Unfavorable environmental conditions, stress, and unhealthy diet put the health of women in constant danger. Recently, women are increasingly faced with hormonal disruptions, as well as with problems during conception and pregnancy. The number of dangerous oncological diseases (breast and ovarian cancer) is also growing.
Because of these alarming statistics, it is very important for women to take care of their health: in particular, to eat a balanced diet and provide their body with all the necessary nutrients. That’s why it is recommended to consume cedar nut oil enriched with sea buckthorn berries — a healing cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and other useful substances. Let's take a look at the composition of the oil to understand what makes it effective for maintaining women's health.
Cedar nut oil enriched with sea buckthorn provides the body with the nutrients necessary to maintain women's health, including during pregnancy and lactation: vitamin A, C, E, choline (B4), folic acid, iron, calcium, and iodine.
Vitamin A and its precursors (carotenoids)
Vitamin A is involved in the formation / regeneration of soft tissues and mucous membranes. This is especially important in the postpartum period. In addition, this vitamin helps in the proper formation of the fetal organism during the pregnancy.
Carotenoids are metabolic precursors of vitamin A. Their high content is indicated by the red or orange color of the fruit. Carotenoids help prevent breast cancer. Orange sea buckthorn, as you can imagine, is rich in carotenoids. Considering that cedar nut oil contains a large amount of vitamin A, it becomes clear: cedar nut oil with sea buckthorn is optimal for women's health.
This vitamin is essential for the synthesis of collagen - the "building frame" of all tissues in our body. With a lack of vitamin C, premature signs of aging begin to appear. Therefore this vitamin is vital to prolong youth and beauty. During pregnancy, it contributes to the correct development of the placenta.
Sea buckthorn contains more vitamin C than most citrus fruits, so cedar nut oil enriched with sea buckthorn has a rejuvenating effect on the entire body.
Vitamin E (tocopherol)
One of the most important "women's vitamins”. Cedar nut oil is the source of it; sea buckthorn also contains a lot of vitamin E.
This vitamin is responsible for the conception of a child, development of the fetus, and milk production in breastfeeding women. In addition, it is responsible for mental balance, as it supports the nervous system. Vitamin E helps a woman fight stress that, as we said, has become an integral part of modern life.
Vitamin B4 (choline)
The source of this vitamin is sea buckthorn. It helps to prolong youthfulness just like vitamin C; however, not from outside, but brain youth. Choline is essential for the prevention of Alzheimer's disease. It also supports the nervous system and is responsible for the ability to concentrate.
Choline is a part of phospholipids and directly affects the metabolism of fats, promoting their utilization. Therefore, it helps to maintain a healthy weight.
Folic acid (vitamin B9)
Folic acid is found in large quantities in both sea buckthorn and cedar nut oil. It plays an important role in the development of the embryo, especially during the formation of the brain. It also stimulates hematopoiesis.
With a lack of folic acid, the risk of miscarriage increases significantly. Disorders in the formation of the fetal neural tube are also possible. Doctors recommend to start taking folic acid as soon as a woman starts planning a pregnancy.
Minerals for women: iron, calcium, and iodine
Due to the combination of two main components, sea buckthorn extract on the base of cedar nut oil contains many of the following important minerals for women:
- Iron. During normal menstruation, a woman loses about 2.4 mg of iron daily. It is very important to make up for these losses. In addition, most pregnant women are affected by iron deficiency anemia. As the main component of hemoglobin, iron influences most of the processes in our body.
- Calcium. This nutrient is especially important for women over 45 years of age as a prevention of osteoporosis and other diseases associated with our musculoskeletal system.
- Iodine. Iodine deficiency leads to menstrual irregularities. Iodine plays a primary role in the functioning of the thyroid gland and affects the hormonal status of the whole organism.
Thus, cedar nut oil enriched with sea buckthorn provides the body with the nutrients necessary to maintain women's health, including during pregnancy and lactation: vitamin A, C, E, choline (B4), folic acid, iron, calcium, and iodine.
