Good health is never as important as when you are a mom. Whether you are pregnant, breastfeeding or just taking care of your kids, you need to be healthy to give them what they need. A healthy diet and exercise are important, but sometimes you need a little extra help to get all the nutrients you need. At Cherry Street Pharmacy, we care about all our customers’ health, especially those busy moms. Here are four important supplements for moms of all ages that can help maximize your health and vitality.
A Good Multi-Vitamin
When you are pregnant, your doctor will tell you that taking a pre-natal multi-vitamin supplement is important and may prescribe you one that we can fill here at Cherry Street Pharmacy. However, a good multi-vitamin is important for all moms, not just moms-to-be. While you should be getting the vitamins and minerals you need from your diet, a multi-vitamin is an insurance policy that you are getting enough of everything. It is a nutrient insurance policy for those days when just getting any meal on the table is difficult, much less one that is perfectly balanced.
More is being learned about intestinal health and how important probiotics are to our overall health. Your ‘gut’ helps maintain your first defense against illnesses and boosts your immune system. It is hard to care for your family if you are constantly fighting off colds, flu and other illnesses. A good probiotic can improve your immune system and digestive health to keep you healthy and active. It can also help replace lost good bacteria, important if you ordered an antibiotic from us at Cherry Street Pharmacy.
Getting enough good fats in your diet is good for your health, but it is not always easy. Fish are a great source, but not everyone loves to eat fish every week. Omega-3 supplements give you the good fats you need for good heart health, beautiful skin and overall health, either through fish oils or plants. It is beneficial for expecting moms and women or men of all ages.
Calcium and Minerals
While your multi-vitamin may have a small amount of minerals in the formula, to get the right amount of calcium and other minerals, a separate supplement is needed. Plus, some medications that you may order from us at Cherry Street Pharmacy may deplete minerals in your body. Stay strong and prevent osteoporosis by keeping up on your mineral supplements.
