A wise woman once said “Communities and countries, and ultimately the world, are only as strong as the health of their women”. This wise woman is Michelle Obama. We couldn’t agree with her more. August is Women’s Month, and despite not needing any reason to place females at the fore, we want to highlight our top four vitamins and supplements for women, and why they need it. At VitaminMe we’re all about supporting women’s wellness and health.
Many women can, and do, meet their nutrient needs through their diet alone, but some women can benefit from taking a supplement or vitamin daily. Let’s be real, life happens and we don’t always have the time to get all the good stuff in, in the right amounts.
This is where women can benefit from a little helping hand. No matter how busy you might be your health and wellness should always take priority.
Choosing the right supplements can be overwhelming, to say the least. Shelves and online stores are packed with choices. VitaminMe has carefully formulated a range of targeted vitamins, that enhance women’s wellness by using the highest-quality ingredients, in the right amounts. Each of our vitamins has its own role in keeping our health in check.
So, what are some of our top vitamins for women?
Biotin – Also known as Vitamin H, is one of the B complex vitamins that help the body convert food into energy. The word “biotin” comes from the ancient Greek word “Biotos” which means “life” or “sustenance.” How appropriate? B Vitamins, specifically Biotin, help support your skin, hair, eyes, liver and nervous system.
This vital vitamin can be found in VitaminMe Hair Growth + Strength, which has been formulated specifically to enhance thicker, longer, healthier hair.
Vitamin A – All cells need Vitamin A for growth. Yes, all of them! This is why it is one of the top vitamins for women. Vitamin A also helps skin glands make an oily substance called sebum. Say what? Sebum is an oily, waxy substance that moisturizes, and protects your skin. I’ll have some of that, please. Our Skin Clarity + Glow supplement contains your daily dose of Vitamin A, along with other skin saviours.
Zinc – Zinc is an essential mineral that women require daily to stay healthy. This is what makes it the perfect woman’s supplement. A healthy zinc level supports your immune system, hormones, skin and hair health, and more. Did you know your menstrual cycle and zinc are intertwined scientifically? Zinc helps regulate menstruation and helps reduce symptoms of PMS. Finally, you can say peace-out to period concerns with our PMS Support + Hormone Balance.
Vitamin D – Also known as the sunshine vitamin, plays an important role in keeping our bodies healthy. Its main role is to promote calcium absorption which supports bone growth and strength. But the benefits don’t end there. Unfortunately, not all of us get enough sunlight for our bodies to absorb this powerful vitamin, but don’t worry we have a solution. We can support our Vitamin D levels through supplementation! Get your daily dose of vitamin D, along with all the other good stuff by taking our Daily Multivitamin.
As women, let’s remember we don’t have to be extreme, we just have to be consistent. Get up, show up and never give up. Women’s wellness for the win!
