    The female body needs vitamins and minerals so it can function normally. If you want to preserve your health and longevity, pay attention to these vitamins and minerals that make sure your body works perfectly.

Magnesium

This is an extremely important mineral for women’s health, and especially positively affects the health of the nerves, muscles, bones and the overall immunity. Protects against stress, and natural sources are green vegetables, such as spinach, grains of whole grains, nuts and seeds.

Folic acid

It is a very important vitamin that helps build new cells, protects pregnancy and plays an important role in the health of the heart and the entire cardiovascular system. Good natural source of folic acid are legumes, soy, blue fish and fruits, such as avocado or orange.

Biotin

Biotin, which is still called vitamin B7 or vitamin X, is responsible for proper metabolism in the body, especially for the processing of sugar in energy, and it also affects the health of the skin. It can be found in chicken, fish, bananas, mushrooms, carrots, beer yeast and egg yolks.

Vitamin B12

This extremely important vitamin is necessary for normal brain functioning, but it also prevents heart disease and stroke. It keeps the nerves and blood cells healthy, helps build DNA, and is important for vegetarians and vegans because it prevents anemia. The largest amounts of vitamin B12 can be found in blue fish, especially in sardines, then in meat (organically grown or meat of animals fed with natural foods), in eggs, milk and dairy products.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is actually a hormone and is responsible for strengthening bones, calcium absorption, healthy immunity, normal functioning of the nerves and thyroid gland, and can also prevent breast cancer and help in treating it. It is mostly found in fish oil and meat, in milk and dairy products and in the yolks. Of course, the best source of vitamin D is hidden in the sun, but most people fail to soak it from that source. That’s why experts recommend taking vitamin D as a dietary supplement.

Calcium

This powerful mineral is responsible for the strength of the bones and muscles, and plays an important role in the normal functioning of the blood. It is also important for maintaining healthy blood pressure. Natural sources of calcium are milk (if not too much processed) and dairy products, sardines, vegetables, nuts, algae and dried fruits.
