Benefits of The Seed Cycle Subscription:
Our Seed Cycle Subscription has been designed with convenience and consistency in mind and ensures that your seeds are delivered to you every 28 days. This ensures that you are able to continue seed cycle with your phases with minimum interruptions or breaks which in turn will provide you with the most consistent and noticeable results.
How the Seed Cycle Subscription Works
Each month you'll receive everything you need to assist you on your seed cycling journey. You can choose between the Phase 1 (follicular and new moon) and Phase 2 (luteal and full moon) Signature Blends or The Seed Cycle Bake Mix Duo and you are able to switch this each month to your liking.
A subscription also provides you with full control of your membership through our dedicated customer portal. This private portal allows you to modify your seed selections and gives you the flexibility to pause or cancel your subscription at any time after the 3 month minimum period; as well as updating your postage and payment details.
Whilst it is not uncommon to see some improvements from seed cycling within your first month, the reality is, that to truly begin to realise the benefits of seed cycling usually requires a commitment of at least 3-4 months. Remember – we are trying to naturally and progressively balance our hormones to eliminate issues and problems which our bodies have developed over many months and usually years.
For this reason – we have developed and refined our subscription packages to cater for this and it is targeted at women who truly want to commit to seed cycling to realise its benefits over a sustainable and long term period.
The added benefit of a subscription package is that you receive a monthly discount on your seed purchase, and the shipping to your door step is absolutely free!
The Seed Cycle Phase 1 Blend
Crafted using organic pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds, this blend delivers a powerful dose of Omega 3 fatty acids and essential nutrients including zinc and selenium.
Together, these seeds naturally support healthy hormone levels. Plus this blend provides a great source of fibre and lignans which foster healthy estrogen metabolism and may prevent estrogen dominance.
Ideal for women during the Follicular Phase of their cycle. The pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds contained in this blend may be beneficial for women experiencing PCOS and may lower the occurrence of excess hair growth and acne. Plus, these seeds can assist with pre-menstrual breast tenderness.
How to use:
From day 1 (first day of your period) to day 14 (ovulation) of your cycle, add 1 scoop (two tablespoons) of this blend to your morning smoothie, yoghurt bowl, porridge or even your salads and soups.
Alternatively, if you follow the lunar calendar, start taking this blend on the first day of a new moon.
Phase 2 Blend
A curated mix of both sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, this blend naturally supports healthy hormone balance. Each seed is brimming with lignans and Omega 6 fatty acids that work together to keep our estrogen levels in check. Plus, the sunflower seeds in this blend deliver a great source of selenium and Vitamin E which may assist with liver detoxification.
Our Phase 2 Blend is perfect for women during the Luteal phase of their cycle. These seeds are rich in Vitamin E, playing a big role in balancing our nervous and endocrine system to restore optimal hormone levels in the body.
How to use:
From day 15 (ovulation) to day 28 of your cycle, add 1 scoop (two tablespoons) of this blend to your morning smoothie, yoghurt bowl, porridge or even your salads and soups.
Alternatively, if you follow the lunar calendar, start taking this blend on the first day of a full moon.
Historical studies over time have shown that the lunar cycle (moon phases) can be used to regulate a woman's’ cycle and that the moon’s influence on our bodies can include things such as promoting the release of neurohormones, sex hormones and melatonin.
For menopausal and postmenopausal women or women without a regular menstrual cycle, it’s recommended to use the phases of the moon as a guide to cycle dates.
Rather than commencing our signature Phase 1 on the first day of your menstrual cycle, seed cycling can commence on the first day of a new moon cycle (lunar cycle). You would switch to Phase 2 on a full moon and continue consuming the blend until the next new moon.
