Supplements for Women

Women have different needs from men—especially as they age. From prioritizing breast and hormone health to managing the changes associated with menopause, and even maintaining optimal bone health, women’s health goals require a specialized approach. And fortunately, certain supplements can play an important role in their wellness and longevity.

Bone Health

Don’t let intimacy fall to the wayside. Several supplements can help promote healthy sexual function and response so you can enjoy a healthy sex life for years to come.

Vitamins and Minerals

Getting essential vitamins and minerals is a must for anyone, but especially for women as they get older. Add a multivitamin or other comprehensive formula to your wellness routine.

Best supplements for women

The best supplements for women should support the specific health needs of, well, women! While a multivitamin should be a mainstay in your routine, just as it should be for men, don't forget about your other needs.

Bladder and urinary health are of a particular focus for women and luckily, there are supplements so you can drive past that rest stop. For your best bladder health day and night, try the triple-action horsetail, lindera and three-caper extract combo. A cranberry supplement is also a good option for urinary health.

Hormone balance and breast health are equally important. Have your veggies and take them, too, with hormone support in the form of cruciferous vegetable extracts and well-known DHEA. For more intimate needs, a targeted women's probiotic for vaginal and digestive health should be a part of your routine. Finally, for pregnant women, good prenatal vitamins are a must.

And don't forget about supporting general health with tried-and-true nutrients like your letter vitamins (especially the B vitamins), cellular energy powerhouse CoQ10, omega-3 fish oil for heart and brain health, and curcumin for whole-body health, including supporting a healthy inflammatory response.

Top supplements that support bone health

No bones about it, maintaining healthy bones, especially as we age, is an essential part of women's health—especially for those who have already been through menopause. And when it comes to keeping those bones healthy, there are a few standout nutrients that every woman should have in their regimen.

As we get older, we lose bone density over time—and it can impact our quality of life. To ensure you're promoting healthy bone density, try vitamin K2. It encourages the activity of cells that support bone mineralization, the process of binding and depositing calcium into the bones. And since calcium makes up most of the physical structure of the bone, having enough is a necessity. Combining it with vitamin D—critical for bone health in its own right—supports optimal calcium absorption.

And don't forget about collagen supplements! More than just for your skin, collagen is crucial for bone strength, flexibility and mineral density. If you really want to up the ante, make sure the formulas you're choosing also contain bone-friendly trace minerals like magnesium, zinc, manganese, boron and silicon.

What supplements should women over 50 take?

If you're not already supporting your general health with a women's multivitamin, it's time to add one into your rotation. Women generally require more calcium, folate and iron than men—something that should be reflected in their supplement regimen. Most specialized formulas for women will contain higher amounts of each nutrient compared to those designed for their male counterparts.

You're prioritizing your health and feeling good…but you've hit the dreaded stage of menopause. Fortunately, there are supplements that can support you through this change. Certain nutrients, including a special Siberian rhubarb extract, can help relieve some of the less-than-desirable signs and discomforts associated with menopause. To maintain your sexual health and stamina over 50, turn to maca root and cordyceps for a little extra help.
