I’m so excited because Agni has just launched a complete women’s health box for healthy hormones and better periods. What I really like about Agni is that they work with a Medical Advisory Board and top chefs to make their products, so if you’ve ever wished your supplements tasted delicious, you’ll really love their new box. The Complete Women’s Health Box has five awesome products in it – my personal favorite is the double chocolate chip cookies. They’re the kind of cookies that make you want to eat the whole box in one sitting. I also really love the seasonings which make seed cycling super easy, plus they turn your avocado toast into otherworldly goodness. Everything in the box is gluten-free, dairy-free, and totally delicious.

To try out their new box or learn more, visit AgniForAll.com and use code PERIODPARTY for 15% off.
