Women's challenges in prioritizing wellbeing

Modern life requires a lot from a woman: to prove herself as a partner, wife, mother, mother-to-be, etc. Most women have goals to be successful, attractive, and youthful-looking, to name just a few. Every woman tries to meet expectations and overcome challenges. But over time, a woman may feel like she is deviating more and more from the ideal model she has imposed on herself. Theoretically, she knows what physical and emotional challenges to expect at any stage of life, but, quite often, the number of these issues can grow rapidly, mainly due to prolonged neglect of important factors that contribute to a woman’s well-being.

How lifestyle factors can affect nutritional intake

The best way to achieve optimal health comes from a balanced diet, a healthy and active lifestyle with a proper amount of movement and exercise, sleep, and stress reduction. But this is not always easy to accomplish. Women may not be getting sufficient nutrients from foods due to their diet or lifestyle. For those reasons, they may choose to take supplements to support their nutritional goals.

In addition, many women try to control their weight using a variety of popular approaches. Intermittent fasting is one of these approaches. When intermittent fasting, women give themselves a smaller window of time for meals. Some participants who fast decide to eat only one meal a day, and it’s hard to imagine all the necessary nutrients getting introduced into the body during that small window of time.

Choosing the right supplement

Choosing the right supplements depends on age, family predispositions, and, more than anything else, lifestyle.

While researching women’s supplements, the following might show up:

  • Vitamin D for immune system support, bones, muscle, etc. 1
  • Magnesium for a normal psychological function and the nervous system
  • Calcium for bones 3
  • Vitamin B complex for metabolism and energy4
  • Biotin for hair and skin beauty5

While these are good nutrients to have in your diet, your complex body needs many more nutrients to function at an optimal level.

For example, many women struggle with responding to frequent stressful situations.

The list of ingredients recommended for daily use for people prone to lower mood includes a long list of vitamins and minerals with particular emphasis on vitamins A, D, E, C, B complex, folic acid, choline, inositol, boron, calcium, chromium, iodine, magnesium, potassium, selenium, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids. That’s a lot of nutrients!

Fortunately, the search for the perfect combination of the most important basic nutrients is over. 4Life scientists formulated a great product—RiteStart

Why choose Ritestart?

By using RiteStart, women receive the immune system benefits of vitamins and plant extracts6 combined with 4Life Transfer Factor Plus® Tri-Factor™ Formula, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and other ingredients for general wellness support. This all-in-one product provides everyday support for cardiovascular function6, healthy energy levels7, protection of cells against oxidative stress8, and much more.

RiteStart is a core product for women’s wellbeing, but depending on your particular case, you can add additional supplements into your routine.

Examples of how 4Life supplements can benefit women of different ages:

Olivia, age 25

Olivia is overburdened with balancing work, friends and a healthy lifestyle. She finds herself skipping multiple workouts a week which affects her energy, stress levels, and body image. She increasingly feels stressed and exhausted skipping activities with her friends, especially around her monthly cycle.

What could be beneficial for Olivia?

  • RiteStart™ for overall health and possibly balancing the levels of important nutrients.
  • Pro-TF, a university-tested, high-performance whey and egg protein that contribute to the increase and maintenance of muscle mass.
  • Energy Go Stix with ingredients for mental performance9, tiredness10, concentration and alertness11 during the day.

Sophia, age 50

Sophia is going through many changes in her life including the first stages of menopause, increased stress and reduced energy, all putting additional challenges on her physical and mental health.

Suggested supplements:

Charlotte, age 64

Charlotte has a healthy, active lifestyle. She loves to ride her bike and walk on the beach, read and cook delicious meals for friends and family! Recently she has noticed discomfort in her knees and is concerned with her cognitive health and eye sight as she ages.

She wonders if RiteStart is enough to help her with all her concerns.

The answer for Charlotte:

  • RiteStart™ is an all-in-one product provides vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and 4Life Transfer Factor. Nevertheless, she will achieve a much better experience adding some targeted 4Life products into her regimen.
  • 4Life Transfer Factor ReCall™supports memory16 and the nervous system while helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue17, mental sharpness and peripheral blood flow.
  • 4Life Transfer Factor Vista™ specifically supports the eyes health18, blood circulation in the eye19 and fight the oxidative damage20.
  • Fibro AMJ™ is a food supplement with glucosamine, and ingredients blend for joints21, muscles and bones22, which Charlotte will love!

Three women with three different lifestyles all started with one core product: RiteStart. They could then get extra support with targeted 4Life products, which are ingredients to support specific lifestyle goals.

Explore more products on the 4Life website, and don’t hesitate to change your own supplementation to improve your experience on your journey to an active lifestyle and satisfaction. Each of the examples above have specific health concerns, which necessitate different product recommendations. To find the right women's products for you, go to the 4Life Health Assessment.

Thanks to 4Life’s focus on science-backed products, we, as women, can help ourselves maintain energy and stamina in conducting business and living everyday life. We can also help other women feel healthy, successful, and happy. Lifting each other up is empowering on so many levels.

If we pave the way correctly, we may hear another woman say:

“Women like you pave the way for women like me,
and for that I am grateful."

The most important message to take away from this article is for women to not neglect their basic needs.
