What are the Most Effective Probiotics and Supplements for Women? Depends… - Featured Media

There should be one easy step to selecting the best vitamins, supplements, probiotics, and prebiotics.

We all know that health begins on the inside, and getting the proper nutrition and supplements is key to happiness and good health.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, thirty-one percent of the U.S. population is at risk of at least one vitamin deficiency or anemia, with 23%, 6.3%, and 1.7% at risk of deficiency in 1, 2, or 3–5 vitamins or anemia. The particulars vary by age, gender, and other demographics. But you are more likely to hear about hair dyes, makeup, designer clothes, and fad diets in the news, social media and television. You don’t see much about vitamin deficiency or anemia in the headlines.

Even with statistics, nobody is the same. All women are different. We all know vitamins, minerals and supplements are important to your health, but which ones do you need? There is no “one size fits all” solution. To make matters even more confusing, everybody needs a different amount. Calculating dosages can be a real challenge.

You’ve probably been inundated with articles and ads that recommend different supplements, vitamins and probiotics for women in their 20s, this for women over 40, and this for women over 60.  With so many conflicting opinions and so many options on the market, it’s always been nearly impossible to know which is right for you.

Should I take probiotics? Which vitamins should I take? What about herbal supplements like ashwagandha and ginger? What does my body need? You can spend hours and hours doing research, and by the time you’ve gathered all of the ingredients that you think you need, you have a cupboard full of supplements, probiotics, vitamins, and herbal extracts which you may never finish, or worse, may not even work for you.  It is all very confusing and can be quite overwhelming.

The best supplements for women are not to be found in an article you may read about what to take at your age. The best supplements for you are the ones that your specific body needs. This is where Viome’s new Precision Supplements™ service comes in handy. With Precision Supplements, we take out the guessing game, eliminate the messy cupboard, and clean up the pill organizer. Precision Supplements is a precise formula made to order for you, targeting your unique cellular, mitochondrial and gut microbiome needs.

Here’s how it works:

1.       Measure:

Our Gut Intelligence™ and Health Intelligence™ tests measure your health down to a molecular level, from your mitochondrial health and cellular health to your oxidative stress and gut health. You will have access to these 30 unique scores on the Viome App, so you can keep track of your progress.

2.       Nourish:

We provide precise food and supplement recommendations: what superfoods are best for you, what foods you should avoid, proper serving sizes for foods, and dosages of supplements. After subscribing, you receive a box in the mail each month. It contains your Precision Supplement capsules, designed just for you. Whether you should take ginger, curcumin, ashwagandha, dandelion root extract, Vitamin C, or acai will all be determined by your test results. There are more than 200 natural ingredients that are selected from for the formula in your daily Precision Supplement sachets (8 capsules), all in the correct dosages. 

You also get daily customized prebiotics and probiotics designed just for your gut microbiota. Mix the powder with a glass of water, juice, or your protein shake each day and enjoy!

Precision Supplements give you lust what you need, nothing that you don’t.

3.       Improve:

These supplements aren’t designed for all women or just for women of a certain age. They are customized just for you, made to order in the U.S. The idea is that you will improve your gut health and cellular health, feel better, and look better, all the while tracking your progress through re-resting and on your Viome app.

Viome gives you clear recommendations on why a particular nutrient may be recommended for you. Some examples of ingredients that could be in your personal formula are below:

Probiotics for Women

Taking probiotics has been shown to improve many aspects of health, including clearing up skin, preventing urinary tract infections and yeast infections, improving overall immunity, and helping with digestion. These are just a few reasons to add probiotics to your daily routine. Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and Saccharomyces are just a few of the most commonly prescribed strains. Viome Precision Supplements are formulated with all of the strains your body needs.

Ashwagandha for Women’s Health

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Ashwagandha’s role in stress reduction is related to its support of women’s reproductive health. This mineral-dense herb can enhance communication with the endocrine system, helping strengthen your adrenal glands, increase blood production, and reduce cortisol, all which can help with stress.

The Sensoril® Ashwagandha Extract included in your Precision Supplements (if it is recommended for you) contains 10% Withanolide Glycosides and 32% Oligosaccharides. Ashwagandha is one of the ingredients that can help improve or maintain your Cellular Stress, Immune System Activation, Inflammatory Activity, and Mitochondrial Health scores.

Ginger for Women’s Health

Ginger has been shown to improve digestion, decrease inflammation, reduce muscle pain, reduce menstrual pain, and increase immunity. The Ginger Extract included in your Precision Supplements (if recommended) contains 5% gingerols. The Gingever Ginger Extract included in your capsules contains 10% gingerols.

Daily Vitamins for Women’s Health

Taking daily vitamins has a new meaning. Long gone are the days of taking a huge tablet or gummy, or handfuls of different supplemental pills. Precision Supplements uses over 200 ingredients to be selected from for your personalized formula, including calcium to help with bone density, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, iron, folate, and more. The ultimate, personalized daily vitamin for women is here.
