Dr Oz’s Vitamin Cheat Sheet After 35 Years Old
Today Dr. Oz is filling up a bag of tricks with essential items to get you through the various issues that plague you as you get older. He’s asked for help from a few female experts to put together the most important products to be included in what he calls his After-35 Survival Kit. They added the key things you need to relieve stress (lemon balm extract), a botox alternative (Siloxane and Peptide Cream) and reduce bloating with pineapple ice cubes, but now Doctor Oz also has suggestions on the four vitamins you should be taking once you hit the age of 35. Dr. Oz polled his audience before the show and a whopping 74% admitted that they have no idea what vitamins they should be taking and I must confess I’m with them as I have no idea either.
Dr Oz: 4 Vitamins for Women Over 35
Dr. Oz says while it can be very confusing to know what vitamins you should be taking and the exact time of day to take them, but he has a cheat sheet with four that you must start adding to your diet on a daily basis. Many of us are often confused about dosing while others actually buy different vitamins, but don’t take them consistently. Dr. Oz is ready to give you a clear of understanding of each vitamin and why you need them and when you should be taking them.

Dr Oz Multivitamins for Women 35 & Over
Dr. Oz says that Multivitamins are pretty straightforward and pretty important to add to our diet because 90% of people simply don’t get the vitamins they need from the foods they eat alone. He says this is especially true with women because we are so busy taking care of everyone else and often forget to eat or don’t eat what we need.
What Ingredients Should Be In Multivitamins:
- Vitamin A
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
The key, according to Dr. Oz, is to get 100% of the daily recommended value of each vitamin, not the 200% that a lot of multivitamins have because more is not always better and it can actually turn against you. He also explains the importance of taking ½ in the morning and half at night, so the vitamins are always in your body.
Dr Oz: Calcium with Magnesium Prevents Constipation
Calcium is important for your bones, but as you get older your bones weaken more rapidly, making it important for your body, especially in women over the age of 35. Dr. Oz says it is very hard to get enough calcium in your diet alone, so he recommends a supplement with Magnesium. The Magnesium helps to prevent discomfort when going to the bathroom or feeling bound up or constipated.
Dr Oz: Vegetarian Omega 3s Don’t Taste “Fishy”
Omega 3 Fats come in many different forms and are essential to take once you reach the age of 35 because they reduce stress & improve memory. They are most often found in foods like fish, but we simply don’t get enough fish in our diet or we eat fish that doesn’t have Omega 3s naturally. Dr. Oz says to be certain you buy Omega 3s in a dark-colored bottle to prevent light from penetrating and destroying the vitamins on the inside. DHA Omega 3s are similar to Fish Oils, but they are vegetarian so they don’t have the fish taste.
