Introducing Solgar¶¯s VM Prime For Women, the advanced multiple nutrient formula that is tailored to help address the specific needs of women going through the menopausal transition. Of particular concern to menopausal women is the management of symptoms, bone support and cardiovascular health.¶¿The formulation provides calcium and magnesium (calcium 300mg, magnesium 150mg) as citrates, which ensures that these minerals are easy to absorb and are utilised by those with compromised digestion. In addition to these minerals, VM Prime For Women provides Vitamins D3 and K2.
Recent research has highlighted the importance of vitamin K to calcium utilisation, with K2 emerging as having superior bioavailability to K1.
