Gut Health

A healthy gut microbiome plays a key role in women's health and hormone regulation.

The gut is an intricate ecosystem that influences oestrogen and progesterone levels, it impacts our menstrual cycles, mental health and for many women can be the missing health link to rebalance.

If you are suffering with sugar craving, sleep disturbances, irregular periods and fertility imbalances then you could have a poor gut microbiome and we can help you restore your gut microbiome and add back that layer of health and hormonal balance.

A compromised gut microbiome can significantly impact both menopause and fertility.

Gut Health & Menopause


A poor gut microbiome can exacerbate symptoms such as hot flushes, disturbed sleep and mood swings. This is due to the complex relationship of the gut-brain axis and the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Both these play a fundamental role in stress management and hormone regulation.

 By restoring a healthy diverse gut microbiome we support hormonal regulation and in clinic we see patients with less sugar cravings, improved sleep, reduced cortisol and as a result they start to see weight changes and enjoy a new layer of health.

Gut Health & Fertility


The gut microbiome influences the synthesis and metabolism of key reproductive hormones oestrogen and progesterone. These 2 hormones are vital for egg quality and production and for preparing your uterus lining and supporting pregnancies.

A thriving, diverse and abundant gut microbiome facilitates excellent nutrient absorption which is essential for reproductive health.

They have the highest standards of bio molecules. 100% pure extract. GMP pharmaceutical quality and safety standards. These are backed by clinical research and development.

How long do I need to take the mushrooms for?

We recommend you take your supplement for at least 2 months initially to restore the gut microbiome. After this we will have a call to go through your symptoms again and we will then have a health view to allow us to decide next steps for you. This may be diet only, the same mushrooms or changing to a blended product for maintenance.
