There can be several reasons as to why a woman of any age may choose to supplement her diet with multivitamins.
It could be because of the fact that she is working all day, and her fast-paced schedule doesn’t allow her to satiate her body’s needs with nutritious meals.
Maybe, she wants healthy nails, hair, and skin, or she wants to make sure that her immune system is strengthened, and that her brain is sharp.
It could also be because she exercises on the daily – which raises the body’s requirements for nutrients.
She could also just be looking to combat some age-related deficiencies that come coupled with menopause – such as osteoporosis.
Whatever the reason may be, a dietary professional can help guide anyone through the process of taking multivitamin supplements. They will inform you to keep in mind the potential hazards of these taken in combination with over the counter pharmaceuticals.
Here are a few combinations recommended for women in accordance with their specific age groups.
For teenage girls
The key aspects of a teenager’s life revolve around the building of immunity, making sure that the bones are healthy, and to ensure that she is full of energy. Here is a list of key nutrients that you can look for while purchasing multivitamins as a teen:
Vitamin A: for healthy eyes
Vitamin B: for a good supply of energy
Vitamin C: for immunity
Vitamin D: for healthy bones, teeth, and calcium absorption
Vitamin E: for healthy nails, hair, and skin
For women in 20s-30s
Often, women in their 20s and 30s lead hectic lives juggling between work and home, trying to find the perfect balance. In this process, they miss out on being able to consume nutritious meals on a daily basis. This may lead to detrimental effects in the long run. When looking for multivitamins, make sure that they contain:
Vitamin B: improved mood & mental focus
Vitamin D: strengthened immune system
Magnesium: better bodily functions
Fish oil: healthy brain
Milk thistle: keeps liver in check
Astaxanthin: glowing skin
Iron: it is good to keep in mind that iron should only be taken IF required, else excess amounts of it may prove to be damaging.
For women in their 40s
Women in their forties go through massive changes in their bodies due to hormonal complexities, such as the pre-menopausal stage – there are a host of vitamins that a woman of this age requires to maintain her feeling her usual top form;
