Maybe modern science hasn’t cracked the code to stop aging, but research has proven that supplements can help make a real difference in how we age.
Throughout a woman’s life, her body’s nutritional and biological needs shift. Depending on her age, lifestyle, diet, and life stage, there are different natural female health supplements that a woman should consider taking.

All the above + B12:
As you get older, your gut isn’t able to absorb B12 as efficiently as it used to. In addition, if you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux, you may be taking an over the counter prescription called proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs). Studies have shown that taking these drugs for more than two years increases the risk of vitamin B12 deficiency.
Omega 3s for memory and brain function: 1,100 mg daily
Before you begin taking any supplements specific to women’s health, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor or practitioner. Source: Fullscript
