Why women need more...?

by &Me Bioactive Beverage 01 Oct 2021

It is a widely known fact that calorie needs of women differ from that of men. Overall, men have a larger body structure and muscle mass and hence the calories needed to maintain the same body type will inevitably be greater. Women, on the other hand, have considerably lower calorie requirements. If you compare an average-sized man and woman of the same height and weight - women burn 2000 calories per day while her male counterpart will burn an excess of 800 calories (2800 calories in total).


But that’s just calories. What about the nutrients?


Iron


Calcium


Vitamins


Let’s dive in a little deeper.


Iron


Women use a lot more iron than men.


Remember that time of the month?


The blood. The Iron loss.


Women’s iron reserves deplenish as they move on from adolescence through menstruation to pregnancy and later. According to research 51% of women, aged 20-35, suffer from Anemia. Oral contraceptives and intrauterine devices (contraceptives) are also a major cause of anemia as they increase blood flow and this leads to loss of iron.


With age, their body’s demand for iron and calcium increases. If this is not catered to by improving diet, the demand remains unfulfilled and hence leads to chronic deficiencies.


Long standing anemia deficiency can lead to mental changes and also put additional burden on the heart muscles as they have to pump more oxygen to all cells in the body. Worst case scenario, this may also be a cause for heart failure in the coming years.


Iron supplements should only be taken upon consultation of a doctor. Iron is best absorbed when taken with orange juice rather than water (Vitamin C aids absorption of iron).


So ladies, let’s get some Sangrias in the house, shall we? Hoot hoot!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
