Teenagers and diet
An optimum nutritional intake during adolescence and young adulthood can help set the stage for lifelong health. Teenagers need to have sufficient vitamins and minerals to ensure healthy development during growth spurts, plus as they undergo significant physical and biochemical changes in their bodies, the necessity for nutrients greatly increases. The teenage years are perhaps the most significant in terms of hormonal change, and of course emotional stress.
Supporting female health
Wellteen Her is a carefully balanced formula to help maintain vitality and wellness. It provides vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. It also includes iron which contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Government surveys have indicated that the diet of some teenagers may be low in certain nutrients including iron. This is especially true for young women as iron becomes even more vital during puberty, when menstruation commences, and is an important consideration during the monthly cycle.
Skin and hair support
Certain nutrients are of great importance to help maintain healthy looking skin, hair and nails. Wellteen Her provides biotin which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, plus selenium and zinc which contribute to normal hair and nails.
Reduction of tiredness and fatigue and immune support
Juggling studies, sports and a busy social life takes its toll. Wellteen Her includes vitamins B6, B12 and vitamin C which contribute to normal energy release and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
A range of nutrients including zinc, selenium, iron, folic acid, vitamins B6 & B12 and vitamin D contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Recent research has shown that optimum dietary levels of vitamin D may be higher than previously thought, Wellteen Her provides an effective level of vitamin D with 800IU (20µg) of the preferred D3 form. Vitamin C also contributes to normal immune system function during and after intense physical exercise which is a key consideration for those involved in sport.
Wellteen Her includes zinc, iron and iodine which contribute to normal cognitive function, whilst pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance to help support concentration levels when studying. Iron also contributes to normal formation of red blood cells & haemoglobin and contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body to support cells and organs.
Health research shows that even a short period of very strict “dieting” during early teens can lead to low bone density, which causes weak bones in later life. Between 12-17 years of age, up to 90 percent of adult bone mass is laid down, so this is not a time to limit the intake of calcium or vitamin D which help to maintain normal bone health.
Wellteen Her tablets include vitamin D and minerals such as magnesium and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health. Vitamin D also helps the body with the absorption and utilisation of calcium from the diet.
