- Women’s health issues are a big concern to just about every woman. Women's life stages are based on the reproductive cycle, beginning with menstruation and ending with menopause. Women's life stages are often marked by specific signs and symptoms, such as menstrual cramps, mood swings, hot flashes and weight gain (http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/womens-health/basics/womens-life-stages/hlv-20049411 ). The best women’s health care involves managing these symptoms with a nutrient-dense diet (http://www.webmd.com/women/guide/essential-vitamins-for-women-at-every-age#1 ). Nutrient-dense diets offer the most number and amount of essential nutrients in the fewest number of calories. All essential nutrients are needed: vitamins, minerals, and the macronutrients, carbohydrate, protein, and healthy fat.
The most important nutrients include the antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E. Antioxidants may lower the risk of some health problems and slow aging. Also especially important are vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid. These keep your brain working well and help your body make red blood cells. Regardless of age, you need calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins D and K to support healthy bones. All of these nutrients are important for women’s health issues.
The Nutrient Shake is a nutrient-dense food that is appropriate for women’s health care at any age. It supports the brain, immunity, bone health, while slowing the aging process.
