Best Supplements for Women Over 40

Not that you need a supplement to keep rocking the way you do. But just in case, these are the ones we recommend you take.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for several things. It is crucial for your brain function, hormone balance, bone health, and mood regulation. Yeah, that sounds like a lot for just one vitamin I know. You’ll want to keep this one coming in generously if you’re going to feel like you are young as the time keeps ticking.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is significant for you after the big 40 because it is an antioxidant. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals that cause oxidative stress in your body. Why is that a big deal? Oxidative stress is mainly responsible for causing inflammation in the body. I don’t need to stress to you why that is something that should concern you. Vitamin E helps keep that inflammation under proper control and can keep the aging in critical places like your skin from creeping up on you.


Magnesium technically isn’t a vitamin, but it is very crucial in a wide range of your bodily processes. Some of those are blood glucose management, energy production, and metabolic rate. Magnesium deficiency is common. Some studies say that as many as 50% of adults are magnesium deficient. Make sure you’re getting this guy into your system adequately as father time ticks along. You’ll need it.


Potassium is an electrolyte that aids in overall health. Electrolytes are like the special helpers for much of the infrastructure of your body. They aid in many cellular functions in the body such as moving waste out of cells, transporting nutrients into cells, and nerve signaling. They also help in bodily functions like muscle contraction, including your heart’s contraction.

So yeah, they’re kind of like one of the oils for the engine of your body. They keep things moving along smoothly. You don’t want to be deficient with this bad boy when you’re over 40. If you’re going to beat father time, you need to be moving along smoothly.

Vitamin B

Fatigue is always the thing breathing on your neck as you get older and older. It’s probably the first thing that you start to notice as you get up there in years. Vitamin B is often considered the champ among supplements when it comes to combating fatigue. One of the biggest obstacles in combating aging is, of course, the psychological one. If you feel like you’re worn down, you are more likely to slow down and slack off generally with your health. Getting a functional vitamin B complex is something you should be on top off if you’re looking to be in this game for the long run.

Omega 3’s

Omega 3’s are another combatant you can enlist along with guys like vitamin E in the battle against inflammation. Keeping your body in a beautiful state of equilibrium so that it rides the 40s and 50s and beyond should be a top concern for you and you can’t do that if you are constantly losing the battle against that thing called inflammation. Omega 3s are very useful in the fight against inflammation. They are also helpful for a host of other things, including heart health, brain health, preventing cancer, and fighting off autoimmune diseases.
