In this fast-paced world, we tend to be neglectful towards our health needs. In the midst of the struggle to maintain work-life balance, what suffers the most is our diet. And yes, this becomes even more difficult if you live alone. However, we should not really ignore the demands of our bodies, especially after a certain age. Women’s bodies go through many changes with pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, etc., and so we need to strike a good balance between important nutrients and vitamins in our bodies. With September being ‘Poshan Maah’ or ‘Nourishing Month’, what better time to talk about health than now?
Here are five nutrients that are absolutely essential for women to include in their diets:
Calcium: Drink milk at the right time!
We cannot stress enough the importance of calcium in a woman’s body. To avoid this joint pain and have proper bones throughout your life, calcium is one of the nutrients that must be enough in your diet. Calcium deficiency can cause you all kinds of bone problems, and frankly, even thinking about it is scary. Milk, yogurt, and broccoli are good sources of calcium. And please, ask your moms to also include calcium-rich foods in their diet!
When women have enough iron, they are males!
Well, maybe the bad joke could have been avoided but iron in your diet? not at all! Women lose iron when they bleed during their period, especially if they have heavy periods. So to replenish our reserves, you must provide your body with an adequate amount of iron. In fact, women lose a lot of iron from their bodies at birth, too. So iron intake is really essential for a woman’s body or else there is a chance that you will end up with anemia. Non-vegetarians have a range of options to meet their iron needs through meat products such as chicken liver, tuna, and turkey. For vegetarians, nothing can beat spinach.
Beware of Vitamin B12 deficiency, it is very common!
Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common problem but it also needs immediate attention. Some of the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency are fatigue, headache, pale skin, loss of vision, and digestive problems among others. If you encounter any of these issues, you should definitely not ignore the signs and check your health. Now, to get a source of B12 in your bodies, more non-vegetarian options are available such as poultry, fish, and eggs. Although milk, yogurt, and soy milk are also good options for vegetarians.
Woman, go get some magnesium
Ladies, magnesium is another really important mineral that your body needs. This mineral is equally useful in strengthening your bones. Magnesium also plays an important role in strengthening your muscles and neurological activities. Losing minerals in your body can expose you to a list of problems like blood pressure, heart and diabetes too! To avoid these serious health issues, you should add beans, grains, nuts and green vegetables to your diet.
He would like your name and the announcement Yad Hein?
Believe me, it just became Saltbae! It’s really weird how we forget these important lessons as we grow up. Iodine is highly required for metabolic functions and is also very important for pregnant and lactating women. Adequate iodine intake can reduce the risk of breast cancer and miscarriage and also improve reproductive health. Aside from salt, there are other good sources of iodine, such as fish, eggs, and seafood in general.
I hope you remember to take care of your body too!
A study says seeing #Fitspiration pictures on Instagram makes women feel bad about their bodies. So, it’s not really inspiration
