Supplements For An Active Ladies

I married with an active ladies. My wife actually the one who teach me a lot about supplement. This is what she eat for herself and some of its description. I learn from her habit and write it here.

Iron is good for women who are tired all the time, according to the article, because when ion is low, the body has less haemoglobin, less oxygen and less energy. Menstruation and a diet lacking in red meat can increase the case of iron deficiency. It noted women need to take an iron supplement for at least six month to build up the body's stores.

Ladies who work indoors may need extra vitamin D because it’s produced when the body is exposed to sunlight. There is an article recommended taking a supplement with 1,000 IU a day and getting 10 to 15 minutes of unblocked sunlight a few times a week. For those who are never in the sun, a supplement of 2,000 IU a day is better. It said to look for vitamin D3 supplements in health-food stores.

Caricol, which is a branded liquid supplement derived from organic papaya fruit, is good for digestive issues, noted the article. Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which can help reduce constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bloating.

For those women who want to “glow with health,” I suggested magnesium. Modern farming practices reduced magnesium levels from our soil, and cooking high-magnesium foods such as green, leafy vegetables often destroys what's left. To get enough of this mineral, it recommended eating nuts and dark chocolate, but said even with those in the diet, most women are deficient. Along with a multivitamin that contains magnesium, it recommended 400 mg in an additional supplement.

Besides for the earlier mention of papain, the article said other digestive enzymes are good for women prone to bloating. Stress, rushing meals and undiagnosed food sensitivities can make it hard for the body to break food down into the small particles needed to effectively extract nutrients, noted the article, so enzymes can help.

 Lastly, it said that probiotics help boost immune systems because diarrhea, antibiotics and a high-sugar diet deplete the healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. This means “bad” bacteria can invade the body’s defenses causing illness.  Although many yogurts contain a good amount of probiotics, the article said, women should watch out for the high sugar content of these products. Probiotics can also be found in pill form.
