What are Women only Supplements and Vitamins

Women's needs in terms of various supplement and vitamins are different from men. Although men and women share some nutrient requirements, women have a menstrual cycle, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, menopause (cold night sweats and hot flashes) and osteoporosis. One multivitamin does not fit both sexes nor do other supplements.

Women's Vitamins and Supplements

Iron, calcium and vitamin D3 – throughout a women's life, she will need to take iron and much more iron than a man. This is particularly true of pre-menopausal women. Depending on how heavy your menstrual bleeding is, you will need to supplement. You lose a significant amount of blood every month. Once your are post-menopausal your iron requirement is about the same as men. After menopause, women need to take more calcium than men because of hormonal fluctuations and osteoporosis. To maintain bone strength post-menopausal, women need to supplement with calcium and make sure you get that with vitamin D3. You automatically get vitamin D3 when you are in sunlight. Sunlight converts cholesterol in the blood to vitamin D3. If you don't get enough sunlight or you are taking calcium supplements, you'll need to supplement with D3. Most calcium supplements come with D3 already in there. In general, women have lower levels of D3 than men. If you need to supplement with just D3, the recommended dosage is 2,000 I.U. daily. However, there are many popular weight loss programs for both men and women. But, you need to select proper program which suits your body.

Phentermine - women prefer this weight loss product when it comes to losing weight. This diet pill is one of the most widely used medications for weight loss. A lot of women lose weight on Phentermine and show their before and after photos all over the web.

Multivitamin/mineral – ultimately women should get most of the vitamins and minerals from the foods they eat but sometimes it is necessary to supplement. Try buying a simple multi/mineral product and it doesn't have to cost an arm or a leg. These vitamins will replenish what you are missing well enough. It's best to take your multi when you have breakfast and that's all you need to do.

Pregnancy and vitamins – in actuality, you should start taking vitamins before you get pregnant and we're looking at at least 3 months before you conceive. Did you know that the egg begins maturation 3 months before it is actually released. It's very important that the maturing egg gets all the nutrition it needs to get a good start on things. You need to consider that neural-tube issues can occur 4-6 weeks of pregnancy. So, if you just had an unplanned pregnancy and you're not taking supplements, you need to start right away. It's particularly important that you start taking folic acid (B9). The recommended dosage is 600 mcg daily. Folic acid is important for the making of nucleic acids which is important for DNA and RNA (genetic material). You'll also need iron because it will help prevent iron poor blood in the mother and it will bring oxygen to the developing fetus. You'll also need calcium to prevent your bone loss and help build the fetus's bones. It is difficult to tell you what vitamins to buy because there are so many. Some prenatal and pregnancy vitamins come with a little bit of everything in them to ones that contain only a handful of ingredients. You'll need to talk to your GYN-OB about that. If you have any health issues, you'll need to take extra supplements for that.
