The nutritional support value of women's multivitamins
Women's health is an important topic and women's vitamins and multivitamins play a major role in establishing a healthy immune system, bone health, red blood cell production and energy production. Essential vitamins taken in the form of daily multivitamins can help women navigate menstrual cycles, pregnancy, motherhood, dietary restrictions and aging in a healthy and safe way. Amcal multivitamins for women contain dozens of vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthier body, brighter mind, and emotional wellbeing.
Superfoods have always existed, and many superfoods are major ingredients in Amcal women's vitamin supplements. Intake of vitamins, minerals and nutrients is determined by diet, making it important to eat the right amount of whole foods, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and other important foodstuffs.
However, no two women are the same in a world where vegan, vegetarian, and many other dietary and culinary options exist, so here are a few ways women's vitamins can support you if you are missing out on essential nutrition.
- General health and wellbeing: Dietary supplements are designed to supplement your diet. They should not be used to replace the variety of foods found in a healthy diet, nor should multivitamins or other dietary supplements be used as an alternative to medicine prescribed by your healthcare professional. However, a woman's nutritional needs do change as she moves through different stages of life, so it is important to target a woman's multivitamin that suits your specific needs.
Recent study data from Swinburne University, Australia, has shown that daily intake of a vitamin supplement can have beneficial effects on stress, anxiety and fatigue. This is well known to healthcare professionals who specialise in nutritional support, and Amcal is proud to deliver better outcomes with the best women's multivitamins on the market from well-known manufacturers such as Swisse, Elevit and Remifemin.
- Your body's metabolism: If you are lacking proper nutrition from a balanced diet, your body's metabolism will not function optimally. Vitamins for women's health are designed to correct deficiencies and ensure adequate nutrition that will help prevent lethargy, unintentional weight gain and other poor outcomes. The best vitamin supplements for body metabolism include:
- B vitamins
- Vitamin D
Immune system and concentration: You can strengthen your immune system and improve concentration with vitamin supplements. We make it simple and affordable at Amcal Chemists. Restoring a healthy balance is possible and the vitamins and minerals your body needs are all contained in the best women's vitamins. These include:
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Folic acid
Decrease stress and increase energy levels: with a healthy body comes a healthy mind. Women's health vitamin and dietary supplements are the holistic approach to making long-term improvements toward decreased stress and increased energy levels. A daily multivitamin supplement as recommended by your dietitian or Amcal pharmacist will help correct deficiencies of essential vitamins required for a healthy, happy and active life.
What are the best multivitamins for a woman?
It is important to consider a woman's age when it comes to taking multivitamins. There are various multivitamin products available at Amcal, all targeting women at various stages of growth and maturity. You will need to adjust your diet along with your vitamin intake when nutritional demands are placed on your body at different ages. Here are a few pointers.
19-30 years of age
Calcium: builds strong bones, plus healthy muscles, nerves and heart. Building bone density early in life will protect you in later years.
Vitamin D: essential for bone health and can potentially reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease. Vitamin D also promotes calcium absorption.
Iron: helps increase healthy red blood cells. Women with heavy menstrual bleeding and pregnant women benefit greatly from iron supplements. Too little iron can lead to anemia.
31-50 years of age
Folate: this B vitamin is naturally present in a wide variety of foods such as leafy green vegetables. However, if you become pregnant or plan to become pregnant, it is recommended to take folic acid supplements to ensure your baby's development.
Magnesium: this essential vitamin supports hundreds of functions throughout the body, such as formation of teeth and bones, growth, cognitive development and assistance with a healthy pregnancy. It also helps prevent the onset of osteoporosis.
50 years and older
Calcium: as menopause approaches, your body produces less estrogen, potentially increasing the risk of heart disease and other medical complications. A daily multivitamin with balanced calcium concentration can help keep you strong and healthy for longer.
Vitamin D: this is essential for the absorption of calcium for maintaining strong bones. The daily intake can increase as a person ages.
Fish oil: this is a rich source of essential omega-3 fatty acids that can reduce the risk and symptoms of various disorders that include heart attack, stroke, some cancers and rheumatoid arthritis.
Vitamin B12: this vitamin assists your body in making red blood cells, while also keeping the brain and nervous system healthy. Almost all quality multivitamins contain vitamin B12.
Some women don't realise the critical nature of micronutrients for overall health. They can increase energy, manage stress, and keep your autoimmune system strong for fighting off diseases. Here are five vitamins that every woman should take.
- Vitamin B12:the ability to absorb vitamin B12 from food naturally decreases over time, making B12 an essential vitamin to help you fight fatigue and convert food into energy.
- Folic acid: this is an important daily multivitamin supplement for women who are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. Folic acid is known to reduce the risk of certain neurological problems.
- Vitamin D:vitamin D deficiency can lead to serious health concerns. Vitamin D helps to regulate the immune system, manage body weight and reduce to risk of many diseases.
- Magnesium:low magnesium levels affect detoxification and detox pathways in the body. Magnesium is also known to alleviate problems associated with sleep disorders.
- Vitamin K:heart disease is a potential danger for anyone as they age. An increased intake of vitamin K helps to lower the risk of cardiovascular illness. Vitamin K also builds strong bones and helps regulate blood clotting.
