“I sleep better and my skin looks better” – Sibyl
Many women suffer from a variety of symptoms each month that can’t always be directly linked to our cycles.
This was the case with Sibyl, one of our Guud ambassadors. Sybil suffered from seborrheic eczema that she thought might be related to her NuvaRing and how it interacted with her hormones. When she went to her dermatologist for help, he prescribed a round of antibiotics, but unfortunately, he didn’t look at the underlying cause.
The antibiotics helped, but as soon as she stopped taking them, her symptoms came back. Staying on antibiotics for the long term was clearly not sustainable so Sybil needed a new plan.
Thankfully, she found Guud and now she no longer needs antibiotics. She’s now regularly taking Guud supplements and no longer has a NuvaRing and her skin has never looked better.
"My eczema is finally gone"
“I was suffering from seborrheic eczema around my nose and eyes, so I went to the dermatologist for it. I was prescribed a cream and antibiotics. But since I stopped taking my contraception and started taking Guud supplements, my eczema is almost completely gone.”
Eczema has many causes, but often it is due to an overstimulation of your immune system. The cause is often difficult to determine - it can be due to certain foods, but also due to stress or a hypersensitivity to certain products. Eczema is often treated with creams, but unfortunately, this does not treat the actual cause.
Several studies show:
- Supplements of vitamin D, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids can improve eczema symptoms.
- That a deficiency of vitamin D plays a role in the development of eczema.
- Zinc and selenium have been linked to health claims that support the skin.
- Arctium lappa helps with inflamed skin.
"Rested, better sleep and better in my own skin"
Not only does Sibyl now have better skin, but she also feels better too.
“Since taking Guud supplements, I feel much better about myself. I sleep better, my skin looks better, and I feel more rested. I am also 100 percent sure that I am getting what I need.”

"In tune with my body"
When Sibyl stopped using the NuvaRing, it took a while for her cycle to start again. This is normal when your body is used to artificial hormones. It often takes a while to get your own hormones back on track.
Often it is harmless, but we know how stressful it can be to have a period that is MIA. As Sybil discovered, being in tune with your body is so empowering.
“I'm thirty now and somehow I feel like a woman for the first time in my life,” she said. “That is a very special feeling. I can hardly describe it. I am more in tune with my body, and also with my cycle.”
Fierce foursome: Sibyl takes all four Guud supplements
Sibyl takes all four supplements from Guud: Flow, Inside, Vibes and Glow. All supplements are formulated so that you can safely take them without exceeding the daily recommended amount of any one ingredient.
Sibyl took Guud Glow daily for three months. Now that her skin is better thanks to Guud Glow, she only takes this supplement during the second half of her cycle when her skin is more sensitive to eczema and breakouts.
The trio Flow, Inside and Vibes is the perfect combination for every woman who wants to feel guud every day of the month.
Guud Flow + Inside contains all the Guud stuff you need to support you in all areas: your mood, mind, cycle, fertility and pregnancy.
Guud Vibes also helps fight tiredness by helping you get a good night’s rest.
With this combo, you'll always be ready for whatever life throws at you!

Frequently asked questions
Do you have problems with your period? Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions about our supplements:
What can Guud do for my skin?
If you’re well past puberty and still suffering from acne, listen up. You might have hormonal acne. During your cycle, your hormones change. Some women are more sensitive to these hormonal fluctuations than others and develop acne in response. It is also possible that your cycle is not optimal and you have more extreme fluctuations which might be causing your body to react in a more extreme way.
Guud Glow and Guud Inside are the perfect supplements for calmer skin. Guud Glow helps you to feel beautiful, powerful and strong throughout your cycle. This natural supplement contains everything you need for glowing skin, healthy hair and strong nails. Guud Inside helps you maintain a healthy heart and brain and is full of Omega 3. Healthy fats such as Omega-3 are important to reduce symptoms linked to your cycle.

Should I take supplements now that I've stopped using my birth control?
Yes, we definitely recommend it. To get the full low-down on returning to a natural cycle, check out our blog about it: Quitting the pill? How to get your body back on track.
I don't sleep well. What can I do?
Make sure you have a good sleep routine, and realize that your sleep changes throughout the month (Read more about it in our blog post called Sleep and Your Cycle - How Are They Connected) There are minerals and herbs that can help you sleep better. An important and safe mineral that helps you sleep better is magnesium.
Magnesium helps regulate the stress hormone cortisol, and helps produce your sleep hormone melatonin. If you take magnesium, the production of the stress hormone decreases, so that you can sleep more deeply. Think of it as a non-harmful sleeping pill.
Our Guud Vibes supplements contain magnesium from algae (Aquamin), magnesium citrate and bisglycinate. Magnesium is often sold as magnesium oxide, but it is difficult for your body to absorb, and it often causes many stomach and intestinal problems.
The body absorbs magnesium citrate and magnesium bisglycinate better. These are naturally bound magnesium forms. These forms therefore give better results, and you also avoid the risk of stomach and intestinal problems. Magnesium Citrate and Bisglycinate are used in high quality magnesium supplements like Guud Vibes.
How long should I take the supplements?
For the best results, we recommend taking the supplements for at least 3 to 6 months.
What should I look for when choosing supplements?
With so many products available, we know it can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, we did the hard work for you and wrote down exactly what to look for. Read our post on exactly what to look for when choosing a supplement.
What else can I do?
We see our supplements as something to add to a healthy lifestyle. What exactly is a healthy lifestyle, you ask? It’s all about eating a balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding stress as much as possible. Sometimes, lifestyle changes are all that’s needed to have a big impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
