I first discovered We+People over on Instagram earlier in the year. Firstly, it was lovely to connect with Founder Zoe, who lives in London but who is also a fellow Norfolk born-and-raised lass!
Many of you who know me, will know health has become an increasingly important part of my life since having my little girl. I’m always interested in hearing about things good for your wellbeing. Anything to minimise the viruses and bugs little ones bring home from nursery and school.
I do already take regular supplements, including pro-biotics, vitamin C, B12, D and zinc. But I was curious about We+People’s ‘Woman’ supplements which promised untold powers I was most curious about!
About We People
These guys produce organic plant based formulas wrapped in a vegetarian capsule and offer a range of supplements to help support the immune system. There are currently four different types in the range: Woman (£35), Renew (£30), Man (£33) and Mind (£30).
Each bottle contains a month’s supply and you take three capsules a day with food or at bedtime is also fine. In fact, the ‘Woman’ capsules have properties which help to calm and aid sleep, so even better.
The thing I loved about this brand is that the ingredients aren’t synthesised in a lab. They are grown naturally and organically.
Do you need to stop taking your current line-up of vitamins?
There are already healthy doses of Zinc, B12 and C in the ‘Woman’ formula, which naturally comes from food, so in principle I could have reduced my vitamin intake while taking ‘Woman’.
Probiotics are always great to take in addition to any supplement, but they have actually included inulin from chicory root in their ‘Woman’ supplements which is a natural plant based prebiotic so this will feed the good bacteria.
How long will it will take to notice a difference?
These products are supplementary to a healthy diet and lifestyle, not a substitute. If you can manage to maintain your general health while using these products then you should start to see the benefits within 4 weeks. Some report improvements sooner, some later.
I did actually notice that my menstrual cycles improved in February, I had less PMT and the start of my cycle was perfectly in tune with the full moon this month! How about that.
What makes We+People different to other supplements of this kind?
These guys use the highest grade quality organic ingredients which have been tried and tested on the founders, who have noticed improvements in their own health. Their suppliers hold soil association and organic certifications and they have a firm understanding of the manufacturing processes. For example, their Maca is produced by a small farm in Peru where due care is invested into processing methods to retain nutritional content and enzyme availability.
Why is ‘Woman’ a good product?
It has the most essential vitamins and minerals that help support the complex female body in organic food form. A main benefit of ‘Woman’ is to promote hormonal balance, which in turn improves sleep, skin, immune health, menstrual conditions and better gut health.
While I was taking these, I did come down with a virus at the end of February but in reality, I wasn’t getting much sleep and our little girl was teeming with nursery bugs this winter. But for February, catching just one virus which didn’t last too long? Based on my previous winters….? That’s a pretty good result for me!
Where are the supplements made/produced?
Ingredients are sourced from different global locations through a supplier in the UK who shares the brand’s ethos and standards and the finished product is produced by the company in the UK. For example, their Wheat Grass is cultivated in Germany, and Inulin in Belgium and Acai in Colombia. The farmers are chosen for their high quality organic manufacturing processes.
The components of these supplements are incredible! They are all vegan and natural so you know they’re from an ethical source. The Woman supplement includes:
Organic Raw Cacao powder
The most beneficial of these plant extracts are called flavonoids which have an antioxidant action in the body. The cacao used here is fermented at low temperatures, preserving the enzymes and nutrients in the beans. Origin: Peru
Loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Containing antioxidant compounds. Origin: India
Organic Inulin powder
Made from Chicory Root, this is one of nature’s best sources of prebiotic fibre. Your good gut bacteria converts inulin into short-chain fatty acids, which nourishes colon cells and provide various other health benefits such as mineral absorption and inflammation control. Origin: Belgium
Organic Maca powder
Including B vitamins, calcium, zinc, iron and iodine. It’s a powerhouse when it comes to nutritional status and also contains various plant compounds, including glucosinolates and polyphenols. It’s known to increase libido in men and women and improve mood and energy. Origin: Peru
Organic Wheat Grass
Rich in a range of essential nutrients and packed with powerful antioxidants. It is particularly high in Iron and Calcium. Origin: Germany
