Your Super Detox


Your Super's Moon Balance is a plant-based superfood powder designed to support hormone balance and overall well-being. It's specifically formulated for women and contains a blend of six superfoods known for their hormone-balancing properties.

Following the success of their first clinical study with Citruslabs, Your Super decided to run another clinical trial to investigate a second product.

Study design

This was an open-label observational single-group clinical trial to study the efficacy of the product and its effect on common PMS and menstrual symptoms, as well as health-related biomarkers. Participants were required to complete regular study surveys and take both finger-prick blood samples and saliva samples. All of these samples were collected by the participants themselves using at-home tests and were mailed to the testing facility. 

Participants were asked to complete a baseline menstrual well-being survey at day 4 or 5 of the bleed week of the first period that occurs, provide blood (finger prick) and saliva samples, and track their sleep for the entirety of the bleed week (approximately 5 days). 

Once the menstrual phase (bleed week) has ended, participants began consuming 1 teaspoon daily of Your Super’s Moon Balance prepared in a beverage of plant-based milk. During the next period, the participants took a menstrual well-being survey to track progress on day 4 or 5 of the bleed week. Participants also tracked their sleep during the entirety of the bleed week via a wearable sleep monitor. 

During the next period, participants completed their final menstrual well-being survey on day 4 or 5 of the bleed week and tracked their sleep for the entirety of the bleed week. Additionally, participants again provided blood (finger prick) and saliva samples on day 4 or 5 of the bleed week. 

Study onboarding phase
Week 1-3: Awaiting period bleed week.
Week 4: First period (baseline) bleed week: Baseline questionnaire, blood/saliva sampling, sleep tracking.
