Choosing a decent multi vitamin and mineral supplement will help to ensure all of the key trace minerals like iron, zinc, chromium and selenium are covered. Calcium intake is also very important for women of this age group for bone mass peaks at around 30-35 years of age and optimum levels are important for healthy bones and teeth.
As women approach middle age they are faced with different health and lifestyle considerations. With children grown up this is often the time when women can start to focus more on themselves and their own health.
It may not seem fair but this is the time when the skin becomes much drier and weight gain can become an issue as the body’s requirements for calories falls. The result for many women is that they have to stay on a permanent diet that can restrict the amount of nutrients they consume, particularly calcium and essential fatty acids. Many women also experience memory and sleep problems but the good news is there is plenty you can do through good nutrition to stay as young as you feel.
A good multi with potent (but safe) levels is a must and where diets are low in dairy foods then consider an additional supplement of calcium and magnesium which are so important for bone health. For those that don’t regularly eat oily fish then a fish oil supplement will ensure sufficient Omega 3s in the diet. This will provide the body with a solid nutritional foundation to which other supplements can be added as necessary.
