How important are supplements for women's health?

How important are they to you? Whether you're just trying to boost your immunity with the changing of the seasons, or thinking more about prevention as we head into Breast Cancer Awareness month, supplements should be top on every woman's health checklist, according to Donnica Moore, MD, president of Sapphire Women’s Health Group and and editor in chief of Women’s Health For Life. Her presentation at last week's Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus focused on the importance of combining supplements with proper nutrition, sleep, and exercise. It's easy to shy away from new supplements if we don't know what they do or how to take them, and discovering which supplements are right for you can take time. But here's an easy place to start: Check out our women's health archive, filled with information on the top supplements for fertility and pregnancy, menopause and other hormone-related conditions, and stress. Also be sure to read The Breast-Health Diet, our October feature, with expert-recommended tips for promoting breast health, including upping your intake of vitamin D and folic acid.
