Promotes healthy estrogen balance
As women approach perimenopause, they often experience a shift in estrogen metabolism. (1) This shift can alter their balance in estrogen metabolite ratios, leading to an overabundance of harmful estrogens. (1) Although changes in hormone metabolism are considered part of the normal aging process, imbalanced estrogen levels can negatively impact overall health and well-being. Some estrogen metabolites, such as 16α-hydroxyestrone and 4-hydroxyestrone, can also increase a woman’s risk of chronic illnesses. (2,3)
Certain herbs, flavonoids, spices, and plant extracts are used to maintain healthy estrogen metabolite ratios and provide antioxidant protection to support women’s health and energy as they age. Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, contain the anti-carcinogenic compounds I3C and sulforaphane. I3C has been shown to promote healthy estrogen metabolism by shifting the balance of estrogen metabolites in the body toward the beneficial form called 2-hydroxyestrone, while inhibiting the production of harmful forms. (2) In a clinical trial, women were supplemented with 400 mg (6–7 mg/kg) of I3C per day for two months. Urine samples confirmed that supplementation significantly increased women’s levels of the beneficial catechol estrogens and lowered their levels of endogenous estradiol and estrone. (4) A 5.5 year prospective study confirmed that a metabolic pathway leading to a higher ratio of 2-hydroxyestrone to 16α-hydroxyestrone is associated with a 40% lower risk of breast cancer in premenopausal women. (3)
Milk thistle has been used for centuries to support liver function, the liver’s ability to eliminate toxins, and antioxidant defence. (5) The seeds of the milk thistle plant contain silymarin, a mixture of active analytes that support liver function by fighting oxidative stress and stimulating the production of glutathione, a key antioxidant. The German Commission E also recommends milk thistle for liver malfunctions, such as toxin-induced liver damage, cirrhosis, and chronic inflammatory liver conditions. (6)
Small amounts of D-glucarate are made naturally by the body and are also acquired by eating oranges, apples, grapefruits, and cruciferous vegetables. (7) It plays an important role in increasing glucuronidation, the process where the liver detoxifies and eliminates chemical carcinogens, steroid hormones, and other toxins. It also helps the body excrete unhealthy estrogens and other toxins that may otherwise be reabsorbed. (7)
Ultimate Her Energy combines potent antioxidants to neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative damage. Curcumin is the main antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound in turmeric. A placebo-controlled study supplemented healthy middle-aged people with 80 mg of curcumin per day for four weeks. Curcumin notably increased markers of cardiovascular health and antioxidant status, while also lowering markers of stress and liver injury. (8)

What is this product? How can it help me?If you’re a woman over 35, you are probably already starting to feel the effects of what is now referred to as Estrogen-dominance, a condition in which healthful estrogens are pushed out of the way by unhealthful estrogens. New research confirms that hormone metabolism changes with age. By restoring healthy hormone fidelity, you can once again look, feel and perform in a youthful manner. Ultimate Her Energy™ is a one of a kind synergistic formulation of naturally proven and scientifically validated herbs, flavonoids, spices and vegetable extracts that work to help you get the balance back.
Estrogen dominance? That's bad…right?
Estrogen dominance is responsible for creating enhanced abdominal fat accumulation. The Ultimate Her Energy was developed to naturally inhibit negative estrogen metabolites and help convert them into healthy ones (of the 2-hydroxy family). By creating healthy estrogens, your body can reduce its need to store excess fat in the tummy area - an ongoing problem with many, many women.
Does this product make or elevate estrogen?
No, this product was not designed to elevate estrogen in any way, but instead to protect the body from the accumulation of harmful toxic byproducts of estrogen (many of which come from the environment and estrogen/estradiol itself).
Can I take Ultimate Her Energy if I am taking an oral contraceptive?
Ultimate Her Energy is an important supplement when it comes to reducing and eliminating the negative effects of bad estrogens - including those contained in birth control pills. While Her Energy is safe to take while you are on oral contraceptives, and the supplement will not negate the birth control pill in any way, we do however recommend that you let your health care practitioner know that you are also taking Her Energy.
Does this product contain soy?
No, based on our supplier's information, the raw materials used in Ultimate Her Energy do not contain soy.
I am starting Ultimate Her Energy. How long can I expect to see results, especially with regards to belly fat?
It depends on the amount of toxins your body is carrying, so it is not easy to give a timeline. If you really want to target belly fat, our best recommendation is to take 2 Ultimate Her Energy twice a day (in between meals) and 3 Ultimate Anti-Stress before bed - the Ultimate Anti-Stress will likely cause a more noticeable belly fat decrease as many women accumulate belly fat due to excess stress hormones.
Is Ultimate Her Energy gluten free?
Yes, we do have confirmation on file that there is no gluten added and no gluten present in Ultimate Her Energy. However, our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten free facility, and as we do process products that contain gluten we are unable to confirm 100% that there is no possibility of cross contamination.
Are Brad King's products WADA certified?
No, we do not have an official WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) designation or release on our Ultimate products by Brad King.I have noticed that many of Brad King's products contain an ingredient called "Bioperine Black Pepper Extract". What exactly is this?This black pepper is not the same as pure black pepper. It is actually a standardized extract from the fruit of black pepper (containing 95% piperine). It is used in the majority of the Ultimate products to increase the bio-availability of the nutrients within these formulas. Bioperine is the only source from piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its complete safety and research-proven efficacy for nutritional use. Many individuals have difficulty absorbing and utilizing nutrients within nutritional formulas. The Ultimate products insure that people are not only getting the best formulas possible, but that they are actually absorbing and utilizing what they are paying for.
I recently bought a "bonus" bottle of Ultimate Her Energy 150 capsules, and I was extremely disappointed in the packaging. The bottle is huge and when you open it, it's only 1/4 full. I don't understand why the bottle has to be so big - isn't this a waste of packaging in the day and age of being environmentally friendly? Why not at least put it in a smaller bottle? 150 capsules are 150 capsules, no matter what size the bottle is.
This has been an ongoing challenge with our bonus bottles. With Canadian label standards it has been difficult to get all the required print on our labels in both English and French while keeping the font large enough that it can be easily read. Also, this is a bonus bottle size which required us to use a larger bottle than the 120's so that there would be no confusion on the shelves at retail level. We have used smaller bottles in the past and have received feedback that the writing was too small and hard to read. We try our best to put our products in the smallest bottle possible in an effort to be mindful of the environment, and we do use recyclable plastic.
Do all of your products have an NPN?
Yes, all of our products have been issued a Natural Product Number (NPN) by Health Canada – these numbers do appear on our labels. Further Natural Health Product criteria and information can be found on the Health Canada website www.hc-sc.gc.ca Under the Food and Drugs Act items that are considered a food – for example, our protein powders and herbal teas – do not require an NPN. Are your capsules GMO free?
Yes, our vegetarian capsule shells, our gelatin capsule shells and our softgel shells are all non-GMO.Are your products GMO free?
Preferred Nutrition is currently in the process of testing all of our products so that we can advise the public if any of them contain ingredients that come from genetically modified organisms or not. Once the testing is complete we will indicate on our website, as well as on our product information sheets and on our labels. This will be done as quickly as possible and on a product-by-product basis.Why have your cautions and your recommended/suggested usages changed so dramatically on many of your labels?
The changes you are noticing to our suggested usage and cautionary statements have been at the directive of Health Canada. There have been many regulatory changes with regards to Natural Health Products causing companies to change their labels accordingly. We update our website, product information sheets and labels on the actual products to reflect these regulations as quickly as we possibly can. Health Canada and the industry representing natural health products act according to the interest of consumers and their safety. As a result, if there is any concern with an existing condition, a caution is added to advise the consumer to seek out feedback from their Health Care professional. Will this product help me lose weight?
There is no such thing as a "magic" pill or product - the only way to succeed (and maintain) true weight loss is by adopting a healthy lifestyle combining adequate exercise and proper nutrition. If you are concerned about poor eating habits or cravings, then we recommend you seek advice from a Nutritionist or Naturopath to obtain some guidance on healthy eating, as well as to investigate possible underlying (or undiagnosed) hormonal imbalances, which can make it harder to lose weight. You might also want to consider speaking with a personal trainer to help you discover a fun fitness program that you enjoy - because, no matter what, in order to achieve and maintain any type of weight loss, exercise is required. Our vitamins and supplements are designed to help you in your quest to a daily, healthy lifestyle, however it also requires effort on your part.Where do you source your products from?
Please be advised that all of our ingredients, including flavourings, are derived from natural ingredients and are ISURA tested & certified (in order to ensure the absence of GMOs, contaminants, heavy metals and adulteration). All of our products are manufactured at a GMP facility certified by Health Canada. All raw materials come in and are tested for purity, safety and potency. If they do not meet our standards they are rejected and sent back or destroyed. We use the highest quality ingredients available, and choose organic whenever we can. Many of our products contain proprietary patented ingredients that have been clinically researched to help deliver optimal results and outstanding quality.Are your products peanut free?
Following compliance with food regulations, in order to make a negative claim such as "peanut free", it would be necessary to insure a zero tolerance of any peanut traces, including the possibility of cross contamination. Although our manufacturing facility has a policy in place for allergen control, there is no specific policy for peanuts, nor is there a specific "no peanut agreement" with our raw material suppliers.Can your products be used after the expiry date has passed?
Supplements generally keep their potency long after the expiry date. There is certainly no safety issues with consuming after the expiry date has passed however the potency degrades over longer periods of time.If a product does not specify "vegetarian capsule", then what is it made from?
These capsules are gelatin capsules sourced from either pork or beef.Are any of your products "vegan-friendly"?
Yes, AdrenaSense, EstroSense, MenoSense, BioSil, Medi-C Plus, Magnesium and MagSense (from our WomenSense and Preferred Nutrition product lines), the Healing Teas, our Ultimate Maca Energy products and the Ultimate VEGAN line are all vegan friendly.
Why can't I find any prices on your website?
Preferred Nutrition is the wholesale distribution company for the products on this website. However we sell exclusively to Health Food stores & selected Natural Pharmacies across Canada, not directly to the general public. Because the prices of our products can vary from store-to-store, we are unable to list our suggested prices on our website. We recommend you contact your local retailer and inquire about prices directly with them. Can I purchase products directly from you? I went to a health food store and the prices seem very expensive.
We distribute our products in Canada only and we sell directly to Health Food stores - since they have a personal commitment to the natural health lifestyle. Consumers are then able to buy our products from knowledgeable staff that are genuinely interested in helping people be well - people who care! Always be sure to look for in store promotions or coupons when you are making your purchases as this can help alleviate your cost concerns.Do all health food stores carry all of your products?
To find Health Food stores in your area that carry our products, please click on "Store Locator" at the top of this screen. All you have to do is enter your postal code and you will be given a list of retailers in the radius that you choose. We do recommend calling ahead to see if they stock the item you are looking for and in most cases if a store does not normally carry something, they will offer to do a special order for you.Are any of your products tested on animals?
No, there is no animal testing on any of our products.Should your supplements be taken with or without food?
Most of our products will specify directly on the bottle whether they should be taken with a meal or not. If nothing is stated, then the choice is yours as to when the best time is for you to take them. In general, however, most vitamin supplements should be taken with food because once eating starts the digestive process, enzymes and gastric juices are generated and usually the nutrients will be absorbed and assimilated better.I like the sound of many of your products. Am I able to take different formulas at the same time?
Yes, it's safe to combine various WomenSense products to help support the body in achieving optimal health. The same applies to the Preferred Nutrition line, Dr. Whitaker's formulas and Brad King's. If you are unsure of any combination, then please consult your Health Care Practitioner.I have heard that drinking green tea along with my supplements will end up flushing out all the nutrients? Is this true?
No, you are fine taking your supplements with green tea. Coffee inhibits the absorption of nutrients, but the caffeine in green tea will not pose the same problem.Can you tell me if I can combine any of your supplements with the medication(s) I am on, as prescribed by my doctor?
It is best to consult your Doctor or alternative Health Practitioner before taking any new supplements while on prescribed medication. If you have been approved to add our supplement(s) to your daily regime, then we do recommend that you space the medication and the supplements out by at least one hour.Can I take your products when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
We are not able to make any recommendations with any of our products when it comes to pregnancy or while nursing. You must contact your Health Practitioner, Naturopath or Pharmacist.I understand that you put a recommended dosage on your labels, but I can take more or less than that, right? And, really, do I have to take the product every day?
With regards to the recommended dosage, we would suggest you speak to your Doctor or Health Care Practitioner before increasing any amounts. As with any supplement you can determine your amount based on your personal preference - if you find that a product works for you immediately then you should be fine to take it just on the days you feel you need it, but again we suggest you discuss this with you MD or HP. Some consumers find that a product needs to be in their system for a few days to a few weeks before they notice results and/or feel the full benefits. I bought a bottle of your product, and although it seemed to feel lighter than usual, I didn't think much of it, until I opened the bottle and discovered that there is nowhere near the amount of capsules inside as there should have been. How can this happen?
As part of our corporate policy and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirement, our procedures incorporate routine in-process checks plus a final examination of the finished product to ensure conformance to all aspects of quality, including correct product count. There are a number of checks and balances performed by both Production and Quality Assurance personnel prior to, during, and after the packaging operations to ensure that product under-counts do not happen. Although product under-counts can happen, this occurrence is rare. Should you discover that your bottle is far below the label claim count upon opening - we recommend you return it to your point of purchase as per our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.What is your 100% money-back (customer satisfaction) guarantee?
Our 100% money-back/customer satisfaction guarantee ensures that if a customer is not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return the unused portion of the product (in its original packaging) back to their point of purchase and we will credit the Health Food store 100% of their purchase price from us. We cannot dictate if a store will give cash back or an in-store credit, nor can we override store policies already in place ~ but we do promise to credit them, regardless of the reason for the return.
