Ok, so you know Vitamins and Minerals are important. Most every woman knows that.
However, not everyone understands WHY they are so important for their body. So I recently asked Registered Dietitian Jayson Hunter to give us the easy rundown on the Top Women's Vitamins. Here's what he had to say:
Vitamin A - This vitamin contributes to the health of you eyes, skin and nails.
Vitamim B - While B Vitamins are often referred to as "energy vitamins" they don't actually give you a surge of energy, per se. What they actually do is help facilitate metabolic reaction in the body to create energy. They're also necessary for a healthy metabolism.
Vitamin C - This women's vitamin is a great antioxidant and immune system booster. It also helps skin health.
Vitamin D - Helps women absorb calcium. And it may help prevent certain types of cancer.
calcium - It's actually a mineral not a vitamin. And as most women know already, it improves bone density.
Pretty simple, right? But you can also see why it's so important to understand vitamins for women. When we understand the reasons to make healthier choices it helps us make them.
Now, I get asked all the time by women which vitamin supplements, if any, they need to be taking. Great question.
Well, if your nutrition is 100% perfect all the time then you probably don't need to take any.
But that's not the case for most women. Most women are busy as heck and don't always find the time for proper nutrition. So if that's the case with you I recommend taking a Whole Foods based Multi-Vitamin. And the only one I recommend is Prograde Nutrition's VGF 25+ for Women.
It's actually really cool because it's literally made from 25 veggies, greens and fruits. You should definitely check out Prograde's Women's Vitamins. At the very top of the page is the list of ingredients. You can see the 25 whole foods they use to make VGF 25+ for Women.
Yours in health,
PS - Pretty cool, huh? The nutrition of 25 whole foods in a bottle!
