Women's Health

Women's health is a very important section as far as we are concerned. There are many stages throughout a women's life and each of them places their own nutritional demands on the body as it constantly changes.

General Wellbeing is probably the most common product grouping, as it covers most of a woman's life stages. Because nutrition is our first line of defence against illness and disease we must ensure a good balance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including essential fatty acids (such as Omega-3) are obtained by the body. They help with the immune system, hormone balance, promote soft and shiny hair, the strength of nails and keep skin looking radiant.

The other stages of life are normally split into Beauty, PMS, Pregnancy and Menopause:

Beauty as they say, is in the eye of the beholder, but it is often forgotten that it is more than just skin deep. The whole beauty process begins from inside, from making sure you drink enough water to stay hydrated, to providing the correct nutrients for healthy hair, skin and nails. The product we would recommend that best suits this demand is Hair Nutrition.

PMS (premenstrual syndrome) affects almost 50% of premenopausal women and there are many symptoms including stress, depression, irritability, tiredness and cramps. Luckily, there are a number of natural remedies available that can help reduce the severity of these symptoms. These include Evening Primrose Oil or Starflower Oil, because of their natural GLA content, Vitamin B6, which is essential for the body to produce hormones.

Pregnancy is one of the most nutritionally demanding stages in a woman's life, as the body is under tremendous pressure to maintain the proper development of the foetus. During this period of rapid development the mother is the only source of food for the growing baby, so good nutrition is vitally important. We would always recommend our Pregnancy Formula, for before, during and after pregnancy, and our Omega-3 Fish Oil or Flaxseed Oil product to help with foetal development and growth all through breast feeding.

Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, and is caused by levels of oestrogen and progesterone dropping. This dip in hormones often results in one or many unpleasant symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, weight gain and depression. Nutrition is actually a relatively easy way to control these symptoms, by using many of the natural products available, including our extremely popular Menopause Formula.

So, whichever stage of life you are in Bio Nutrition have the perfect product for you!
