We all could use an extra boost every now and again. Here’s a couple tips on vitamins that can help you with energy levels, hair, skin, nails, and overall wellness! Of course, ask you doctor before taking any new supplements!
Calcium is a great supplement to aid in relieving PMS symptoms. For full effect, begin taking a calcium supplement around two weeks to one month before your cycle to see improvements in bloating, mood swings, and cramping.
Iron helps us to not feel so groggy and tired during menstrual cycles. While you may not need to take iron every day, it definitely helps to take the week before and during a period.
Women’s Once-a-Day Multivitamins are great for overall wellness and as a aid to your regular dietary habits. Most of us don’t eat quite as many fruits and vegetables as we should, and tend to not get the right amount of minerals and nutrients. Taking a women’s once-a-day multivitamin can help with increasing energy levels, work/school performance, and of course hair, skin, and nail growth!
Omgea 3,6, and 9 are not only great for reducing the risks of heart disease and lowering cholesterol, but they also keep hair growing thick and shiny, while also keeping the skin looking radiant and protecting both from drying out!
Probiotics, aka the good bacteria found in yogurt, aid in digestion, can ease symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and can help prevent or treat both yeast infections and bacterial vaginiosis.
Probiotics are also especially great for after a running a course of antibiotics, which can kill off much of the good bacterial in your body while getting rid of the bad ones as well.
Also, ladies, please keep in mind that when taking a new vitamin, make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day to ensure avoiding any weird side-effects as your body gets used to what you’re adding to it!
