With so many vitamins and dietary supplements on the market today, deciding which vitamins are best for you can get overwhelming. Depending on your age, lifestyle, and diet, some vitamins take precedence over others. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the essentials; whether you’re a woman in your 20s, or 50s, we’ve got you covered.
Your 20s is the perfect time to implement a preventative plan and take control your health. To begin, ensure you’re receiving a wide range of vitamins and minerals on a daily basis.
If you struggle to meet the daily recommended nutritional requirements through your diet alone, we highly recommend incorporating a multivitamin into your daily routine. For women specifically, look for a multivitamin that contains effective levels of vitamin A, C, D, and E.
- Vitamin A is essential for preserving eyesight and healthy skin. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in North America, which is why we need to do everything in our power to prevent vision loss as we age.
- Vitamin C and E fight free radical damage which is linked to many age-related diseases that affect your heart, eyes, skin, and brain.
- Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium which supports a healthy immune system and stronger bones.
Dr. Tobias Adult Multivitamin contains the daily recommended dose of vitamins A, C, D, and E. There’s also a wide range of added vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, zinc, and biotin.
For many women, this period of life involves an increase in responsibilities such as being in the work force full time, taking care of finances, child bearing, and raising a family. This increase in responsibility often leads to an increase in stress levels.
Stress has a long list of negative side effects. A few of them include:
- health issues such as a weakened immune system,
- skin issues like premature aging and acne,
- and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
That’s why it’s extremely important to include a source of antioxidants in your daily routine to help combat stress. Not only do antioxidants fight stress, they strengthen your immune system to help prevent illness.
Vitamin C and E are both rich in antioxidant properties. Vitamin C in particular improves immunity and helps fight free radicals. As an added benefit, it protects your skin from environmental pollutants and supports the creation of collagen, which increases the skin’s elasticity and youthful look. Vitamin E helps fight inflammation, which is partly caused by stress, to ultimately slow down the aging process and promote healthy, youthful looking skin.
A lot of health problems can stem from an imbalance in our gut. When your gut is off balance, it typically means you have a large number of bad bacteria. Bad bacteria increases as a result of things like stress, antibiotics, and chlorinated water.
Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that create a healthy gut and digestive system. They help eliminate the “bad stuff” in your gut like chemicals, toxins, and bad bacteria. The benefits of probiotics on women’s health are endless:
- They help treat and prevent
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Urinary tract infections
- Vaginal infections
- Yeast imbalance
- Promote gut health
- Balance hormones
- Support heart health
Keep in mind not all probiotics are the same. Different probiotic strains have different effects. That’s why we developed a probiotic specifically for women. Dr Tobias Deep Immune Probiotic contains probiotic strains that promote and support women’s health. It’s a powerful combination of probiotics, prebiotics and cranberry extract that work together to support yeast balance, urinary tract health, and a healthy digestive system.
Although this part of life involves many exciting moments, most women say menopause isn’t one of them! Let’s face it, menopausal symptoms are no fun, but there’s supplements you can take to decrease them.
Look for a supplement that includes natural ingredients like black cohosh, dong quai, licorice and red clover. These ingredients have been shown to help balance hormones and decrease menopausal symptoms including the occurrence of hot flashes.
Dr. Tobias Menopause Relief is made with non-GMO ingredients, including black cohosh, dong quai, licorice and red clover, to help decrease unpleasant menopausal symptoms, naturally.
Important for all ages
Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which are great for supporting overall health, especially for the heart and brain.
It’s important to find a premium quality fish oil that has high Omega-3 contents. Our best-selling Dr. Tobias Omega 3 Fish Oil only comes from fresh, wild-caught fish, so you get 3 times more Omega 3 fatty acids in each serving. It’s also designed with the perfect EPA to DHA ratio to help your body absorb Omega 3 and get the most out of every dose.
Please note these are general guidelines, as everyone has their own individual needs. It’s best to consult your doctor or physician to figure out what those needs may be.
