There is one more super beneficial supplement that you don’t see on my Top 6 Supplements for Women – Probiotics.
Probiotics have been a part of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern diets for thousands of years, in the form of fermented unpasteurized milk and vegetable products such as pickles and sauerkraut.
I didn’t include them in my original post only because I get mine through drinking my homebrewed Kombucha and eating fermented foods a few times per week, so I don’t currently take them as a supplement.
Unfortunately most people don’t get them in the modern American diet so I wanted to make sure to include them as Bonus Number 7 Top Supplement for Women.
#7 – Probiotics
People with deficient good gut bacteria or “probiotics” can experience food allergies, decreased immune function, asthma, and digestive issues. Probiotics conquer potentially dangerous organisms in the intestine, improve immune response, and suppress excessive inflammation. Additionally, probiotics promote the function of the intestinal inner lining to help nutrient absorption.
Due to modern diets, lifestyle, pollution, and the use of antibiotics, the beneficial bacteria in your microbiome is at risk and many people are deficient.
I recommend Garden of Life Raw Probiotics for Women. They are specifically formulated for women with benefits including bowel and digestive regularity, colon health, and vaginal health. Also the ingredients in this supplement are high quality and contain no fillers. It’s best to take 3 capsules per day, one with each meal.
Again, it’s important to combine any recommended supplements with a nutritious diet for optimum health. And feel free to check with your trusted healthcare provider before starting a new supplement.
