5 Tips for Women's Health Month
Here are five empowering tips that women can incorporate into their lives during Women's Health Month.
- Prioritize Self-Care: Take time for yourself and prioritize self-care activities that nurture your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation, such as practicing yoga, meditating, reading a book, taking a bath, or enjoying a hobby.
- Get Regular Exercise: Physical activity is crucial for maintaining good health. Engage in regular exercise that suits your interests and lifestyle. Whether it's going for a walk, dancing, cycling, or attending fitness classes, find activities that you enjoy and make them a part of your routine.
- Schedule Preventive Health Check-ups: Regular check-ups and screenings are essential for early detection and prevention of potential health issues. Make sure to schedule appointments for routine screenings like mammograms, Pap smears, and blood pressure checks. Consult your healthcare provider to discuss any specific health concerns or questions you may have.
- Embrace a Balanced Diet: Nourish your body with a balanced and nutritious diet. Incorporate plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats into your meals. Limit processed foods, sugary snacks, and excessive caffeine consumption. Stay hydrated by drinking an adequate amount of water throughout the day. Don't forget to incorporate the proper vitamins you need as well.
- Foster Strong Social Connections: Surround yourself with a supportive network of friends, family, and loved ones. Strong social connections can have a positive impact on your mental and emotional well-being. Engage in activities that allow you to connect with others, such as joining clubs, volunteering, or participating in community events.
Remember, Women's Health Month is not just about focusing on these tips for a month; it's about incorporating them into your everyday life to prioritize your health and well-being all year round.
Vitamins that are Important for Women's Health
Several vitamins are important for women's health. Here are some key vitamins that play crucial roles in supporting women's well-being:
- Vitamin D: Essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth, as well as supporting immune function. It also plays a role in reducing the risk of certain cancers, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D can be obtained from sunlight exposure, fortified foods, or supplements.
- Vitamin B12: Vital for red blood cell production, nerve function, and DNA synthesis. Adequate B12 levels are particularly important for women following a vegetarian or vegan diet, as it is primarily found in animal products. Sources include meat, fish, dairy products, and fortified cereals or supplements.
- Folate (Folic Acid): Crucial for women of childbearing age, as it supports proper fetal development and reduces the risk of neural tube defects during early pregnancy. Folate is found in leafy greens, citrus fruits, legumes, and fortified grain products.
- Iron: Essential for the production of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body. Women, especially during menstruation, have higher iron needs to prevent iron deficiency anemia. Good sources of iron include lean meats, poultry, fish, legumes, and fortified cereals.
- Calcium: Important for building and maintaining strong bones, preventing osteoporosis, and supporting nerve and muscle function. Dairy products, leafy greens, fortified plant-based milk, and calcium supplements are common sources of calcium.
- Vitamin C: An antioxidant that supports immune function, promotes wound healing, and aids in the absorption of iron from plant-based sources. Citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes, and leafy greens are excellent sources of vitamin C.

Ron Beckenfeld's Story
As a young man Ron Beckenfeld, the owner of Superior Source Vitamins, was into fitness, always worked out, and wanted to stay healthy. So finding the right vitamins seemed like the perfect fit for him when deciding to go into business.
Ron started selling vitamins out of the trunk of his car in 1964 and in 1969 he started Continental Vitamin Company; it became a life-long passion to establish a supplement company that cares about health.
In 1998 he started Superior Source MicroLingual® due to his concern about his father’s Parkinson’s condition. “When my father developed Parkinson’s, he already had a heart condition. I realized he had problems swallowing traditional large tablets, which inspired me to find a way to help my dad and others who had similar problems swallowing the vitamins they needed.”
“My dad had nitroglycerine tablets, which are very small and dissolve instantly, and he asked me why I couldn’t make vitamins like these. This was the “ah-ha!” moment that started the evolution of instant dissolving tablets, and Superior Source was born.”
“I was also concerned about all the additives and excessive amount of other ingredients found in conventional vitamin tablets, so decided to create a vitamin that was small and pure where potency isn’t lost in the high acid environment of the stomach.”
Ron started with a B-12 quick-dissolving soft-molded tablet and continued to develop an entire line of clean and pure MicroLingual® instant dissolve tablets where users didn’t have to worry about swallowing.
“So here I am 50+ years later, still passionate and profoundly providing people with vitamin tablets that are easy to take anywhere with no water necessary and absorbed quickly into their systems.”
