Supplement Recommendations for Women's Health and Wellbeing

IMI's naturopathic team has thoroughly researched and carefully selected high quality supplements from the leading suppliers around the world.

We are at our best when the fundamental nutrients are provided at the optimal daily levels. Our practitioners recommend the following products for supporting women's health and wellbeing.

 


Innate® Response Wholefood Multivitamins for Women (Women’s One Daily, Women’s Multi, Women Over 40)

Non-synthetic nutrients extracted from real vegetables and fruits, specially designed to support optimal health for women (suitable for menstruating teens and older). Unlike synthetic vitamins your body recognizes them as real food, so they absorb and work better without upsetting your tummy. These multivitamins deliver better results because the nutrients are molecularly attached to food elements and amino acids, which is more effective than synthetic ones to deliver to their site of action within your body’s cells. All the antioxidants here are food derived—making them much more safe and active than synthetic vitamins. Free of gluten, dairy, soy, magnesium stearate, herbicides and pesticides.
