Best Supplements For Women's Health


Women's health has a unique set of nutritional requirements that change at different stages of life. Getting enough of the right nutrients can help spell happiness at any age. Nature's Sunshine's supplements for women provide those nutrients necessary for maintaining women's health.

During puberty, girls undergo major growth spurts, accumulation of important bone mass and the onset of menstruation. Girls continue to build bones through the mid-20s. The bone mass built during childhood, teenage years and young adulthood support the body for rest of its lifetime. Adequate calcium intake is essential to strengthen the bones during these critical years. Calcium works best in conjunction with magnesium and vitamin D for healthy, strong bones and teeth.

Appropriate iron intake becomes important once girls begin menstruating. In the body, iron is a component in the production of hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Iron is lost through menstrual bleeding. Good sources of iron in the diet include meat, fish, poultry, legumes and spinach. Taking iron with vitamin C increases the body's ability to absorb iron. Observing these tips and providing the body with essential nutrients with Nature's Sunshine's supplements for women can help improve a women's health.

Nutritional Help for PMS

  • Proper nutrition is important when dealing with PMS. Your body has increased energy needs before and during menstruation. Increasing your protein intake can provide that extra energy.
  • Watch your sodium intake, which can lead to fluid retention and bloating.
  • B vitamins may help offset fatigue and moodiness.

NSP Supplements for Women's Health

Depending on your diet, supplements for women by Nature's Sunshine can help make up the difference between what nutrients you get from the foods you eat and the recommended levels of vital nutrients your body needs at your stage of life. Nature's Sunshine has a full line of nutritional supplements for women of all ages.

Health in Natural Fiber Supplements:

Natural fiber supplements provide digestive support for improved health.

Fiber for Breast Cancer Prevention





Breast cancer prevention efforts and awareness can help you reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Steps such as self-tests, routine check-ups and adjusting your lifestyle can make a difference. For example, increasing your fiber intake may do more than just support intestinal health; it may also decrease your risk of breast cancer. A recent report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that increased dietary fiber consumption protects against the risk of breast cancer. Women who consumed the most fiber averaged an 11 percent lower risk of breast cancer compared to those who ate the least.

The reviewers evaluated data from 10 published studies of breast cancer risk and dietary fiber intake. More than 700,000 study participants were involved, and the studies looked at women's diets and cancer risks from a period of 7 to 18 years.

Overall, the report found an 11 percent reduced risk of breast cancer for the highest compared to the lowest intake of dietary fiber. Variables such as alcohol use, hormone replacement therapy, body weight and family history of breast cancer were taken into account. The report also showed that for each 10 grams of additional fiber a woman eats daily, her risk of breast cancer drops by approximately 7 percent.

The researchers concluded that, "This meta-analysis provides evidence of a significant inverse dose-response association between dietary fiber intake and breast cancer risk," suggesting that a healthy, daily dose of fiber supplements could support breast cancer prevention efforts.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, most Americans don't get enough fiber.

The guideline states that dietary fiber is a nutrient of public health concern in American diets and suggests choosing foods that provide more fiber. The guidelines recommend that women eat at least 25 grams of fiber per day and men eat at least 38 grams, but the usual intake is only 15 grams per day. High-fiber supplements can help meet optimal daily fiber amounts.

Pro-G-Yam 500 Cream – Natural Progesterone for a Healthy Lifestyle


As the body ages, there is a significant reduction in progesterone levels. Studies have shown that absorbing natural progesterone through products such as a progesterone cream can lead to many benefits including:

  • Mood regulation
  • Maintaining normal blood sugar levels
  • Bone formation and strength
  • Increased skin elasticity
  • Utilization of fat for energy
  • Cell oxygenation

In addition to the internal benefits associated with regular use of progesterone cream, Pro-G-Yam carries the advantage of being healthy for the skin. Containing a unique herbal base, healthy oils and aloe leaf juice, Pro-G-Yam revitalizes the skin, leaving it soft and supple.     

Progesterone Cream and Menopause

For menopausal women, a sharp decline in progesterone is capable of setting off a chain reaction of unwanted side affects related to hormonal imbalance. It is suggested that progesterone cream is capable of helping manage many of the symptoms associated with menopause including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Vaginal dryness

About Natural Progesterone

Natural progesterone is a steroidal hormone that is produced in the ovaries and created with greater frequency after ovulation, as well as during pregnancy in the placenta. Natural progesterone is also produced in the adrenal glands and has been discovered in a number of plants including the walnut tree and the yam family. As a topical application, progesterone cream avoids being metabolized and is quickly absorbed for maximum efficiency.
