Vegetology supports women’s health

Tired of the woes of womanhood? Or maybe you’re just tired of being tired? Reach for a bottle of Vegetology to help restore your zest.

Everyone faces issues with their health at some point in life but there are some challenges which are uniquely female, from menstruation to conception, pregnancy and childbirth issues as well as breast health. Healthy diets and regular exercise go a long way in alleviating the physical and mental challenges we face, but sometimes there’s not enough time or energy, or our bodies simply need more. This is where supplements can play a vital role in helping us maintain our health, and Vegetology supplements are tailored, delivering exactly what every woman wants (and needs).

The setbacks of being superwoman

‘I can do it all!’ Sound familiar? We’ve either said it ourselves or we hear women say it around us all the time. As knowledge and awareness of the benefits of healthy eating, exercise, mindfulness and social awareness grows, so does our desire to make the most of every day, to succeed, to grow, to inspire and to build strength and resilience. Women who are passionate about their health, wellness and fitness tend to eat well, exercise when they can and are aware of the need for self-care amidst a life of hard work and never-ending social and family duties and activities.

Traditionally homemakers, for centuries women spent most of their lives looking after others. Happily our world is more equitable, yet there’s still evidence that millions of women around the world, with successful careers and financial independence, take on the lion’s share of the caring too - for children or parents or other family members or friends who need support. And if we’re always looking after others, how can we prioritise our own health?

Women’s health – the red flags

Women are incredible beings, bringing life and nurturing others is a privilege, but being amazing also requires sacrifice. Doing it all takes its toll. So what health issues do we commonly face?

Reproductive health issues, from painful periods to irregular menstrual cycles and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can be debilitating. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a hormonal disorder, which can cause conception issues and endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, leading to pain, fertility problems, and other complications.

In pregnancy women can suffer from gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and postpartum depression. UTIs and osteoporosis can occur in men too but are more common in women.

We love our boobs but from breast cancer to fibrocystic changes in the breasts, breast health must be taken seriously.

The best vitamins for the ladies

Iron is essential for maintaining healthy blood and preventing iron-deficiency anaemia. Calcium and vitamin D are important for bone health, which is particularly relevant during pregnancy and menopause. Omega-3 fatty acids and calcium are essential for a baby’s bone and brain development and function in the womb and folate (B9) is important for healthy foetal development and reducing the risk of neural tube defects during pregnancy. Vitamins B, C and E are antioxidants that help protect cells from oxidative damage and can help regulate hormone balance and support reproductive health.

For breast health, omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants such as vitamins C and E help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Fibre, calcium, vitamins D, K, C and magnesium can tackle osteoporosis and can help protect against UTIs, as can cranberry products and iron.
