What are the best vitamins for women? What sort of women vitamins should I take? These are common questions that can generate a variety of answers. In today’s world the term “vitamins” includes vitamins plus: minerals, phyto-nutrients, amino acids, enzymes, herbs and other nutrient forms. Choosing the right combination of all of those is a daunting task..
An average person’s healthy, daily diet includes 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables and anywhere from 40-80 grams of protein. Yet it is reported that only 50% of women eat fruit..about 33% of women are deficient in their protein intake, and only 20% eat leafy green veggies more than once every 4 days.
You may also be surprised by the fact that today’s vegetables contain significantly less nutrition than the vegetables grown and eaten 50 years ago.
This lack of nutrients, through choice and availability, eventually causes marginal deficiencies. In turn, these deficiencies trigger health issues so common that most people do not recognize them as health issues at аƖƖ, but rather accept them as everyday inconveniences of modern life….some of these include:
- Mood swings
- Muscle weakness
Long term nutrient deficiencies place the average person at risk for more serious diseases like cancer, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, and CVD (heart disease).
So, if the average diet is unable to supply the nutrients and vitamins needed, what can women do to make sure they are as healthy as possible? There is a simple solution – find a source of sensible supplementation.
Take quality, science-based supplements formulated with the correct balance of micro-nutrients, trace minerals, and vitamins for women. Then a woman can keep her body in balance, maintain higher energy levels, and greatly reduce risks of developing many serious degenerative diseases.
Before you rush out and purchase mega doses of multi vitamins and mineral formulations, remember that a reasonable diet, may lessen the amount of supplementation your diet needs. Most people do not need super high doses of any vitamin or mineral. Make no mistake, vitamin intake is important, but vitamins are not nutrients, and can never be viewed as a replacement for a healthy, daily diet.
Vitamin supplements often contain unnecessarily large quantities of certain vitamins anԁ minerals. Usually, these are the cheapest forms of ingredients available. Capsule and tablet vitamin products are also created with filler and binder products that bulk up the tablet and give no supplemental value.
Vitamins A,B,C,E,and D along with folic acid, Co-Q 10, magnesium and zinc….are considered the “bed-rock” vitamins of an active life.
I use and endorse Women Vitamins: A-Z Complete. a liquid multi-vitamin for women with 11 vitamins and 70 trace minerals. It is quickly and easily absorbed by your body, has no unnecessary fillers or sugars, and does a great job of supplying a sensible vitamin product.
