Womens Health

Women have clearly defined nutritional needs that change as they age and pass through various cycles. Women’s health can suffer through following low-calorie or “fad” diets to lose weight and because of the stress of trying to juggle, in many cases, a family, a job, and a home. Women can become deficient in a number of vitamins and minerals during this time and would be well advised to add a health supplement to their diet.

Women who take the contraceptive pill will require different supplements than women who are experiencing the menopause. Breast-feeding and pregnant women both have massive nutritional requirements, and menstruating women are different again.

Womens Health – The Menopause

The menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years and may be accompanied by many uncomfortable emotional and physical symptoms.
