With the fast-paced modern lifestyle, even when we eat very well . . . the fact remains that most of us cannot get the vitamins and minerals we need from food alone!
This is why supplementation with multivitamins, multi-minerals, and other nutrients is vital to bridging that gap!
Bridging this gap is especially important for women! With menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and child-rearing – women’s bodies do amazing things. However, without proper nutrition – what might be natural and amazing, becomes difficult and exhausting instead!
In the Savvy Team, we’ve always recommended targeted vitamin supplementation for women – because when you boost levels of key nutrients in your body, you give yourself the best chances of preventing cancer, heart disease, dementia and other diseases.
According to a study published in the January 2015 edition of the ‘Journal of the American College of Nutrition’, roughly 40 percent of adults are deficient in vitamin A, C, D, E, calcium, and magnesium. The findings of studies such as this suggest that many people may not even have the nutrient levels they need to stave off disease – let alone optimise their health and wellbeing! As we see it, everyone needs a multivitamin for disease prevention, and new research fully agrees!
So ladies . . . what essential nutrient needs should you be topping-up on?
