May is Women’s Health Month. This month, we bring attention to the health needs of our mothers, sisters, aunts, and all the women in our lives. While a healthy diet is important for everyone, there are specific nutrients women are recommended to pay extra attention to.

Calcium, Vitamin D, and Magnesium are just some of the nutrients that are especially important for women to eat adequate amounts of. Calcium and Vitamin D help keep bones strong and prevent osteoporosis, which affects women more than men. Magnesium also plays a role in maintaining healthy bones as well as the cardiovascular system.

“Can I just take a supplement to get these nutrients in?” A good rule of thumb is to put food first and then supplements if you are still deficient. Talk with your primary care doctor or registered dietitian to determine what is best for you.
