Daily vitamins for women

Whole Food Supplements Every Woman Should Consider Adding to Her Diet

Most experts agree that eating a well-balanced, varied whole-food diet is the best way to get the nutrients you need in order to thrive. That means eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and protein sources like beans, tofu, fish, and poultry.

But if you are unable to eat certain foods, follow a restrictive diet, have increased nutrient needs, or have underlying medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption, health supplements for women can help close any nutrient gaps.

Which Vitamins And Supplements Should Women Take Daily?

The type of supplement that women require will depend on their individual needs and diet, health status, and stage of life. Women have increased nutrient needs during certain periods of their life, increased nutrient needs during certain periods of their life, including in stressful situations, life changes, increased physical and mental performance, as we age, when our immune system is under attack, not to mention pregnancy and breastfeeding, and even throughout our monthly cycle. Whole food based health supplements can be helpful to meet those elevated needs and at the same time provide energy, improve the immune system and aging support. 

However, not all health supplements for women are created equal. It is therefore essential to read the label of a supplement carefully to confirm that there are no mystery artificial ingredients, or fillers that only wreak havoc on women's hormones and overall health. For example, iron is generally considered important for healthy fertility, prenatal and postpartum health, and cognitive health; thus, the whole foods within Women’s DAILY+ from Living Alchemy that contain all of the important cofactors, including iron derived from Koji Fermentation can be beneficial to a woman before and after her pregnancy.

Whenever possible, choose daily health supplements for women containing fermented whole foods and the following 4 key vitamins and minerals:

1- Iron

Iron is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in adult women. In fact, many women do not get enough iron from food alone. Heavy menstruation, being active, and pregnancy are all factors that can cause women to experience low iron levels. This can put them at risk for iron-deficiency anemia

Blood loss during women’s period also depletes the body's iron stores; it's particularly important for menstruating women to eat iron-rich foods or take daily supplements that contain iron-rich ingredients such as fermented koji, and organic raspberry leaf, a herb which has shown to help many women experiencing menstrual irregularities.

Our Women's Iron is safe and specifically formulated to support women during menstruation, when trying to conceive, pregnant and breastfeeding.

2- Calcium

Calcium helps women protect and build strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Calcium is very important for females starting in their teenage years. As much as 90% of adult bone mass is achieved by age 18, and peak bone mass usually occurs in the late 20s. By the time a woman is in her 30s, her bone mass usually begins to decline. 

Menopausal women may benefit from using health supplements that include calcium (or ingredients that include calcium, like moringa, chaga and nettle), as bone density naturally decreases with age due to reduced estrogen levels. Another option is to use daily supplements like Women’s DAILY +, which feature natural herbs like red clover. These supplements can aid women dealing with menstrual irregularities and support a smoother transition into perimenopause and menopause. They may also bring about positive improvements in libido, mood, sleep quality, skin health, and bone strength.

3- Vitamin C

Vitamin C facilitates normal growth and development and repairs bodily tissues, bones, and teeth. It functions as an antioxidant to block some of the damage caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C also helps your body produce collagen—an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. It’s important to note that vitamin C can’t be stored in the body, so you actually do need to take it every day, whether through food or daily whole food health supplements. 

Women should consider taking daily health supplements that contain organic and whole food ingredients such organic acerola cherries. This fruit is packed with phytonutrients including carotenoids, flavonoids, anthocyanins and has one of the highest amounts of vitamin C for antioxidant support. It can boost immunity, collagen production, protect from free radical damage, inflammatory support, offer mucous membrane protection, and alleviate cold and flu symptoms.

4- B Vitamins

Having a deficiency in B vitamins can cause fatigue. This is because vitamins like B6 and B12 help the body convert food into fuel for energy. They also contribute to healthy skin, hair, and eyes. B vitamins are recommended to all women because they have a host of benefits from energy to hormone balance. Plus, they provide anti-aging support by maintaining proper functioning of the nervous system, metabolism, muscle tone, and a sharp mind. 

Spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables are the best sources of B vitamins. Therefore, choosing daily health supplements for women that include the benefits of these ingredients in its whole food and fermented form is preferable.
