Hardy Nutrtitionals Optimal Balance for Women - formerly called Daily Self Defense™ For Women is unlike any other women’s supplement. It’s an exceptional combination of scientifically-balanced vitamins, minerals, and botanicals specifically designed to prevent stress, depression, and anxiety, allowing you to look and feel your best. It also meets a women’s full daily requirement for iron and provides a positive estrogenic factor—royal jelly—to support healthy estrogen production.*
Optimal Balance™ is an excellent daily multivitamin for adults and children who don't need the clinical levels found in Daily Essential Nutrients. See below for a recent study that showed how Optimal Balance as Daily Self Defense™ greatly improved sleep quality in individuals suffering with insomnia. Optimal Balance™ is powered by Hardy Nutritionals' proprietary NutraTek™ mineral-delivery technology which enables vital nutrients to be optimally absorbed and efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier—delivering mind-clearing and mood-enhancing effects that other supplements can’t match.*
Suggested Use :
For ages 9 and older, take 3 capsules in the middle of a meal, twice daily. Children ages 4-8 may take 3 capsules per day.
At the recommended adult dose (6 capsules/day), a bottle of Daily Self Defense™ - For Women lasts 30 days.
Note: Optimal Balance for Women/Daily Self Defense™ - For Women was formulated specifically for general health use.
