Women's Health

If you're a health-conscious woman, you probably know your nutritional needs change with each life stage. If you're of childbearing age, you need an adequate intake of folic acid to prevent birth defects. If you've gone through menopause, you may need to increase your intake of calcium and vitamin D to keep your bones strong. A vitamin deficiency can lead to serious health problems.

What are vitamins, anyway?

Vitamins are essential chemicals that take part in all your body's processes. They do that by participating in reactions inside cells. Each vitamin performs a specific function in the body, and no single food contains all the vitamins you need. Except for vitamin D, the human body cannot make vitamins. So you need to get vitamins from the foods you eat or from vitamin supplements.
