What do women want? To live long, healthy lives! Throughout life women have particular health and nutritional needs to help defend against conditions such as heart disease and osteoporosis. In addition to eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise, most experts agree on the following tips and products to help women live long, healthy, happy lives.
As a woman you have special nutritional needs that are not always met with diet alone, especially during times like menopause and pregnancy. Explore more about soy, cranberry, vitamin C and other important herbs and nutrients for women in the Vitamin Guide. (Always talk with your doctor before adding supplements to your diet.)
Whether you’re living with arthritis or osteoporosis, or you’re trying to address bone and joint concerns before they start, there are many foods and supplements shown to help build stronger bones and reduce joint pain. Read labels closely and make sure you’re getting what you need — 90% of women don’t get the recommended amount of daily calcium, and many are also low in vitamin D (which your body needs to absorb calcium).
In addition to regular exercise, there are many nutrients shown to support a healthy heart such as CoQ10, fish oil and garlic. Discover more practical, proactive approaches for heart health in the Vitamin Guide. (Remember to talk with your doctor before taking new supplements or discontinuing medication.)
Pick up where your healthy diet leaves off by supplementing with a daily multivitamin. Look for specially formulated multivitamins for women’s health, packed with the nutrients and minerals you need such as vitamins B, D, and E, and iron.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, so take your heart health and your blood pressure seriously. Your doctor may recommend that you have a blood pressure monitor at home for regular use — an easy and convenient way to catch and track any issues early.
Trying to fit more exercise into your busy schedule? Walking is a simple way to do it. Add more steps to your day by walking to the store, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking farther from the door, or making a family walk part of your morning or evening routine. Easily keep track of everyone’s progress with pedometers clipped to your waistbands, and don’t underestimate the value of good walking shoes to help your comfort, posture, and stamina.
Pump some iron at home. Resistance exercise is essential for maintaining healthy muscles and bones, and having weights at home makes it easier to incorporate into your daily routine. Exercise weights are available in a range of types and sizes—depending on your needs, choose from simple hand weights and dumbbells; or ankle, wrist and vest weights you can wear; or even full home gyms.
Yoga and Pilates offer many health benefits for women of all fitness levels, abilities, and ages. Reduce your stress levels and stretch and strengthen your body. Whether you’re practicing at home or attending classes, find the yoga and Pilates accessories you need such as mats, blocks, bands, balls and videos.
When you’re on the go and need a healthy snack or meal alternative, check out meal replacement bars and shakes. They’re a quick, delicious way to get the vitamins, nutrients and calories you need for sustained energy — and many bars and shakes fit in your purse or glove box for easy access.
