Intelligent nutrition for women over 50
Wellwoman 50+ has been specifically designed to help safeguard the nutritional needs of women aged 50 and above and forms part of the Wellwoman range, the UK's number 1 women's supplement brand. There is now a great deal of research evidence to suggest that micronutrient supplementation in individuals aged over 50 can be beneficial. Wellwoman 50+ contains a comprehensive range of 26 vitamins, minerals and plant derived nutrients to support key areas of health important to women over 50, including heart, brain and eye health.
Supporting an Active Lifestyle
Getting older shouldn't mean you should have to change your lifestyle and the activities you have always enjoyed. Wellwoman 50+ contains vitamins B6, pantothenic acid and iron which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B2 and copper contribute to normal energy release. Immune health is also a serious consideration as you get older. Zinc, selenium and vitamins B6, B12 C and D have also been included in the formula as they contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
Your eyes are one of the most complex organs and as you get older it's even more important than ever to look after them. The retina and the lens can be damaged over the years by exposure to sunlight, smoke and pollution. Wellwoman 50+ provides antioxidants vitamin C and E which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress with mineral zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
Heart and Circulation
Wellwoman 50+ contains thiamin (vit.B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart as well as a combination of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 which contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism, and normal red blood cell formation. The formula also includes vitamin C which increases non-haem (plant source) iron absorption. This is especially important with vegetarian diets as iron contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body to all the major organs.
Brain and Nervous System
Thiamin (vit. B1) and vitamins B6 and B12 with biotin and vitamin C contribute to the maintenance of normal function of the nervous system, combined with pantothenic acid which contributes to normal mental performance.
Wellwoman 50+ is available in the UK from Boots, Tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose, pharmacies and health stores including Holland & Barrett. Click here to find a stockist near you. Alternatively order online here.

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.[Top]
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.[Top]
