As women age, their dietary needs change and so does their need for dietary supplements.

Five Key Dietary Supplements

There are five key dietary supplements for women:

  • Iron – helps blood cells carry oxygen (without enough you can feel tired and lack energy)
  • Calcium – helps build strong bones in young people and helps prevent bone loss as you get older
  • Vitamin D – helps maintain strong bones by helping the body absorb calcium
  • Magnesium – also important for good growth and maintenance of bones
  • Folic Acid – needed to prevent a shortage of red blood cells and can help prevent some birth defects

Your physician can recommend which dietary supplements are most important for you at your current life stage.
