As I’ve been going through a bad patch with my health recently, I was happy to start a trial of some supplements in order to see if they can improve my wellbeing. The Ultra Women Daily Multi nutrient caplets have all the vitamins and minerals that I’m hoping will help some of the problems affecting me recently.
Holland and Barrett are a large chain of health stores, as I’m sure most of know, stocking many different supplements that can be helpful throughout times of need for health. It may be worth taking multivitamins if you have health problems where sometimes you can lack in certain nutrients and, also if you are not getting nutrients from the food in your diet if it’s not quite as it should be.
Ultra Woman Daily Multi
For me with Fibromyalgia, the body can lack in nutrients such as Magnesium, Vit B12 and Zinc. Plus, I’ve been going through peri-menopause for the last few years where my hormones are all over the place and periods are either sparse or really close together, but pretty much always involve heavy blood loss. Due to this, I was so anaemic last year I had to take iron prescribed by the GP before I the hospital would do my hip operation and, now it seems I’m be anaemic again. So, Riboflavin, Copper, Vit D, Vit B6 and Calcium, plus other nutrients contained in Ultra Woman should be helpful, not only for the haemoglobin in the blood,but for the thyroid, muscles, bones and issues with fatigue too.

So, I’ve started to take a course of these, one per day with a meal, and I hope to see and feel a difference in my health in around 3 months time. It takes a few months for most supplements to start to have an effect on the body so, I will be back with an update in a few months time, hopefully with some good results.
So, if you have issues like me or, bad periods and fatigue, it might be worth adding something like these into your daily diet but, if unsure check with a health professional for advice.
