What vitamins do over-50s need?
When you reach 50, it might be time to start thinking about introducing certain vitamins and supplements tailored to people your age.
As we get older, our bodies might not absorb the nutrients from food as effectively, meaning we’re more likely to become deficient in certain vitamins.
Some of the key vitamin supplements you may need to introduce when you’re over 50 are vitamin D and B12, Omega-3, and calcium.
Always check with your doctor or pharmacist if you think you may be deficient in any vitamins or minerals.
What vitamins should I take during pregnancy?
There are vitamins that are important for you to take during pregnancy, and vitamins you should strictly avoid as they may cause harm to your unborn baby.
If you’re pregnant or think you could be, it’s recommended that you take folic acid and a vitamin D supplement.
You should take 400 micrograms of folic acid every day, from before you become pregnant until you’re 12 weeks along.
This reduces the risk of problems in the baby’s development in the early stages of pregnancy.
Avoid cod liver oil or any supplements containing vitamin A as it could harm your baby - always check the label for retinol, as this is another word used to describe vitamin A.
Do women’s vitamins include oestrogen?
Vitamins do not contain oestrogen, but if you’re lacking this important hormone, there are vitamins out there that may be able to increase the amount your body produces.
The B vitamins may play a vital role in the creation of oestrogen, and in turn, a low level can reduce the level of oestrogen.
Vitamin D functions as a hormone within the body and can work together with oestrogen to fight things such as cardiovascular disease.
What vitamins should a man take when trying to conceive?
It’s not just women who should take vitamins when they’re trying to conceive, men can also reap the benefits of vitamins when it comes to improving sperm health.
Taking vitamin E and D may increase sperm mobility, while vitamin C may improve the quality of sperm.
Zinc supplements can help the sperm penetrate and fuse with the egg, in addition to boosting testosterone, sperm function, and sperm count.
Folic acid may be able to fix sperm abnormalities, resulting in a higher count of stronger, healthier sperm.
