Clever nutrition specifically designed for women
A woman’s body is a complex, finely tuned machine. Each day it accomplishes many miraculous tasks and for the most part, is fairly self-sufficient. The regulation of hormones, maintenance of bone density, reproductive health, urinary tract health and immune function are just some of the areas of health that concern all women. An increasing number of women are taking proactive measures in an attempt to ward off or delay the effects that ageing and hormone imbalances can have on the body. Part of this self-care may involve choosing the correct nutritional supplements. Solgar® has formulated the most innovative supplements suitable for women at various stages of their lives. These nutrient formulations may support good health when combined with a health-promoting diet and lifestyle.
Ultimate Bone Support
Many nutrients are needed to support the formation and health of bones. As we age, we are generally more at risk of suffering loss of bone density or osteoporosis, particularly for women who are inactive, underweight, have a low calcium intake or are in (or past) the menopause. Ultimate Bone Support provides calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, manganese and vitamin K, all of which help to maintain normal, healthy bones. This formulation contains scientifically researched and highly absorbable vitamins. Vitamin D, in particular, contributes to normal bone health and development by promoting the absorption of calcium.
Skin, Nails and Hair Formula
Poor diet, stress and poor digestion can leave our skin, nails and hair tired and unhealthy. Skin, Nails and Hair Formula is a comprehensive blend of nutrients specifically combined to help build collagen and keratin, the major building blocks of skin, nails and hair. These nutrients include zinc and copper, which help maintain normal, healthy skin, nails (zinc) and hair pigmentation (copper). Vitamin C is another vital ingredient of Skin, Nails and Hair Formula, as it helps normal collagen formation for the healthy functioning of skin, bones and cartilage.

Multivitamins created for you
Women have different nutritional requirements from men and, as such, may prefer to choose a multi-nutrient formula designed specifically with them in mind. The menstrual cycle involves many hormonal changes and the monthly loss of blood results in extra requirements for the blood-building nutrients. Women in today’s world often lead hectic lifestyles, they are not able to eat as healthily as they would like and suffer from severe stress. The need for a healthy diet and active lifestyle is obvious, therefore supplements are becoming a more common addition to support our bodies.
