Fact or Fiction? Women and Men Need Different Vitamins

Fact: One size doesn't fit all when it comes to vitamins. "The most important issue is that many women don't get sufficient calcium and vitamin D," says Delafuente. And women who are pregnant or menstruating need more iron than men. While some brands advertise to women, the important thing to do is meet the daily recommended amounts of key nutrients. Make sure you're getting a minimum of 1000 mg of calcium (1200 mg if you're 50 or older), 600 international units (IUs) of vitamin D and 18 mg of iron daily (27 mg if you're pregnant).
