Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
What supplements should a woman take in addition to a daily multi-vitamin?
A: Supplement use greatly depends on the age of the woman in combination with her physical conditioning. In addition to quality multivitamins, females close to the age of menopause should take calcium and vitamin D. During postpartum recovery, iron-rich green foods should be incorporated into the diet. Another good practice, irrespective of age, is to include antioxidant rich foods in the diet.
