When it comes to optimal nutrition, there are both similarities and differences between women and men. In the majority of individuals, female or male, a healthy diet does not always provide optimal amounts of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients needed on a daily basis.
This women's formula contains optimum levels of over 35 vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and herbal extracts in just three easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules per day. It is made from the highest quality ingredients and contains the proper ratios of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to energize, provide relief from stress, protect against organ degeneration, and aid in the prevention of chronic disease. In addition, it contains betaine hydrochloride (HCL) and a digestive enzyme blend to help maximize absorption. Betaine HCL helps compensate for low stomach acid production, something traditionally seen amongst the elderly but becoming increasingly common in younger people.
Most women talk to their health care practitioner about osteoporosis just as they reach menopause. Ideally though, it is best to promote healthy bone structure and prevent bone loss long before menopause. Recent clinical trials and epidemiological studies have shown that a wide range of nutrients are essential to bone health and inadequate intake leads to osteoporosis. These studies show that calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, copper, boron, iron, zinc, vitamins D, A, K, and C, and the B vitamins all play a role in preventing osteoporosis.
The hormonal problems encountered by women experiencing PMS, perimenopause or menopause centre around excess estrogen. Estrogen dominance can also make women more susceptible to breast cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers. This formula has indole-3-carbinol, a powerful phytonutrient derived from broccoli and cruciferous vegetables which positively affects estrogen metabolism and is believed useful for preventing and treating breast and other cancers. Indole-3-carbinol activates detoxification enzymes in the intestinal tract, binds to chemical carcinogens, rendering them inactive, and improves estrogen balance, thus reducing the risk of breast cancer.
