Alpha Venus was made for women and just to prove that we put a pretty pink stripe on the bottle. If you choose to identify as a woman but don’t have ovaries you still can’t use it to get a menstrual cycle. If you are a woman that chooses to identify as a man but have ovaries and an irregular menstrual cycle than don’t be offended by the pink stripe it may still help if we haven’t offended you with a pink stripe and the link of pink to women. If you have recently made a transition and not sure read on.
Every woman knows that we have it harder than men – we put up with a lot, men for example and other issues like monthly hormonal fluctuations. We can’t help you with the men, unfortunately. This may be “normal”, but not exactly ideal is it? Alpha Venus is creating a “new normal” which is why women love Alpha Venus. So why not feel and look the best you can? You deserve it.
