Women’s Nutritional Needs

Women need certain nutrients in higher amounts than men, particularly the B vitamins. Since the 1940’s deficiency of the vitamin B complex and PMS, menstrual cramping, excessive bleeding and fibrocystic breast disease has been observed.

Studies have shown that patients with one or more of these complaints also had signs of B-vitamin deficiency. Symptoms were shown to improve with supplementation.

Other important nutrients for women include:

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids   has been known to relieve irregular and/or painful menstruation as well as menopausal symptoms including hot flashes.

Vitamin E   has been effectively used in treating fibrocystic breast disease and relieves hot flashes, and all major symptoms of PMS.

Vitamin D necessary for calcium absorption and bone formation.

Magnesium deficiency has a strong association with high levels of PMS symptoms.

Chromium is essential for regulating blood sugar levels. Blood sugar irregularities can lead to mood swings, cravings, headaches that are often experienced during PMS and menopause.

Iodine, needed in trace amounts , helps to metabolize excess fat. Iodine deficiency has also been linked to breast cancer.

Glandular concentrates may be used to normalize glandular function and hence restore hormone balance.

 Ask the Doctors to help determine your specific nutritional needs in order to feel your best!
