Women's Health

Women face varying challenges emotionally, mentally, and physically through adolescence, adulthood, and the natural aging process. There are many health conditions that men do not face and women do, like cervical cancer, pregnancy and pregnancy loss, menstruation, menopause, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. During important life stages like puberty, adulthood/childbearing years, and menopause, there are different nutrients that are in higher demand in the woman’s body. One example is iron. When a woman is pregnant, she needs higher amounts of iron. During menopause, needed iron amounts are significantly lower. The formulas listed in this category help give nutritional support at various aging stages, provide nutrients during pregnancy, reduce moderate side effects relating to PMS, and stabilize certain hormones that are essential for growth and development.


Estrogen & Hormonal Imbalances

There are different products on the market to assist with the various hormonal changes that a woman deals with, from puberty to menopause. Supporting the estrogen hormone production is vital for overall hormone balance. Estrogen is one of the primary hormones that encourages growth and development in women. Hormonal imbalances can have serious physical symptoms so it is very important to stay vigilant in ensuring your hormones are at optimal levels for your age group. Most women find that taking supplements with calcium, magnesium, omega-3s, and vitamin B-6 can help balance their hormones and reduce the prevalence of the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance like sudden weight loss and missed periods. Using oral contraceptives can sometimes result in vitamin depletion; taking daily supplements with these vitamins and minerals can be a good way to offset the vitamin depletion.


Prevention is Key

Taking the proper preventative measures regarding overall physical health are very important as well, especially with regular mammograms and yearly pelvic exams. Regular STI/STD testing and hormonal tests for menopause are additional preventative measures that provide insight and information into the next steps that need to be taken in order to ensure optimal health. Taking the necessary precautions while following your healthcare professional’s advice are the best ways for a woman to ensure good health throughout adulthood. Staying up to date with necessary vaccinations can also remove the risk for contracting diseases like human papillomavirus (HPV).
