    Hi I am not a woman by I guess supplements that can help to prevent common ailments in women are most welcome. My wife is 35 and have realised that the most common problem is bone problems. Sore joints either hip, knees or hands. Prevention will always be better than cure so if you can get a supplement that can take care of your health holistically that should be great.

      Hi thank you for your response. I am 36 years old and I am worried when I get older. I agree when you said prevention is better than cure. I want to prevent any possible ailment as i can. I am starting to get fit now and happy to the results. Can you try to ask other women you know like friends, family etc for this question for their suggestions?

    it is already a good step that you are thinking about these things and wanting to make sure that your current fitness level is maintained.

    i think that the most important thing is to make sure you have a properly well balanced diet, do exercise and get some careful exposure to the sun (for vitamin D). i say careful to make sure it is not overdone and hence causing skin damage. drinking adequate fluids and getting enough sleep are also beneficial and can aid in digestion and emotional problems,

     the previous poster is correct about bone problems being a concern and that is often linked to vitamin D.

    supplements are useful for short periods of time if you are in a situation where you cannot eat properly but it is better to eat properly. remember that supplements are made by companies and they want to make money so of course they will claim all sorts of wonderful things.

    if you have any concerns then speak to your GP and maybe ask to see a qualified registered dietician.

    hope this doesn't sound too dull!

    So you would like to age healthily? Good news then because it is possible to do so. Many illnesses in later life (or even when young) come about because of bad nutrition. Many people know this but still eat the wrong foods. But if you are prepared to make changes with your diet you are on the way to better health. So the advice is to eat as many vegetables (of all colours) as you can. However cook them in the proper way: just cooked and not soft !! And eat fruit of course (a bit of fruit for breakfast and as a desert for tea is fine.

    Lastly, I m not going to go into the debate about for or against supplements but wil say that they have a role to play in any healthy life style. I would take calcium and magnesium. I also would take a good multi vitamin and mineral. I always buy in a good healthfood store. We are lucky to have a health food store in our area, which is run by a man who has a lot of knowledge of supplements. Years ago I had calpal tunnel syndrome and I was advised to take Vit. B6 and it actually went away !!!! So in your multivitamin there should be all the B vitamins and make sure all the vitamins are in the right amounts because if you buy from super markets etc the amount of vitamins and minerals are too small. For example vitamin C shoould be 250 milligrams and in winter you could even take more (500 milligrams) to prevent colds.

    And really lastly I think that the book 'the inflammation Syndrome'by Jack Challem  (your nutrition plan for great health, weight loss and pain free living), was a fantastic eye opener for me. I would highly recommend it if you want to make the life changes needed to life the rest of your life being healthy and have a fantastic biological age (the biological age is more important than your age in years).

    I hope this has helped.

    All the best

    Hi,

    I go swimming 2/3 times a week or whenever I can but otherwise I am very bad with doing exercises even though I know I should. I am a teacher and on my feet all day sowhen I get home I just sink into a chair instead of doing some exercises. So my Wi is just lonely sitting in a corner and my walking boots are polished and clean.

    Take Care

    Angelika

    You are right though that exercises are an important part of being healthy (the book will also tell ou this).
