When we talk about female health, it is wrong to assume that only female reproductive health is concerned with this topic. Instead, the genetic and hormonal dissimilarities between male and female organisms are the main reason why our bodies work in different ways – note that there is no “better” or “superior” gender, only different and we can blame the evolution on it.
Female reproductive hormones are signal molecules our endocrine glands produce that regulate the metabolic processes. However, their effects are not limited to the reproductive system only, they influence many other organs as well. For example, estrogens not only regulate the menstrual cycle, they also affect proper bone mineralisation and prevent bone loss which is the main cause of osteoporosis, protect blood vessels by keeping them flexible thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, and in the skin they improve its thickness and health by preventing the degradation of collagen which leads to skin aging.
As you can see, a plethora of complex processes occur in a woman’s body, and in order to keep a woman feeling and looking good regardless of her age, the key is a balanced daily intake of nutrients that contain proper levels of necessary vitamins and minerals. Sadly, it often happens that a woman falls short on certain nutrient(s) that are essencial for maintaining her well-being, and a result women experience health issues. In order to prevent diseases caused by lack of certain macro- and micronutrients, the diet should be enriched with certain supplementation products.
Dr Hall has designed a revolutionary product that contains the necessary amounts of vitamins and minerals including iron, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and a specially designed forumula to keep a woman’s bones strong and healthy. Iron is emphasized here because it is an essencial mineral for our body, with its primary role being the transport of oxygen through the body since it is a crutial part of haemoglobin and the maturation of red blood cells. Women are especially prone to developing iron deficiency because they lose a significant amount of blood every month during their period. According to the CDC, almost 10% of women in the USA are iron deficient, which is a very serious number and therefore iron deficiency must be treated vigorously in order to prevent long term consequences. The first symptoms of iron deficiency include fatique and getting tired easily, pale skin, hair loss, slower healing of skin wounds and predisposition to skin infections such as candidiasis, impetigo and furuncles. If you notice any of these symptoms, you ought to do a blood test to see whether you’re anaemic, and depending on the result you should start substitution therapy to help you raise your levels of blood iron.
This Integrative Essentials complex also contains Omega-3 fatty acids which are considered to be the “good kind of fat” because they reduce the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, help with certain psychiatric conditions such as depression, Alzheimer’s and dementia, and they are also important for pregnant or women who are trying to conceive because there is strong evidence that omega-3, especially DHA are important for proper development of the fetus.
The MCHC (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate) is a complex crystalline compound that consists of all the essential minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, as well as protein matrix and other organic and growth factors that are necessary for maintaining a woman’s bones in good shape. This is especially important for women in menopause, since the levels of estrogens that protect the bones drop and women are at risk of developing osteoporosis by losing bone mass.
Last but not least, the antioxidant capsules contained in every package contain high levels of natural fruit and vegetable extracts. Antioxidants defend our bodies from the harmful free radicals that come from the environment or are generated intrinsically in our bodies, and prevent the oxidative stress that leads to not only skin aging, but also many other diseases including cancer.
This product is designed for simple use, and one packaging is enough for one month of all-round care for a woman’s health. Inside the package you wil find 60 individual packets, containing 6 capsules each. Consumation of the contents of two packets a day is usually the way to use this product, although patients are always advised to consult their healthcare practitioners prior to starting the treatment.
We at Dr Hall Clinic strongly encourage women to take charge of their health and work in partnership with their doctors, to educate themselves on health issues, and especially to pay attention to the signals your bodies give you. If you feel like something about your body is not quite right, you are always more than welcome to schedule an appointment in Dr Hall’s clinic and have a professional take care of it.
