Women's Health

The demands we place on our bodies in today's fast-paced world has greatly increased over the last 20 years. As we become more active with careers, parenting, or volunteer work, we spend less time caring for our bodies.

Because women's bodies have special needs, these needs must be addressed every day of every month. Supplementing our bodies with essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals is more important now than ever!

The female body typically lacks the proper amounts of zinc, calcium, iron and vitamin B6. To ensure that our bodies are receiving the ideal amounts of these vital nutrients, we can supplement our diets with multi-vitamins and minerals. This is a great way to achieve optimum health.

Besides lacking certain vitamins and minerals, women's bodies go through hormone fluctuations each month. An imbalance in hormones can adversely affect moods, well-being and energy, as well as the reproductive and immune systems. Many botanicals have been used by women for hundreds of years to properly care for and balance the female body. Herbs such as chamomile, red raspberry, black cohosh and dong quai help maintain the delicate balance of female hormones.

As our bodies change, so do our needs. Focusing on our bodies' needs through proper diet and supplementation, along with exercise, should be a part of our daily routine. Taking care of our bodies now can make all the difference in how our bodies react to daily demands and how well they hold up over time.
