Women go through particular and momentous stages of life. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, breastfeeding and the menopause affect both body and mind. They can be challenging for many women. Micronutrients and herbal preparations can help to feel healthy and vital and can support women's health during challenging times.
The female body has special needs in all phases of life. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the need for vitamins, minerals and trace elements of the expectant mother and child is increased. For example, zinc, iron, iodine, various B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids are important for the growth and development of the fetus. A daily intake of folic acid is also a requisite for the healthy development of the child. It plays an important role in the prevention of fetal malformations (so-called neural tube defects).
During menopause, calcium and vitamin D are particularly important. Due to decreasing oestrogen, bone loss increases during menopause. Calcium and vitamin D have a preventive effect against osteoporosis.
Hormonal changes during menopause can lead to various symptoms such as hot flushes and sleep disorders. Herbal preparations can help to alleviate these symptoms. Angelica root, yams and peony have proved effective against these complaints and can be valuable companions during menopause.
With regular exercise, relaxation, and a balanced, high-quality diet, you can actively contribute to a healthy lifestyle in every phase of life. A healthy lifestyle also has a positive effect on hormonal balance.
