Vitamins, supplements, and minerals for women 40+
March 5, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree!
Vitamins, supplements, and minerals are crucial for good health, especially for women 40 and older. The human body requires more than 45 vitamins and minerals to maintain good health. The only vitamin that our body can make is vitamin D, all others must be ingested. Subtle deficiencies in several vitamins have been associated with chronic diseases like atherosclerosis, cancer, and osteoporosis.
But does this mean you should take vitamins to prevent disease?
The vast number of advertisements and claims made by manufacturers and distributors of vitamins, supplements, and minerals certainly want to make you believe that you should. But you should take vitamins, supplements, and minerals with caution because some may cause harm.
And if too much of a good thing is bad for you, how much should you take?
In this workshop you will learn:
- What vitamins are essential for good health
- Vitamins and supplements that are recommended for women 40+
- How much you should take – daily recommended dietary intake
- The benefits and risks of taking vitamins and supplements

Being a healthcare professional I felt compelled to start a group for women willing to care for their own health and well-being. Drawing on my expertise and many years of experience in women’s health in general—and menopause in particular—I started the WHIM (Women’s Health In Midlife) Network.
