I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2014 when I started my journey to becoming a mom. Deep down, I always knew that my path to motherhood wasn’t going to be as simple and straightforward as I would like it to be, but I didn’t expect to be diagnosed with a hormonal disorder that would challenge me in the way PCOS has.

After being on birth control for years and never having a natural menstrual cycle, it was no surprise to me that when I stopped taking birth control and started trying to conceive, things weren’t quite functioning correctly.

Back then, I didn’t know as much as I do now about nutrition, fitness, hormones, and how they all work together and play a role in how the female body functions. I also didn’t truly understand the importance of having a healthy monthly menstrual cycle.

Fast forward to today, and although you could say that my journey with infertility has a happy ending, I still battle hormone-related issues frequently. Thankfully, there’s so much more information and resources out there now to help women who, like me, deal with infertility and hormonal imbalances. 

As a result of my journey and struggles, I am now passionate about sharing my experience, knowledge, and resources with other women who might be walking a similar path. I’m also always staying up to date with the latest supplements and products marketed to women with hormone disorders like me.

I will always advocate for a healthy, balanced, nutrient-dense diet and smart exercise plan first and foremost, however, sometimes adding supplements to your routine can make a world of difference in your health journey. As always, speak with your Dr. before starting any new supplement or medication.

In this article, I’m reviewing Knowell, a women’s reproductive health supplement that contains 28 ingredients to support hormonal balance and optimize reproductive function.

What Is Knowell?

Knowell is a reproductive and hormonal support supplement that’s designed to help women with cycle regulation, PMS symptoms, hormonal acne, hair loss, and fertility. This formula contains 28 ingredients that include premium vitamins & minerals, probiotics, and botanicals that are optimally dosed to work synergistically with your body.

The idea is that the nutrients found in Knowell will provide your body with the nutritional foundation for your hormones to flourish. Nutrient deficiencies have been shown to be one of the major factors in many hormone-related disorders, which is where Knowell might be able to come in and fill that gap. I certainly realized this on my hormone journey as well, which ultimately lead me to pursue a certification in nutrition.

Knowell’s goal was to create the most comprehensive women’s reproductive support supplement on the market, helping women with a variety of common female reproductive problems. It’s designed to allow women the ability to work with their hormones, not against them.

Founded by Katie Fitzgerald, MS Clinical Nutrition, NYU, and Peter Boyles, a woman’s health advocate, Knowell is on a mission to change the way women deal with hormone-related issues so that they can live their best lives.

What’s Inside?

There are a total of 28 ingredients in Knowell, which can be a good or bad thing. I say this because the more ingredients there are in a supplement, the more there’s a risk for complications or interactions. As always, speak with your healthcare provider before starting any new supplements or medications.

That said, it’s evident that Knowell took its formulation very seriously and did their due diligence to ensure that the ingredients were proven and efficaciously dosed to be a real solution for women who are struggling with hormone and fertility issues.

Some of the ingredients inside Knowell have been rigorously tested by Western scientists while others have deep roots in Eastern medicine, but the common thread is that they all have the power to influence your hormonal health for the better.

Here’s a list of all 28 ingredients found in Knowell:

Who Should Try Knowell?

Knowell might be a good option for women who are dealing with hormonal issues relating to their menstrual cycle, birth control pills, and PCOS. Women who are seeking to supplement their already healthy lifestyle with additional nutrients shown to regulate female hormones might find the symptom relief they are seeking by adding Knowell to their diet.

Knowell is best suited for women who already have a handle on their basic lifestyle habits like eating a healthy, balanced, and macro-friendly meal plan, and who are ready to take their health to the next level by adding the nutritional support of an advanced hormone-optimizing supplement like Knowell.

Knowell might be a good fit for women who want to:

  • Make PMS less problematic each month (bloating & cramps)
  • Regulate their menstrual cycles
  • Counterbalance the side effects of hormonal birth control
  • Optimize their efforts when trying to conceive
  • Manage their PCOS symptoms
  • Work with their hormones, not against them

Who Shouldn’t?

Women should always consult with their doctor before starting to take any new supplements to ensure it’s a safe and effective option for them. I always recommend that women take a close look at the ingredients in supplements that they are considering to ensure that there’s no risk of adverse side effects or complications.

Women who are already taking a hormone-balancing product or daily multivitamin should check with their doctor before adding Knowell to their routine. 

What I Like About Knowell

After doing research into Knowell and getting to know the brand as a whole, I am very impressed with quite a few aspects. First, I really appreciate that Knowell is focused on one product and that its mission is to make it the best option for women dealing with hormonal imbalances. There are a ton of options out there for women these days, which is great, but many brands spread themselves too thin and it leads me to question how much integrity and focus they can pour into each of their products.

I also like that Knowell includes a variety of ingredients that support your whole body. With vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and botanicals, women can reduce the number of daily supplements they take and get all of their needs covered with one daily supplement.

Finally, the number of real, positive reviews and testimonials from customers is great to see. I read through nearly 200 reviews on Knowell’s website from real women who are experiencing real results and relief, which is always an encouraging sign.

Things to Consider

While I am undoubtedly impressed with Knowell, there’s no such thing as a perfect supplement There are a few things that I would encourage you to consider as you decide if Knowelll is a good fit for you.

First, the daily recommended dosage is 4 capsules. For some, this might not be a big deal at all, however, for others, taking capsules is difficult and 4 feels like a lot. That said, Knowell does offer that you can break up your dosage throughout the day, taking fewer than 4 capsules at once if you find that helpful.

Second, I did not note any information on Knowell’s website or bottle regarding third-party testing. Typically, in order to put my full seal of approval on a supplement, I like to see that it’s 3rd-party tested for quality and safety.

Lastly, and this is going to sound redundant, I highly encourage women to get their health and fitness in line before adding a supplement. There’s no supplement that can replace a healthy diet and exercise routine. You must have your foundational habits in place first to realize the full benefits of adding a supplement like Knowell to your routine.

Final Thoughts

Although I have a pretty firm handle on my PCOS symptoms at this point in my life, there was a time when a supplement like Knowell would have been a welcomed addition to my routine. I know firsthand the struggles that accompany hormone-related symptoms in women and believe wholeheartedly that, with the right nutrition, movement, and supplement plan, we can ease and even eliminate those symptoms.

If you’re seeking relief from PMS, PCOS, irregular periods, infertility, hormonal acne, and hair loss, trying Knowell might be a good fit for you. We all deserve to feel our best, and I am grateful for companies like Knowell who are putting in the work to make that possible by dedicating their resources to making products that are effective for women.
