Nutritional Requirement for Women: WellWoman

Updated: Sep 28, 2021

Micronutrients, often referred to as vitamins and minerals, are vital to healthy development, disease prevention and wellbeing. With the exception of vitamin D, micronutrients are not produced in the body and must be derived from the diet. Micronutrient deficiencies can have devastating consequences.


A healthy, balanced diet is the foundation of leading a healthy lifestyle for women. Women have different nutritional requirement mainly because of the hormones they produce. Some of the most important vitamins and minerals for women include:

  • Iron is an essential mineral that helps carry oxygen around the body, supports immune function, and plays an essential role in rapid growth and development.

  • Calcium is an important mineral that plays a critical role in building and maintaining healthy bones. During menopause and as women age, their bone density is affected, which makes calcium intake more important than ever.

  • Vitamin B12 is a nutrient with several important functions - including helping the body convert food into fuel and supporting the normal functioning of the nervous system.

  • Folate is a B vitamin that is crucial before and during pregnancy. During early development, it helps in forming the neural tube and during pregnancy, it helps to reduce the risk of major birth defects.

  • Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and therefore helps keep our bones, teeth, and muscles healthy. It’s also known to help support a healthy immune system.


Wellwoman is an advanced range of women’s supplement specifically designed for the nutrition and health needs of modern women supporting:

  • General health and wellbeing: Vitamin B6, B12, folate contribute reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

  • Female health: Evening Primrose and Starflower Oils are included. Vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, plus iron which contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells to help maintain energy.

  • Immune Health: Looking after your immune health is important throughout the year. Wellwoman includes selenium and zinc which contribute to the normal function of the immune system.

  • Skin, Hair and Nails: Most of us would like a little extra support for our skin, hair, and nails. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. Collagen is the substance that gives skin its elasticity. Plus, biotin, niacin (Vitamin B3), zinc and riboflavin (Vitamin B2) all contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of nails and biotin to the maintenance of hair.
