5 Vitamins For Women

5 Vitamins For Women

With International Women’s Day fast approaching, we’re thinking about essential vitamins for women. So which nutrients do females need more of and why? Here’s everything you need to know.  

Vitamins For Women 

As humans, men and women generally have similar nutritional needs. We share over 95% of the same DNA, so for the most part, our requirements for carbohydrates, fats and protein are the same. Despite this, we have differing metabolic rates and different reproductive functions, meaning there are a variety of differences in the vitamins we need.  

Here are our top 5 supplements for women, and why it may be time to start incorporating some of them into your routine: 

1. Multivitamin Gummies

Vitamins for women

The Myvitamins Multivitamin Gummies are a delicious, Strawberry flavour gummy containing 10 essential vitamins and minerals, with each nutrient providing a wealth of health and wellness benefits.  

These benefits include reducing tiredness through the inclusion of vitamin C, (1) as well as enhancing cognitive performance through the addition of B vitamins. (2) These gummies also contain vitamin D, an important nutrient which plays a role in bone health and immune function. (3) Vitamin D also supports the symptoms of low estrogen, so it’s a must-have for menopausal women in particular. 

 

2. Essential Omega-3 Capsules  

Adequate omega-3 levels exert positive cardiovascular effects, such as reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. (4) They also help to maintain healthy brain function, including supporting our mental health. 5

Interestingly, research also suggests that omega-3‘s may help reduce the psychological signs of PMS, such as depression, anxiety and lack of concentration, making this supplement an indispensable addition to women’s health. 6

3. Gut Gummies  

Vitamins for women

Our gut plays a significant role in the health of our overall bodies. In fact, 90% of our serotonin (or, the ‘happy hormone’) is produced in the gut. (7) This means that maintaining healthy digestion is vital for keeping our mental health in check. 

Our gut is made up of a delicate combination of good and bad bacteria. When this becomes unbalanced, we lend ourselves to an increased risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and obesity. (8)

Myvitamins Gut Gummies are packed with 1 billion live cultures, so adding these tasty gummies into your daily routine can increase the good bacteria in your gut and help to even out imbalances caused by a diet rich in sugar and processed foods. These probiotics are also packed with vitamin C, helping to combat tiredness and fatigue and providing an extra level of support to your immune system. 1

4. Pregnancy Gummies  

It’s important to maintain your intake of vitamins and minerals at all times in your life, but especially during pregnancy. 

Myvitamins Pregnancy Gummies are a Mixed Berry flavour supplement, enriched with essential pregnancy nutrients including folic acid to support foetal development (9) and vitamin E to support cell function. (10) These gummies also contain vitamin B12 to reduce feelings of tiredness- a common symptom of early pregnancy. 2

5. Beauty Bites

We know that vitamins are important for your internal health, but what about your external wellbeing? Myvitamins Beauty Bites are a Salted Almond Caramel flavour snack enriched with important nutrients for skin health, including vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid.

These bites also contain 24mg of vitamin C per serving. This essential vitamin helps to maintain the formation of collagen- a naturally occurring protein which impacts skin elasticity and hair growth. 11
