We've all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." And we hear that you also have to take your daily vitamins. But with hectic schedules and work/life balance, most women tend to put taking their vitamins on a to-do list and don't always get to check it off.
Taking a series of vitamins can be time consuming and not always ideal. That's why in celebration of Women's Health Month, we're here to remind you that a multivitamin only takes a fraction of the time and gives you all the vitamins you need to stay healthy!
From A-Z, a multivitamin can keep you feeling fabulous and help you with:
Bone health: According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, women are more likely to develop osteoporosis than men, as the female bone losses mass at a more rapid rate. Calcium and Vitamin D have been proven to help build bone mass and help slow down bone loss.
Menstruation: With each cycle women are more at risk of becoming iron-deficient and developing anemia. Iron is essential to a women everyday to keep up with their monthly visit from mother nature.
Healthy immune system: Boosting the immune system keeps women feeling and looking radiant, like their favorite celebrity! So daily doses of vitamins A, C, E, zinc and B vitamins are key to staying healthy.
