Vitality from Beeline contains Iron, Folic Acid and Vitamin D to help reduce fatigue and contribute to improved performance.
Organic Iron is absorbed quickly and is gentle on stomach. A lack of iron can cause Iron Deficiency Anaemia whereby the red blood cells do not carry sufficient oxygen around our bodies. Symptoms can include a feeling of tiredness, weakness, lack of concentration and dizziness. Women’s monthly menstruation is a common cause of anaemia as menstruation reduces iron resources. It is also known that during pregnancy women need a higher concentration of iron.
Folic Acid is also very important for women considering a pregnancy. The Irish Department of Health advises women to take Folic Acid supplements daily to help prevent Neural Tube defects in the foetus. Beeline Vitality provides an optimal supply of Folic Acid plus Iron and Vitamin D before and after pregnancy. But of course, as some pregnancies are unplanned it is recommended that all women of child bearing age take Folic Acid to help the development of a healthy foetus. Folic Acid is also believed to support heart health by reducing the risk of heart attack or heart disease in both men and women. Check our article about the benefits of folic acid.
Beeline Vitality also contains Vitamin D to help boost our Immune System thus reducing the risk of viruses such as colds and flu. Vitamin D is synthesised in the skin upon exposure to sunlight. During the darker, winter months when we’re all indoors or wrapped up and there’s limited direct sun the opportunity to make Vitamin D is reduced. There is a view that Vitamin D plays a role in our mood with a deficiency contributing to a feeling of the ‘Winter Blues’. We can get Vitamin D from certain foods but often these foods such as oily fish, cheese, butter, egg yolks and beef, are not consumed in sufficient quantities. As a consequence of these factors, studies have shown that many women are deficient in Vitamin D and it is now highly recommended that a Vitamin D supplement is taken.
This vitamin is also very important for healthy bones and teeth as it helps our bodies absorb essential calcium and phosphorus. Without sufficient levels of calcium, many women, especially post-menopausal women, could be at risk of osteomalacia, a softening of the bones and osteoporosis, a thinning of the bones. Both of these conditions can increase the risk of fractures and falls especially in older women.
While a healthy diet is essential for general good health, it is good to know that some nutritional support from Beeline Vitality can lead to greater overall health, vitality and wellbeing for women.
