vitamins
- Real vitamin A as palmitate
- Chelated trace minerals, all the important ones, with copper and iron not included (most people don’t need these)
- A superior form of vitamin E
- Decent amounts of vitamins C and D
- Chromium and alpha-lipoic acid for blood sugar stability
See the Twice-Daily Multi™ tech sheet.
2. OsteoForce™ (2)
OsteoForce™ is a comprehensive supplement to build and protect bones. I recommend this for women over 35 and also for pregnant women in their third trimester as they are growing an extra skeleton and bone nutrients needs are high. Your growing baby will take all your calcium out of your bones if they need to, in order to grow theirs. Did you know that you set the course of your baby’s bone density for life while they are in utero?

3. OmegAvail™ Synergy (1)
OmegAvail™ Synergy is a blend of essential fatty acids that includes omega-3 fats (EPA and DHA) in a high-quality form (this is super important with delicate omega-3 fats). It also has GLA from borage oil. GLA is a special fatty acid that supports healthy hormones.
See the OmegAvail™ Synergy education sheet.
2. Femguard + Balance® (2)
These packets add a full therapeutic dose of Femguard & Balance® which is my favorite supplement for hormone balance. It has herbs that support female hormone levels and phases 1 and 2 estrogen detox. I love this blend for perimenopause, PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, painful periods, and estrogen dominance. (This is the same supplement Dr. Jolene Brighton private labels as “Balance” and that lady knows her stuff)!
