Breast Health – Remedies Magazine October 2012

With all the controversy over women’s health, there’s one truth that can’t be challenged: Women’s and men’s bodies are different, and the way they need to take care of themselves is different too.

Some of those are out of our control, but prevention of others may be within our grasp.

6 Essential Minerals for Women’s Health – To Your Health Magazine April 2011

Minerals are essential micronutrients that are required in small amounts for the body to function properly. Untreated mineral deficiencies can cause serious health problems including endocrine (hormone) imbalances, osteoporosis and anemia. Different minerals play a primary role at different stages of life. For example, menstruating women often need extra iron until they hit menopause and then they can cross iron off their list, as it contributes to oxidative damage in the body. Another example is that women typically develop bone density during the first 35 years of life, creating a specific mineral reserve that forms the foundation for bone health during the postmenopausal years, when bone density tends to decline. The main sources of minerals are certain types of whole foods, but following a diet that contains all the necessary nutrients can be a challenge for any woman. Taking a multivitamin with added essential minerals can help you reach the recommended amount of minerals you need to stay healthy. Food-based natural mineral supplements are also very beneficial.
