Eve's Story

In 2018, over 14,000 women responded to a survey about their hormones, sharing insights about their health.

The picture that this survey painted is one that highlights a real and present issue with hormone health and how it impacts our minds and our bodies.

A whopping 87% of those surveyed reported experiencing signs of hormone imbalance on a regular basis. This means that most women often don’t feel like themselves. We decided that’s just not good enough.

So, with the backing of scientists and a kick-ass research team, Eve was born to both provide women with insight into their health with our at-home testing kits, and help them address concerns that arise with our new range of nutritional support products.

Over the years, our eager audience has turned into a smart, vibrant, and engaged community who learn more about their health from Eve while at the same time, help us understand the health of New Zealand women.

For people throughout New Zealand and beyond, Eve provides support, knowledge, and our shared learnings to those of us wanting to understand aspects of wellbeing, and how our hormone picture is a cornerstone of our health

Our Mission

Eve exists to give you the power to understand your health better. We are all unique; with our own genetic and hormonal make-up and understanding these pivotal parts of our health is essential to our overall well-being.

Sex and stress hormone struggles show up in many ways: low energy, menstrual issues, mental health challenges, cramping and pain, weight issues, headaches, low libido, skin concerns, and irregular periods.

Because we’re so used to living with these symptoms, it’s easy to ignore them.

But, at Eve, we don’t want you to just live with it. We want to help you understand the intricate miracle that is your body through insight into your sex and stress hormones, and empower you to take the best action towards your best health.

Everything we do and everything we share is geared toward empowering people to better understand their bodies, and have greater insight into how to support them, naturally and every day.

Opening up the conversation

The taboo around women’s health has been pervasive for too long and at Eve, we’re not here for it.

Periods, fertility, hormones, pregnancy and prevention are beacons of empowerment and without knowledge, we lose that power. An open conversation with likeminded people, at all stages of the journey, gives the confidence and self-expertise needed to be your own best friend.

All Eve platforms are a celebration of the self; a place to learn with an open mind and without judgement. We hope you like it here!

BEATRICE THORNE - CO-FOUNDER & GENERAL MANAGER

My own hormonal sh*t show after I came off the pill became our inspiration for Eve. I knew I wasn’t alone in my experiences, so we created Eve to provide support to people facing taboo health issues, who needed help. It’s vital that we open up the conversation around hormones, sex, mental wellbeing and periods so people know that they can feel better - and that they deserve to. Knowing that the work we do makes a difference to people’s lives is what gets me out of bed every day.

LISA WALKER - LEAD RESEARCHER & FORMULATOR

I entered the well-being space in 2008 - when the industry's exercise and nutrition advice was built on the assumption that women were just smaller versions of men. I watched countless women and men adopt dietary, lifestyle and training regimes that hindered their hormonal well-being and overall health. As Eve’s product formulator & lead researcher, I am ever grateful for the opportunity to help change this and elevate others through science, education, and the development of specialised product formulations that solve real problems and make a noticeable difference in people's lives.

GEORGIA BEST – EVE WELLNESS CONSULTANT

I’ve been with Eve from the beginning, and over years of training by our clinical team, alongside my Human Nutrition and Psychology qualifications, I now specialise in interpreting the data from Eve Hormone Tests. I believe every woman deserves to know more about their own body, and to know the often simple changes we can make to support our health and optimise how we feel. My real passion is translating testing data into meaningful recommendations, so people are empowered to understand their cycle, their bodies and their health.
