Nutrient deficiencies in women most commonly occur from not getting enough food, or enough of the right foods in our diets and from poor absorption. Unfortunately, as we age our bodies begin to change, and so do our nutritional needs. That’s why eating a healthy balanced diet and supplementing are especially important as an adult in order to help prevent age-related deficiencies and improve quality of life.
