1.Vitamin B Supplements
For healthy hormone production and for metabolizing sugars and starches, women need to consume vitamin B in more quantity as compared to men. Vitamin B not only helps in converting active hormones into inactive forms and sending them to the correct destinations in a woman’s body, but also helps in removing excessive hormones, thus vitamin B also prevents toxicity.
According to Serena Goldstein, a naturopathy doctor based in New York, “B vitamins also help combat sugar cravings and fatigue, common symptoms that tend to accompany and promote hormone imbalance.”
Coenzyme Q10 is quite similar to vitamins and is produced by the body and get stored in and used by cells. It is responsible for producing energy for cell production and maintenance and works as an antioxidant as well. The other names for CoQ10 are vitamin Q10, Q10, ubidecarenone and ubiquinone.
Women need to be really careful about the vitamin D levels in their bodies as this is the vitamins that works as a shield against breast cancer, uterine fibroids, depression, Alzheimer’s, PMS, rheumatoid arthritis, difficulty in conceiving, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, high levels of bad cholesterol, bone and muscle loss before menopause, and many other ailments. Deficiency of vitamin d can also cause kidney stones.
When a single vitamin does so much for your health, there’s no option to ignore it. And to make sure this particular vitamin gets absorbed in the body, you’ll need to keep you liver healthy, so stay away from excessive alcohol consumption, and do not smoke.
Magnesium is vital for carrying out a lot of processes in a woman’s body. Deficiency of magnesium can lead to cramps, sleep difficulties, constipation, anxiety, sore muscles, and many other unhealthy and bothersome symptoms. Goldstein says, “Magnesium can be depleted by stress, soda, caffeine, certain medications, and unfortunately, it’s not as prevalent in soil as decades ago” Goldstein.
While you can take magnesium supplements, you may want to keep daily dosage within the limit of 200 to 800 mg. Too much of magnesium can cause loose stools.
There’s another amazing way to absorb magnesium through skin: you can add 2 cups of Epsom salts in a tub of warm water and soak for 15 minutes, at least 15 minutes. You can also rub magnesium oil on your stomach and soles of the feet before going to bed.
