Celebrating Women’s Health
With women’s reproductive rights in the United States under siege, it only feels right to celebrate the biology that we have and highlight a few specific supplements to honor ourselves this month.
Barlean’s Evening Primrose Oil: A source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), EPO is an Omega 6 fatty acid that is crucial to women’s menstrual health: eases the myriad of symptoms associated with PMS and Menopause including cyclical breast pain and menstrual cramps. EPO has long been used to treat hot flashes during the transition to menopause, reduces the severity of eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, and osteoporosis. Be sure to check with one of our pharmacists if you are currently taking any blood thinning medications, antipsychotic or HIV medications.
Allergy Research Group Essential Women’s Probiotics: Most of us are aware of the necessity of maintaining a healthy gut, but as women, it’s important to incorporate probiotics to meet our specific needs. ARG’s Essential Biotic Women’s provides ten human probiotic strains, specifically formulated for women: supports healthy balance of flora in the genitourinary tract, healthy estrogen levels, and may inhibit the growth and adhesion of pathogens on the vaginal and urethral mucosa.
Celebrating women’s bodies supports the community at large. With the use of preventative care and keeping the conversation going around our health, we can maintain control over our bodies and the decisions we make regarding our own health. Come see one of our Wellness Consultants at either Dripping Springs Pharmacy in Dripping Springs or Lamar Plaza Drug Store in Austin to celebrate your health today!
Best In health,
