When it comes to healthy eating, many of us are trying to achieve an overall level of balance. We’re trying to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible, get our protein, drink enough water, and make sure we have all the nutrients to keep our body in tip-top shape.

But, it may not be possible to get all the vitamins and minerals our bodies need from meals alone. Much as the best way to get these nutrients is through food, taking supplements to counter deficiencies and fill the gap can have several advantages. Here are 8 benefits of vitamins and mineral supplements, for women.

  1.  Boost immunity

Vitamins such as vitamin C are vital for keeping your immunity strengthened. Your immunity needs to be strong because your body is constantly fighting off infections so you must keep your vitamin C levels high by supplementing your fruit intake with vitamin supplements.

  1. Boost Energy Levels

Vitamin deficiency can lead to fatigue and a lack of energy. Your body will have to work a lot harder to perform simple tasks. Though you may be eating your fruits, you may not be eating enough of the ones that give you energy-boosting vitamins like those in the vitamin B family, and taking supplements rich in these vitamins can help you get your energy levels up.

  1. Improves Bone Health

Calcium is the mineral responsible for bone strength and development as well as teeth. Some people do not eat foods rich in calcium due to allergies such as dairy products and even those that do you may not be getting enough calcium. Menopausal women and post-menopausal women’s bone loss tends to accelerate as the body produces less estrogen and adding calcium supplements can help improve their bone health.

  1. Helps with stress and anxiety

A lack of certain vitamins like vitamin D that help regulate your mood can cause anxiety and sadness. Some people do not get enough exposure to sunlight enough to get vitamin D because maybe they spend the majority of their time working indoors or they leave in cold areas. Taking vitamin D supplements can help with anxiety and stress that is due to deficiency and keep your nervous system functioning properly.

You must get these nutrients from your food first. Supplements are meant to act as bonuses and boosters, not meals. You should also consult with your doctor/physician before you start taking supplements so that they can prescribe the best ones for you and in the right proportions.

Seeking expert help will also help you avoid reactions in case of allergies.
