Which vitamins are suited to an active 20-something?

Saturday, 9 November 2013

vitamin supplements

As with any supplement, quality far outweighs quantity! Choose a multivitamin supplement that ranks as an effective nutritional supplement and invest wisely in your health. Active women in their fertile stage of life require daily vitamin B, iron, vitamin C, magnesium and daily antioxidants such as pycnogenol, resveratrol or ubiquinol. One has to balance out the needs of an active lifestyle while replacing nutrients lost during the monthly cycle. Many women in this stage of life are battling with digestive problems which require fibre and probiotics. Your daily supplement should contain a minimum of: 500mg Calcium 10mg Iron 400ug Folate 500IU Vitamin D3 1000mg Vitamin C.

Dr. Maricia completed her MBChB degree at MEDUNSA and her two-year internship in Bloemfontein. It was during this time where she developed a strong interest in aesthetic medicine. She then decided to complete an introductory course in Botox and Fillers and fell deeply in love with the dynamic field. She moved to Kimberley in December 2015 and completed her community service in 2016 at the Kimberley Hospital Complex. She is a dedicated health enthusiast and especially takes pride in a healthy lifestyle as well as helping others to achieve the same. She struggled with many health issues during 2016 and could not find a single medical specialist who was able to explain what was wrong with her and how to treat it. She had to figure it out herself. It was through this journey where she came across many other women who dealt with the exact same problem and no one to help them. This made her realise that there has to be another way. There has to be a solution or place to look deeper into someone’s health and to solve imbalances that may occur. Along came The Renewal Institute. Their scope of practice is absolutely everything she is passionate about, everything her lifestyle involves and everything she lives to achieve every single day in her own life. Her goal is to dig deeper into wellness and health and to help people achieve balance and health. She wants people to feel great about themselves and to portray a health and beauty inside and outside. She is very excited about the promising future filled with opportunities to grow as a health ambassador at The Renewal Institute.

    I personally am not a fan of supplements…I’d rather eat healthy food.

    This is great, I always would just grab the vitamins that I have always used, but now I am going to do my research and buy what I need.
