Are there any side effects?

FLO is formulated with time-tested ingredients: chasteberry, dong quai, a bit of vitamin B6. Past research shows that these ingredients are rockstars when it comes to alleviating the symptoms of PMS, with low risk of side effects. The ingredients in FLO also help to balance hormones--ever heard of ‘em? They can be tricky little suckers, that’s for sure. So, we always recommend consulting your physician before taking any of our products.

How many gummies should I take?

Two FLO gummies a day, every day, sends PMS symptoms packing.

How long till FLO starts working its magic?

We recommend taking FLO for at least two menstrual cycles to begin feeling the full effect. (Here’s the part where your dad would say something like “Rome wasn’t built in a day” or “It takes 6 months to build a Rolls Royce and only 13 hours to build a Toyota”...but what the heck do dads know about periods?) Dad-isms aside...it takes time, but it’ll be worth it.

Can I take FLO while on birth control?

We always recommend consulting your physician prior to taking FLO, especially if you are currently taking any medication. That goes for pills, patches, arm implants, hormonal IUDs, and any other forms of contraception.

Can I take FLO if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant (congrats!!) or breastfeeding, we do not recommend taking FLO. Furthermore, if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition, consult your physician before taking any of our products.

Can FLO be taken with prescription medication?

Can’t stress this one enough...if you’re currently taking medication or have a medical condition, talk to your physician before using our products!

Does FLO work for menopause?

Absolutely! There is a ton of research that supports that the ingredients of FLO can reduce mood swings, hot flashes, acne, and help to balance hormones overall*. [READ MORE]

Can men take FLO?

Chasteberry and vitamin B6 have shown to be beneficial for men as well. But we’re guessing the lady in your life would not appreciate you skimming her FLO supply...so hands off, silly boys.

Oops, I forgot to take my FLO vitamins. Will it still work?

First off, when they taste that good, how could you forget!? Second...you’ll be good, just try to take them ASAP :)

How/where should I store my FLO?

Close to your heart. Also, “a cool, dry location” like your pantry works too.

Ingredients

What is chasteberry?

Chasteberry is a potent, tiny berry from Vitex agnus-castus, a flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. It has been used for over 2,000 years as an herbal medicine, and has been shown to decrease symptoms of PMS in up to 93% of women. [READ MORE]

What is dong quai?

Dong quai’s official name is Angelica sinensis, but it’s also commonly referred to as “female ginseng.” The herb hails from the same plant family as carrots, parsley, dill and celery. It is an antispasmodic (which is a fancy way of saying it relieves cramps), and has also been shown to balance estrogen levels, and support the nervous system to ease anxiety and boost energy.

What is vitamin B6?

Also known as pyridoxine, vitamin B6 is a form of vitamin B that’s found naturally in foods like pistachios and avocados. Vitamin B6 has been shown to reduce a broad range of PMS symptoms, but one of the more notable ones is premenstrual depression. [READ MORE]

Is FLO vegan? Has FLO ever been tested on animals?

Yes, FLO is vegan. And NO, FLO has never been tested on animals. In fact, Bobby trying out about a thousand variations of berry-flavored gummies was the closest we ever got to animal testing.

Is FLO dairy/gluten/nut/soy-free?

Yes, yes, yes and yes. Drama-free, too.

Are there any artificial flavors, colors, or dyes in FLO?

LOL...we would never.

What flavor is FLO?

FLO is strawberry flavored. It’s sweet enough to squash cravings, and ring-shaped because we’re committed...to making your period way more tolerable.

Is this vitamin non-GMO?

You think we have time for the GMO BS? No way. Non-GMO forever, babes!

Is the vitamin bottle BPA free?

You bet! We wouldn’t have it any other way :)

Is FLO FDA Approved?

By law, the FDA does not approve dietary supplements. But, the FDA does regulate both dietary supplements and dietary ingredients. At FLO, we follow what the FDA established for dietary supplements in 2007 called "current Good Manufacturing Practice" (cGMP) regulations requiring that manufacturers evaluate their products through testing identity, purity, strength, and composition. We not only tested for stability with our manufacturers, but also did 3rd-party testing for potency of active ingredients, adulterants like heavy metals and microbes, allergens, rancidity and other unwanted contaminants. As a consumer, we think it’s important to do your own due diligence as well. Learn more here.

I see multiple charges on my account. What gives?

If initial attempts to process your payment either failed or declined, they might show up on your bank statement as authorization holds; meaning they aren’t legit charges, and should disappear from your statement in a few business days.

Once updated, we’ll ship your FLO, send over billing/shipping confirmation, and you’ll be that much closer to sending those PMS symptoms packing!
