The Science of our Women’s Health Support Bundle using Liposomal Vitamins below:
Vitamin B12 has many roles in your body. It supports the normal function of your nerve cells and is needed for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. For most adults, the recommended daily intake (RDI) is 2.4 mcg, though it’s higher for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you have vitamin B12 deficiency, you could become anemic
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
For adults, the recommended daily amount for vitamin C is 65 to 90 milligrams (mg) a day, and the upper limit is 2,000 mg a day
Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D3? Here’s What You Need To Know
Vitamin does more than just create healthy bones. According to the Mayo Clinic, it can have a positive impact on mood disorders
Unlike vitamin D2, which is plant-based, D3 can only be found in animal products. For those avoiding meat or animal products Vitamin D3 is essential.
Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants
Does Gluthathione make your skin better? According to A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study , subjects who received GSH showed a significant reduction in wrinkles compared with those taking placebo.
Can glutathione increase fertility in females?
It has been reported that glutathione deficiency is related to premature ovarian aging and even ovarian cancer (Lim et al., 2013). Another study found that for women undergoing IVF, higher levels of glutathione in a woman’s follicle translated into increased fertilization rates
Nurturing female health with Turmeric / Curcumin
Turmeric is a healing and nurturing plant, offering protection from damage associated with modern day living as well as specific support for female health conditions.
Premenstrual Symptoms and cycle balance
A build-up of the hormone oestrogen may result in women experiencing an irregular cycle, extended cycles (more than 36 days in length), heavy periods, painful periods, PMS, weight gain or acne. In the longer term, these hormone imbalances may also affect other hormone glands such as the thyroid and lead to conditions (such as fibroids) or fertility challenges. This “excess” of oestrogen is significantly influenced by the efficiency of the liver to break-down or eliminate this build-up. Turmeric’s liver-supporting properties mean that it can play a functional role in moderating hormone imbalance through this mechanism too.
Egg preservation and fertility
While men are able to produce more sperm through the course of their life, women start their life with a set amount of egg – around 7 million immature eggs – called ‘oocytes’. Preserving the quality of these oocytes is vital and means paying attention to a diet and lifestyle that is rich in antioxidant support.
Before an egg is ready to go through the ovulation process (egg release), the immature oocyte has to develop further and mature. This process requires surges in hormone levels and a by-product of this process is a greater production of a molecule called ROS (reactive oxygen species). Oocytes are sensitive to this kind of oxidative stress initiated by the ROS. Normally, an oocyte is able to protect itself if the ROS levels stay fairly balanced, but if there is an over-production of ROS then the oocytes are at risk of being damaged. This may lead to ‘anovulation’ – where the ovaries do not release an oocyte during a menstrual cycle. Its therefore essential that women protect themselves from increased exposure and higher levels of oxidative stress.
This is where valuable plants like turmeric can offer great support Turmeric makes a nourishing accompaniment, alongside a good diet and specific vitamin and mineral support, for women looking to safe-guard their eggs and support their fertility in general.
Peri-Menopause and menopause
As women move into peri-menopause and then into full menopause, hormonal changes can result in an increase in symptoms of inflammation, such as body stiffness or general achiness. But increased inflammation is also associated with menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. This prolonged inflammation can be burdensome for the body, requiring extra nutrients keep inflammation under control. Inflammation also accelerates ageing, not just aesthetically but also within our internal organs and tissue. This is why minimising stress, eating well, exercising and getting enough rest and sleep are especially important during this life stage.
As women transition through the menopause they may experience an increase in joint pain and general wear and tear on their musculoskeletal system. Liposomal Turmeric / Curcumin has been clinically-proven to reduce joint pain by 86.2% within 21 days of use and reduced cartilage degeneration, joint tenderness and inflammation. It’s important to manage inflammation for bone health too. When inflammation takes hold, it can interfere with the way osteoclasts and osteoblasts (bone cells) operate and ‘remodel’ existing bone structure, effecting bone density and general skeletal health.
