INTRODUCTION : Women are the backbone of their family. It’s no question then how important it is for you to take care of your own support system. Importance of Nutrition in Women’s Health : While a great deal of focus is on drug therapies, there are also natural ways to address the health concerns of women. The most direct way would be through the diet. The right food can not only support her mood, boost her energy, and help her to maintain a healthy weight, it can also be a huge support through the different stages in a woman’s life. The female body always has an ongoing, complex interplay of hormones, and many things can upset this delicate balance. Chemicals in the food supply or an improper diet are key causal factors. Several nutrients are particularly important for women during adulthood, especially if they are capable of becoming pregnant.

At every stage of women's lives, nutrition and regular exercise are the cornerstones of good health and optimal energy.

Why supplements alone aren't enough? In the past, women have often tried to make up deficits in their diet though the use of vitamins and supplements. However, while supplements can be a useful safeguard against occasional nutrient shortfalls, they can’t compensate for an unbalanced or unhealthy diet. A Lack of proper nutrition can make it difficult for the body to repair itself and for the organs to functions properly. For these reasons, nutrition should be the starting place for any health rehabilitation program. Iodine and magnesium are two minerals that women have a tendency to not get an adequate supply of, a problem that is easily fixed by awareness, supplementation, and a proper diet. This will help in the prevention of dysfunction of the female organs and, therefore, in the overall health of the individual. Women need more iron than men to make up for the amount of iron they lose in their menstrual period. Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in women.
Common health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.
