The Ultimate Health Guide for Women

Many nutrients and vitamins are crucial for everyone no matter the age. However, as we are getting older our bodies require more. Women, especially, have to pay more attention to their bodies than men. So, here are some things you need to consider:

Vitamin A

This vitamin is a great antioxidant which can better your immune system. It can also improve your vision, lower the risks of heart disease, and it helps to slow down the skin aging process. However, it could be toxic if taken in big amounts, so be careful.

Vitamin B

Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid are some of the most important types for your body. B6 is important because it enables your brain to work properly and to convert all the food you eat into energy. However, this vitamin could be toxic if you take a lot of it at once, so just try taking it through nutritious food like potatoes, fish, avocadoes, cereals, and meats. B12 also plays a big role when it comes to metabolism, and you can get this vitamin from cheese, fish, eggs, milk, and meat. Folic acid helps with building a healthy brain and spinal cord. What is more, it can prevent the changes in DNA and causes of cancer. This acid is especially important for pregnant women.

Vitamin C

Women in their 30s are prone to developing an iron-deficiency anemia (low levels of iron). If you suffer from this, you will feel tired all the time, especially during your menstrual cycles, since you are losing a lot of blood. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron from food or supplements. Other than that, it can prevent heart disease and boost your immune system. What is more, it helps the wounds heal faster and can prevent the occurrence of wrinkles. The best sources of vitamin C are strawberries, broccoli, oranges, and kiwis.

Vitamin D

This vitamin (more precisely hormone) helps calcium and phosphorus get into the bloodstream and to your bones. When there is a deficiency of vitamin D in your organism it will take those two minerals from your bones, which will become weaker, and that can lead to osteoporosis. Foods that are rich with vitamin D are eggs and fish (salmon, mackerel, and sardines). In addition to protecting your bones, vitamin D is believed to prevent breast and ovarian cancer as well as offering protection from diabetes.

Calcium

It is crucial to mention how important calcium is for the strength of your bones and teeth. As said before, calcium is a mineral which works together with vitamin D and makes your bones thick and healthy. Women during their 20s start to lose density in their bones, so this mineral is important for women in their 30s to prevent osteoporosis. Sources of calcium are best found in dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. However, if you are not taking enough calcium through food, you can always get calcium supplements to strengthen your bones.

Finally, it is very important for women to regularly take all of these vitamins, because you start to lose important minerals in your 20s. Another reason why you should take care of your intake of these vitamins mentioned is because one day you will be pregnant and all of these are good for baby’s development and growth.
