Multivitamins are hardly a new concept. When we think of supplementation, we tend to instinctively refer to “taking our vitamins.” Our bodies do need a basic standard of nutrition, which multivitamin supplements seek to provide. Moving away from the multivitamin and into the realm of multi supplements gives a broader range of health support. For example, multivitamins with minerals are associated with improved heart health for women.
Specific needs based on factors like gender and stage of life are not necessarily addressed when taking a one size fits all supplement. Formulating a multi supplement specifically for women involves an understanding of the concerns and issues women face, as well as their nutritional needs. Looking at bone health and the risks of osteoporosis for aging women, including a probiotic may improve mineral bioavailability in order to improve bone health. By understanding the common health concerns women face and addressing them with a multifaceted approach, we can provide a well-rounded multi that will support women, young and old, improve their health and well being.

Women’s bodies are taxed on a daily basis, even when it’s not visible externally. Hormonal shifts, monthly cycles, pregnancy and birth, external stress, and aging all take a heavy toll on the body. While good nutrition is always an utmost priority, the strain of day to day life and internal fluctuation can warrant supplementation as a supportive measure.
The blend of vitamins, minerals, and herbs in the MaxLiving Women’s Multi are combined to support women’s health and well being, in spite of the rigors of daily life. Each ingredient is chosen to meet a specific need, and the combination works together synergistically to ensure maximum effectiveness.
- Combining a strong multi supplement with antioxidants maximizes the efficiency of both ingredients.12 This increased bioavailability can lead to improved levels of inflammation and better heart health.
- Breast cancer is increasingly common and, unfortunately, tends to spread rapidly, making breast health both a public and personal concern. While no supplement can guarantee the successful prevention or treatment of cancer, including turmeric and green tea extracts as part of a healthy daily routine is beneficial. Both have been shown preliminarily to protect against breast cancer.13,14
- Our stress management blend incorporates both rhodiola and lemon balm, medicinal herbal extracts. Both herbs have shown excellent results when tested for effects on stress management. Effects of attenuated stress and generalized lifestress were relieved in their respective trials, inspired by traditional use for stress relief.15,16
- While a number of factors and components in Women’s Multi will contribute to bone health, the mineral and vitamin combination is worth noting. Calcium is the most well known nutrient for bone health, but it cannot stand alone. Magnesium helps the body to absorb calcium, probiotics may play a role, and vitamins D and K are important players, as well. Vitamin D works in conjunction with minerals to help the body create adequate bone strength throughout the aging process17
- Oxidative stress comes in many forms, but its effects on the heart are consistently worrisome. Antioxidant intake can help to mitigate this stress and repair damage on a cellular level. Vitamins, minerals such as selenium, coenzyme q-10, carotenoids and flavonoids are excellent sources of antioxidants and valuable partners in the pursuit of heart health18.
- The human body contains more bacterial microbes than human cells, so the balance of beneficial flora against detrimental flora is very important. Probiotic consumption can help to tilt the scales in favor of beneficial bacteria, which affects digestive health in a two-fold fashion. Improved digestive wellness can relieve symptoms and even causes of disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease and infectious disorders19. And a balanced and healed digestive tract can help the body to absorb nutrients more effectively.
- If the skin is a mirror of internal health, a well-rounded supplement is a first stop for hair, skin, and nail health even before creams and lotions. Horsetail is rich in silica, which is an important component of integumentary system health.20 MSM has anti-inflammatory properties that may help with skin health, and L-Proline is a component of collagen, which is the building block for healthy skin.
- Iron is necessary for the transport of oxygen into the blood. Women are at a greater risk for iron deficiency, therefore supplementation can be beneficial.
