GLA Maximus

Through Magdalena I have become aware that my holt flashes and other menopause symptoms are a combination of hormone levels and sugar balance. GLA Maximus is the first product that has helped me to start to manage the insulin resistance. Highly recommend

GLA Love!

I was experiencing worse than "normal" hot flashes. They were nuclear. Within 2 weeks of taking GLA Maximus 2x per day (morning and night), my hot flashes decreased significantly. I had only 3 baby hot flashes today, down from 25-40. BIG difference. I've been religiously taking a black cohosh/herbal tincture for a year now and I never experienced such a phenomenal decrease in hot flashes. I highly recommend this product for those suffering crazy hot flashes. Thank you, Wellena!

This is so great to hear! Thanks for leaving us this great review and sharing with us your experience. We really value your feedback and are happy this seems to be working well for you.

"If you've heard of Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), you've heard of GLA which stands for Gamma-Linolenic Acid.

This active ingredient, in my view, is highly underestimated for its superior pain-relieving and inflammation-lowering properties. Interestingly, oil derived from Borage seeds are 2 to 3 times higher in GLA as compared to EPO - this is why we source and extract this magical oil from borage seeds."

Our GLA is derived 100% from borage seed oil (Borago officinalis).

Not everyone does well on GLA-rich oils or supplements. Because GLA is a natural blood-thinning agent, those on blood-thinner medications like Warfarin should check with their doctors before adding GLA supplements.

Borage supplements may also be a problem for those on anticonvulsant medications. Elderly patients particularly experienced interactions between those medications and borage oil.

Pregnant women should avoid borage, and consult with their health practitioner before introducing any new supplements.

DO YOU SHIP TO CANADA, THE UK, AUSTRALIA OR OTHER COUNTRIES?

Unfortunately, at this point we only ship to the United States. This is due to the ever-evolving international laws surrounding supplements.

There are forwarding companies like MyUS.com, that will forward orders to you in your country for a fee.

In this case, it is the customer's responsibility to find out in advance if the supplement in question is legal in their country. For example, Progesterone and DHEA are not legal to ship into Canada (Canada classifies bio-identical hormones as drugs so they can only be prescribed by a doctor or naturopath).

We have had customers successfully ship their supplements abroad using MyUS.com, however we have only limited experience with this service.

WHY DOES SHIPPING COST $11.45?

For small businesses like ours, the shipping fee covers the very real costs of getting your order to you: shipping, handling, packaging, warehousing, insurances, and fairly compensating all the people involved along the way. We do our best to keep this shipping cost as low as possible, and offer FREE shipping for orders $97 and above.

WHY DOES MY SUBSCRIPTION ORDER INCLUDE $11.45 SHIPPING?

If you set up a subscription order and notice that you are being charged shipping, it could be due to one of these reasons:

1. Your order value is under $97

2. Your initial order qualifies for free shipping, but the order frequency on your subscriptions is different ( 1 product is set to ship every month, the other is set to ship every 2 months).

*The system automatically splits this kind of order into 2 separate shipments.

In this case it is more economical to set up one subscription every 2 months, and to increase your quantity to 2 units of the supplement that you consume monthly.

For example: 2 Vitamin B6 + 1 Essential Omegas every 2 months = free shipping.

Please email us at support@hormonesbalance.com if you would like some help managing your subscriptions.
