In the enormous ocean of supplements, there are many products that tout they are “especially for” men or women.
But is that just marketing hype?
Well, let’s start by taking a look at nutrients.
The nutrients women need most
It is estimated that at least 30 percent of women are deficient in one or more nutrients, and that number jumps up as we age and especially if you use acid reducers.
Although ALL nutrients are important, for women these are the crucial ones:
Vitamins A, C and E: These are antioxidants that fight aging and damage from free radicals, as well as support the health of your heart, eyes, skin and brain.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is vital for bone health (especially for women with osteoporosis concerns), cardiovascular health, and strong immune system, and to help prevent mood disorders and hormonal imbalances.
B vitamins: Especially important here are vitamin B12 and folate. These help support a woman’s metabolism, prevent fatigue, boost brain function, and help prevent birth defects during pregnancy.
Calcium: Although it’s best known for bone health and osteoporosis prevention, calcium is also needed for heart and muscle function, and healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Iodine: Iodine is crucial for healthy thyroid function, and women are very susceptible to low-functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism).
Now for the flip side…
The nutrients men need most
Men also suffer from nutritional deficiencies, especially because many have a diet high in fast/convenience foods (sorry, guys, don’t shoot the messenger) and take acid reducers.
Here are the top nutritional needs for men:
Vitamin D: Like women, men also need vitamin D for bone, immune and heart health. Plus vitamin D helps encourage healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Vitamin K: Vitamin K is crucial for proper blood clotting and to prevent heart disease, which is the #1 killer of men in the US.
Magnesium: Magnesium helps to prevent high blood pressure, muscle spasms and headaches, and works with calcium to regulate heart rate.
Vitamin B12: Men are highly susceptible to B12 deficiency because of reduced absorption in the GI tract due to medication use. B12 deficiency can lead to nervous system problems and fatigue.
Vitamins A, C and E: Like women, men need these antioxidant vitamins to prevent disease and aging from free radicals.
Super Core has EVERYONE covered!
The great news is, Super Core multi-vitamin and mineral formula supports the needs of both men AND women!
Super Core contains therapeutic levels of all the nutrients I mentioned above, plus a variety of other essential vitamins and minerals.
And Super Core’s effective blend goes WAY beyond most other multis and includes natural sources of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories!
- Antioxidants are your body’s “protective army” against the dangerous effects of free radicals.
Free radicals have been associated with premature aging, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, Type 2 diabetes, cataracts and arthritis, among other things.
Antioxidants help control free radicals and combat their dangerous effects…but they can only carry out this important job if there are enough of them!
Super Core contains nine different antioxidants to help counteract free radicals in your body!
- Anti-inflammatories are also becoming increasingly important for the average person.
Many of us are in states of chronic inflammation due to things like consumption of unhealthy fats, eating lots of refined carbohydrates, smoking, medication use and stress.
Super Core’s unique formula contains the soothing natural anti-inflammatories turmeric, Boswellia extract and ginger—herbs that have been recognized for centuries for their inflammation-fighting properties.
Another need for both men and women—a strong microbiome!
Similar to multi-vitamin formulas, there are “special” probiotic formulas for men and women out there, but is that really necessary?
Although research on the microbiome continues to uncover almost limitless health benefits from a strong population of beneficial gut bacteria, the primary functions of a probiotic supplement are to support immune health, digestive health and (for women) vaginal health.
Since the human gut has a very specific bacterial balance, it’s important to seek out a formula that addresses the unique needs of your entire intestinal tract. That means getting both Lactobacillus strains (which colonize in the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium (which inhabit the colon).
Taking a complete formula that “covers all bases” naturally helps to enhance digestive health because your entire intestinal tract is responsible for completing the breakdown of your foods, absorbing nutrients and eliminating wastes! Digestion is the “foundation” on which strong health is built from head to toe.
In addition, since between 70-80 percent of your immune system resides in your gut, having a healthy microbiome is the crucial key to a sharp functioning immune system! Your immune system not only protects you from infections and viruses (including COVID-19), but also heart disease and cancer too!
And ladies, regarding vaginal health—research has shown that the Lactobacillus species (especially Lactobacillus acidophilus) helps maintain a low, acidic pH to create an unfavorable environment for the growth of dangerous bacteria, yeast and viruses. (Important news for women who suffer from vaginal yeast infections.)
Super Shield to the rescue for men AND women!
Our Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula was carefully designed to include well-studied and proven strains of both the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species.
It features Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1—the true “gold standard” of Lactobacillus strains—plus 12 other top-quality strains, each of which has its own unique “specialty” in how it supports your health!
Super Shield also contains 25mg of FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides) prebiotic fiber, which ‘feeds’ the bacteria on the way through the intestinal tract and increases all-important Bifidobacterium levels.
And the unique delayed-release DRCaps™ help to preserve the integrity of the bacteria as they pass through the acidic environment of the stomach, and support their proper “delivery” to the areas of the gut which they colonize.
Super Shield has been helping to create happy guts and optimal health for our satisfied clients (both men and women) all over the world for 11 years and still going strong!
Now THAT’S success!
