Yes, I'm Hormonal. And Proud.
While hormones certainly affect our mood, a healthy hormone cycle affects so much more than that. It is the reason we menstruate (or not) and can ultimately reproduce, if we so desire. When our hormone cycle is disrupted, it can cause a whole host of health issues from mood swings to acne, to severe PMS and period pain, as well as long term reproductive issues.
Bootsy Health is about empowering people to take control and learn about their hormonal and menstrual health with the same passion and interest we do fitness, nutrition or beauty.
Our inaugural product is a plant-based Hormone Balancing Elixir that supports women suffering from PMS, mood swings, acne or irregular cycles (amenorrhea), as well as perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms*.
We aim to provide science backed, natural products that women enjoy and feel proud to use.
Let's appreciate the natural changes in our bodies during our cycle and our lifetime and talk about the facts in easy to understand terms.
You got this.

After suffering from severe period pain, PMS and irregular cycles for most of her adult life, only to be prescribed the pill as a cure-all, she decided to take matters into her own hands and find a natural way to resolve her issues. After extensive research, visits to multiple naturopaths and intensely studying clinical trials, she was able to resolve her long term issues naturally and made it her mission to educate women about their menstrual and hormonal health.
