Six of the best supplements for womenA busy lifestyle filled with work and family commitments can leave little time to focus on your health and wellbeing. That’s why we have developed a range of vitamins, minerals and supplements to help women stay healthy at every stage of life. Here are six of our favourites.
For under 50s
Balance a hectic routine with healthy choices so you can be at your best.
If a spot of pampering is long overdue but you can’t find time for a trip to the salon, Protectocell can help.
Taken once a day, these tablets provide a variety of vitamins and minerals which contribute to the maintenance of normal hair, skin and nails. So even when you’re on the go, you can still look and feel fantastic.
Protectocell is a unique product providing the botanicals Kelp, Echinacea, Horsetail and Aloe Vera.
To provide extra support to a busy mind and body, we recommend Siberian ginseng. Traditionally used to promote energy, the B12 it contains can help can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue. It also contains a high level of vitamin B6, which can regulate hormonal activity and support your hormonal health, helping you feel healthy at every time of the month.
Vitamin B6 occurs naturally in many vegetables, but it can be easily destroyed by overcooking. Taken once a day, a vitamin B6 supplement will contribute to the functioning of the nervous and immune systems.
After a hectic day or sleepless night, Vitamin B6 can also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. As mentioned before, it can regulate hormonal activity too. 100mg of Vitamin B6 is commonly taken by women prior and during their period.
For over 50s
Give your mind and body extra support to stay healthy for longer.
The menopause brings with it a variety of symptoms which can have an impact on your quality of life. From changes in mood and libido, to hot flushes, headaches and aching joints, many women suffer from one or more of these symptoms.
Menopause Complete contains a blend of vitamins, minerals and botanicals to support women during the menopause. This includes vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and magnesium, which can all help to reduce the tiredness and fatigue that this time of life can cause.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and is often seen in anti-ageing creams.
It can be difficult to receive the recommended daily allowance of this important vitamin from food alone, so a vitamin E supplement can help provide your body with extra support.
Often found growing in the herb garden or in your Sunday lunch stuffing, sage has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. Our sage supplement is popular with women during the menopause, and one or two capsules can be taken daily with food.
Alternatively, add the contents of a capsule or two to hot water, making a tasty and healthy herbal tea.
