Women’s Health

Considering the numerous physiological and hormonal changes a woman’s body under goes during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and later on in menopause, women’s nutritional needs highly vary and this makes them more vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies. Tailoring nutrient intake to match nutritional needs is important to maintain optimal health and quality of life throughout those different stages of life. Women of all ages should ensure adequate intake of vitamins and minerals that can help in preventing some of the symptoms that can predispose them to more serious health conditions.

Lallemand continuously innovates by optimizing yeast production processes to create products that can be used in dietary supplements formulated for the women’s health market… reviving the 1930’s ‘yeast for your health’ motto.

Several inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) products containing elevated levels of specific vitamins and minerals are offered by Lallemand.

Watching Out for Anaemia

Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anaemia, which can affect women of all ages. It can lead to fatigue, weakness and loss of work productivity. A majority of women aged 18-49 years old do not consume sufficient amounts of iron-rich foods.

Vegetarian women and athletes especially have greater risks of being iron deficient.

Childbearing years

The nutrient needs for pregnant and breastfeeding women are generally greater than those of other women, especially for Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, and Folate. Those elevated needs may be difficult to meet from dietary intake alone.

Minimizing the Impact of Menopause

Menopause is a natural hormonal change that occurs as part of the normal aging process where women go from a reproductive to a non-reproductive state. Hormonal fluctuations, along with inadequate diet, increase the risks for osteoporosis and autoimmune thyroid diseases. Adequate Calcium, Vitamin D, Selenium, and Iodine intake therefore becomes primordial.

Maintaining Optimal Brain Function

Several factors contribute to the cognitive decline observed in women from midlife, including suboptimal nutrition. Low plasma levels of B-Complex Vitamins, for example, have been associated with cognitive decline and dementia.

Bio availability of Yeast Micronutrients

Yeast's ability to incorporate certain vitamins and minerals within its cells makes it an ideal natural ingredient for dietary supplements formulated to help women meet their unique nutritional needs. Compared to pure forms of certain minerals and vitamins, those found in yeast have been shown in several studies to have slower absorption rates and higher bioavailability in animals and humans.
