WELLWOMAN 50+

PRODUCT DETAILS

Intelligent nutrition for women over 50

Wellwoman 50+ has been specifically designed to help safeguard the nutritional needs of women aged 50 and above and forms part of the Wellwoman range, the UK’s number 1 women’s supplement brand. There is now a great deal of research evidence to suggest that micronutrient supplementation in individuals aged over 50 can be beneficial. Wellwoman 50+ contains a comprehensive range of 26 vitamins, minerals and plant derived nutrients to support key areas of health important to women over 50, including heart, brain and eye health.

Supporting an Active Lifestyle

Getting older shouldn’t mean you should have to change your lifestyle and the activities you have always enjoyed. Wellwoman 50+ contains vitamins B6, pantothenic acid and iron which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B2 and copper contribute to normal energy release. Immune health is also a serious consideration as you get older. Zinc, selenium and vitamins B6, B12, C and D have also been included in the formula as they contribute to the normal function of the immune system.

Normal Vision

Your eyes are one of the most complex organs and as you get older it’s even more important than ever to look after them. The retina and the lens can be damaged over the years by exposure to sunlight, smoke and pollution. Wellwoman 50+ provides vitamin C and E which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress plus mineral zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.

Heart and Circulation

Wellwoman 50+ contains thiamin (vit.B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart as well as a combination of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 which contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism, and normal red blood cell formation. The formula also includes vitamin C which increases non-haem (plant source) iron absorption. This is especially important with vegetarian diets as iron contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body to all the major organs.

Brain and Nervous System

Thiamin (vit. B1) and vitamins B6 and B12 with biotin and vitamin C contribute to the maintenance of normal function of the nervous system, combined with pantothenic acid which contributes to normal mental performance.

Wellwoman 50+ contains a comprehensive range of 26 vitamins, minerals and plant derived nutrients to support key areas of health important to women over 50. Wellwoman 50+ contains vitamins B6 and B12, copper and iron which contribute to normal energy release.

When is Wellwoman 50+ recommended?
Wellwoman 50+ is a daily nutritional safeguard for women in their 50s, 60s and beyond, to help maintain good health and vitality. There is no maximum length of time over which Wellwoman 50+ may be used.
Can Wellwoman 50+ be used simultaneously with medications?
Generally, Wellwoman 50+ may be used alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Wellwoman 50+ with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.
How many tablets does one pack of Wellwoman 50+ contain?
Wellwoman 50+ contains 30 tablets per pack. It is recommended to take one per day.
How and when should Wellwoman 50+ be used?
One tablet per day is recommended, with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Wellwoman 50+ should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Wellwoman 50+ is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablet to disintegrate too early.

Wellwoman 50+ has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
What are the active ingredients?
Please see nutritional information
How long does it take before experiencing any benefit?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Wellwoman 50+ to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. A regular intake is recommended.
Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.

All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
