Wellwoman 50+ has been specifically designed to help safeguard the nutritional needs of women aged 50 and above and forms part of the Wellwoman range, the UK's number 1 women's supplement brand.
There is now a great deal of research evidence to suggest that micronutrient supplementation in individuals aged over 50 can be beneficial.
Wellwoman 50+ contains a comprehensive range of 26 vitamins, minerals and plant derived nutrients to support key areas of health important to women over 50, including heart, brain and eye health.
Supporting an Active Lifestyle
Getting older shouldn't mean you should have to change your lifestyle and the activities you have always enjoyed. Wellwoman 50+ contains vitamins B6 and B12, copper and iron which contribute to normal energy release. Immune health is also a serious consideration as you get older. Zinc, selenium and vitamins B6, B12 C and D have also been included in the formula as they contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
Your eyes are one of the most complex organs and as you get older it's even more important than ever to look after them. The retina and the lens can be damaged over the years by exposure to sunlight, smoke and pollution. Wellwoman 50+ provides antioxidants vitamin C and E which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress with mineral zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
Heart and Circulation
Wellwoman 50+ contains thiamin (vit.B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart as well as a combination of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 which contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism, and normal red blood cell formation. The formula also includes vitamin C which increases non-haem (plant source) iron absorption. This is especially important with vegetarian diets as iron contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body to all the major organs.
Brain and Nervous System
Thiamin (vit. B1) and vitamins B6 and B12 with biotin and vitamin C contribute to the maintenance of normal function of the nervous system, combined with pantothenic acid which contributes to normal mental performance.

One tablet per day is recommended, with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Wellwoman 50+ should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Wellwoman 50+ is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablet to disintegrate too early.
