Nutritional supplements can fill in gaps for women’s health that are not met sufficiently through high quality food intake. Women’s health supplements include multi-vitamins and supplements to address pregnancy and specific conditions for women such as menstruation and later menopause as well as restoring balance and health for women suffering from any medical condition or disorder.
Multi-vitamins for women’s health should contain a variety of B vitamins, calcium, Vitamin K, A, D, and E, as well as magnesium, zinc and folate. Vitamin D or the sunshine vitamin is important for the body's immunity, bone health as it helps absorb calcium for bone strength and thus contributes to cancer prevention, blood sugar regulation while decreasing insulin sensitivity. Many women do not get enough vitamin D from sunshine or through foods and thus taking a supplement can help with this.
Vitamin C can protect the body against colds and also the skin barrier. The recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C is 75 mg for adult women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Vitamin B complex consisting of eight B vitamins are essential for the production of energy and red blood cells and every aspect of brain function. Most women do not have enough iron and thus taking an iron supplement is advisable. Iron supplements help prevent low energy, brain fog, thinning hair and brittle nails.
Magnesium supplements for women’s health can help boost energy, fight off fatigue and lead to more restful sleep. Probiotics from food and through supplements are important for women’s health for a healthy microbiome. Iodine is also important for women though it needs to be consumed in moderation.
Additional ingredients to look for in women’s health supplements include CoQ10, zinc, calcium, omega 3 fatty aides, vitamin K and enough fibre.
