FAQ

What benefits does Balance cream offer?

Balance cream supports hormone balance, mood and a good night’s sleep. It also promotes strong bones, reduces hot flashes, PMS, helps with fertility, offers neuroprotective effects and is a great anti-aging skin cream as it firms skin and reduces age spots.

How do I use Balance Cream?

General dosage: Massage 1 pump into thin skin areas including the face, neck, chest, inner-arms, perineum and lower abdomen. Massage well into skin. Be sure to rotate sites, so that you do not over saturate the areas. The pump dispenses approximately 0.6g per pump, roughly equivalent to a level ¼ tsp. Apply to your face and neck and you'll see how the added peptides strengthen your skin!

We expect you will see improvements in at least 4-8 weeks although many of our clients experience more immediate results; it will vary depending on the individual. As with any cosmetics, anti-aging creams, you should wash your hands after applying so as not to inadvertently apply to children, other family members or pets. Premenopausal (cycling):

  • The dose varies depending on overall health goals, length of cycle and menstrual history;
  • Count the first day of bleeding as day 1. On day 14 of your period start using the Balance cream till day 28. Generally, apply 1 pump from day 14 to day 28 of the menstrual cycle. You are using it between ovulation and the start of your period.

Post-Menopausal or Menopausal:

Use 1 pump for ...

  • 25 consecutive days taking 5 days off, then repeat.
  • Alternative dosage: use 5-6 days a week, taking 1-2 days off per week
  • or otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.

How do I use the cream for irregular periods? (or when in Perimenopause)?

When we are in Perimenopause and still having our periods but they are irregular, it can be difficult to time the use of progesterone.

Here are the directions for use if you have irregular periods:

If your periods are irregular during Perimenopause, start the Balance cream 10 to 12 days after the first day of the last menstrual period and continue for two weeks or until your period begins, whichever feels better. Sometimes your period may not start back up and so you can just simply take a break for a week to 10 days, and then start again.

This is our general guidance in using the product, Balance. If you are concerned with irregular periods, then you should talk to your practitioner to rule out any underlying conditions.

Why do we take a 5 day break a month or 1 day a week break from Balance cream?

If you are menopausal /postmenopausal and you're not having your period any longer, we recommend not using for one or two days per week or three to five days per month to take a break.The reason for this is so that we can avoid suppressing our body's own natural production of progesterone in this way. We want to support progesterone and optimize it, but not suppress it.

How much Pregnenolone and Progesterone is in one application?

Each pump of the Balance cream provides approximately 20 mg of progesterone and 10 mg of pregnenolone.

How many doses are in each bottle of Balance?

The Balance Cream is a 1.6 oz bottle and is approximately 40-50 doses per bottle at the recommended dosage of 1/2 to 1 pump per day.

Where is Balance cream manufactured?

Balance Cream is manufactured in the United States and undergoes a variety of stringent testing for quality and purity.

Is it safe to use Balance when my ovaries are removed/ partial or if I’ve had a full hysterectomy?

Yes, it's safe to use it. Many women who have had their ovaries removed feel significantly better by adding Balance cream.

The cream can be helpful with early menopause hormonal changes that are probable with a partial hysterectomy. Progesterone is very important for women who no longer have a uterus. This is often overlooked by conventional medical practitioners. Many women are told since they don’t have a uterus they no longer need progesterone. Not true: our brains, our bones, our fascia all need progesterone. Without it, we suffer from unnecessary aches, pains, brain fog, osteoporosis, and more.

Can I use Balance if I’m on oral progesterone/estrogen pills?

Generally Dr. Anna recommends using 1/4 pump of Balance with your dose of oral progesterone with the guidance and approval from your Practitioner to be sure using both works well for your body. Always listen to what your body needs

Can I use it on my face only?

It's perfect to use on the face as it works as an anti-aging cream. We recommend rotating sides to prevent the area from being oversaturated

Why is it recommended to rotate sequentially to different body parts?

The reason for rotating sides is to prevent the area from being over-saturated.

Should I use it in the morning or at night?

We have many customers who use it in the evening as it helps with sleep, however some women find it stimulating, so prefer using it first thing in the morning. It's up to you based on your routine and you may need to change it up to see what works best for you

Is there any age limit on when to use this cream? Is it safe for young adults ?

It is safe for women of all ages. However, for women under 35, please check in with your practitioner as women's hormone level requirements vary based on age.

Is this safe to use with a history of breast or other cancers?

For women having a previous breast cancer diagnosis and/or treatment, Dr. Anna strongly suggests women always talk with their oncologist.

Is progesterone and pregnenolone natural or synthetic?

Balance contains natural (NOT synthetic) Progesterone and Pregnenolone.

Natural progesterone is identical to the progesterone that is produced by the body. It is manufactured in scientific laboratories from wild yams (Non- GMO).

Will it help with hot flashes? If yes, how?

Balance cream contains Progesterone and Pregnenolone along with Tripeptides that can help support your body's natural anti-inflammatory system.

Progesterone also converts downstream to DHEA and Estrogen which also can be beneficial to helping hot flashes. It is the precursor mother hormone, and it does this without increasing serum progesterone levels. The overall benefit of this Body and Mind cream is that it helps with stress reduction, supports a good night's sleep and helps hot flashes.

What are the common side effects?

Adverse side effects are rare. Slight alter in the timing of the menstrual cycle, occasional break-through bleeding if used inappropriately

Why do some women get breakthrough bleeding while on Balance?

Sometimes breakthrough bleeding is part of the uterine lining rebalancing itself. Sometimes it's caused by the fact that we are addressing estrogen dominance and working to balance hormones. Often when starting any hormone cream, it can take two to three months to regulate.

Alternatively, sometimes it could be a stimulation of a uterine polyp and any irregular bleeding should be evaluated with a pelvic ultrasound/ vaginal ultrasound to ensure that there is not something within the endometrium lining of the uterus that is pathologic.

Please always consult with your doctor if you have any breakthrough or post menopausal bleeding and other concerns.

Can pregnant or breastfeeding women use it?

We do not recommend it for pregnant and breastfeeding women. We recommend it to those who are trying to conceive. When adding any new products or supplements to your routine during pregnancy, we recommend first checking with your practitioner so that they can guide you on what is best for you based on your history and your body’s requirements.

With that said, if you are postpartum experiencing depression or postpartum blues, consult with your doctor to see if progesterone and pregnenolone may benefit you. There have been benefits shown.

How long can I use Balance cream for?

You can use Balance cream regularly. You can continue indefinitely post menopause.

What is the guarantee on Balance cream?

We offer a generous 60 day money back guarantee

“Game changer! Since starting this cream, I feel more like my younger self. My fun-loving personality is back and I’m sleeping through the night.” — Beth B.

  • Progesterone from Wild Yam

    Extracted from wild yams to be bioidentical (just like your body produces), progesterone is a powerful hormone promotes memory, eases PMS and anxiety, improves insomnia and libido, while reducing inflammation/joint pain, hot flashes and weight gain.

  • Pregnenolone

    Pregnenolone is known as the "mother hormone," pregnenolone enhances both memory and cognition; fights fatigue, stress and depression; helps arthritis and lowers cholesterol.

  • Tri-Peptide 29

    When applied to skin, Tri-peptide 29 strengthens skin's supportive elements, improving uneven texture, reducing the look of fine lines and improving hydration. Its small size means it's more easily absorbed to reach its target areas quickly.

  • Grape Seed Extract

    High in antioxidants, it can lower blood pressure, while improving collagen levels and bone strength. Grape seed extract also supports brain function, reduces kidney damage and cancer risk, and aids in wound healing.

  • Coconut Fruit Extract

    There's good reason to love coconuts. They support a heart health, stabilizes blood sugar levels, protect from oxidative damage, promote weight loss and improve skin's overall health.

  • Rosemary Oil & Lavender Oil

    Much more than just an aromatic, Rosemary improves brain function; stimulates hair growth; reduces anxiety and inflammation; fights fatigue; and promotes both liver and digestive health.

    There's more to love about lavender. It soothes eczema and dry skin; reduces fine lines and wrinkles; is an anti-inflammatory; relieves pain; and improves skin's overall appearance.

  • At a Glance

    Most synthetic progesterone-like products actually contain progestins, which are synthetic analogs of progesterone; progestins are far more powerful than the body’s own natural progesterone. Progestins can be metabolized into toxic by-products that may interfere with the body’s own natural progesterone, creating other hormone-related health problems and further exacerbating estrogen dominance. Natural progesterone, on the other hand, is identical to the progesterone that is produced by the body. It is manufactured in scientific laboratories from organic yams (natural progesterone should not be confused with "yam extracts"). Pregnenolone levels, like many health-promoting hormones, drop with age. It is an important hormone for many aspects of health and aging well, including bone and brain health.

Great for my skin

I like that very little of the Balance cream really softens my skin. I have noticed an improvement in smoothness and fine lines, especially on my neck. The pump container is excellent as I dislike creams in jars that you have to dip your fingers into. I have not yet noticed any changes in my mood, energy level or sleeplessness. Hopefully that will follow.
