Take a deep breath in. Hold it in for a couple seconds. Now breathe out slowly through your mouth. Feel better already? That’s a glimpse into the feeling of serenity you’ll get from Hormone Balance.
Calm. Peace. Resilience. Everything we need in the craziest of times.
Our hectic and stressful lives put a heavy toll on our body and mind. In practice, this often translates into nutritional deficiencies that our regular diets struggle to make up for. In particular, stress-related Magnesium deficiency is widespread across the Western world. This can quickly lead to debilitating health issues such as low energy levels, mood swings, fatigue, loss of appetite and more. Sound familiar? Do read on.
While we can’t control the craziness of the world around us, we can shift how our body and mind respond to it. We can build a fortress of inner strength and quietude, from which nothing can hurt us.
Enter Hormone Balance – our mighty stress shield.
The Science-Backed Benefits of Hormone Balance
Expertly balanced with 3 sources of highly bioavailable Magnesium, Hormone Balance is here to restore your natural nervous system defences.
In each capsule of Hormone Balance, Magnesium is provided in 3 different forms to maximise bioavailability – meaning your body will absorb the elemental mineral easily and make good use of it to fight off cortisol stress hormones.
And Magnesium does a lot more than fight off cortisol. It is in fact responsible for over 300 reactions in the body. Some of these reactions are muscle-relaxing: by clearing out calcium build-ups they help reduce muscle spasms and contractions, alleviating twitchy legs and helping still the body and mind. Magnesium is also key to ATP energy production by the mitochondria inside our cells: it is, in fact, one of the essential building blocks of ATP, which is why you’ll feel so much more resilient through the day with Hormone Balance.
Unlike most supplements, Hormone Balance does not rely on Magnesium Oxide, which has a high concentration of elemental magnesium but a lousy absorption rate in the body, rendering it effectively useless. Beware of Mg Oxide on any supplement label.
Instead, Hormone Balance contains these 3 sources of highly available elemental Mg with additional benefits:
- Magnesium Taurate, an important source of taurine for cardiovascular health and blood sugar balancing: think stable energy levels through the day and curbing those mood swings.
- Magnesium Bisglycinate, containing glycine, a highly absorbable amino acid known for its multiple health benefits, including neurological support and sleep improvements.
- Magnesium Ascorbate, which contains ascorbic acid, a source of vitamin C – scaling up the nervous system benefits of Hormone Balance.
These 3 sources of elemental Magnesium are combined with a dose of Vitamin B6 in Hormone Balance. Together, these nutrients have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, particularly in premenstrual women and in older women. Vitamin C may also reduce anxiety and mitigate increased blood pressure in response to stress for both men and women.
Magnesium is responsible for over 300 reactions in the body – and so is Zinc. Zinc Bisglycinate, a highly absorbable source of the mineral, is included in Hormone Balance as adequate zinc levels are essential for stable mood and inner resilience.
When formulating each Motion Nutrition product, we take a careful look at the holistic effect of our ingredients, which is why you’ll find a small dose of Copper in Hormone Balance. Indeed, Zinc Bisglycinate should be provided with Copper in a ratio of 10:1 so that Copper levels are not depleted from the body, as these 2 metals are antagonists. As a bonus, Copper also happens to support the nervous system against stress.
At Motion, we also stay clear of inert fillers and bulking ingredients. Instead, every ingredient must serve a purpose. This is why we’ve included Pomegranate extract in Hormone Balance: a natural source of cyanadins, commonly described in scientific literature as being anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant.
So let’s sum up the key benefits from Hormone Balance as highlighted by scientific journals:
- Supports your ability to handle stress and anxiety,
- Helps muscular relaxation and reloading of ATP energy,
- Improves blood sugar balancing and blood pressure in response to stress,
- Provides building blocks for better sleep and recovery,
- Sets the groundwork for stable mood through the day.

1. Is Hormone Balance right for you?
Do you live a high stress, hectic lifestyle? Do you feel lethargic in the early afternoon, and a little overwhelmed by spinning several plates? Do you sometimes feel uncontrollable twitches in your muscles (a sign of Magnesium deficiency)?
If you answered yes to any of these, Hormone Balance might be just what you need. This is a stress relief, resilience building supplement. It provides the right nutrients for your body and mind to handle everything that comes your way.
Hormone Balance is suitable for both men and women over the age of 15.
Is Hormone Balance OK during pregnancy / breastfeeding?
Yes! Hormone Balance is safe to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Alongside stress relief, it may provide some gentle sleep support during these times, too. If you have any medical conditions, please consult your practitioner before use.
What is the best time of day to take Hormone Balance?
We recommend taking 2 capsules of Hormone Balance in the evening, about an hour before bed. Hormone Balance works extremely well taken alongside Unplug to maximise overnight recovery and improve stress-resilience the following day.
How quickly will I feel improvements?
As with all our supplements, we do not offer quick fixes that simply mask the symptoms. Instead, we aim to heal the root cause of any issue. Most people will notice preliminary benefits from Hormone Balance on the very first day, and improvements will build over the course of several weeks of daily use.
I have jumpy, restless legs at night, will Hormone Balance help?
Yes! Many people suffer with leg spasms when sleeping or trying to sleep, and this can be quite a barrier to a good night’s rest. Supplementing with Hormone Balance will provide relief from this thanks to the triple source of Magnesium.
