Our Favorite Supplements to Support Women’s Health
March is Women’s History Month; the perfect time to focus on an area we're passionate about – supporting women's health!
As a woman, you likely tend to put the needs of everyone but yourself first. When it feels like you're juggling a million different responsibilities, nutritional supplements can provide support and fill in the gaps in your diet.
Here are our 7 supplement picks for a healthy body and mind this Woman's Month (and every month after that).
Women’s Wholesome Multivitamin
Taking a regular multivitamin should be a no-brainer! It allows you to get a broad range of nutrients to promote immune, bone, cardiovascular, and skin health in one convenient supplement. Interestingly, research suggests regularly that taking a multivitamin reduces the risk of heart attacks in women (1).
When looking for a multivitamin, make sure it contains women's health nutrients like calcium, magnesium, folic acid, zinc, iron, B12, vitamin D3, and vitamin K. MD Logic Health's Women’s Wholesome Multi is a whole-food-based supplement that's not just for women in name; it's tailored to support your unique health needs! It contains 24 vitamins and minerals and 11 herbs specifically targeted to support resilience and hormonal balance.
If you're a woman heading towards middle age (or well past that milestone), CoQ10 is a superstar anti-aging supplement. It's an antioxidant compound that's an essential cofactor for energy production and promoting heart health (2). CoQ10's heart health benefits are significant; given that cardiovascular disease is the number 1 cause of death for women (3).
While it is produced by the body, CoQ10 production declines sharply with age. We recommend supporting your levels with MD Logic Health's CoQ10 especially if you're currently taking certain cholesterol-lowering medications which may deplete your normal CoQ10 levels.
If you want a supplement to ease joint pain, improve mobility and encourage youthful, glowing skin – look no further than collagen! A popular beauty supplement, collagen is an abundant structural protein in the body that supports strong and flexible connective tissue for joint, tendon, skin, hair, and nail health.
Plenty of scientific studies have found supplementing with collagen enhances skin elasticity and hydration, reducing signs of skin aging and improving your appearance (4). It's a must-have for women struggling with poor skin elasticity, dry skin, and premature wrinkles.
MD Logic Health Collagen contains hydrolyzed type I & III bovine collagen and a whole host of other anti-aging and beauty nutrients. Available in tangerine and mocha flavors and naturally sweet, it can be easily mixed with water, juice, coffee, or smoothies.
If you're struggling with severe PMS, tender breasts, heavy periods, and mood swings, you may be dealing with estrogen dominance (5). The culprits that contribute to this hormonal imbalance are synthetic xenoestrogens from environmental pollution, plastics, fragrances and body products. They mimic estrogen in the body and cause dreaded hormonal disruptions that may increase your cancer risk. While eating well and avoiding environmental toxins is hugely beneficial for hormone health, it's important to give your body extra liver detoxification support.
MD Logic Health's Estro-D-Tox contains the active compounds Diindolylmethane (DIM), Sulforaphane Calcium D-Glucarate and Cyanidin-3-Glucoside (C-3-G) for healthy estrogen metabolism and hormonal balance.
Krill oil is one of the best sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) on the planet! Omega-3s are powerful anti-inflammatory fatty acids and are necessary for supporting heart, brain, joint and skin health — among many other things. Being essential, they must be consumed via diet or supplementation. The trouble is, most people don't consume nearly enough!
MD Logic Health's Krill Plus is something all ladies should take, especially if you don't manage to eat oily fish 3 times per week. It provides sustainable krill oil along with a synergistic blend of flaxseed, borage, safflower, sunflower, and sea buckthorn oils.
Interestingly, research suggests krill oil has unique benefits for women, helping to relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and painful periods (6).
We have a natural supplement to help women maintain a healthy weight and support physical fitness, without getting bulky!
BCAAs – branched-chain amino acids – are the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine that fuel muscle protein synthesis and support muscle recovery. In a study of women in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, taking BCAAs before doing 7 sets of squats significantly reduced delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) (7).
If you don't have the time (or will) to eat a chicken breast or piece of steak before your workout, try BCAAs for better performance and faster recovery!
The "sunshine vitamin", Vitamin D3, is an essential nutrient for strong bones, hormonal balance, mood support, and cardiovascular health. However, as a busy career woman and supermom, the struggle to get enough time in the sun is real – especially in winter! Plus, vitamin D3 is only found in limited food sources. It's no wonder many women (and people in general) have low vitamin D levels.
MD Logic Health's Vitamin D3 provides 5000IU of active cholecalciferol per soft-gel capsule. It’s a vital nutrient for all women, especially those with a family history of breast cancer, as optimal vitamin D levels are linked to reduced breast cancer risk (8).
MD Logic uses an Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Chlorophyll Delivery system for maximum absorption.
We hope this article has given you some insight into the supplements that offer the best support for women, no matter the stage of life. Remember to give yourself a little extra TLC this Women's Month. Your body and mind will thank you!
