Why women need iron
Iron is an important component in our bodies for normal function of the immune system and for the oxygenation in the blood through the creation of haemoglobin. The haemoglobin binds and transports the oxygen to the body's cells. Iron is one of the nutrients where the body's absorption is low. The body most easily absorbs iron from animal products, primarily blood and intestinal foods, but also from meat, shellfish, and eggs.
All people need iron. But women of childbearing age and teenage girls run a greater risk of suffering from iron deficiency due to menstrual bleeding. A varied and iron-rich diet is recommended to avoid iron deficiency and to maintain normal iron levels. Healthwell Multivitamin Woman contains about 10 mg of iron per serving.
Sticking to the recommended daily intake of iron is harmless, but in excessive amounts, iron can become toxic to the body. Always consult a physician before deciding to add larger amounts of iron supplements, as the recommended daily intake differs between genders and age groups.
Fruit extract for women
There are many benefits to adding fruit extract to your daily diet. One of the supplements contained in Multivitamin Woman is cranberry extract. Cranberries contain a large amount of antioxidants, such as vitamin C that helps to protect the body's cells against oxidative stress. It is also said that cranberries are a popular supplement when experiencing urinary tract problems; however, this is not yet scientifically proven. For an extract of only cranberries, we have Healthwell Cranberry Tablets Another fruit extract rich in antioxidants and vitamin C is extract from rosehip. Many people who suffer from joint disorders in the form of osteoarthritis or arthritis add rosehip capsules to their diet, as it is believed to help maintain mobility of the joints.
Calendula extract is a fruit extract that, along with blueberries, is rich in lutein. Lutein is a nutrient that belongs to the carotenoid family and is one of many building blocks contributing to normal vision in both animals and people. A lutein supplement contains these carotenoids that are also a pro-vitamin of vitamin A, which is essential for normal vision.
