Women and men are different in many respects, and one of the areas that remains separate for men and women is their metabolism and the way that their bodies need vitamins. Women’s vitamins are devised to make sure that women receive the nutrients to maintain a healthy body. Many women’s vitamins specifically focus on slowing the process of aging, boosting the immune system, maintaining a balanced female hormone level, and fill the dietary gaps of a typical woman’s diet. Special concerns for women include osteoporosis, breast and reproductive health, and a higher need for oxygen. As opposed to a general multivitamin, the women’s supplemental vitamins are designed specifically to fulfill the needs of a woman’s body.
